On June 9, 2017, Dick Kirk will join a panel at the annual Bench & Bar Conference entitled, “So Called Judges? The Parameters of Free Speech in Criticizing Courts and Their Decisions and the Lawyer’s Role in the Process.” Other speakers will be Judge Joshua W. Martin, III (ret.). U.S. Senator Christopher A. Coons, and Delaware Law School Professor Lawrence Hamermesh. For more than 20 years, Dick has chaired the Delaware State Bar Association’s Committee on Response to Public Comment, which has taken the bar’s formal role in responding to unwarranted judicial criticism. One of the touch points of the panel will be the bar’s response and the public reaction to a criminal sentencing three years ago, and another will be the ongoing public commentary on the Transperfect litigation.
