Ten Muslim students who were convicted of misdemeanors after disrupting the Israeli ambassador's speech at the University of California, Irvine, have filed appeals.
The Los Angeles Times reports ( http://lat.ms/pnWQc8) that the students say the law used to convict them last month of willfully disrupting a meeting is vague and unconstitutional.
Prosecutors argued that students broke the law by taking turns interrupting Israeli Ambassador Michael Oren's speech in February 2010.
Defense attorneys argued that the students' speech was being censored.
The appeal will not impact the sentence of 56 hours of community service, fines and probation for the students. Three of them are from UC Riverside and seven are from UC Irvine.
Orange County prosecutors say they'll file a response to the appeal.
