Professors will also speak of Justice's Kagan's potential influence on the Court.
Catered LUNCH w/drinks PROVIDED (while supplies last, first come, first served, enough for approximately 120 people) THIS IS A MUST SEE (ONLY @ BERKELEY LAW) MEGA EVENT MUST BRING VALID CAL-BERKELEY ID TO BE ADMITTED.
A sampling of some of the hot cases to be discussed:
•Schwarzenegger v. Video Software Dealers Association— This case tests a California law that prohibits the sale or rental of violent video games to minors. In April in a related matter, the court rejected arguments by Kagan's office to bar the sale of images of animal cruelty, such as dogfighting.
•Snyder v. Phelps— This case tests the speech rights of Kansas preacher Fred Phelps, who uses the venue of military funerals to publicize his protests against homosexuality. Phelps and his associates carried signs bearing anti-gay slurs outside services in Westminster, Md., for a U.S. Marine killed in Iraq. The Marine's father sued Phelps for infliction of emotional distress and won a $5 million verdict; an appeals court reversed the decision on free-speech grounds.
•Connick v. Thompson— This tests the liability of a prosecutor who failed to reveal exculpatory evidence, including blood from a murder scene, in a case that led to the freeing of a Louisiana death row inmate."
