    3 law students appointed to campus court

    Three law students were appointed justices of the Associated Students of the University of Arizona Supreme Court during the ASUA Senate meeting last night.

    Adam Martin, a second-year law student, was promoted from his position as associate justice to chief justice of court, replacing Chief Justice Jennifer Baker, whose term ended in May.

    Martin will serve over four justices including two appointed last night: Amanda Grainger, a second-year law student, and Eliot Held, a first-year law student.

    A total of five students sit on the ASUA Supreme Court.

    Held said that he is excited at the opportunity to be involved in the university judicial process.

    “”It will be good mental training,”” Held said.

    The ASUA Supreme Court “”has jurisdiction over all appropriate matters concerning, but not limited to, campus organizations, election disputes and ASUA governmental affairs,”” according to the ASUA Web site.

    The interview process ended last week.

    ASUA President Erin Hertzog said she is happy with the selections that were made.

    The last time the ASUA Supreme Court convened was spring semester, when campaign violation allegations were brought against an ASUA senator. The ASUA Supreme Court also met in 2004 to settle a dispute regarding the ASUA presidential elections.

    In other business, ASUA approved the Zona Zoo appointments of Rachel Witkowski to the position of small sports chair and David Meyerson to the position of basketball chair.
