DANBURY, Conn. (AP) _ The Connecticut Supreme Court is hitting the road to hear two cases.

All seven justices will be at Western Connecticut State University in Danbury on Wednesday as part of the court’s “On Circuit” program. Justices hear cases outside of Hartford about once a year to educate people about the court.

The first case, Virginia Stewart versus the town of Waterford, centers on whether Watertown’s former town clerk should have been paid her salary from 2006 to 2010, despite failing to report to work because she claimed the air in town hall was unhealthy.

Justices will also hear State versus Alia Altajir, who was the driver in a fatal accident. Altajir is questioning a lower court’s decision to allow photographs she posted on Facebook into evidence in a probation violation case.
