We are so excited!!!

The 2017 Rebel-Trojan All-In Mock Trial Tournament is the sixth year of the first ever American Mock Trial Association format trial advocacy competition to come to Las Vegas.

As is only proper, the tournament will take place at the UNLV William S. Boyd School of Law and the Greenspun College of Urban Affairs. The UNLV and USC Mock Trial Teams co-host the tournament.

The Competition Case

THIS YEAR, the students will present either the Plaintiff or Defense side in the civil case of Riley Winter v. TBD, Inc. Here's a summary:

Riley Winter accumulated accolade after accolade during a 27 year career with publisher TBD, Inc. At about the same time Winter was terminated, TBD hired Landon Greene. Greene was half Winter's age, the only demographic difference between them.

During Winter's time with TBD, the publication went from a printed weekly, to printed plus online, to online only. Winter sought out and completed social media training after receiving directives to write for millenials. One of the articles Winter wrote about one of TBD's advertisers, an online music service, resulted in threats to cancel their ad buys. Thereafter, Winter was fired -- as were all the older writers at TBD.

Winter has now sued for wrongful termination in violation of the State of Midlands' Age Discrimination Act.
