Law and Order Report



A Tucson wrongful death case is among several that judges from the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals will hear March 6 at the University of Arizona.

The case involves a woman who appealed a U.S. District Court summary judgment in favor of the federal government. Becky McCormick had filed a lawsuit alleging her mother died from multi-drug intoxication at Catalina Village Assisted Nursing.

Five other cases also will be heard by the three-judge panel of Marsha S. Berzon of San Francisco, Michael Daly Hawkins of Phoenix and Richard R. Clifton of Honolulu.

Oral arguments begin at 10 a.m. in the UA Law School’s Ares Auditorium, Room 146, 1201 E. Speedway Blvd.

Photo ID is required.

The 9th Circuit court hears appeals of cases decided by federal agencies and federal trial courts in nine Western states and two Pacific Island jurisdictions.

The court usually meets monthly in Seattle, San Francisco and Pasadena, Calif.; every other month in Portland; twice yearly in Honolulu; and once in Anchorage. It also takes its show on the road and hears cases at law schools in the states that comprise the district.

Our Digital Archive

This blog page archives the entire digital archive of the Tucson Citizen from 1993 to 2009. It was gleaned from a database that was not intended to be displayed as a public web archive. Therefore, some of the text in some stories displays a little oddly. Also, this database did not contain any links to photos, so though the archive contains numerous captions for photos, there are no links to any of those photos.

There are more than 230,000 articles in this archive.

In TucsonCitizen.com Morgue, Part 1, we have preserved the Tucson Citizen newspaper's web archive from 2006 to 2009. To view those stories (all of which are duplicated here) go to Morgue Part 1
