Faegre Baker Daniels sponsored its annual review of Supreme Court decisions on Thursday at the Wells Fargo Center in Denver.
Professor Melissa Hart of the University of Colorado Boulder, Faegre Baker Daniels partner Aaron Van Oort and Barlit Beck Herman Palenchar & Scott partner Eric Olson led the discussion. Hart and Olson previously clerked for Justice John Paul Stevens and Van Oort clerked for Justice Antonin Scalia.
The speakers touched on several high profile cases heard by the court this year and the addition of Justice Neil Gorsuch to the bench.
“They’re weirdly entertaining for surprisingly dry material,” University of Colorado Law Schoo alumnus Tosh Grebenik said. Grebenik, who practices tax law in Denver, was waitlisted for last year’s event but was able to attend at the last moment and said he thor-oughly enjoyed the review.
