The state's Supreme Court of Appeals was at West Virginia Wesleyan to hear four cases on Tuesday.

This was the first time in school history that the court heard cases at the college. They travel to different schools during the year to show students how the judicial system works.

The four hearings included a case between the Hinerman couple and former WVU football coach Rich Rodriguez and his wife, over the condition of a cheat lake home.
 
Other cases dealt with criminal acts and insurance benefits. The five justices heard each case, but will take a few weeks to make a decision. Some local judges even got the chance to be a part of the hearings Tuesday morning.
 
Circuit Court Judge Thomas Keadle took the place of another justice for one of the cases. Not only that, one of the justices also had some local ties.  Justice Robin Davis graduated from Wesleyan in 1978.
 
"What we want to accomplish is to show the entire state of West Virginia what we do as a judiciary, how important the decisions that we make are to the entire state," said Justice Robin Davis.
 
Students from Buckhannon-Upshur High School, Elkins High School, and WVWC were also able to watch the hearings.
 
"I thought it was really interesting. I liked how the lawyers were really prepared, but I didn't really understand why the actual people involved in the cases weren't there. I think it would have been better to have them there, but I thought it was pretty interesting," said Alesa Foster, a senior at Elkins High School.
 
The decisions on the four cases are expected some time before Thanksgiving.
