Matthew Dowd argues a pro bono case before the US Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit
At his former firm, Matthew Dowd argued a pro bono case before the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit before Judges Schroeder, Tashima, and Owens. The appeal challenged the district court's summary judgment in favor of the Commissioner of Social Security's decision to reduce the appellant's supplemental security income benefits under Title XVI of the Social Security Act. At the end of the oral argument, Judge Tashima commended Mr. Dowd for taking on the pro bono argument.
