During this annual event, students participating in the Cleveland-Marshall Moot Court Program will prepare for the national moot court competition by presenting their arguments before a panel of distinguished jurists. In addition, the participating jurists will provide a brief seminar on appellate advocacy. The Moot Court Board of Governors will also present its 7th Annual Alumni Recognition Award.

During this year’s Moot Court Night, students will argue a fictional case regarding the enactment of a city ordinance that requires employers to pay a minimum amount on healthcare expenditures for each hour an employee works. Under the ordinance, employers whose expenditures fall short of the required amount have to pay the difference to the city. A business association representing the city’s largest employers won a preliminary injunction to block the ordinance and the city is now seeking to reverse this ruling. The issues on appeal concern the appropriate standard to be applied by a court when deciding a motion for preliminary injunction and whether the ordinance is preempted by ERISA.
