Last Thursday, May 20, the House Judiciary Committee’s Subcommittee on Commercial and Administrative Law held an oversight hearing on ACUS. The two panels of witnesses included Justices Breyer and Scalia, as well as two former Admin Law Section Chairs (Paul Verkuil, the new ACUS Chairman, and Sally Katzen of the Podesta Group), Jeffrey Lubbers of American University’s Washington College of Law, and Curtis Copeland of the Congressional Research Service. Copies of the witnesses’ prepared statements are available on the Committee’s website. In addition, Thomas Susman, Director of the ABA Governmental Affairs Office, submitted for the record a letter expressing support for ACUS and attaching an August 2009 list of recommended study topics for ACUS.
