The Tennessee Supreme Court will hear oral arguments next week in the Supreme Court Chambers of the Tennessee State Capitol, the Administrative Office of the Courts reports. The court regularly hears cases in the Supreme Court buildings in Jackson, Knoxville and Nashville, but an invitation from Gov. Bill Haslam will bring it back to the place where it heard oral arguments in the late 1800s and early 1900s. Haslam is scheduled to welcome the court to the chambers after the session opens at 8:55 a.m. on Thursday. The court has six cases on the docket for oral arguments that day. All five state Supreme Court justices -- Chief Justice Gary R. Wade, Cornelia A. Clark, Janice M. Holder, William C. Koch Jr. and Sharon G. Lee -- will sit on the panel.
