Is this panel going to be available anywhere for download, viewing, or listening for those of us who couldn't make it?

Professor, you were the most cogent and reasonable of the three speakers, though I regret to say I mised the end of your remarks. Mr. Sample lost me with his references to "swift-boating" and corporate influence, etc. What I would like to know is: "Why does the (mandatory) bar have to do the monitoring?" To paraphrase Scrooge, "Are there no newspapers? Are there no radio station? Are there no....blogs?"

There are.

Swiftboating.

Corporate influence.

"Why does the (mandatory) bar have to do the monitoring?"

Good rhetorical question. The minutes of the August 17, 2007 meeting the State Bar's Professionalism Committee include this in President Basting's briefing about the committee.

"These oversight committees are 501c3s, are independent, and are non-profits with no affiliation to the bar or Supreme Court.

...

"Any campaign oversight committee / task force formed would be a separate, independent, permanent group. Its funding would come from a variety of sources; such as grants."

Good thing they're not "agencies."

Terrence Berres said...

Jonathan: see Suhr on agency.

Suhr on Agency

Wisconsin Practice Series, v.14.

Which is more reprehensible -- swiftboating or borking?

iT said...

"Tibet! Tibet!"

Oh sorry I thought you said Bjorking.

Rick Esenberg said...

Thanks, Jonathan. Unfortunately, anon, there is no audio or video.

IT would be happy to know that I somehow managed to work Bjork into Civil Procedure this year.

iT said...

Not bad, but see D. Papke's citations to Devo in Property.

Terrence Berres said...

cf. Bogos on "illusory tenant".

Rick Esenberg said...

I can roll with that. When I was Developments editor of the Harvard Law Review, we had a t-shirt made that said "We are Devo" with an appropriate picture. I wish I still had it although I have to admit it might fit.

lol

I'd like to commend Atty. Berres on his dry sense of humor (which I've noticed before).
