How Appealing

Tuesday, July 10, 2012

Programming note: On Wednesday morning, I will be in Washington, DC at The Heritage Foundation to serve as one of the panelists for the program titled "Scholars & Scribes Review the Rulings: The Supreme Court's 2011-2012 Term."

I'll be a panelist during the second hour of the program, together with David G. Savage of The Los Angeles Times and Mark Sherman of The Associated Press. And you don't want to miss the program's first hour, featuring as panelists Solicitor General Donald B. Verrilli, Jr.; law professor Richard A. Epstein; and attorney Michael Carvin.

The event can be viewed live, online at The Heritage Foundation's web site via this link. In addition, C-SPAN is planning to televise the event.

Additional posts will appear here Wednesday afternoon.
