Santa Claus Sixth Circuit is coming to town

I am excited to report that I will just need to walk down a hallway to see a death penalty appeal first-hand tomorrow. This OSU press release provides the highlights:

A panel of judges from the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit will be holding an official session of the Court on Tuesday, April 3 at the Moritz College of Law. Judges Boyce Martin, R. Guy Cole and Jeff Sutton '90 will hear a complicated federal habeas case in which an Ohio death row prisoner has brought a series of constitutional challenges to the Ohio state court proceedings that resulted in his conviction and death sentence for a murder committed in Summit County, Ohio in the mid-1990s.

Over at Concurring Opinions, Alice Ristoph reports here on what he students recently learned from hearing oral arguments, I am expect I will be one of many learning tomorrow.

Of course, if the Canadian Supreme Court came to town it really would be like receiving a vist from Saint Nick. What ridiculous outfits - no gold stripes or anything!
