debating FCC's Kevin Martin and U.S. Solicitor General Gregory Garre this weekend
(previous | next)

So, while the rest of you are still watching your Saturday morning cartoons this weekend, I'll be working hard to defend the First Amendment at the Federal Society's 2008 "National Lawyers Convention." I am speaking on a panel there on Saturday morning entitled "The FCC and the First Amendment" and will be going up against Federal Communications Commission Chairman Kevin Martin and Gregory Garre, the Solicitor General of the United States. The primary focus of our discussion will be the FCC v. Fox case that was recently heard by the Supreme Court. It should be an interesting conversation.

It looks like registration for the event is now closed, but I'll try to blog about it afterwords. Not sure if they are taping it or not, but if I find a video or transcript I'll post it later.
