2009 Celebration of Excellence

ABL attended the Celebration of Excellence. Met Justices Scalia and O'Connor (I am sure it was the highlight of their evening). Enjoyed fabulous food (the pumpkin soup was rivaled only by the crab cakes). Reconnected with friends. Thanks to SouthWest, ABL was free to move about the USSC. Thank you Cindy Dennis!

Federal Bench & Bar dinner

As always, it was an excellent event. A great opportunity to see colleagues and meet a few new ones. Judge Arcara fondly recalled the life and career of Judge Elfvin (n.b. one friendly supplement: Elfvin started his law school career at Harvard while working at GE and that he transferred to Georgetown when he went to DC to work for the Department of the Navy).
