More than 400 students from Kaimuki Christian School, Kaimuki High School, Damien Memorial School, Kalani High School, Mid Pacific Institute, University Laboratory School, McKinley High School, Henry J. Kaiser High School, Saint Louis School, Honolulu Waldorf School, and Sacred Hearts Academy will hear oral argument in the case of State of Hawaii v. James Weldon.

Media desiring to film or photograph the argument should file an Application for Extended Coverage with the Chief Clerks Office. Only one media outlet need apply. The requirement that media pool coverage from one video camera or one still camera will be waived for this case.

Please note that photographing and filming the faces of the students in the audience will not be allowed. Oral argument will be followed by two separate question-and-answer sessions for students only: one with the attorneys and the other with the five justices. The question-and-answer session will not be open to the media or the public, for the privacy of the students.

The Chief Justice and a few students will be available for on-camera interviews after the oral argument.
