FED SOC TO HOST EPSTEIN, TIERNEY DEBATE OVER SPITZER, MONDAY

We have received the following invitation to a great event from the Federalist Society:

The Federalist Society invites you to a debate featuring Richard Epstein and James Tierney:
Is Eliot Spitzer good for America? The Role of State Attorneys General.

When: Monday, January 23rd
Time: 12:20 - 1:20
Where: JG 103

New York's Attorney General may be better known than its Governor. Love him or hate him, Eliot Spitzer has changed the way people view the State AG. Is his "activist" style too disruptive of business? Has he abused his power in pursuit of political ambition? Or is it just what we need to make America safe for capitalism?

Come hear --- and --- debate these questions and more.
