D.C. Event on Judicial Confirmations
On Thursday, January 31, I will be taking part in a lunchtime event at the National Press Club on judicial confirmations. The event, sponsored by the Federalist Society, will feature an opening address by Senator Arlen Specter, followed by a panel discussion. My fellow panelists will include Michael J. Gerhardt of the University of North Carolina law school and Mississippi lawyer Michael B. Wallace, formerly a nominee to a Fifth Circuit vacancy (and a victim of scandalous mistreatment by the ABA’s judicial-evaluations committee). To register, or for more information, go here.
