Among Chief Justice John Roberts' first full term highlights were a number of decisions on race and public schools, free speech, and abortion. Richard W. Garnett, the John Cardinal O'Hara, CSC associate professor of law at Notre Dame University participated in a discussion with two other leading U.S. Supreme Court watchers in front of a live audience at the National Constitution Center in Philadelphia.

The July 10 event analyzed highlights of the latest term of the Supreme Court and addressed the question, "How has the new conservative majority affected the court?" The 51-minute program aired on National Public Radio's "Justice Talking" and is available on the Web at http://www.justicetalking.org/viewprogram.asp?progID=612. A follow-up question and answer session is also available for download from the Web site.

Other speakers were Supreme Court reporter for ABC News Jan Crawford Greenburg, and Geoffrey Stone, a law professor at the University of Chicago.

Garnett's areas of research interest and expertise include school choice, church/state relations, free speech and expressive association, federalism and criminal law, and the death penalty. He previously clerked for Chief Judge Richard S. Arnold of the 8th Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals, and U.S. Supreme Court Chief Justice William H. Rehnquist.

Greenburg is the author of "Supreme Conflict: The Inside Story of the Struggle for Control of the United States Supreme Court," published this year. Previously she was the Chicago Tribune's national legal affairs reporter, where she won the paper's top reporting award for her coverage of the 2000 presidential election.

Stone is the Harry Kalven Jr. Distinguished Service Professor of Law at the University of Chicago. He is the author of "War and Liberty: An American Dilemma and Perilous Times: Free Speech in Wartime," which received eight national book awards. He is a member of the American Constitution Society Board of Directors.

  1. Future generations will be amazed that we prosecuted people for possessing a harmless plant. The New York Times came out in favor of legalization in Saturday's edition of the newspaper.

  2. Well, maybe it's because they are unelected, and, they have a tendency to strike down laws by elected officials from all over the country. When you have been taught that "Democracy" is something almost sacred, then, you will have a tendency to frown on such imperious conduct. Lawyers get acculturated in law school into thinking that this is the very essence of high minded government, but to people who are more heavily than King George ever did, they may not like it. Thanks for the information.

  3. I pd for a bankruptcy years ago with Mr Stiles and just this week received a garnishment from my pay! He never filed it even though he told me he would! Don't let this guy practice law ever again!!!

  4. Excellent initiative on the part of the AG. Thankfully someone takes action against predators taking advantage of people who have already been through the wringer. Well done!

  5. Conour will never turn these funds over to his defrauded clients. He tearfully told the court, and his daughters dutifully pledged in interviews, that his first priority is to repay every dime of the money he stole from his clients. Judge Young bought it, much to the chagrin of Conour’s victims. Why would Conour need the $2,262 anyway? Taxpayers are now supporting him, paying for his housing, utilities, food, healthcare, and clothing. If Conour puts the money anywhere but in the restitution fund, he’s proved, once again, what a con artist he continues to be and that he has never had any intention of repaying his clients. Judge Young will be proven wrong... again; Conour has no remorse and the Judge is one of the many conned.
