Ojo: The "Cholo Word Of The Day" is simply for fun. This is not an academic exercise, therefore I do not spend much time checking for espelling or grammatical errors. Most of the words are not only used by "cholos," but by many people in S. Texas - and their usage can vary. c/s

Professor at Supreme Court

My Civil Procedure professor, Joaquin Avila, will be in front of the Supreme Court tomorrow as they listen to arguments in regard to the Texas Redistricting Case. He's 2nd chairing, so he won't really speak, but this is his 3rd time before the Supreme Court. He sent us an email telling us that he would "take a pass" if they asked him any questions. It was pretty damn funny.

The folks from Texas handling the case, hired him to be their coach. We'll see what happens. Also, here's how Texas Redistricting is affecting the Valley.

I don't get why the "take a pass" stuff was funny. Make MacArthur geniuses have a different sense of humor.

Sorry! Cindy. It's cause in his class, when students aren't prepared, they "take a pass." It's usually not a good thing.

Take a pass before the Supreme Court! That is funny. I can see Scalia saying "Well, counsel, you can have your pass, but there will be no more for this October term!" je je je

It's interesting that you draw parallels with your professor's second chair participation and his class procedure. Is he representing MALDEF or Lulac?
