The War on Economic Liberty: An Update from the Front

MCLE LUNCHEON:  The Federalist Society Invites You to Join Us for a Lunch Talk on:

"The War on Economic Liberty: An Update from the Front"

The Constitution protects the right to earn an honest living without unreasonable government interference. But you wouldn't know it from the mountains of regulations pouring forth from local, state and federal governments.  Common sense dictates that these laws put obstacles in the way of Americans being able to pursue their livelihood.

Clark Neily is a senior attorney at the Institute for Justice, a libertarian public interest law firm that challenges unconstitutional government actions in court, and is a director of its' Center for Judicial Engagement. He's been in the trenches for 13 years, having worked on Kelo v. City of New London (2005 landmark eminent domain case) and District of Columbia v. Heller that resulted in the revival of the Second Amendment in 2008.  Recent cases challenge local and state statutes regulating hair braiding, street vendors, interior designers and cab entrepreneurs.

Before joining the Institute for Justice, Mr. Neily spent four years as a litigator at the Dallas-based firm Thompson & Knight, where he worked on a wide variety of matters including professional malpractice, First Amendment and media law, complex commercial cases, and intellectual property litigation. Clark received his undergraduate and law degrees from the University of Texas, where he was Chief Articles Editor of the Texas Law Review. After law school, he clerked for Judge Royce Lamberth on the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia.

His new book is called Terms of Engagement: How Our Courts Should Enforce the Constitution’s Promise of Limited Government and it explains how what he calls "an epidemic of fake judging" has left Americans with less freedom and more oppression than promised by our Constitution.
