SETH F. KREIMER Professor of Law delivered “Technologies of Protest: Insurgent Social Movements and the First Amendment in the Era of the Internet” at the 20 th Annual Edward V. Sparer Conference on Social Movements and Law Reform at Penn Law School in March. The article will appear in a forthcoming issue of the University of Pennsylvania Law Review. Over the course of the last year he has delivered a series of presentations on the constitutional law of the contested presidential election. These included two ad hoc symposia at the Law School, a presentation to a reunion of Penn Law’s international alumni in April and on a panel hosted by the National Constitution Center. He presented “Looking for Loopholes: The Supreme Court’s Assault on Federal Power and Civil Rights Enforcement” at a CLE seminar sponsored by the Public Interest Section of the Philadelphia Bar in June. Kreimer served as co-counsel with the Womens’ Law Project and the Center for Reproductive Law and Policy in Ferguson v. City of Charleston 121 S. Ct. 1281 (2001), which reversed the Fourth Circuit, and held a decision by a municipal hospital, in consultation with local police, to subject pregnant women to involuntary drug tests and to forward positive results to prosecutors, violated the Fourth Amendment. At the request of the Women’s Law Project, Kreimer authored an amicus brief for In Adoption of RBF and RCF (67 MDa99 Pa. Super 2000) in which a three-judge panel of the Superior Court, by a vote of 2-1 rejected the claims of a lesbian couple who sought to jointly adopt the biological children of one of the partners. The Superior Court granted rehearing en banc before which he argued the case in June. The panel majority ruled against his argument in November In Re RBF 762 A.2d 739 (Pa. Super 2000); the Pennsylvania Supreme Court accepted an appeal of the case. Kreimer continues to serve as co-counsel with the ACLU in Unity 2000 v. City of Philadelphia (E.D.Pa. 2000), challenging the city’s denial of parade permits pursuant to an “omnibus special events permit” which reserved all public venues in the city of Philadelphia for the use of the Republican National Convention. The city settled the case by granting the requested permits.
