The 9th Circuit held oral arguments this past week in Pasadena.
Non-SoCal 9th Circuit judges visiting the Southland were Fletcher, Rawlinson, O'Scannlain, and Hawkins, joining SoCal regulars Reinhardt, Wardlaw, Chief Kozinski, M.Smith, McKeown, Goodwin, and Paez.
Three federal district court judges sat by designation:
The Hon. Robert Holmes (W.D. Mich.), Alvin Hellerstein (S.D.N.Y.), and Edward Korman (E.D.N.Y.).
On behalf of the Southern California appellate community, we thank Judges Holmes, Hellerstein and Korman for helping out the 9th and hope they enjoyed their visit. January in Pasadena is probably a bit warmer than in their home jurisdictions...
