2018N1-4 - Hooked on the Horns of a Legal Dilemma: Can "Moo"tness Be Equitable?

Oct 30, 2018 10:30am ‐ Oct 30, 2018 11:30am

Standard: $25.00

Description

While Courts of Appeal across the country recognize the doctrine of equitable mootness, there are substantial differences in approach: some circuits apply the doctrine liberally, even in cases that are arguably not complex; some circuits all but call for elimination of the doctrine. Dueling in the Lone Star State may, now, be strictly forbidden—but come watch two of the nation’s top appellate advocates face off in a courtroom showdown to settle long-standing feuds about equitable mootness. Presented as a highly stimulating mock oral argument before an esteemed panel of circuit judges, this program will ponder whether an appellate court can ever “unscramble the egg,” as the advocates each try to “steer” the Bench to the right result.
