LBB Presents ONLINE: Richard J. Lazarus – Rule of Five
Left Bank Books and KDHX Earthworms welcomes law professor and author Richard J. Lazarus, who will discuss his new book, “The Rule of Five: Making Climate History at the Supreme Court,” on Facebook Live at 7pm CST on July 22. Lazarus will be in conversation with KDHX Earthworms’ host Jean Ponzi. Join us on our Facebook Page and order a copy of “The Rule of Five” from Left Bank Books. The gripping inside story of how an unlikely team of lawyers and climate activists overcame conservative opposition–and their own divisions–to win the most important environmental case ever brought before the Supreme Court. When the Supreme Court announced its ruling in Massachusetts v. EPA, the decision was immediately hailed as a landmark. But this was the farthest thing from anyone’s mind when Joe Mendelson, an idealistic lawyer working on a shoestring budget for an environmental organization no one had heard of, decided to press his quixotic case.
