Walter Dellinger to speak on the Rehnquist Court
On November 2, Columbia ACS is sponsoring a talk by Walter Dellinger on “The Rehnquist Court in Retrospect.” Dellinger is the Douglas B. Maggs Professor of Law at Duke University. He served as acting Solicitor General for the 1996-97 Term of the Supreme Court. Dellinger argued nine cases before the Court, including cases dealing with physician assisted suicide, the line item veto, the cable television act, the Brady Act, the Religious Freedom Restoration Act and the constitutionality of remedial services for parochial school children. Mark your calendar! Thomas, tch2105, or Mary Kelly, mp2331, for more information.
