Kids' Court - About / History

Kids' Court Collage

Judge Berry created the Kids' Court/Ask an Inmate program in 1994 as a special field trip for fifth grade elementary school students. In the years that have followed, students from all over the Truckee Meadows have visited Judge Berry's courtroom to participate in a mock trial, entitled B.B.Wolf v. Curley Pig. Kids Court is a scripted mock trial held in the courtroom.

Students, parents, and teachers consistently report that Kids' Court/Ask an Inmate is one of their favorite and most valuable learning experiences. Since its inception in 1994, more than 150 (approximately 5,000 students and parents) elementary school classes have attended this program.
