Supreme Court Justice Samuel A. Alito, Jr. ’75 and Circuit Judges Rosemary Barkett (11th Cir.) and Rosemary S. Pooler (2d Cir.) will hear Rahmani v. United States, which addresses whether the government may, consistent with the First Amendment, prosecute persons for supporting groups it has determined to be terrorist organizations without allowing them to dispute those determinations.
Anna Manasco Dionne ’08 and Krishanti Vignarajah ’08 will be arguing for the petitioner. The respondent will be represented by Bryan Caforio ’08 and Jon Donenberg ’08.
“It should be a terrific round, and the legal issues are of great importance given the current state of international affairs,” said Yale Law School Dean Harold Hongju Koh.
