“The Federal Court Nominations Battles: Have We Considered the Consequences?”

On September 8, 2011 by Schnader

Hon. Timothy K. Lewis, co-chair of the Firm’s Appellate and Alternative Dispute Resolution Practice Groups, is the featured guest blogger for The Peter Jennings Project Blog. Judge Lewis recently authored the blog post, “The Federal Court Nominations Battles: Have We Considered the Consequences?” which discusses the recent limbo of federal court nominations. This blog post was also featured on ThinkProgress.org.

Judge Lewis is on the Advisory Board for The Peter Jennings Project for Journalists and the Constitution, named for Peter Jennings, the late, long-time anchor and editor of ABC News “World News Tonight.” The Peter Jennings Project for Journalists and the Constitution is an annual event hosted by the National Constitution Center and funded initially by the Annenberg Foundation. Its mission is to help both professional journalists and students interested in journalism understand constitutional issues more deeply. Through that discovery, the Project participants and, in turn, those who are touched by their work, will see that the constitutional discussion is not limited to the domain of the court system, academic exchange, and the introductory experience of high school civics classes. Instead, constitutionalism reaches into the fabric of daily life and therefore affects so much of what journalists write, broadcast, edit, and produce.
