Eastman among top legal scholars previewing new Supreme Court term

October 6, 2010

John Eastman, Chapman University School of Law professor and former dean, participated in a distinguished panel reviewing the important cases the U.S. Supreme Court will hear during its 2010 term.

Eastman was one of the nation’s top legal scholars who presented the third annual U.S. Supreme Court Preview last week at the USC Gould School of Law. Eastman was joined by Kathleen Sullivan of Stanford Law School and Rebecca Brown of USC. The scholars particularly discussed the case of Snyder v. Phelps, which pits the family of a Marine killed in Iraq against a church group that stages anti-homosexual protests at military funerals.

“This case is putting two fairly significant constitutional ideas at odds with each other — the right of unfettered speech and the right to be left alone at the funeral for your son or daughter,” said Eastman.
