Partners Volunteer in American Mock Trial Association Opening Round

Partners John LoTurco, Bruce Barket and Kevin Kearon volunteered as judges and scorers this weekend at the American Mock Trial Association’s opening round collegiate mock trial championships at the Cohalan Court Complex in Central Islip, New York.

Over a dozen colleges competed with each team comprised of three student “lawyers” and three student “witnesses”.  Each team represented either the plaintiff or defendant in a negligence lawsuit filed following the death of a TV talk show writer who was mauled by a chimpanzee during a guest appearance by its handler.
