Stokes, 3L, Leads ASUN Student Court Decision

Alyssa Stokes

Alyssa Stokes, 3L, serves as the Chief Justice for the Student Court of the Association of Students for the University of Nebraska (ASUN). On Tuesday, March 28, the Court convened to hear the first and only issue to go before the Court this year.

The Daily Nebraskan, UNL’s student newspaper, filed a complaint to the Student Court against ASUN and Spencer Hartman is his official capacity as President of ASUN.

Stokes authored the opinion that reads in part, “The Court finds that giving the President the authority to reduce an appropriation, without explicit language permitting such action in the Bylaw, erroneously allows the President to legislate and substitute his will for the will of the legislative body of ASUN.”

Stokes’ term as Chief Justice ends on Wednesday, March 29.
