Having delivered rulings on such controversial cases as the NSA warrantless wiretapping, the Apple
Computer, Inc. v. Microsoft Corporation copyright infringement case, and most recently the constitutional
challenge of California’s Proposition 8, Judge Vaughn R. Walker is one of the most influential judges of
our time. As the debates around the government's terrorist surveillance programs and Prop 8 continue
after recent rulings of the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals upholding Judge Walker’s rulings, the former
judge will discuss issues and challenges facing the legal profession and courts. (Recorded April 19,
