This week's show focuses on the U.S. Supreme Court in both a general and specific sense. Mark Haddad, who's handled a number of appeals before the country's court of last resort, joins the program to discuss his experience with those cases, and the particular rigors they present. Mr. Haddad, a former clerk for Justice William Brennan and now a Partner with Sidley Austin, will describe unique strategies and novel approaches an appellate counselor does well to ply when trying matters before the country's high court.
Then, Peter Altman, of Akin Gump, will be on to examine a specific Supreme Court ruling, in a securities fraud appeal regarding insider tips conveyed to close friends and relatives. He'll tell us how this opinion clarifies the doctrine, but also leaves some important questions unanswered.
