Washington Supreme Court

Washington State Supreme Court at Bellevue College
Nov. 14-15, 2016

 

On Monday, Nov.14 and Tuesday, Nov. 15, the nine justices of the Washington State Supreme Court visited Bellevue College to participate in an open forum for students, faculty and the public, and to hear arguments on three cases. Since 1985, the Court has heard cases “on the road” several times a year in an outreach effort allowing citizens to see the court in action in their local communities.
