Dinner last night as part of the Third Circuit Bar Association's Dine-Arounds: Last night at the Third Circuit's Judicial Conference in Lancaster, Pa., the judges participated in a judges-only dinner. To provide dining choices for attorneys attending the conference, the Third Circuit Bar Association organized a variety of dine-around options at local restaurants.
I was part of a small group that grabbed dinner at the Lancaster Brewing Company. Joining me for dinner were Matthew Stiegler, author of the "CA3blog"; Mary Catherine Roper, deputy legal director at the ACLU of Pennsylvania; and Maurice Harmon of Harmon & Seidman LLC. A proverbial good time was had by all.
Programming note: The Judicial Conference of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit in Lancaster, Pennsylvania -- which I have immensely enjoyed attending -- concludes midday today. As a result, regular blogging will not resume until this evening.
