Government students at Longmont's Silver Creek High School got a firsthand lesson on the judicial system on Monday, listening to oral arguments in two appeals court cases in their auditorium.
After the arguments, the lawyers and judges answered students' questions. A small group of students also ate lunch with the judges. One student asked the judges about the dress code, noting they all wore the same color gray suits. The judges joked that they "shared an email" to coordinate. Another asked the lawyers if they get nervous before arguing a case, with one admitting that he used to throw up before trials.
