JOIN US ON FOR AN ONLINE PRESENTATION ON TUESDAY, JUNE 23, 2020, AT 7:15 P.M.

FOR A TALK BY MARK McGUIRE ON: 
THE LIMITS OF EXECUTIVE DISCRETION IN TIMES OF CRISIS

COVID-19 may have interrupted our monthly in-person meetings; but it will not prevent us from hearing a wonderful presentation this month!

The Civil War brought about a time of crisis which tested the limits of the President’s executive powers.  This talk will lay out the unusual circumstances which prompted President Lincoln to suspend the writ of habeas corpus.  It will examine the authority under the Constitution, viewed through the lens of the 1861 case, Ex Parte Merryman.  Can laws be ignored to preserve the Union?  Our speaker will discuss Lincoln’s actions, and those taken by subsequent U.S. Presidents Roosevelt, Truman and Trump. 

This month’s speaker is Mark H. McGuire, an associate with the law firm of Fullerton, Lehman, Schaefer and Dominick, LLP.  He focuses his practice areas on trust and estate litigation, probate conservatorship and guardianship law.  He received his JD from Western State University College of Law, and earned his B.A. in Philosophy and a minor in Psychology from Sonoma State University.

He presented this talk as one of the featured speakers at February’s Southwest Civil War Symposium in Redlands.
