Court of appeals session at law school Feb. 11

The U.S. Court of Appeals for the 8th Circuit will hold a special session from 9-11:30 a.m. Feb. 11 in the School of Law’s Bryan Cave Moot Courtroom in Anheuser-Busch Hall.

The public is invited to hear cases on whether a religious organization has the right to videotape the execution of a Missouri inmate, a family’s request for political asylum and the redemption value of company stock.

The court periodically holds sessions in law schools as part of an educational program.

Hearing oral arguments will be Chief Judge James B. Loken and judges Roger L. Wollman and Pasco M. Bowman.

After the session, the judges will answer general procedural questions from the audience.

To limit the amount of disturbances to the proceedings, visitors will be asked to enter and exit the courtroom only during breaks between each attorney’s oral argument.

Case briefs for the oral argument session will be on temporary reserve in the law school’s library under “Eighth Circuit Special Session.”
