VICTORY IS SWEET  2L Samuel Rudman is the winner of Michigan Law's Henry M. Campbell Moot Court competition held April 11. Rudman, who was also named the competition's Best Oralist, argued for the petitioners in a First Amendment case involving the rights of homeschooling parents to choose not to teach a state-mandated sex education curriculum. A panel of three sitting federal appellate court judges—Gerard E. Lynch of the Second Circuit, David B. Sentelle of the D.C. Circuit, and Helene White of our own Sixth Circuit—heard the arguments. Rudman was pitted against 3L Michael Huston, who represented the fictitious State of Hutchins in the case. The Campbell Moot Court competition was established in 1926 and honors the 1878 Michigan Law graduate who founded the prominent Detroit law firm that became Dickinson Wright.
