International Society For Animal Rights Skype Presentation

“ISAR’s Analysis Of The Supreme Court Oral Argument In United States v. Stevens

Presented by Professor Henry Mark Holzer
Chairman, International Society for Animal Rights


Last week ISAR conducted a Skype presentation entitled “Unpublished insights into United States v. Stevens” with ISAR’s Chairman Professor Henry Mark Holzer.

Supporters of ISAR know that we’ve filed an amicus curiae brief in the United States Supreme Court in the First Amendment/Animal Rights case of United States v. Stevens (see ISAR’s Amicus Curiae Brief Has Been Filed In The Supreme CourtISAR Amicus Curiae Brief in U.S. v. StevensISAR In The Supreme Court Of The United StatesFree Speech and Cruelty to Animals).

In our most recent blog posting about the Stevens case, Animals in Court, we provided a list of, and links to, the briefs of the parties — the government, and Stevens — and those individuals and organizations who have filed amicus curiae briefs, and we encouraged our supporters to review the Tables of Contents to see which amici are making what arguments.

As a follow-up to ISAR’s presentation “Unpublished insights into United States v. Stevens,” ISAR will welcome back Professor Holzer (and interested Skype members) for a thirty minute presentation on Thursday, October 8, 2009 at 1:00PM Eastern Standard Time for his commentary and critique on the oral arguments in the Supreme Court two days earlier. Immediately following this presentation, Professor Holzer will take a few minutes to answer questions relating to the United States v. Stevens case.

We encourage you to forward ISAR’s presentation information along to everyone in your email contact list and ask them to do the same.
