Irvine 11 students appeal conviction
by Nicole Santa Cruz
Ten Muslim students convicted of disrupting a speech by the Israeli ambassador at UC Irvine last year filed appeals Wednesday, arguing that the law used to convict them was vague and unconstitutional.
The students, three from UC Riverside and seven from UCI, were convicted last month of willfully disrupting a meeting.
In February 2010, the students shouted preplanned phrases to disrupt a speech on U.S.-Israeli relations on campus by Israeli Ambassador Michael Oren.
