The Hudson Valley Consortium 2022 Rensselaer County Mock Trial Champions!
For the 2022 Tournament, Rensselaer County had six area high schools competing: Catholic Central High School, Columbia High School, The Doane Stuart School, Emma Willard School, Hudson Valley Consortium, and La Salle Institute.
The case was entitled: People of the State of New York v Shawn Miller. The Attorney General’s Office indicted the Defendant under the Martin-Webb Act on charges of securities fraud.
We would like to express our gratitude to the following Judges and attorneys who served as judges for the tournament: Rensselaer County Family Court Judge Elizabeth Walsh; Rensselaer City Court Judge Linda Johnson; Troy City Court Judge Anne Coonradt; Lavoda Collins; Arthur Frost; Jessica Hall, Cheryl McDermott; Keith Muse, and Dana Salazar.
A special thanks to the Honorable Linda Johnson for judging the final held on April 6, 2022, between the Emma Willard School and Hudson Valley Homeschool. The Hudson Valley Homeschool were our County Champion and advanced to the Regional Tournament held in Saratoga County where they lost in the final round.
This years tournament was again held virtually and look forward to being back in person at the courthouse next year.
