Free Webinars Review SCOTUS Decisions Impacting Local Government
The NJLM through its partnership with the National League of Cities supports the State and Local Legal Center. The SLLC files amicus curiae briefs in support of states and local governments in the U.S. Supreme Court. Now that the Supreme Court has finished its term the SCOTUS review webinars will begin. Both SLLC webinars below are free and open to anyone who is interested in attending.
a. Supreme Court Review
The census citizenship question case and the partisan gerrymandering cases were the blockbusters of the Supreme Court’s recent term for states and local governments. Join Judith Vale, Senior Assistant Solicitor General at the Office of the New York State Attorney General, who co-wrote the State of New York’s brief in the census case and Paul Hughes, Mayer Brown, who argued an agency deference case and co-wrote the challengers' brief in one of the partisan gerrymandering cases, in a discussion of these cases and other cases of interest to states and local governments on topics including: religious displays on public property, takings, alcohol regulation, and employment.

The Supreme Court decided no shortage of police cases this term. Topics covered range from forfeitures to fabrication of evidence to First Amendment retaliatory arrest. Join Lauren Kuley, Squire Patton Boggs, who wrote the SLLC/IMLA amicus brief in a Fourth Amendment impaired driving case and Spencer Driscoll, Sidley Austin, who wrote the SLLC/IMLA amicus brief in a case involving the double jeopardy’s “separate sovereigns” exception in a discussion of the impact of all the police cases on states and local governments.
