Better Buildings Challenge - Social Media in Court - Hiring from the Competition - Debt Ceiling Crisis
July 28, 2011
Hosted by Squire Patton Boggs
Join us on this week's Capital Thinking with guest host Mike Dino as we first speak with Josh Greene regarding President Obama's Better Buildings Challenge. The challenge is a part of the President's Better Buildings Initiative launched in February, and Josh will help lay out its key points and the importance of the private sector's participation in the initiative. In today's social media saturated society, courtroom trials are always closely scrutinized by the masses via a multitude of services. Joining us next to discuss the impact of social media on jury selection, depositions, case investigation and strategy with the opposing counsel, is litigator Connie Ariagno. Then, if you are confronted with the question of hiring from the competition, you'll want to listen in as Sven Collins talks to us about best practices that will help you win or avoid legal challenges altogether when bringing someone over from the other team. Finally, even though we are less than a week away from the August 2 deadline to raise the nation's debt limit, leaders from both parties are still playing a game of dueling plans. Vince Frillici and Stan Collender will update us on the current state of the debt debate and what may happen come deadline day.
