“RWU School of Law 2008 Commencement Speaker Linda Greenhouse Retires”

Linda Greenhouse, RWU School of Law 2008 Commencement speaker, recently retired from the New York Times as a correspondent covering the U.S. Supreme Court to write and teach at Yale Law School.  Her article in the July 13 issue of the New York Times is a reflection of her thirty years covering the U.S. Supreme Court. Another New York Times item written by Ms. Greenhouse is her selection of three defining opinions issued by the Court.  They are the 1992 opinion in Planned Parenthood v. Casey, the Bush v. Gore opinion resulting from the 2000 Presidential Election, and the opinion recently issued by the Court in the Second Amendment case District of Columbia v. Heller.
