Highlight Reel: Vaid-Menon v. Cardona

Alok Vaid-Menon ’13, president of Stanford Students for Queer Liberation (SSQL) filed a petition last week for a case against ASSU President Angelina Cardona ’11 (EXEC-W2011-2) before the ASSU Constitutional Council. The case was regarding the ballot measure she proposed (an Advisory Question asking how Stanford students feel about the prospect of the return of ROTC to campus). With special permission, Fiat Lux brings to you the following photos from the case proceedings on the evening of March 9. We will follow up this post with a video of the highlights. (As per their request, the petitioners have not been captured in any form of photo, video or audio media and therefore we cannot show you pictures or videos from their participation in the case. We apologize if this presents a skewed coverage, but we must respect the concerns of all parties involved.)
