Lord Capulet vs. Friar Laurence in Village fifth grade mock trial

Fifth grade students in Linda St. George's REACH (gifted and talented) class at Village Elementary School recently held a mock trial with the help of senior Alyssa Reese, who is a member of the Hilton High School Mock Trial Team. She has been volunteering her time to help prepare the students for the trial of Lord Capulet vs. Friar Laurence. Lord Capulet is suing Friar Laurence for the wrongful death of his daughter, and is asking that an injunction be placed against him, preventing him from ever dispensing medicinal herbs and performing marriage ceremonies.
