The Arizona Court of Appeals will be holding arguments at Sunnyside High School on March 2, 2016.  This is a rare opportunity witness the judicial branch of government at work and watch attorneys present a real case to three judges from the Arizona Court of Appeals.


The judges have identified State v. Kjolsrud, Kambitsch, 2-CA-CR 1015-0230,-0231 and attorneys representing the two defendants be given 30 minutes to present their arguments and the state will have 25 minutes to present its case.  The case stems from a routine traffic stop that resulted in the arrest of two individuals, Kjolsrud and Kambitsch.  The Court of Appeals is not an evidence-taking court, so there won’t be witnesses and cross-examinations like courts commonly depicted on television.  The focus of the arguments will be on Arizona law and the matters under appeal.
