MSU Wonderlust to host an online presentation about impacts of COVID-19 on Supreme Court decisions
- Tuesday, June 16, 2020 from 10:00am to 11:30am
- Online via Webex
MSU Wonderlust, a lifelong learning organization, will host a free online presentation about the current Supreme Court term and how the COVID-19 pandemic might impact personal rights and freedoms.
Attorney Richard (Dick) Holper will present "Personal Rights After the Coronavirus and the 2019-20 U.S. Supreme Court Term" from 10:00 to 11:30 a.m. on Tuesday, June 16 via Webex.
For their current term, which began on October 1, 2019, the U.S. Supreme Court agreed to hear numerous cases dealing with individual rights. Then, the coronavirus pandemic intervened. The sessions scheduled to begin on March 23 and April 20 were cancelled, and the May 5 session was conducted remotely. This presentation will provide an overview what the Supreme Court did and not decide during their current term, and how the decisions that were made and the coronavirus will impact personal rights and freedoms.
Richard D. Holper is a graduate of Marquette University and the University of Louisville Law School. He served as an adjunct professor of law at Hamline University School of Law and at William Mitchell College of Law, both in St. Paul, Minn. He has practiced law as a trial and business lawyer in state and federal courts throughout the U.S. Holper has served on both federal and state community defender panels representing juvenile Native American clients and other clients charged with federal and state crimes, a practice requiring application of constitutional principles of due process, equal protection and the Bill of Rights.
