NE Supreme Court will hold oral arguments in the SSC Middle School

published October 31, 2019

There will be additional security and activity at the High School / Middle School campus as the Nebraska Supreme Court is holding oral arguments in the auditorium on Friday, November 1, 2019.  This is part of the Nebraska Supreme Court’s outreach and education programming thanks to a partnership with the Nebraska State Bar Foundation.

Two arguments will be heard on Friday, beginning with an educational program at 10:00 a.m.  There will be an open question and answer session with students after the arguments. This visit marks the first time that the Supreme Court will hear arguments in South Sioux City.

Traveling appellate court arguments are part of an ongoing effort of the Nebraska Supreme Court and the legal community to raise awareness of the court processes and the importance of civics in society.

This is a high school program but will be held in the Middle School auditorium.  County Court Judge Kurt Rager, a graduate of South Sioux High School, will join the educational portion of the program to provide background information to students on the court system. Several regional high schools and local dignitaries will be in attendance.
