Watada attorney, professor to debate war case at UH

Advertiser Staff

First Lt. Ehren Watada's case against the war in Iraq will be debated tomorrow from 12:40 to 1:25 p.m. at the William S. Richardson School of Law at the University of Hawai'i at Manoa.

Watada's attorney, Eric Seitz, will debate Professor Michael Lewis, a visiting law professor from Northern Ohio University, in a debate entitled "Lt. Watada's Case and the Legality of the War in Iraq."

The debate is free and open to the public and will take place at the law school's Moot Court Room.

On Friday, the Army moved to bring Watada to trial again on charges of missing movement and on conduct unbecoming an officer. The Army has not set a date for a second court-martial.

This event is the first of a series of debates sponsored by the American Constitution Society and the Federalist Society.
