The Washington State Court of Appeals, Division II, will hear oral arguments in Vancouver on Tuesday, and the public is invited to attend.
The arguments, taking place outside of the court’s regular Tacoma courtroom, will begin at 9 a.m. in the Clark County Public Service Center at 1300 Franklin St., in the sixth-floor hearing room.
The court travels outside of Tacoma to Southwest Washington at least twice a year to allow interested people an opportunity to view it in action. Attendants will be allowed to ask questions not related to the cases, according to a Washington Courts news release.
The hearings will consist of 15 minutes of arguments for each side of an appeals case. Judges Bradley Maxa, Lisa Sutton and Rich Melnick will hear arguments in the following cases:
State v. Burke — Appeals juvenile court orders denying petitions filed in three separate juvenile court cases to restore petitioner’s right to own or possess a firearm, filed when he was 32 years of age.
Millennium Bulk Terminals-Longview LLC, et al v. Department of Ecology, et al — Appeal from denial of permits to help build coal export terminal in Cowlitz County.
Estate of Brost, Douglas, et al v. Brost — Probate case from Lewis County.
