Block on Trump's Asylum Ban Upheld by Supreme Court
The Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals Traveling Roadshow is coming to a location near you. If you’re located in Richmond or West Virginia, that is.
If you’ve looked at the Fourth Circuit’s oral arguments schedule for the 2012-2013 term, you may have noticed a trend: Almost all of the hearings are at the circuit’s Richmond, Va. home.
The lone outlier? An October 4 hearing at the West Virginia University College of Law.
Is it a little early to begin planning for an October hearing? Absolutely not. Unlike the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals -- which rarely says no to a field trip -- the Fourth Circuit seldom takes its act on tour. Since this is the only scheduled date for the fall, we recommend popping by if you're in the neighborhood.
The Fourth Circuit will hear the following cases at WVU:
Appellate briefs for the cases are available here.
Oral arguments will commence at 9:00 a.m. EST on Thursday, October 4 in the Marlyn E. Lugar Courtroom at the WVU College of Law. Directions to the law center are available here.
