Court of appeals session at law school

The U.S. Court of Appeals for the 8th Circuit will hold a special session from 9-11 a.m. Feb. 14 in the School of Law’s Bryan Cave Moot Courtroom in Anheuser-Busch Hall.

The public is invited to hear the denaturalization appeal of a former Nazi concentration camp guard, a prison inmate’s civil rights action against Missouri corrections officials, and a psychologist’s First Amendment claim alleging wrongful termination for criticizing his employer.

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

Hearing oral arguments will be judges William Jay Riley, Michael J. Melloy and Duane Benton.

A question-and-answer period on procedural issues and judicial clerkships will follow the session.

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 library under “Eighth Circuit Special Session.”
