On 9 February, CAAF will hear oral argument in United States v. Diaz, No. 09-0535/NA, at Pepperdine University School of Law in Malibu, California. NACDL moved to file an amicus brief and to participate in oral argument. On Thursday, CAAF granted NACDL’s motion to file an amicus brief but denied NACDL’s motion to participate in the oral argument. It will be interesting to see whether any Pepperdine students participate in the argument as amicus counsel.
