Today, we are beginning a mock trial activity. You will
have today to prepare your statements, questioning, and positions.

In a civil court, a suit is brought by one individual (plaintiff) against another (defendant), whereas in criminal court, the case is between the state (prosecution) and the defendant.

In this civil court the creature (plaintiff) is presenting a case against Victor Frankenstein (defendant) on the basis of negligence, malpractice, emotional and physical distress. Your statements must be written down and ready to present tomorrow.
-Today, you will confer with the other person(s) acting your role and devise a civil suit in which to engage tomorrow.

-PLEASE DRESS ACCORDING TO YOUR ROLE TOMORROW--we need to be able to identify you!
