New Hartrford Central Takes Mock Trial Competition!  Notre Dame Places Second.



Oneida County Hosts NYS Region II Mock Trial Tournament
     On Saturday April 10th the Oneida County Courthouse served as the spectacular host of the Annual NYS Region II Mock Trial Tournament!  Representative teams from seven counties took part in the day long tourney and Vestal High School from Broome County emerged as victors!  Best of luck at the State Tournament in Albany!

     The seven counties, their teams and advisors were:  Broome – Vestal High – Tom Walls, Chemung – Horseheads Central – Jamy Bryce Hyde, Chenango – Afton High – Eric Garlitz, Oneida – New Hartford Senior High – Peter Anderson, Onondaga – Manlius Pebble Hill School – Philip Rothschild, Oswego – G. Ray Bodley High – Saye Wood, and Tompkins – Lehman Alternative Community School – Karen Adams.
     Paula Eannace, Supreme Court Law Librarian, Erin Gall, Law Clerk to County Court Judge Donalty and Carol Furno, Court Assistant to Magistrate Christine Barry beautifully organized and presented a wonderful program from early in the morning until nearly six in the evening to the delight of all who attended and participated.  Many thanks also go out to Dunkin’ Donuts for its in-kind and discounted breakfast items, Tony’s Pizzeria, Hannaford Food Market and BJ’s Wholesale for providing “fuel” at reasonable cost for lunch and throughout the competition.
     Many, many thanks to our judges who worked tirelessly to provide a fair and enjoyable experience to the competitors – all of whom went away with favorable impressions of the judging, the courthouse and the day in Oneida County.  Thank you to Hon. Bernadette Clark, Peter Angelini, Honorable Ralph J. Eannace, Paula Eannace, Elizabeth Fortino, Philip Fortino, Larry Dillon, Ray Bara, Peter DiGiorgio, Maryangela Scalzo, Richard Pertz and Dan Cafruny – your efforts are greatly appreciated and your service to the high school attorneys, witnesses, advisors and parents is immeasurable.
     The 2010 Region II Mock Trial Tournament was a great success for our bar association and our county.
