>>CEI Dinner 2010
CEI’s 2010 dinner took place last week. The evening was a great success, earning rave reviews from attendees. The dinner featured as Master of Ceremonies Tom Donlan of Barron’s, and a keynote address from the Honorable Alex Kozinski, Chief Judge of the U.S. Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals. Judge Kozinski managed to make a lecture on antitrust law entertaining! CEI presented the 2010 Julian Simon Memorial Award to noted statisticians Stephen McIntyre and Ross McKitrick for their work in debunking the infamous “hockey stick” climate graph. Read coverage (and see photos) of our dinner from Jennifer Harper in The Washington Times, Jim Antle in The American Spectator, and David Lat in Above the Law. To all our sponsors and guests, thank you for coming and making it a great event – we’ll see you all in 2011!
