Following presentation of the tape of the argument he made in Mallory v. United States before the U.S. Supreme Court, District Judge William B. Bryant talked about his experiences in preparing for the argument and in its presentation.

District Judge Louis Oberdorfer, acting as interlocutor, described the climate in the country at the time of Mallory and questioned Judge Bryant about this historic case.

About 100 people attended the dialogue, which was held in Judge Bryant’s courtroom in late April 2004.
