Horizontal and Vertical Federalism with State Solicitors General

San Francisco Lawyers Chapter

Please join the San Francisco Lawyers Chapter of the Federalist Society for a discussion on horizontal and vertical federalism issues with Lawrence VanDyke, Solicitor General of Nevada, and Edward DuMont, Solicitor General of California. They will discuss important cases before the Supreme Court and the federal courts, including Hyatt III (can a sovereign state be haled into another state’s courts without its consent?), Gamble v. United States (should the Court overrule the “separate sovereigns” exception to the Double Jeopardy Clause?), and Missouri v. California (does California's regulation of shelled eggs violate the Commerce Clause?). They will also have time to field questions regarding other important federalism cases, such as Murphy v. NCAA and the sanctuary cities litigation percolating across the country.
