An Afternoon with The Utah Court of Appeals at the S. J. Quinney College of Law

The court will hear oral argument in the case of State v. Sanchez.  Although the case arises in the context of a criminal case, a primary issue on appeal involves the Utah Rules of Evidence and the question expressly left open in State v. Jones, 2015 UT 19, 345 P.3d 1195, namely, whether rule 106, dealing with the introduction of “all or part of a writing or recorded statement,” can “overcome rule 802’s prohibition against hearsay.” Arguing for appellant is Teresa Welch, Salt Lake Legal Defender Association. Arguing for appellee is Karen Klucznik, Criminal Appeals Division, Utah Attorney General’s Office.
The arguments are free and open to the public, but this unique CLE opportunity allows participants to attend an introduction to the case before the arguments, a panel discussion featuring prominent appellate practitioners following the argument, and a social for all participants.
The CLE panel will be moderated by Judge Gregory K. Orme of the Utah Court of Appeals. The CLE panelists are Judge Carolyn B. McHugh, United States Court of Appeals, Tenth Circuit; Paul C. Burke, Ray Quinney & Nebeker; and Rodney R. Parker, Snow Christensen & Martineau.
