Does AT&T really have more bars in more places? Russell King of La Crescent, Minn., and Evan Mendelson of Owings Mills, Md., will argue that they do indeed… if by bars, one means barriers to equality. They’ll be trying to break down these barriers to win restitution for AT&T employees who became pregnant before 1978—when laws were created to protect pregnant women from job discrimination—who now find their pension benefits reduced. But should the Pregnancy Discrimination Act be applied retroactively? Dominic Draye of Kenmore, Wash., and Conor Lamb of Pittsburgh, Pa., representing the petitioner AT&T, will argue that the company is being treated unfairly.
Come see what it takes to win this argument before some of the sharpest judges on the bench. This year’s competition will be judged by The Honorable Frank Easterbrook, Chief Judge of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit; The Honorable Roger L. Gregory, U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit; and the Honorable Gene E. K. Pratter, U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania and Penn Law alumna.
The Keedy Cup is the culmination of the Penn Law’s moot court tournament, named for its founder, the late Dean Edwin R. Keedy.
Cheer on your classmates and learn how to get your name on the Keedy Cup!
