Upcoming High School Graduation Spurs Religious Debate - Electorate Frustration and Social Media for Politics - Fair Housing Act - Wine Law
June 16, 2011
Hosted by Squire Patton Boggs
Join us this week on Capital Thinking with guest host Mike Dino. We will start by discussing a constitutional law case involving a complaint over the display of religious indicia in a high school auditorium where a graduation ceremony will take place later this week. Civil trial lawyer Jeffrey Pollock and law professor Seval Yildirim will weigh in. Next, if you are frustrated with the state of things in Washington, join us for a discussion with Lisa Borders, co-founder of the non-partisan group "No Labels," on the sustainability of our grid-locked Congress; expectations for the 2012 election; and proper usage of social media by political candidates and elected officials. Then, Scott Badami, who has extensive knowledge of housing law, will break down the Fair Housing Act, or FHA as we know it, and address housing discrimination issues. Finally, the last time you took a sip of your favorite Pinot, did wine law cross your mind? Attorney and wine aficionado Philip Hinerman will explain the legal facets of the fermented fruit juice.
