Creighton Law School Hosts Supreme Court Arguments

Wednesday, March 25, 2020

For just over 40 years, the Nebraska Supreme Court has held oral argument sessions at the Creighton University School of Law. Over the years, argument sessions have moved from fall to spring. The October 2, 1979, edition of the Omaha World-Herald announced the Court’s first session visit with the headline, “State Supreme Court to Hold Sessions Here!”

Case types argued on March 5, 2020, included property tax valuation, obstructing a peace officer, Political Subdivision Tort Claims Act (dog bite on public school property), and breach of fiduciary duty. The Gross Appellate Courtroom in the Ahmanson Law Center at Creighton was filled with students who were encouraged to question the Justices following the session.

All argument sessions, whether held at the Supreme Court courtroom or outside of the State Capitol, are open to the public. NET Television streams arguments from both Creighton and UNL.
