From a front-row seat in a packed room, Thompson Coburn partner Bill Bay live-tweeted two major speeches yesterday from the ABA Annual Meeting in San Francisco.
U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder addressed the ABA House of Delegates in the morning, making a historic announcement about the Department of Justice’s plan to reduce some federal minimum sentences for drug offenses. Later that day, Hillary Clinton accepted the ABA Medal and made an impassioned speech supporting voter rights. There was widespread news coverage of both speeches.
Bay is the immediate past chair of the 60,000-member ABA Section of Litigation.
