March 30, 2012 – On March 1, 2012, United States District Court Judge Mark Goldsmith conducted his motion call at Cooley Law School's Auburn Hills campus. This is a continuing program whereby federal judges move their court to Cooley's Auburn Hills campus to hear motions and is sponsored by the Criminal Law Society and the Auburn Hills Mock Trial Board.

The judge heard one motion involving a civil rights case brought by parents whose children were removed from their home by the Department of Human Services. The parties argued for summary judgment based upon such complicated issues as immunity, substantive and procedural Due Process, and collateral estoppel.
