IJ’s Bullock Addresses National Constitution Center
On April 10, 2006, IJ Senior Attorney Scott Bullock had the honor of presenting the fourth annual John M. Templeton, Jr. Lecture on Economic Liberties and the Constitution at the National Constitution Center on Philadelphia’s Independence Mall. Bullock spoke on the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision in Kelo v. New London, which he, along with Senior Attorney Dana Berliner, litigated from the trial court up to the U.S. Supreme Court. Renowned scholar and long-time IJ friend, Professor Doug Kmiec, moderated the event while Columbia University Professor Thomas Merrill provided commentary. In his lecture, Bullock called Kelo the most despised Supreme Court decision in recent memory and one that has created huge national momentum to change eminent domain laws to protect home and small business owners.
