In collaboration with the New-York Historical Society, the Bryant Park Reading Room presents a series of free lectures on popular topics including the Supreme Court, the Cold War, presidential biography, and more.
The decisions of the Nation’s highest court have a lasting impact on how individuals and large organizations alike operate under the law. Join us for a talk on some of the most pivotal modern cases, including Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission (2010), which restricts the right of governments to limit campaign contributions by corporations and unions, and Obergefell v. Hodges (2015), which federally granted the right to same-sex marriage.
Michael G. Trachtman is a founder and president of Powell, Trachtman, Logan, Carrle & Lombardo, P.C., a litigation and business practice law firm, and the author of The Supremes’ Greatest Hits: The 44 Supreme Court Cases That Most Directly Affect Your Life.
