As I previously noted, this coming 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. The list of panelists is now complete: My fellow panelists will be Michael J. Gerhardt of the University of North Carolina law school, Simon Heller of the Alliance for Justice, and Mississippi lawyer (and former Fifth Circuit nominee) Michael B. Wallace. The panel will be moderated by David Savage of the Los Angeles Times. To register, or for more information, go here.
