For the first time in a decade, the Arkansas Supreme Court held a session in El Dorado this morning in which the case of HPD, LLC. v. Tetra Technologies, Inc., was argued in front of an audience at the El Dorado Conference Center that included students from nearby schools.
A release from the Office of Courts explained, this will be the 15th occasion in the last 10 years that the Supreme Court has held court outside of Little Rock. Since 2002, the court has held oral arguments in Fayetteville (twice), Fort Smith, Jonesboro (twice), Monticello, Hope, Harrison, Bentonville, Helena, Hot Springs, Blytheville, Texarkana and Pine Bluff.
According to Dave Showers, the News-Times reporter who covered the session, each side had 20 minutes to argue before final deliberations were made.
Several cases were argued, however, prominent among them was the HPD, LLC. v. Tetra Technologies, Inc., matter, Showers said.
