Attorney Dana Hrelic Moderates Panel on Stare Decisis and the New Roberts Court
The U.S. Supreme Court’s decision to overrule Roe v. Wade has many questioning whether the new Roberts Court approaches stare decisis in a fundamentally different way than its predecessors. In the last five years alone, the Court has overruled major precedents and upended long-standing law running the gamut from Second Amendment rights to religious exercise. At the same time, the Court has declined opportunities to overrule other influential but deeply criticized (and polarizing) precedent. Join us for a panel discussion where leading scholars explore this tension, discuss where they see the Court heading, and offer their perspectives on what role precedent plays in that journey.

Hrelic served as a moderator for a panel discussion presented by the CT Bar Institute, in which leading scholars explored this tension, discussed where they see the Court heading, and offered their perspectives on what role precedent plays in that journey.
