State Supreme Court to hold Nov. 7 session at Emory Law

Emory Report | Nov. 6, 2014

The Supreme Court of Georgia will hold a special session of oral arguments at Emory University School of Law on Friday, Nov. 7. Court will be held in the law school's Tull Auditorium, beginning at 10 a.m.

Oral arguments are open to the public. Each year, the state's highest court hears cases in locations around the state for the purpose of making the court's business and the judicial process more accessible to the public.

During the session, the court will hear appeals in two cases:  In the first, a woman from Uruguay is appealing her convictions for child cruelty after two little girls in her care drowned in the family pool. The second involves a dispute between two India-American organizations over the right to use the name “Miss India Georgia” to describe a beauty pageant.
