See Supreme Court of Appeals of West Virginia Webcast
Rush is appealing his convictions on two counts of manslaughter, one count of first degree robbery, one count of burglary, and one count of conspiracy to commit burglary.
He is challenging the circuit court's denial of his motions for a mistrial following problems that surfaced with State Police behavior during a re-trial that was conducted in Jackson County.
Rush is seeking a reversal of his convictions or, in the alternative, a remand for a new trial.
The justices will be at Huntington's Joan C. Edwards Performing Arts Center.
Chief Justice Brent Benjamin will moderate a panel discussion, "Blogging and the Potential Limits of the First Amendment," at 2 p.m.
