    This panel will explore the role of the federal courts in awarding injunctive and monetary relief against the federal government and its officers. Among other questions, the panel will discuss the proper scope of injunctive relief in an era of nationwide injunctions, the manner in which federal courts enforce their injunctive decrees with contempt sanctions, the well-known reluctance of the federal courts to permit monetary claims to reach the jury, and how to tell whether the system of remedies as a whole has achieved its goal of keeping government mostly within the bounds of the law most of the time.

    Business meeting for Federal Courts is scheduled on Friday, January 5 at 7:30am.

    Business meeting for Remedies will be held at program conclusion.
