FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

December 27, 2005 – Philadelphia, PA – The Honorable Timothy K. Lewis, a former federal appeals judge and co-chair of Schnader’s Appellate Practice Group, will participate in a panel discussion titled: “Judging Alito: Reviewing the Decisions of a Supreme Court Nominee,” presented by the Allegheny County Bar Association’s Appellate Practice Committee.

The event – on January 6, 2006 from 3 to 5 p.m. in the auditorium at the Allegheny County Bar Association (ACBA) Conference Center in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania – will feature a panel of law professors, lawyers and experts from the Third Circuit who will examine and discuss Judge Alito’s decisions in the areas of constitutional law, criminal law and procedure, employment discrimination, environmental and administrative law.

Judge Lewis has a unique perspective on the Supreme Court, nominee having shared the bench with him for seven years, and his perspective was sought out by the media after Judge Alito was nominated by President George W. Bush in October 2005.  In those press accounts, Judge Lewis most often noted that while he had ideological differences with Judge Alito, “there is nobody that I believe would give my case a more fair and balanced treatment.  He has no agenda. He’s open-minded, he’s fair and he’s balanced.”  For more detail on Judge Lewis’ public comments regarding Judge Alito, please see the following page on Schnader’s Web site.

The program does qualify for two hours of substantive CLE credit in appellate practice.   Registration begins at 2:30 p.m., with the program to follow from 3:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m.  The cost is $60 for ACBA members, $85 for nonmembers, and $30 for nonlawyer attendees or noncredit auditors. For more information, or to register before January 6, contact Danielle Foster at the ACBA at 412-402-6612, or by e-mail at dfoster@acba.org.
