U.S. District Judge Holds Motion Call at Cooley's Auburn Hills
On June 27th, United States District Judge David Lawson conducted
his motion call at Cooley Law School's Auburn Hills campus. The
program was sponsored by the Auburn Hills student chapter of
the Federal Bar Association. The judge heard three civil motions
including breach of contract, a motion to dismiss, and a request
for a declaratory judgment. The program, which began a couple
of years ago, is a continuing program where federal judges move
their court to Cooley's Auburn Hills campus to hear motions.
Previously, judges Bernard Friedman, Robert Cleland and Victoria
Roberts conducted their motion call at the Auburn Hills campus.
