Covering the Roberts Court in the Obama Era:
A Reporter's Reflections
Adam Liptak of The New York Times, will discuss the Supreme Court in a time of rapid change. After a decade without new justices in the final years of the Rehnquist Court, the Roberts Court has welcomed three new justices and it may well see a fourth appointment in the near future. Liptak will also consider the leadership of Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr., the impact of Justice Sonia Sotomayor and the implications for the court of the fact that it has become, given Democratic control of Congress and the Presidency, the most conservative of the three branches of government.
