The 9th Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco begins hearing oral arguments on whether the California gubernatorial recall election should take place Oct. 7 as scheduled. Last week, a three-judge panel of the court postponed the election, ruling the use of error-prone punch-card ballots in six counties would disenfranchise voters. NPR's Robert Siegel speaks with University of Southern California law professor Howard Gillman.
