Description

The Federalist Society for Law and Public Policy Studies is a group of conservatives and libertarians interested in the current state of the legal order. It is founded on the principles that the state exists to preserve freedom, that the separation of governmental powers is central to our Constitution, and that it is emphatically the province and duty of the judiciary to say what the law is, not what it should be. This podcast feed contains audio files of Federalist Society panel discussions, debates, addresses, and other events related to law and public policy.

Coleman Memorial Lecture, with former Attorney General John Ashcroft as the keynote speaker.On November 23, 2010, the Lone Star State lost one of its brightest appellate stars: Gregory S.

In Memoriam:At the age of 47 and at the height of his professional and personal life, Mr. Coleman died in an airplane crash that also claimed the lives of his mother-in-law Charlene Miller and brother-in-law James Black.

A terrible example. I have seen video of lab tests of that Audi model that supported the claims of victims. Occam's Razor would lead anyone to consider the likelihood of a new technology to create unintended consequences MUCH more likely than that dozens and dozens of unrelated people around the world have engaged in wildly inexplicable behavior. Under what circumstances would someone crash into a whole row of cars? What would cause a person to accelerate into and through the rear wall of their own garage, over the body of their 10 year-old son? (This last happened in one case not mentioned here.) There's plenty of junk science presented in courts. This is a bad example.
