State Efforts to Rein In ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act) Lawsuits Labor & Employment Law Practice Group Teleforum Thursday, July 20, 02:00 PMFederalist Society Teleforum Conference Call
July 26th will mark the 26th anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act. Enacted in 1990 to prohibit discrimination of the disabled and provide disability access to public accommodations nationwide, it has also been used throughout the years as the basis for thousands of lawsuits across the country. These lawsuits can sometimes result in financial windfalls for trial attorneys with little to no impact on improving access for the disabled community. Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich will discuss the strategies his office has employed to ensure this important law is used properly.
- Hon. Mark Brnovich, Arizona Attorney General

Eighteen days after the Supreme Court granted certiorari in Trump v. International Refugee Assistance Project and stay applications were granted in part, on July 14, Judge Watson of the District Court of Hawaii ruled that grandparents, grandchildren, aunts, uncles, and other relatives of people could not be prevented from entering the country as they qualified as persons with a “bona fide relationship” under the Supreme Court ruling.
Yesterday, the Supreme Court upheld parts of the District Court order. Ilya Somin and Josh Blackman will join us again to discuss the latest development in the litigation of Executive Order 13780.

Antitrust Enforcement in the Modern Era Corporations, Securities & Antitrust Practice Group Teleforum Friday, July 21, 02:00 PMFederalist Society Teleforum Conference Call
With a change in administration, businesses and consumers alike are searching the tea leaves for indications about how new policy setters will analyze market power, mergers and acquisitions. Will economic analysis play a greater or lesser role? Will the conventional distinctions between horizontal and vertical mergers persist? How will consumer interest be weighed? On the international front, is foreign countries’ use of competition laws to influence or judge American businesses on the rise and, if so, to what effect?

Are Existing Civil Rights Policies Based on a Statistical Understanding That Is the Opposite of Reality? Civil Rights Practice Group Teleforum Monday, July 24, 02:00 PMFederalist Society Teleforum Conference Call
For decades, the DOJ’s civil rights enforcement policies regarding lending, school discipline, and criminal justice have been premised on the belief that relaxing standards and otherwise reducing the frequency of adverse outcomes will reduce percentage racial differences in rates of experiencing those outcomes. Exactly the opposite is the case. Generally reducing any adverse outcome tends to increase, not decrease, percentage racial differences in rates of experiencing those outcomes. This Teleforum will discuss whether the Sessions DOJ will be able to understand the statistical issues and, if so, how such understanding should affect civil rights enforcement policies.
