The Honorable John Colyer QC questioned what Americans are doing to remedy the problems, “This has been enormously bad publicity not only for America but for democracy” he observed. Professor Kreimer responded, “Given the hard feelings that came out of this election, I doubt any change will occur in the next decade because of political repercussions that are still being played out.” Professor Scheppele added, “There was supposed to be a political ending to this story by throwing the question to Congress, but the Supreme Court gave it a judicial ending.” After a black tie dinner held at Philadelphia’s historic Union League, the weekend events wrapped up with a visit to the nearby Barnes Foundation galleries to view the largest collection of Impressionist art collected outside of Europe. The next gathering of PLES will take place in June 2002 in Berlin, Germany.
