Vt. Supreme Court to hold hearings in Burlington and St. Albans

Print More

The Vermont Supreme Court is going on the road this week.

The high court will hear eight cases tomorrow at the Vermont District Court in Burlington and six cases will be heard in St. Albans on Wednesday.

Chief Justice Paul Reiber says the goal of the court’s excursion out of its Montpelier chambers is to give lower-court judges, lawyers, law clerks and the public a chance to witness the court in action.

Among the cases being heard will be a challenge to the constitutionality of collecting DNA samples from convicted felons.

At least once a year the Supreme Court also holds a day of hearings at the Vermont Law School in South Royalton.
