W&L Law School's Legal Clinic wins an appeal before the 4th Circuit

The law school at W&L has this press release about the successful representation by a third-year student of an appellee in a black lung case before the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit.

Some years ago, on a day when I was before the Fourth Circuit, Judge Murnaghan chaired the panel, and a student from U.Va. or Georgetown argued a case, and before argument began, the judge held forth at some length on how great the program was, and its sponsor, and its law school. Then, after that tremendous greeting, in the argument, Judge Murnaghan was all over the guy, so I guess he got the full experience.
