[5/9/13: Note: This story has been corrected to note that the details of Mary Beth’s participation at this event are still being worked out.  The evening, which begins at 6 p.m., will be memorable and we hope to see many of our DC friends there!]

The Tinker Tour bus will stop in Washington, DC, on Nov. 6 where Mary Beth has been invited to the U.S. Supreme Court where her and her brother John’s participation in the landmark case bearing their names will be discussed as part of a lecture series hosted by the U.S. Supreme Court Historical Society.

2013 marks the 44th anniversary of Tinker v. Des Moines School District.

(Of course, we still need a bus.)

Attorney Kelly Shackelford, President and CEO of the Liberty Institute, who has argued before the United States Supreme Court and testified before the U.S. House and Senate on constitutional issues will lead the discussion.

Event Information:

2013 marks the 20th Anniversary of the Leon Silverman Lecture Series.   The series will focus on Litigants in Landmark 20th Century Cases.  Reservations are required to gain entry and seating is limited.

These events will be held at the Supreme Court of the United States, One First Street NE, Washington, DC. Due to security requirements, a government-issued photo identification such as a driver’s license or passport must be presented for admittance to each of the lectures.
