Kelleher and Weathersby argue before the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit

Wednesday, August 15, 2018

As part of the law school’s Appellate Litigation Clinic, third-year students Christopher “Chris” Kelleher and Alexander “Alex” Weathersby recently presented oral arguments on the same day in two separate cases before the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit. Kelleher represented the clinic’s client in Petersen v. Blanton, et al., a Section 1983 case against five correctional officers who broke the client's arm and left him in solitary confinement for two weeks with no medical care. Weathersby argued in the case Jones v. Secretary, Florida Department of Corrections, which is a habeas case that asked whether the clinic’s client "properly filed" his state post-conviction motion for purposes of tolling the deadline on his federal habeas petition. Class of 2018 graduates Jared B. Magnuson and Wheaton Webb wrote the briefs in both cases.
