State and Local Legal Center: SCOTUS Preview Webinar

While the U.S. Supreme Court has agreed to hear lots of interesting cases relevant to states and local governments in its new term beginning on October 5, 2020, many are holdovers from last term. The Court has also accepted numerous new cases of interest, including another challenge to the Affordable Care Act and a challenge to Philadelphia’s refusal to work with Catholic Social Service regarding placing foster children because it won’t place them with same-sex couples. Join Deepak Gupta of Gupta Wessler (who is counsel for Philadelphia, and who will also argue a pair of major personal-jurisdiction cases from Montana and Minnesota), Andrew Pinson, Georgia’s Solicitor General (who will argue a case about whether plaintiffs can prevent a case from being dismissed as moot by seeking “nominal damages” after a government changes the challenged policy), and Kevin Daley of the Washington Free Beacon, in a discussion of the cases most interesting to states and local governments that the Court has agreed to hear so far.  Thanks to NACo for hosting! 

Date:  October 27

Time:  12PM Central
