| SOUTH DAKOTAN LAWYER

BRIEFS

The OUTlaws hosted Professor

Ryan Scott in March for the third

annual installment of the Lavender

Lecture. Scott, from the Indiana

University’s Maurer School of Law

in Bloomington, focused on the

unsuccessful uses of the “gay/trans”

panic defense and discussed ways a

recent ABA resolution might lessen

the effectiveness and use of the

defense. Two of the panels focused on

aspects of the marriage equality debate

while the third was specifically on

transgender issues.

The fourth Lavender Lecture made

the move from spring to fall and

hosted Bridget Wilson, a San Diego

attorney, on Oct. 19. Wilson spoke

on the implementation and repeal

of “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell.” Wilson,

who practices military law, is a

graduate of Creighton University and

the University of San Diego School

of Law. A veteran of the enlisted

ranks of the U.S. Army Reserve, she

served as a judge advocate with the

California State Military Reserve for

a decade. She has taught Military

Justice as an adjunct faculty member

at Thomas Jefferson School of Law.

The OUTlaws presented this lecture

with co-sponsorship from the Veteran’s

Legal Education Group.

The South Dakota Supreme Court held session for three days at USD School of Law Oct. 5-7. The justices

heard nine oral arguments during their sessions, giving law students an incredible learning opportunity

to see the state’s highest court in action. The School of Law thanks the Court for continuing to visit the

law school on a regular basis.
