SGA pays for legal advice
The Student Government Association provides a lawyer at no cost to students for consultation on topics ranging from traffic offenses to family law.

Dave Meyer, a freshman pre-major, said he saved $75 in legal fees by going to the lawyer provided free of charge by the Student Government Association.

Meyer went to see the lawyer, James B. Munford, after he got a ticket for going 93 mph in a 60 mph zone. Meyer said Munford explained his legal options and recommended that he ask the prosecutor for a smaller fine or driving probation.

The Supreme Court agreed last week to hear a case challenging President Bush’s self-assumed right to hold U.S. citizens without charge and without counsel simply by labeling them as “enemy combatants.”

The case in question, Rumsfeld v. Padilla, centers around one Jose Padilla from Chicago who was arrested after visiting Pakistan. The Bush administration maintains that he was part of a plot to commit terrorist attacks in the United States.

Women’s basketball team beats DePaul, prepares to face Houston


With two home wins over the weekend, the Frogs control their own destiny in Conference USA.

Sunday afternoons are typically a time for rest.

For junior forward Sandora Irvin, Sunday afternoon was anything but restful. In fact, the only resting Irvin did against No. 12 DePaul was done by her sweat drenched No. 50 jersey, which was replaced with a dry and clean No. 20 jersey after blood stains and sweat left her with no choice but to switch jerseys.

At 10-13 and 6-6 in C-USA, the Horned Frogs may currently be sitting in eighth place, but Santee says there isn’t a team in the conference with a better backcourt than the one he and Marcus Shropshire form.
