Maine Supreme Court Visits High Schools this Week
PORTLAND, Maine (AP) - Maine's supreme court is taking a road trip this week, with justices holding court in two high schools.
The court will hear three appeals Wednesday at Mattanawcook Academy in Lincoln. On Thursday, the court will hear three more appeals at Yarmouth High School. Later this month, the justices will visit Presque Isle High School.
Since 2005, the Supreme Judicial Court has heard more than 80 cases while visiting 26 schools across the state. Last year, court was held at Orono and Cape Elizabeth high schools and Nokomis High School in Newport.
Chief Justice Leigh Saufley calls it "a real-life civics lesson to Maine high school students."
