Lawyers at 'town hall': UC Muslims will appeal
by Michael Mello
The UC Muslim students found guilty Friday gathered at a "town hall" meeting along with their supporters at a local mosque on Sunday to talk about the verdicts against the 10 students, while their attorneys promised to send the case to the highest courts, if necessary.
"We're going to stand up and fight this," attorney Jacqueline Goodman said, "even if it means going to the Supreme Court."
A jury on Friday found 10 Muslim university students guilty of disrupting a speech by Michael Oren, the Israeli ambassador to the United States, at UC Irvine last year, in a case that focused on free speech.
