How will the successor to Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg impact the U.S. Supreme Court in both the short- and long-term?

And, far less importantly, what’s it like to argue a Supreme Court case via telephone?

Hot Topics in Appellate Law Practice (2020): Attorney’s Fees, Enforceability of NDAs, and Persuasive Authority

Session 1: Attorney's Fees Update - Examine recent case law governing how to prove up attorney’s fees at trial and keep them on appeal. Session 2: The Right to Retain Silence? The Enforceability of NDAs After #MeToo - The role of nondisclosure agreements in settling sexual misconduct claims has gained widespread media attention following the #MeToo and Time’s Up movements, the 2016 presidential election, the criminal trials of Harvey Weinstein and Bill Cosby, and the ouster of prominent figures such as Bill O’Reilly and Matt Lauer. The use of NDAs—typically used to protect trade secrets and other business confidential data—to shield claims of sexual misconduct from public scrutiny has raised complex legal, ethical, and moral questions, and has stirred a debate over whether courts should enforce these agreements. A focus on the enforceability of such NDAs under Texas law, including the factors courts would examine in deciding whether such contractual provisions violate public policy. Session 3: What is Persuasive Authority and When Does it Stop Being Persuasive? - What authority do courts find to be “persuasive” even when it’s not binding? And, what happens when the Legislature steps in with statutory directions about authorities the courts can reply upon?
