Special Ninth Circuit Sitting at Hawaii Law School on October 18

By Robyn Hagan Cain on October 11, 2012 | Last updated on March 21, 2019

A trio of Ninth Circuit judges will head to Hawaii next week, but this trip is unlikely to incur the public’s ire.

Next week, Judges Stephen Reinhardt, Sidney Thomas, and Richard Paez will hear oral arguments at two sites in Honolulu: the court’s regular home at 1132 Bishop Street, and the University of Hawaii at Manoa’s William S. Richardson School of Law.

The court is scheduled to sit October 15-17 at its regular venue. Oral arguments will begin at 9 a.m. in Courtroom Suite 250L. The special sitting at the University of Hawaii at Manoa's law school will begin at 9:30 a.m. on October 18 in the law school's Moot Courtroom, located at 2515 Dole Street.

The panel will hear four appeals from the U.S. district courts for Hawaii and Guam at the law school. The cases are:

  • Hernandez v. Holder. Reviewing a BIA finding that the appellant's conviction for burglary constituted an aggravated felony, and that the appellant was not entitled to derivative citizenship through his mother.
  • Huynh v. Holder. Examining a lawful permanent resident's removal order following the resident's conviction for attempted first degree burglary.
  • Chen v. Holder. Considering an asylum application based on China's one-child policy.
  • United States v. Paulino. Reviewing a conviction and sentence for attempted possession of methamphetamine hydrochloride with intent to distribute.

The panel will answer questions at the law school in a Q&A session after oral arguments. Question time runs from 12:15 to 12:30.

The Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals holds hearings in Hawaii three times each year. A photo ID may be required for access into courtroom for oral arguments.
