Panel: Olmstead v. L.C.: The Supreme Court Case

Written By: Samuel Bagenstos, Irv Gornstein, Michael Gottesman, and Jennifer Mathis

Abstract

SAMUEL BAGENSTOS (MODERATOR): I’m really thrilled to be the moderator on this panel about the Olmstead case.

You have an incredible luxury here at Georgetown Law. You have faculty who are engaged in the world like two of my colleagues on this panel. To my immediate left is Professor Michael Gottesman (Georgetown University Law Center) who argued the case on behalf of Lois and Elaine, and to my next far left, Professor Irv Gornstein (Georgetown University Law Center) who argued the case on behalf of the United States. Between them is Jennifer Mathis (The Bazelon Center for Mental Health Law) who has spent, I think, most of her career at the Bazelon Center litigating, and organizing, and helping to coordinate folks on Olmstead-related issues. She played an important role in this case as it proceeded to the Supreme Court.
