THE WINNERS of this year’s Edwin R. Keedy Cup managed to accomplish something that even real-world attorneys could not: upholding the Supreme Court case of Stanford vs. Kentucky. In the moot court competition last January, third-year students James Clabby and Eleanor Roy successfully defended the 1989 decision that maintained the constitutionality of executing 16- and 17-year-olds, in contradiction to the real world Supreme Court’s recent decision to outlaw the practice.

The competition’s four finalists, who also included Donna Page and Robert Potter, were chosen to compete from nearly one hundred students in a selection process that began in the spring of 2004. According to Anne Kringel, senior lecturer and faculty advisor for the national moot court team, “This year’s competition was one of the best I’ve ever seen. It combined a stellar group of advocates and a bench that was active and well prepared. The teams were perfectly matched, and the judges said the decision was very difficult.”
