As the U.S. Supreme Court hears oral arguments for the fall term of 2019, CU Boulder legal experts are available for media interviews. We plan to update this page throughout the term.

Kansas v. Garcia: 

Ming Hsu Chen, faculty director of Colorado Law’s Immigration and Citizenship Law Program, can highlight the realities of living life in the U.S. without legal documents that lead people to seek false work documents.

Violeta Chapin, associate clinical professor of law, can explain how the case falls between two competing Trump administration objectives: tracking down immigrants in the country illegally and protecting businesses against regulation.

The case, which could determine whether using a false Social Security number is prosecutable, had oral arguments Oct. 16, 2019.

Kahler v. Kansas: 

Aya Gruber, professor of criminal law, can speak about the case, which could determine whether states can abolish an insanity defense. Gruber previously served as a felony trial attorney.

Arguments took place on Oct. 7, 2019.

R.G. & G.R. Harris Funeral Homes Inc. v. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission: 

Craig Konnoth, associate professor of law, contributed to an amicus brief in the case. The brief argues Aimee Stephens was improperly fired for not conforming to gender stereotypes.

The case, which deals with discrimination against transgender people, had oral arguments Oct. 8, 2019.
