Nevada appeals court holding hearings at Boyd School at UNLV

LAS VEGAS (AP) - The Nevada Court of Appeals is going on the road Thursday to hear oral arguments in two cases at the William S. Boyd School of Law at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas.

Chief Judge Michael Gibbons and judges Jerome Tao and Abbi Silver plan to also answer questions from the audience the Thomas and Mack Moot Court Facility after arguments are concluded.

The three-member court is scheduled to hear a casino worker unemployment benefits case at 10 a.m., and then a Las Vegas Paving Corp. appeal of a case involving a bicyclist hurt in a crash with a tractor-trailer.

Court spokesman Michael Sommermeyer says it's the first time the appeals court will convene at the Boyd School.

The court convened in October at the National Judicial College in Reno.
