  1. A.    Court Visit

 

Attend a morning or afternoon court session/trial, or motion hearing, at the King County Superior Court or the Superior Court of another county in Washington.  Any other type of court (e.g., District or Municipal Court) will notsuffice.  What distinguishes a trial from a hearing or motion session is that the former have witnesses who testify and are subject to direct and cross examination, or the attorneys will be making opening statements or closing arguments; at a motion hearing the attorney(s) will be arguing a point(s) of law to the judge.  A COURT APPEARANCE WHERE A DEFENDANT MERELY PLEADS GUILTY OR NOT GUILTY TO A CHARGE IS NOT A TRIAL SESSION.  This is true even if the guilty pleas are followed by sentencing.  Nor will a family court proceeding suffice for this assignment, or a jury selection alone.

 

Morning sessions generally start around 9:00 a.m. and afternoon sessions usually start around 1:30 p.m.  It is up to each individual judge to determine when he or she wants to start their court sessions.  There are two King County Superior courthouses.  One is located on 516 3rd Avenue in Seattle and the second courthouse is located at 401 4thAvenue North in Kent.  For more information on the King County Superior Court, visit the home page at http://www.kingcounty.gov/courts.  You can obtain a copy of the Daily Calendar (or its equivalent) from the website the day after the hearing you attend; otherwise the Daily Calendar is generally not printed until 10 a.m. the day of any hearings. Thus, if you attend an afternoon session you will be able to get a copy of the Daily Calendar that afternoon; you can obtain it from the Court Clerk’s Office in the courthouse. If you attend a morning session you will not be able to get a copy until after 10 a.m.; you can obtain a copy of it from the Court Clerk’s Office in the courthouse.  Ask the Clerk or persons at the Information desk to guide you on which hearing would fit this assignment; they are very helpful.

 

You will have to go through a metal detector and security check much like that in airports before being allowed into the courthouse.  Plan accordingly, re metal objects, etc.

 

Please note that often the plaintiff/state and defendant will resolve the case on the day of the trial or the day before and the trial will be canceled.  If you are interested in seeing a particular case, I encourage you to call the Court Clerk in the morning to verify that the case you want to see will be in session that day.  There is always something to observe in the court and you should not fail to attend simply because a case you may have wanted to see will not be in session.
