Oral Argument at Virginia Supreme Court


On March 2, 2012, I was pleased to give oral argument to the Virginia Supreme Court on behalf of a local government client.

As is typical, I found the Justices to be polite, attentive, intelligent and inquisitive. Not surprisingly, the justices asked good questions which went to the heart of the issues to be decided. I came away with a renewed respect for the Court and our Virginia judicial system. …. And this was BEFORE I learn what they decide in my client’s case!

As it typical, there were a number of spectators in attendance. If you have never observed at oral argument, consider doing so. I have attended many oral arguments in recent years in local government cases, and have learned a bit about how the justices think and act in general, and some of their views on local government issues in particular. I’ve found this information to be valuable in advising my local government clients.
