Special Session of the 10th Circuit Court of Appeals
The 10th Circuit Court of Appeals will sit in a special session at 2 p.m. today at White Concert Hall. The session will last approximately one hour and will feature speakers and the formal investiture of Washburn’s own Nancy Moritz, BBA ’82, JD ’85, as a justice of the court.

During the session, Moritz’s daughters, one of whom is a Washburn education major, will assist with her official robing.

Moritz previously served on the Kansas Supreme Court. She is the second Ichabod to be named to the 10th Circuit Court. The first was Delmas Hill, who earned a law degree in 1929 and was appointed to the court in 1961. The 10th Circuit is based in Denver and covers Colorado, Kansas, New Mexico, Oklahoma, Utah and Wyoming. Congratulations, Justice Mortiz!

Because of this amazing opportunity, parking lots 10 and 11 near White Concert Hall will be closed on Friday. Please plan accordingly.
