Fortunately, this year went smoothly with no cancellations and/or rescheduling due to school closures.  I think that may be a first. 

For the first time in the past ten years, we had two new teams in the finals.  My father’s alma mater, BCC, battled my own alma mater, Churchill, to determine who would be this year’s winning team.  In a back and forth trial that was before the Honorable John C. Moffett, Churchill prevailed by three points.    

I want to also thank my colleague, Casey Cirner, for helping me obtain all the Courtrooms for all 50 plus trials, along with my assistant, Valerie Choinski, for sending out all the material to each of the judges, and my counterpart with the school system, Scott Zanni.  I would also like to thank the Sheriffs for opening the Courtrooms each night and Judge Greenberg, Judge Quirk, Judge Albright, Judge Storm, Judge Dugan and Judge Debelius for the use of their Courtrooms over the past three months. 

Finally, a big thank you to Judge Gelber, Judge Koch, Magistrate Wisor, Magistrate Segal, Magistrate Bonifant and Judge Moffett for judging and/or coaching in this year’s competition. 

This terrific program could not help without everyone’s involvement.  Thank you for a terrific year.
