Bishop argues before the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit

Monday, January 30, 2017

Third-year student Rachel M. Bishop recently presented oral argument before the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit as part of the law school’s Appellate Litigation Clinic. The clinic's client alleges that he was terminated by his trucking-company employer after filing a complaint with the EEOC, while the employer alleges the client was terminated because he failed to re-train after having a minor accident in a loading dock. Third-year students Allan T. "Trevor" Buhr and Christopher D. "Chris" Stokes assisted in writing briefs and in helping Bishop prepare by acting as opposing counsel during practice arguments.
