W&M Law School to Present Mock Schwarzenegger vs EMA Case

August 23, 2010 -

In what could be a preview of what might happen when the Supreme Court finally addresses the Schwarzenegger v. Entertainment Merchants Association case this fall or early next year, the Institute of Bill of Rights Law (IBRL) at William & Mary Law School will run through the violent videogame case as part of its 2010-2011 Supreme Court Preview.

The two-day event kicks off on Friday night, September 24 and will feature experienced Supreme Court advocates presenting arguments before the IBRL’s mock panel of Supreme Court Justices. Events will conclude in a 9am to 4pm session on Saturday, September 25.

This year’s participants include Lyle Denniston from the SCOTUS Blog, USA Today’s Joan Biskupic, The Wall Street Journal’s Jess Bravin, the New York Times’ Adam Liptak, University of California, Irvine School of Law Dean Erwin Chemrinsky, U.S. Department of Justice Deputy Assistant Attorney General Beth Brinkman and William & Mary School of Law Dean Davison Douglas.

Anyone interested in attending can, though a registration fee of $325 is required.

Chemrinksy is an interesting add. He lectured on constitutional law in my bar prep course, and is considered a major expert on the subject, so I'd like to see his take on it.

 

Even still, none of these people share a brain with any of the Nine. So unless each of them is going to "be" a different Justice and rule according to how they would rule, I don't know how good a predictor the outcome will be.

Please post the results of this later on. The price to watch this is quite steep. :(

My sympathies to the poor sod who draws the short stick and has to argue for CA's law.

I admire your optimism and hope you're right, but I'm not going to count my chickens until they hatch...

Re: W&M Law School to Present Mock Schwarzenegger vs EMA ...

Normally I'd agree but in this case it's as simple as looking at an empty basket and counting zero chickens.

But I want chickens!  Heh...no, I get what you mean.  I tend to be a "defensive pessimist"...meaning I prepare for the negative outcome (unlike passive pessimists who just give up), which colors my outlook on things.

Defensive Pessimist?  Dude just cut out the middle man (and most of the work) and go Cynic!

Brad GlasgowWhy would he say the company lies about getting abuse? Oh, because people don't abuse GG?08/29/2015 - 10:38am

Goth_SkunkDespite not being a fan of fighting games I had to check out that R Mika trailer. Loved it. Still won't buy the game though, on account of Isuckatstreetfighteritis.08/29/2015 - 2:42am
MechaCrashI use a Dynex DX-840 headset, but it's discontinued. :( I wanted a mono headset so I could keep the other ear free for my speakers, but it has the bonus of being very light and comfortable, so you don't notice it.08/29/2015 - 12:41am

Sora-Chantime to take up a hobby? maybe messing around in GIMP to make wallpapers? use qCAD to design somethin? open Blender and stare at it for a couple hours trying to figure what does what?08/28/2015 - 6:41pm
Big PermAlso, yes. I've been spamming the shoutbox. I don't have much going on today, don't judge me08/28/2015 - 3:25pm
Big PermThanks, but yeah. Not sure I wanna drop that kind of cash :P I don't even mind the sound quality of my krakens, it just hurts to wear em after a couple hours.08/28/2015 - 3:25pm
Sora-Chan@Big Perm: I'm a bit of a fan of the Omega Recon3D headset from SoundBlaster. Though it is a bit expensive.08/28/2015 - 2:36pm
Big PermI actually need to look into a new headset. I have those green razer krakens and I would not suggest them. Though maybe they're better for people without glasses08/28/2015 - 11:32am
