Vazquez (U.S. District Court of New Mexico) will preside over the 62nd Annual NDLS Moot Court Showcase at 4 p.m. March 1 in the Patrick F. McCartan Courtroom.

The case, Tuckerman v. Betterly Hills County School District and Bliss, presents two questions:

(1) What standard should the Court apply when deciding whether a school district has the authority to discipline students for internet speech?

(2) May a court issue an adverse inference for spoliation of evidence where the spoliating party acted negligently and without any bad faith?
