Ugh. Thanks for making the rest of us look bad.
I wonder what issues they are arguing. I think it is fairly commonplace in designing moot court competitions to try to find cases that are unsettled and that may make their way to the supreme court.
Reminds me (in a different way) of how local Chapel Hill Ben Folds Five upheld their agreement to play for free on the last day of classes when I was at Duke University, even though they had gotten nationally famous in the meantime between agreeing and playing.
"Something suddenly came up" was the theme of a Brady Bunch episode eons ago. Greg gave Marsha that line to get out of an undesireable date. Whew! Good thing Roberts isn't the cad that Greg Brady was!confirmation word: 'fgcue'That's periliously close to something bad.
When I was in college, a new "General Science" (he was a Geology PhD) teacher took off for the entirety of dead week. Rather surprising - we finally got the story out of him the next year. To white water raft the Grand Canyon there is a 10 year or so waiting list. When he'd signed up on it, he was at a school that was on the semester system - and would have been safely into summer vacation by our (quarter system) dead week. Nobody was going to hold that one against him...
Jeff: I'd never heard the term "dead week" before.
I'm a law student at Wake Forest. The case he will be hearing is about a boy who wore a T-Shirt to school that was in very poor taste, and as a result was suspended. The substantive issue of the case is "Did the school unconstitutionally deprive the plaintiff of his right to freedom of speech?"
Ruth Anne! You do my heart good.Perhaps Roberts understands the Brady Law of Karma. Remember, the "desirable" boy (Doug Simpson?) wound up using that line on Marcia later, after her nose exploded.
wildaboutharrie: every time I see your commenter name, I think "and Harry's wild about me.." Does Brady karma involves Joe Namath hitting Marsha in the nose with a football and Davy Jones taking her to the dance? They're all melding together in my old age.N8: Can you score me some tickets? I'm right in town.
Sorry, I'm late to the party on this one."Jeff: I'd never heard the term "dead week" before."Really? Is that because UW doesn't have one, or is it called something like "pre-final" week? (I know that there are many places that don't have a "dead week" per se, but rather a couple of "dead days.") The whole week before final exams at some schools is dedicated strictly to review, and no new material is allowed to be introduced. At my alma mater, we took advantage of the full week to schedule all the various performance exams for the 1600+ music majors that we had, leaving finals week strictly for academic studies. It worked rather well, in my estimation.
