Associate Justice John Paul Stevens made opening remarks at the annual dinner of the Seventh Circuit Judicial Conference. He took the opportunity to straighten out the historical record of the change from “Mister Justice” and “Madame Justice” to a non-sexist address of “Justice” at the Supreme Court. He also affirmed the questioned correctness of his memory of a home run by Babe Ruth. After he gave his remarks, the lawyers and judges of the 7th Circuit Bar Association presented Justice Stevens with a Chicago Cubs jacket, which he tried on. Then the main speaker, Solicitor General Kagan, spoke on his life and legacy.
This annual dinner of the Seventh Circuit Bar Association at the Seventh Circuit Judicial Conference was held Monday, May 3, 2010, at the InterContinental Hotel in Chicago. close
