U.S. Supreme Court Chief Justice visits Jackson

It’s Mississippi’s bicentennial year, and U.S. Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts was in the Magnolia State to mark the state’s birthday and the judicial and legal profession.

“I am extremely proud and privileged to be able to sit with these formidable judges,” said Chief Justice John Robert. “The performance from the bench I will say is pretty good. I won’t ask for applause.”

Showing off his humorous side, Chief Justice Roberts presided over a moot court competition in the Capital City. It was between the University of Mississippi and Mississippi College law students. He not only asked the tough questions but also gave words of wisdom to these aspiring lawyers and judges.
