Meeting September 9, 2010 -- confirmed speakers!

Hello all --

The 2010-2011 Thomas Jefferson Inn of Court program schedule begins September 9 at 6:00 p.m. The evening promises to provide a unique opportunity for members and their guests to informally discuss trial and court room issues with judges from three local courts. The Honorable B. Waugh Crigler will share perspective from the United States District Court, the Honorable J. Michael Gamble will offer a view from the Circuit Court of Nelson County, and the Honorable Robert H. Downer, Jr. will reveal an outlook from the bench of the Charlottesville General District Court. In an effort to ensure that our panel members not only discuss issues important to them, but also focus on issues important to you, we invite you to submit, in advance, questions or issues you would like addressed. Send any such topics or inquires to us at wwtanner@paynehodous.com or wha9a@virginia.edu. We look forward to seeing you on the 9th.

Thanks--The Board
