Stuyvesant High School wins finals in MENTOR Moot Court in argument before US Court of Appeals bench
December 7, 2006__ Student attorneys from Stuyvesant and Herbert H. Lehman High Schools argued today before a panel of three judges of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit in the finals of the 2006 MENTOR Moot Court. The court ruled for Stuyvesant, who appeared on behalf of the Petitioner in the case argued over recent weeks by students from 54 New York City public high schools, each coached by a law firm or legal office in the city. Cravath, Swaine & Moore, is Stuyvesant's MENTOR firm.

The hypothetical case, involving constitutional issues related to social networking websites such as MySpace.com, Friendster.com, Facebook.com, Xanga.com, and LiveJournal.com was written by the Moot Court Board of Fordham Law School. The US Court of Appeals judges who heard the case yesterday and rendered the decision were Hon. Robert D. Sack, Hon. Denny Chin, and Hon. Gabriel W. Gorenstein.
