RUTLAND, Vt. (AP) - The 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals is going to hold its first hearing in Vermont.
On Oct. 5, a three-judge panel hears oral arguments in the newly renovated and restored Post Office and Court House in Rutland.
Chief Judge Dennis Jacobs, of the New York-based appeals court, said it would be the first time in the 123-year history of the appeals court that it will sit in Vermont.
The day before, the 2nd Circuit Committee on History, Commemorative Events and Civic Education will sponsor a lecture by University of Vermont Professor Frank Bryan, who will speak on "Why Political Systems Change: The Case of Vermont."
Following the lecture, there will be a reception on the lobby of Rutland's Paramount Theater.
