 (Cleveland) – Chalk one up for the “A” Team, and while you’re at it, Team B and Team C.

For the first time in the 18 year history of the program, a Cleveland high school won first, second and third place in the annual Cleveland Mock Trial Competition, presented by the Cleveland Municipal Court, the Cleveland Metropolitan Bar Association and the Cleveland Metropolitan School District.

“I've gotten reports that say this year had the best talent ever!  It was very competitive,” remarked Judge Lauren C. Moore who oversees the program and wrote the case, which involved a hazing incident that turned tragic.  See case here: 18th Annual Cleveland Municipal Court Mock Trial Competition - City of Cleveland v.
