On Halloween 2018, Cape Central High School had the privilege of watching  Appeals Court in action at Kinder Hall. The Appeals Court judges listened to two cases, one regarding Eminent Domain and another dealing with a property dispute.

Eminent Domain is when the US Government takes someone else’s property with the promise of compensation. However, in this particular case, the defendant was arguing for more money from The City of Cape Girardeau because of Heritage Value. Heritage Value can be added to the price of a property if the property is more than 50 years old. The second case was regarding a property dispute, where water had damaged an apartment. The Appeals Court judges allowed AP Government and Government students to ask questions after the cases were complete.
