Scholars & Scribes Review the Rulings: The Supreme Court's 2004-2005 Term
Recorded on July 7, 2005
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
