What: A panel discussion of Tetra Tech and Wisconsin administrative law, moderated by Judge Diane Sykes of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit and featuring the following panelists: Wisconsin Solicitor General Misha Tseytlin; Professor Kali Murray, Administrative Law Professor at Marquette University Law School; and Attorney Robert Fassbender, President and General Counsel of the Great Lakes Legal Foundation.

RSVP is required: Please use this link to RSVP.

Please join the Federalist Society on Wednesday, October 10 at 12:00-1:15 p.m. for what should be one of our largest events of the year. In Tetra Tech EC, Inc. v. Wisc. Dep’t of Revenue, 2018 WI 75 (2018), the Wisconsin Supreme Court ended its practice of deferring to administrative agencies’ conclusions of law. A panel consisting of Wisconsin Solicitor General Misha Tseytlin, Professor Kali Murray, and Attorney Robert Fassbender will discuss this monumental change in Wisconsin administrative law and its potential to lead the nation in respect for the foundational constitutional principle of the Separation of Powers. The panel will be moderated by Judge Diane Sykes of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit. A 1984 graduate of Marquette University Law School, Judge Sykes served as a Milwaukee County Trial Judge and a Wisconsin Supreme Court Justice prior to her 2004 appointment to the federal bench.

We will begin serving lunch at 12:00 p.m., and the event will begin promptly at 12:15 p.m. The event is scheduled to end at 1:15 p.m. Out of respect for our panelists and moderator, please plan on attending the entire event.

Space for this panel is limited, so we encourage you to reserve a spot soon.
