Stetson wins Zehmer Workers' Comp Moot Court Competition.
Two teams of Stetson students advanced to compete against each other in the final round, beating a dozen teams from other law schools around the country. This is the second consecutive year that Stetson has won the competition, sponsored by the Workers' Compensation Section of The Florida Bar.
The winning Stetson team of Derrick Connell, Amie Patty, and brief writer Pamela Vergara narrowly defeated the Stetson team of Joseph Herbert, Brice Zoecklein, and brief writer Kristen Chittenden, who came in second place. Fourteen teams competed.
"The teams argued brilliantly in the final round before three judges from the Florida First District Court of Appeal," said Professor Stephanie Vaughan, moot court advisor. "We could never ask for more in a competition."
Stetson Professor Michael Allen coached the first-place team of Connell, Patty, and Vergara, and moot court alumni Jennifer Card Kennedy and Nancy Slack Meyer of Abbey Adams in St. Petersburg coached the second-place team of Herbert, Zoecklein, and Chittenden.
