Alan Dershowitz To Sign His New Book At Annual Seminar Luncheon

One of America’s most celebrated lawyers and a Democrat explains why impeachment proceedings would be a bad idea for America―and only intensify the larger problem with our democracy.

In the 2018 New York Times bestseller The Case Against Impeaching Trump, Alan Dershowitz lamented how American political discourse has devolved into hypocrisy and the criminalization of political differences in the rush to impeach President Donald Trump. Arguments to impeach Trump failed Dershowitz’s “shoe on the other foot test,” or his political golden rule: Democrats must do unto Republicans what they would have Republicans do unto them, and vice versa.

Since then, we’ve only become more divided―and the impeachment power wielded by the new Democratic majority in the House of Representative threatens to further polarize the country.

The Case Against the Democratic House Impeaching Trump includes and expands upon Dershowitz’s 2018 book. It puts recent political events―including the hyper-partisan Kavanaugh hearings, the unrestrained power of the Mueller investigation, and the generally intolerant current political discourse―into context. American democracy, Dershowitz argues, is suffering from political hypocrisy. And two years of impeachment proceedings brought by the House―and the media circus that would undoubtedly surround them―is clearly not the answer. This book is Alan Dershowitz’s plea for honest dialogue―for arguments that would be made even if the shoe was on the other foot.

Hardcover books will be available for sale for $15. Bring cash, check or credit card. Professor Dershowitz will be signing books immediately after the luncheon on Friday, February 1.

What To Expect At This Year’s Annual Seminar

By Chris Faenza, President ASCDC

The Annual Seminar is our biggest event of the year, where there will be great opportunities to network with fellow civil defense lawyers, guests from both the insurance world and private business, current and retired judges, as well as many exhibitors and sponsors who will show you the latest products and services to help you in your practice. There will be topical and informative educational programs, as well as the ever-popular cocktail reception and a great keynote speaker!

This year, we are returning to the JW Marriott at LA Live, which is an exciting venue with many choices for dining, entertainment, and even “star” gazing. Should you choose to sample the entertainment at Staples Center, some 100 yards from the JW Marriott, you can “Feel the Love Tonight” with Sir Elton John on January 30th.

Can’t decide whether you want to see the Lakers with King James, or the LA Clippers? No need to decide, you can see them both on Thursday, January 31st (after the cocktail reception, of course). If you choose neither, rest assured that you can meet our own All-Stars and defense bar Royalty at the educational seminars. To add to your enjoyment of the event, book a room at the JW Marriott through the reserved room block for ASCDC.
