Interested in Torts, Insurance, Evidence, Aggravated DUI, Plea Agreements, or Oral Advocacy?  See and hear all these issues addressed when Division Two of the Arizona Court of Appeals hears oral arguments at the College of Law on Thursday, October 23 at 2:45 and 3:45 p.m. in Room 146. All students - especially Persuasive Communication, Moot Court, and 1L students - are encouraged to attend. A reception with the judges will follow the arguments. This will be the first time that recently appointed Division Two judge, the Honorable Peter Eckerstrom (formerly a death penalty and criminal defense attorney), will hear arguments at the College of Law. The court will hear two cases. One case involves a precedent-setting abuse of process claim by an injured motorist against Allstate Insurance Co. The second case involves evidentiary and plea-agreement issues in a criminal prosecution for aggravated DUI. The parties' briefs are on reserve under Professor Rabe's name.
