Speaker:

  • Gregory Coleman, Yetter & Warden, LLP and former clerk to Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas

The United States Supreme Court will soon complete its 2006 term with an array of decisions on important and controversial topics such as the ban on partial-birth abortion, the use of race in assigning children to public schools, constitutional limits on punitive damages, the administration of the death penalty, the constitutionality of McCain-Feingold's limitations on certain kinds of political speech, and significant changes in patent law. Mr. Coleman will join us to review the most significant cases decided in the Court's 2006 term and share his insights on new trends that have developed after the addition of two new members to the Court.

Mr. Coleman is currently practicing law at the Austin office of Yetter & Warden, L.L.P. He previously served as Solicitor General for the State of Texas and also served as a law clerk to Justice Clarence Thomas and Judge Edith H. Jones.

Mr. Coleman is on the Board of Advisors for the Federalist Society, Austin Lawyers Chapter.
