12 East Ohio Street
Chicago, IL 60611
Please join the Chicago Lawyers Chapter for a luncheon with Chief Judge Sutton, United States Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit and Justice Evan Young, Texas Supreme Court. Justice Young will interview Judge Sutton after brief remarks from Judge Sutton about his book, Who Decides? State as Laboratories of Constitutional Experimentation.
"A unique defense of Federalism, [Who Decides makes] the case that constitutional law in America—encompassing the systems of all 51 governments—should have a role in assessing the right balance of power among all branches of our state and federal governments.
Everything in law and politics, including individual rights, comes back to divisions of power and the evergreen question: Who decides? Who wins the disputes of the day often turns on who decides them. And our acceptance of the resolution of those disputes often turns on who the decision maker is-because it reveals who governs us."
