Kathleen Rubenstein, 24, a third-year law student who also lives in Woodlawn, spent 177 hours doing research on the case.

“Very few attorneys ever get to set foot in the Supreme Court. I feel very fortunate. To see your research in print [and submitted to the Supreme Court] is really exciting.’’

Four of the students attended the Supreme Court hearing Wednesday.

“It was really, really wonderful,’’ Rubenstein said afterwards.
