Now that the Supreme Court term is ended, analyses (including ours) about the term's trends and highlights will abound. On July 7, NLJ/Legal Times will host a panel discussion at Georgetown University Law Center in D.C. to discuss the term and the Court's future. What's unique about the discussion -- our ninth annual review -- is that all the panelists have argued at least one case in the item under review.
This year, most of the panelists have been involved in some of the top decisions you've been reading about in recent days and weeks.
O'Melveny & Myers' Sri Srinivasan, who argued and won in the "honest services" fraud case of Skilling v. United States, will be on hand, as will Deputy Solicitor General Michael Dreeben, who argued for the government in Skilling and the other two companion cases on the issue. Jones Day's Michael Carvin will also join us, in the wake of Monday's decision in Free Enterprise Fund v. Public Company Accounting Oversight Board, which he argued for the fund. Rounding out the panel is Amanda Leiter of Catholic University's Columbus School of Law. The case in which she argued, Kucana v. Holder, did not make as many headlines, but Leiter clerked for Justice John Paul Stevens and can reflect on his tenure and his departure from the Court, among other topics.
