The Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals has granted oral argument in my civil suit against the Border Patrol. While I requested oral argument, the government did not, stating:
Pursuant to Fifth Circuit Rule 28.2.3, appellees do not request oral argument. Disposition of this case involves the application of undisputed facts to settled law. The government, however, is prepared to present argument if the Court determines it would be of assistance.This is a good development, and I am looking forward to arguing on behalf of our Constitution before the judges in the months to come, and to hopefully helping reinforce our rights on highways far from any border. "...to support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic..." The pleadings before the Fifth Circuit can be read here.
