Marion Rice Kirkwood Moot Court Competition Finals
Friday, February 5, 4:00 pm
The Marion Rice Kirkwood Moot Court Competition Finals will be held over Zoom on Friday, February 5 at 4:00 p.m. The finalists are:
Katherine Giordano / Bonnie Henry, for Petitioner
Rhiannon Bronstein / Andrew Toney-Noland, for Respondent
The finalists will argue before a distinguished panel of judges: Justice Mariano-Florentino Cuéllar of the California Supreme Court, and Judge Michelle Friedland and Judge Daniel Bress of the Ninth Circuit.
The problem this year is based on an actual case, County of Lackawanna Transit System v. Northeastern Pennsylvania Freethought Society, 938 F.3d 424 (3rd Cir. 2019). The issue is whether a government transit system violates the First Amendment by refusing to accept advertisements that contain religious speech.
We hope you will be able to join us!
