Students Visit the US Court of Appeals 9th Circuit
A group of College Prep students from history teacher Daniel Song's Constitutional Law Seminar attended an oral argument before the United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit in San Francisco. They attended three arguments before the court: an immigration case about deportation of an asylum seeker, a First Amendment case about a Olympic swimmer alleging defamation against a magazine that suggested she had taken performance enhancing drugs, and an administrative law case about whether PG&E may raise rates as part of a federal incentive program even though it already participates in the desired program under California state law. They also had an opportunity to meet presiding judges, Hon. Stephen S. Trott, and Hon. Stephen Reinhardt, who stayed after to answer questions from the students.
