We can't help it. We're suckers for a good preemption discussion - addicted as we are to the topic. That's why at least one of us (Bexis), and possibly both, will be attending the 2008 (9th) Annual Legal Reform Summit, hosted by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce in DC on October 29. For a copy of the agenda, see here. For the Summit's website, go here.
The Summit's less than a week before Levine will be argued in the Supreme Court on 11/3, so the preemption panel promises to be really timely. Maybe we can recruit an intrepid correspondent to give us a first-hand report on the oral argument from amongst the Washington types who will be there.
We also don't mind getting our hands on the nifty preemption handbook ($175 value, we're told) being given to all Summit attendees. Who knows, maybe we'll write a review.
There's also something called a "Congressional Landscape Briefing" that sounds really interesting. Which reminds us ... oh, yeah.... Something else important happens the day after the Levine argument. Who know, maybe one of us will win the TV giveaway and watch the election returns in style.
Anyway, we're looking forward to attending the Summit and and shooting the breeze at the networking sessions (didn't these used to be called "breaks"?) with everyone else about preemption, blogging, politics, or anything else that comes to mind. Maybe we'll see you there.
