Old Forge’s Mock Trial team competed recently in two trials. Gabby Margheriti won the award for best lawyer for plaintiff, and Mollie Boyd won best lawyer for defense. Katelyn Yurcavage won best witness at both trials.
In preparation for the competition, students analyzed more than 70 pages of legal documents including depositions and exhibits. Lawyers prepared direct and cross examinations and wrote opening and closing statements. Mock Trial team members competed at the Nealon Federal Courthouse in Scranton.
