JET Middle School Advances to S.C. Bar Middle School Mock Trial State Competition

web posted November 14, 2012

JOHNSTON – Johnston Edgefield Trenton (JET) Middle School has advanced to the S.C. Bar Middle School Mock Trial State Competition Dec. 7-8 at the Marc H. Westbrook Lexington County Judicial Center located at 205 E. Main St. in Lexington.

Participating students include Alasia Bell, Olivia Bedenbaugh, Madison Brawley, Makenzie Boen, Tymara Chick, Frederick Culbreath, Garrett English, Rachel Fonville, Traterrious Holmes, Astra Lee, ShaToya Moore, Jeniyha Padgett, Meg Prince, Gage Taylor Quarles, Rachel Simpkins, Michael Taylor and Bonnie Watson. The teacher coaches are Joseph Friar and Laurie Prince.

Students will present the plaintiff and defendant sides of a fictitious case before a panel of local volunteer lawyers and judges. Additionally, students will fill the roles of defendant, witnesses, bailiffs and timekeepers. Each team will be judged on its presentation skills, rather than the legal merits of the case.

This year’s fictitious case is Jess McGee v. Kasey Moore. McGee, the owner of a prized bull, is suing Moore for negligence after the bull escaped from his pasture and was killed in an accident.  Moore denies negligence, claiming the accident was unavoidable, and is suing McGee for the damage caused to her car. To read more information about the case or about the Middle School Mock Trial Program, visit www.scbar.org/lre.

The Mock Trial program is sponsored by the S.C. Bar’s Law Related Education (LRE) Division, which was developed in 1976 to improve the ability of teachers to instruct law related education.

The Mock Trial program is made possible through a S.C. Bar Foundation IOLTA grant and the S.C. Bar.

The South Carolina Bar, which has a membership of more than 14,000 lawyers, is dedicated to advancing justice, professionalism and understanding of the law.
