Are nationwide injunctions unlawful? During the Obama Administration's eight years, district judges issued twenty nationwide injunctions, which bar the enforcement of a federal policy nationwide. During the Trump Administration, district judges have issued around forty nationwide injunctions. 

Join the Philadelphia Lawyers' Chapter Federalist Society on Tuesday, December 3, from 5:30-7:30 for a discussion on this important topic. The event will take place at the offices of Littler Mendelson, 1601 Cherry Street #1400, Philadelphia. There will be a reception with food and beverages from Matt & Marie's Modern Italian Sandwiches.

The event will feature Scott Keller and Professor Tobias Wolff. Keller is a partner at Baker Botts's Washington D.C. office. Previously the Solicitor General of Texas, Keller has argued 11 cases before the U.S. Supreme Court. Joining him is Tobias Wolff, the Jefferson B. Fordham Professor of Law at the University of Pennsylvania Law School. He is an expert on civil procedure, complex litigation, and constitutional law. Wolff also frequently serves as pro bono counsel for LGBT plaintiffs pursuing civil rights claims.
