Supreme court profile shadow

Join Pacific Legal Foundation, America’s Future, and The Federalist Society for a cocktail reception and discussion as we mark the end of the Supreme Court term.

There’s a lot to talk about: The Court just set major precedents in environmental law and property rights. It heard hot-button cases about affirmative action at universities and the liability of social media platforms. Complex cases split the Justices in unpredictable ways: On the question of whether California can regulate out-of-state pork, for example, Justice Ketanji Brown Jackson sided with Chief Justice John Roberts and Justices Samuel Alito and Brett Kavanaugh.

What do the term’s big decisions and dissents mean? Come ask experts face-to-face. The evening’s featured speakers are:

  • Damien Schiff (Pacific Legal Foundation), who won a big Supreme Court victory this term challenging EPA overreach;
  • Bradley Benbrook (Benbrook Law Group), a California-based attorney who specializes in high-profile litigation;
  • Anastasia P. Boden (Cato Institute), director of the Robert A. Levy Center for Constitutional Studies whose writings on law and liberty have been featured extensively in national publications;
  • Kent S. Scheidegger (Criminal Justice Legal Foundation), who has written over 150 briefs for the Supreme Court.

Join us on Thursday, July 20, in Sacramento, California, for discussion—including a Q&A—and a cocktail reception.

The Presiding Justice Robert K. Puglia Sacramento Chapter of the Federalist Society for Law and Public Policy Studies is a Sacramento-area group interested in the current state of the legal order. As a Lawyers Chapter of the national Federalist Society, it is founded on the principles that the state exists to preserve freedom, that the separation of governmental powers is central to our Constitution, and that it is emphatically the province and duty of the judiciary to say what the law is, not what it should be. The Federalist Society seeks both to promote an awareness of these principles and to further their application through its activities.
