The Rhode Island Supreme Court “rides the circuit” twice a year, hearing cases in various venues throughout the state. The tradition of riding the circuit “dates to colonial times when the courts and other bodies of government traveled from town to town, taking the people’s business directly to the people.” See Office of Community Outreach and Public Relations. For example, when he was a practicing lawyer, Abraham Lincoln traveled the circuit in the Eighth Judicial Circuit of Illinois. See John J. Duff, A. Lincoln: Prairie Lawyer 168 (1960). This term, the Rhode Island Court sat at Exeter-West Greenwich Regional High School. See Cruz v. DaimlerChrysler Motors Corp., No. 2012-56-Appeal at 1.
