Lawyer Ema Calvo, 50, center, holds a banner that reads in Spanish; "French kidnapper and murderess," protesting the possible release of imprisoned French woman Florence Cassez, in front of Mexico's Supreme Court building, where a panel of five justices deliberate the fate of Cassez, whose kidnapping conviction caused international friction and prompted a national debate about the country's troubled legal system, in Mexico City, Wednesday March 21, 2012. The supreme court judges will consider a proposal by fellow justice Arturo Zaldivar to free Cassez because of the inappropriate handling of her case in 2005. She is serving a 60-year sentence.
