Scholars & Scribes Review the Rulings: The Supreme Court's 2004-2005 Term

Location: The Heritage Foundation's Lehrman Auditorium

The Supreme Court's 2004 Term is over - except for the small matter of the resignation of the Court's pivotal and consequential justice. Will Chief Justice William Rehnquist follow with a retirement announcement of his own? Will his health require that unfortunate result? Who will President Bush nominate, and how will it affect the Court's jurisprudence? This year's Scholars & Scribes will add professional prognosticating and punditry to its insightful analysis of the Court's recent rulings.

Indeed, the serious analysis of the Court's recent term has barely begun. How and where may the Ten Commandments be displayed? The Texas Solicitor General who helped prevail in Texas (and in another important case involving international law) will offer his advice. Outrage continues over the Kelo home confiscation case and some in Congress have introduced bills to overturn or limit the decision. Susette Kelo's lawyer will discuss what he thinks should be done. And will Congress permit home-grown medical marijuana? Will the music really stop while the wine flows freely over the Internet? Does the juvenile death penalty case prove a trend toward looking to foreign law in constitutional cases?

Our two panels of distinguished practitioners and Supreme Court correspondents will address these and other important questions. They will also provide their informed thoughts on the Supreme Court confirmation fight that has already begun, and is sure to intensify. It will be a Supreme Court review like none before it.
