The California Court of Appeal, 2nd District - Division 4 will be holding a special session in Southwestern's Julian C. Dixon Courtroom and Advocacy Center on Thursday, February 8, 2007. The visit is designed to introduce first-year law students to the appellate court system. Case summaries prepared by the court are available in the Leigh H.

As part of this educational program, the justices will also attend a luncheon with students.

The case to be argued follows.

The issue is whether the trial court erred in granting summary judgment against appellant on her complaint for negligent entrustment of a vehicle where the parties dispute whether the driver was intoxicated.
