James A. Thomas Distinguished Professor of Law Chris Sagers was one of 95 community leaders from 27 states called to the White House on May 4th for a summit on the looming judicial vacancy crisis.  The event was convened by the White House Counsel’s Office in collaboration with more than two dozen public interest advocacy organizations, including the National Council of Jewish Women, the Bazelon Center for Mental Health Law the American Constitution Society, the Alliance for Justice People for the American Way, and the Center for American Progress.  The event began with a morning of White House briefings by Attorney General Eric Holder, White House Counsel Kathy Ruemmler, and officials of the White House Office of General Counsel, Office of Legislative Affairs, and Office of Public Engagement.  Attendees at the summit spent the rest of the day in meetings with Members of the Senate and their staff, and Professor Sagers joined the Ohio delegation in meetings with staff of Senators Brown and Portman.  Attendees also met with Jeremy Paris, Senate Judiciary counsel, and Serena Hoy, Chief Counsel to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid.
