The Columbus Lawyer Chapter of the American Constitution Society presented:
Fifth Annual Supreme Court Review
Partner, Goldstein & Russell, P.C.; Lecturer on Law, Harvard Law School; Editor, SCOTUSblog
As the Supreme Court’s October Term 2011 wound to a close in June, a tradition emerged among avid court watchers. Rather than tune cable news for the latest from the Court, they joined SCOTUSblog’s liveblog, an ingenious solution to the Court’s restrictive media policy wherein the attorneys at Goldstein & Russell, P.C. would relay the latest opinions as they were being called in by onsite legal reporter Lyle Denniston. The first people to know that the individual mandate had been upheld in National Federation of Independent Business v. Sebelius, were not those watching CNN, but rather, the 866,000 liveblog readers. At this event, Amy Howe, Partner at Goldstein & Russell, P.C. and Editor of SCOTUSblog, reviewed NFIB v. Sebelius and the rest of the Court’s October Term 2011. Ms. Howe is one of the foremost appellate attorneys in the nation, having argued two cases (Abbott v. Abbott and Greenlaw v. United States) before the high court. In addition to her private practice and legal reporting activities, she co-teaches Supreme Court Litigation at Harvard Law School.
