U.S. v. Lopez (9th Cir. - Nov. 30, 2006)

I liked the composition of this one. Which affirms a decision of a USD Law School graduate (Judge Napoleon Jones) in a case argued by a USD Law School graduate AUSA (Timothy Salel) and a USD Law School graduate federal defender (Chase Scolnick). So USD Law School all around.

Not on the panel, though. Which consisted of graduates from Yale (Judge Graber), UCLA (Judge Wardlaw), and McGeorge (Judge Rawlinson). And was, parenthetically, an all-woman panel. Which isn't something you see every day.
