Info about the Eighth Judicial District Court.

Second graders from Merryhill Elementary School approached the case of State of Nevada vs. Goldilocks as if they were seasoned justice professionals. The mini attorneys litigated the case in which the golden girl was charged with robbery, theft and trespassing before a panel of three judges, including real District Court Judge Linda Marquis. Judge Marquis sponsored the mock trial for the young legal eagles to give them a hands-on lesson on the justice system. The students clearly got the message and nailed the verdict. They found the blonde defendant guilty of trespassing and theft, but not guilty of robbery. After their efforts, the second graders, who played roles ranging from judge and attorney to journalist and jurors, were rewarded with a treat and a certificate. The attorney fees were a lot cheaper than the real lawyers they played. Give them a few years.
