Skinner v. Switzer: Arguments for Respondent

Edward C. Dawson presents the arguments for the respondent. Mr. Dawson is a Partner at Yetter Coleman LLP. Note: We had also planned (and hoped) to have counsel for petitioner Henry Skinner participate in the podcast, but at the last minute he was unable to do so. Thus, unlike earlier podcasts, this podcast features only counsel for the respondent, which we are posting without regard to her likelihood of success in the case.
