Former Supreme Court Justice White to judge moot court competition

Former Supreme Court Justice Byron A. White will be among the judges presiding over the final round of the Kirkwood Moot Court Competition at Stanford University Law School on Friday, May 2. The competition, which will take place in Kresge Auditorium from 4 to 5:30 p.m., is free and open to the public.

The hypothetical case to be argued ­ Bain v. Moore ­ will involve student-to-student sexual harassment and its implications under Title IX and the Violence Against Women Act. Third-year students Leslie Hatamiya and Laura Bradford will argue for the petitioner and Fred Karem and Matthew Shors, both second-year students, will argue for the respondent. Also presiding will be Judge Edward Leavy, U.S. Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit, and Justice James Ware, U.S. District Court, Northern District of California.
