Utah Court of Appeals to hold session at BYU April 2

The Utah Court of Appeals will hold court in the J. Reuben Clark School of Law Moot Court Room at Brigham Young University Friday, April 2, from 9:30 to 11:30 a.m.

The Utah Court of Appeals typically holds court in the Scott M. Matheson Courthouse in Salt Lake City, but periodically holds sessions in other locations to provide an opportunity to enhance public understanding of the court's work and of the judiciary in general.

The hearings will be open to the public.

A panel of three judges from the Utah Court of Appeals will preside, including Judge Gregory K. Orme, Judge Norman H. Jackson, and Judge William A Thorne, Jr.

The oral argument calendar for April 2 will include the following cases: Novell v. Canopy, State v. Callahan and Alternative v. Chapman.

The Utah Court of Appeals primarily reviews decisions by Utah's trial courts. It was created in 1987 as a means of handling the increasing appellate caseload facing the Utah Supreme Court.

The appeals court is made up of seven judges who are appointed by the governor to serve six-year terms, and the court hears cases in panels of three judges.
