Fort Wayne is first for 'Courts in Classroom' re-enactment

January 1, 2007
The Indiana Supreme Court will take its educational Courts in the Classroom program on the road for the first time this fall as it celebrates its six-year anniversary.

A re-enactment of a historic U.S. Supreme Court case arising out the Fort Wayne area will be the first on the road event Oct. 17 and 18 at the Lincoln Museum. That case, Ex parte Milligan, 71 U.S. 2 (1866), involved civilians and military tribunals, and the lead defendant, Lambdin Milligan, was from that area.

Students, judges, and attorneys are needed to volunteer for roles in the re-enactment, especially to help portray this case's relevance in modern society. Those interested in participating or learning more about the Courts in the Classroom programs can contact Elizabeth R. Osborn, assistant to Indiana Chief Justice Randall T. Shepard, at (317) 233-8682 or at eosborn@courts.in.us.
