Yesterday, ALA Vice President Michael Scodro appeared on Chicago Tonight to discuss the oral arguments before the United States Supreme Court on the right of same-sex couples to marry. Scodro, who served as a law clerk to Justice Sandra Day O'Connor and previously served as Illinois Solicitor General, was joined by ALA member Carolyn Shapiro, who succeeded Scodro as Solicitor General and also served as a law clerk on the High Court. (Solicitor General Shapiro was the featured speaker at a recent ALA luncheon.) Two other former United States Supreme Court law clerks joined Scodro and Solicitor General Shapiro on the panel.
