PHOENIX (AP) -- The Arizona Supreme Court will be returning to its roots when the justices hear arguments in two pending cases.

The court on Tuesday is scheduled to hear arguments in its historic chambers in the state capitol building in Phoenix. The court used the chambers from 1938 to 1974.

The court currently hears most cases in a courts building completed in 1991, but the justices periodically hear cases at other locations as part of a public education effort.

One of the cases being argued Tuesday morning stems from a lawsuit filed by survivors of a woman killed in a 2007 accident on Interstate 10. The state is appealing rulings that held it liable for not installing a median barrier.

The other case involves a debt on a loan for a home.
