The sponsors appears to have gotten a fairly balanced panel. The presumptions are that Epstein will take a libertarian position and is likely to oppose at least substantial portions of the act, that Fitzgerald, as a prosecutor, will be favorable, and that Stone is a liberal who will be generally critical.

Marquette students who happen to be in the Chicago area on that date have an opportunity not only to hear a first rate discussion of the Patriot Act, but to schmooze with some top people in the Chicago legal community.
