Location:
Federalist Society Teleforum Conference Call

Featured Speakers:
Charles J. Cooper

Description:

Ahead of the Supreme Court's hearing of oral arguments in Mississippi v. AU Optronics on November 6, Constitutional law expert and states' rights advocate Chuck Cooper would like to encourage a broader discussion of the underlying issue of the case - what is the proper scope of federal courts' diversity jurisdiction. In a September 10 amicus brief, Cooper argues that an originalist reading of Article III suggests that an out-of-state defendant has what amounts to a Constitutional right to remove to federal court "controversies between citizens of different states" and "between a state and citizens of another state." Cooper will discuss the main points of his argument and field questions from the call-in audience.

Featuring:

  • Mr. Chuck Cooper, Founder, Cooper & Kirk, PLLC; Board Member, Access to Courts Initiative
Agenda:

Call begins at 3:00 p.m. Eastern Time.
