On Monday, February 10, Michael Teter, Associate Professor of Law at the University of Utah S.J. Quinney College of Law, and Alex Dahl, a shareholder at Brownstein Hyatt Farber Schreck in Washington, DC, and former Senior Counsel to the Senate Judiciary Committee, will present a Downtown CLE on the causes and consequences of filibuster reform in the U.S. Senate.
Senate Democrats recently changed the filibuster rules on votes to confirm judicial and executive branch nominations. Under the old rules, at least 60 votes were required to invoke cloture and cut off debate on nominations. Under the new rules, however, the vote to end a filibuster and invoke cloture requires only 51 votes, so that a bare majority of the Senate can advance nominations.
The discussion will take place at noon in the offices of Ray Quinney & Nebeker, 36 S. State #1400. Registration is required for one hour free CLE and/or lunch, which is $15.00.
