The Trump Administration’s appointment of over 200 federal judges has transformed the federal bench across the country. This presentation will discuss the impact of that transformation by diving into the numbers, evaluating the shifting balance on federal courts, and revealing how the politics of judicial appointments have left some jurisdictions with longstanding vacancies (and overloaded court dockets), even as record numbers of judges are appointed elsewhere. The presentation will also highlight the many ways in which business litigation is affected by judicial appointments and what businesses can expect in future appointments based on the potential outcomes of the upcoming presidential and senatorial elections.
The confirmed speaker for this program, which is pending one general Continuing Legal Education credit in the state of Colorado, are as follows:
- Mark Champoux, Partner, DGS
