Understanding Key Supreme Court Decisions on Campaign Finance and Employment Discrimination; The Business Impact of Regulating Domestic Energy Production
July 2, 2009
Hosted by Squire Patton Boggs
The Supreme Court wrapped up its 2008-09 session with several key decisions this week and the postponement of a decision that foreshadows major changes in politics. Campaign finance lawyer Bill McGinley is our guest as we talk about the Supreme Court's surprising decision to hold a special hearing in September on the Citizens United case - is this the end of the road for McCain-Feingold's restrictions on political speech? Next, we examine the Ricci case with Doug Mish kin, a leading employment lawyer in Washington, as he discusses what the landmark employment discrimination suit means for employers trying to comply with the law and promote a diverse workplace. Then, Denver attorney Carolyn McIntosh joins the show to talk about how evolving state and federal regulation of oil and gas exploration is impacting the domestic energy development business.
