CHARLESTON, W.Va. — The Supreme Court of Appeals will hear arguments at Marshall University on Wednesday.

The court session, which is opened to the public, will take place at the Joan C. Edwards Performing Arts Center starting at 10 a.m.

“We are delighted to join the Marshall University community in celebrating Constitution Week by bringing our Court to Huntington. We look forward to speaking with the students and faculty about the importance of the work we do in the West Virginia judiciary,” Chief Justice Beth Walker said in a statement.

The justices will consider three cases:

— Division of Justice and Community Service et. al. v. Fairmont State University, which regards an April 2018 ruling from Marion County Circuit Court that reversed the institution’s application to provide law-enforcement training for students majoring in criminal justice.

— West Virginia Fraternal Order of Police and West Virginia Deputy Sheriff’s Association State of West Virginia v. Ryan Hubbs, which regards a Marion County Circuit Court order granting Ryan Ashley Hubb’s request to dismiss two indictments of first-degree murder. He previously pleaded guilty in Lewis County to second-degree robbery.

— Arthur Patton v. County of Berkeley, et al., which regards the Berkeley County Circuit Court’s denial of a motion to dismiss Patton’s lawsuit against the county over a June 2015 arrest.
