Federal appeals court judges come to Honolulu

HONOLULU (AP) - The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals will hear oral arguments in Honolulu this week.

A three-judge panel of the court plans to hear three appeals of decisions by immigration authorities and by the U.S. District Court for Hawaii.

The court is scheduled to hear oral arguments in downtown Honolulu on Tuesday and Wednesday. On Thursday, judges will listen to arguments at the law school of the University of Hawaii at Manoa.

The judges will also meet informally with William S. Richardson School of Law faculty and students.

Justices from the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals meet in Honolulu three times a year.
