What to Look for in the Alito Hearings

Capitol Hill Briefing
December 7, 2005 2:00 PM to 4:00 PM EST

Dirksen Senate Office Building SD 342

Featuring Roger Pilon, Vice President for Legal Affairs, Cato Institute, Director, Cato’s Center for Constitutional Studies

Congress should be starting the new year with a bang when it begins confirmation hearings for Judge Samuel Alito. With opposition groups unveiling their game plans and promising to do “whatever it takes” to block confirmation, the Senate Judiciary Committee will be hard‐​pressed to stay focused on the important issues before it and the nation. To get a head start on those issues, please join us for a frank discussion of the politics and law of the upcoming hearings, led by Roger Pilon, vice president for legal affairs at the Cato Institute and publisher of the Cato Supreme Court Review.
