The Hobby Lobby Moot Court
Off to New York City after today’s show for Friday night’s Socrates in the City with Eric Metaxas, focused on The Happiest Life. A few tickets may be available for the Union League event so I hope my NYC friends can come out. Last night’s The Happiest Life Event in La Crescenta was packed and fun, as I hope the NYC and San Diego event Sunday evening will be. I will also be appearing at the Irvine Presbyterian Church in Irvine, California with Don Barkley at 9 AM on Sunday for the last “Ask A Christian” event, which is also free and open to the public.
On Wednesday I hosted Dean Erwin Chemerinsky of the the University of California School of Law and Dean John Eastman, dean emeritus of Chapman University’s Fowler School of Law in a broadcast “moot court” of the Hobby Lobby and Conestoga Woods cases, which will be heard before the Supreme Court on 3/25. Both men are experienced Supreme Court litigators, and both are fundamentally opposed on how the cases ought to be decided. Listening and/or reading is excellent preparation for the actual case argument which will again pit Solicitor General Donald Verrilli against former Solicitor General Paul Clement and his colleagues in a replay of the first Obamacare argument and decision of two years ago. The audio and transcript of the moot court are posted below.
