9th Circuit Court of Appeals to hold oral arguments at William H. Gates Hall tomorrow

On Wednesday, April 6, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit will be at the UW School of Law to hear oral arguments in four cases. The cases involve a warrantless search, a challenge to the U.S. military’s “stop loss” policy of involuntarily extending a service member’s enlistment contract, a challenge to Washington state’s alleged underfunding of a state entitlement program, as well as a challenge to the U.S. Department of Defense ban on insurance coverage for medically necessary abortions for service members and their families.

The arguments will begin promptly at 9 am and end around 11:30 am. The location is room 133, but overflow seating is available in room 138. No large bags will be allowed in room 133. This is a bona fide court session and proper courtroom protocol should be observed.
