U law professors submit amicus curiae briefs in State of Washington v. Trump case

The S.J. Quinney College of Law has arranged to live stream the Ninth Circuit oral argument in State of Washington v. Trump into the  law school’s moot courtroom on Feb.7, beginning at 4 p.m. MST.

This is an unusual argument in that advocates will be participating via telephone, but at a minimum, audio will be available for the entire argument. Law students, members of the University of Utah community and public are invited to attend.  The moot courtroom is located on the sixth floor of the law school, 383 South University Street.

The law school has a unique tie to this case, as Professor Amy Wildermuth, with assistance from Professor Lincoln Davies, submitted amicus curiae briefs on the issue of the State of Washington’s standing to bring the case. 

The amicus briefs were submitted on behalf of a group of law professors. Besides Wildermuth and Davies,  Professors Alex Skibine and Robin Craig, also faculty at the S.J. Quinney College of Law, contributed to the briefs.

Professor Laura Kessler signed her name on a separate, but similar brief filed with the court.
