Late Jenner & Block Partner’s SCOTUS Arguments Are Basis of Arguendo Play

As covered in Tony Mauro's April 1 National Law Journal article, titled “Play Brings Supreme Court Drama to the Masses,” late Jenner & Block partner and legendary Supreme Court advocate Bruce Ennis Jr. continues to strike a chord with the Washington legal community as Arguendo debuts at the Woolly Mammoth Theatre in Washington,D.C.  The play’s script is drawn verbatim from a 1991 Supreme Court argument in Barnes v. Glen Theatre, a dispute over nude dancing that Bruce argued on behalf of the nude dancers. 

Performances run through the end of April.  Jenner & Block Partner Paul M. Smith will lead an after-performance discussion on Sunday, April 13.
