Sigalos represents client virtually before the U.S. Court of Appeals

Wednesday, September 2, 2020

Third-year student Jason N. Sigalos argued before the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit representing the Appellate Litigation Clinic's client in the case Arellano Herrera v. Barr. The client is seeking deferral of removal under the Convention Against Torture with the main issues being whether she can relocate and whether a government official would acquiesce to her torture. Sigalos co-wrote the briefs with third-year student Mollie M. Fiero and 2020 graduate John Lex Kenerly IV. Notably, this is the first virtual oral argument for the clinic and its students.
