Two fascinating issues will be addressed Thursday, November 6, when the Arizona Supreme Court holds oral arguments during a visit to Tucson. The arguments will occur at the UA James E. Rogers College of Law (1201 E. Speedway Blvd., Ares Auditorium, Room 164), from 2:00 to 4:00 pm.
The Court will hear appellate arguments in two cases (I have stated below the issue for each; for a fuller treatment, click on the cases):
Issue: Do individual legislators have standing to challenge a law simply by alleging that a supermajority was required for its passage?
Issue: Is a criminal defendant precluded from raising an ineffective assistance of counsel claim in a successive post-conviction relief proceeding when, without fault of his own, his prior two court-appointed attorneys failed to file a petition in the two prior post-conviction relief proceedings?
As the law school reports:
“This judicial visit is hosted by the William H. Rehnquist Center for the Constitutional Structures of Government at the James E. Rogers College of Law.”
“Seating is limited and available to those who have preregistered here.
“Others are welcome on a first-come, first-serve basis as remaining space allows.”Follow @azatty
