Week after next I will be presenting a paper Trial Procedure in Federal Court at the annual State Bar Federal Court Practice seminar. The seminar will be in its traditional home in Dallas, Cityplace Events Center on May 24, 2013. As readers know, I have presented on motion practice for several years now, but I ask to fleet up to trial procedure after running into some interesting issues with the trials we have had in recent years.
Also at the table with me will be U.S. Magistrate Judge Roy S. Payne of Marshall, who will be providing attendees with his insights from almost 20 years on the federal bench, as well his his experiences trying cases as a practitioner.
The program will have numerous panels and individual presentations of interest to practitioners in federal court, including by Judge Reed O'Connor of the Northern District of Texas on pleadings, and will feature a lunch judges panel with Judge Payne and district judges Kathleen Cardone from El Paso, Diana Saldana of Laredo, and Jorge Solis of Dallas. More information on the seminar is available here, and you can register here or by calling the State Bar up directly at 800-204-222, extension 1574.
