    The Capital Area Muslim Bar Association (CAMBA) is proud to co-sponsor Supreme Court Term in Review: A View from the Press Gallery.  Join us this summer for a look at the recently concluded Supreme Court term— through the eyes of the reporters who cover SCOTUS. Our panelists will highlight significant cases, discuss the effects of these decisions, and make a few educated guesses about what lies ahead for the Court.

    Our invited panelists include:

    • Robert Barnes (Washington Post)
    • Joan Biskupic (Reuters)
    • Ariane de Vogue (CNN)
    • Amy Howe (SCOTUSblog)
    • Adam Liptak (New York Times)
    • Tony Mauro (National Law Journal)
    • David Savage (Los Angeles Times)
    The panel will be moderated by Arthur Spitzer, legal director of the ACLU of the District of Columbia. This lively group will consider questions such as: Can an Asian-American rock band called The Slants be denied a trademark because that phrase “may disparage . . . persons, living or dead”?  Can a Border Patrol officer be held liable for shooting and killing an unarmed Mexican citizen when the officer was in the United States and the victim was across the border in Mexico? Can former sex offenders be banned for life from accessing most of the Internet including nytimes.com?

    Join us for lunch and the chance to learn about how the justices interact, how things have changed now that Justice Gorsuch has replaced Justice Scalia, whether Justice Kennedy or someone else is likely to retire, and how the media covers the Court.

    Co-sponsors include: The Washington Council of Lawyers; DC Lawyer Chapter of the American Constitution Society; the Bar Association of DC; the Capitol Hill Area Chapter of the Federal Bar Association; the Capital Area Muslim Bar Association; the D.C. Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers; and the Greater Washington Area Chapter, Women Lawyers Division, National Bar Association.
