The Arizona Supreme Court will hear oral arguments at Prescott High School on April 16 as part of the Court’s oral arguments on the road community outreach program. The Court hears arguments at Arizona’s two state law schools each year and at other local venues around the state, including in Arizona high schools and community centers.

“This is a great opportunity for both our students and our broader community to get a first-hand look at the important work of the AZ Supreme Court,” Prescott High School Principal Mark Goligoski said. “We at Prescott High School are honored to have been chosen to host this unique learning opportunity.”

The school’s prelaw, government, and mock trial students will review the case backgrounds in advance of the arguments and will participate with the rest of the student body in a question and answer session with the justices following the arguments.

Prescott High School alumnus Vice Chief Justice Robert Brutinel will be one of the justices present. Brutinel served on the Yavapai County Superior Court bench for 14 years – six years of which were as it’s presiding judge – before his appointment to the Arizona Supreme Court in 2010. He begins a five-year term as Chief Justice of the Arizona Supreme Court on July 1.

The cases before the court in Prescott and all Arizona Supreme Court oral arguments will be livestreamed at For more information about the oral arguments being held in Prescott, contact Prescott High School Assistant Principal Clark Tenney at
