The Heritage Foundation hosted its annual “Scholars & Scribes” forum to review the Supreme Court’s most significant decisions during its 2011-2012 term.
The panel began with how the Court’s decision in the Health Care case impacts the future of constitutional law, limited government, and substantive health care reform. Other featured cases discussed included the Arizona immigration law, GPS tracking, FCC indecency rules, and religious liberty.
U.S. Solicitor General Donald Verrilli appeared in the first panel alongside New York University law Professor Richard Epstein and National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB) Supreme Court attorney Michael Carvin. The second panel featured reporters that cover the Supreme Court for leading news organizations and political blogs.
Attorney General Edwin Meese, who served under Ronald Reagan, moderated this first panel. Heritage's Center for Legal & Judicial Studies Director Todd Gaziano led the second panel discussion.
