Rare Panel of Judges

Last night Richardson law students had an opportunity to argue in front of a rare panel of judges: Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals Judge Richard Clifton, Federal District Court Judge David Ezra, and Hawaii Supreme Court Chief Justice Mark Recktenwald. Before oral arguments began Judge Ezra announced to the moot court team and the audience that "This is the first time in the history of Hawaii that you have three of the highest ranking judges on the same panel: the Ninth Circuit, the federal district court, and the Hawaii Supreme Court Chief Justice."
