SSRN Paper by Polly Price

In April 2009, Prometheus Books released the biography, Judge Richard S. Arnold: A Legacy of Justice on the Federal Bench, written by the Judge's former law clerk and Emory Law School Professor Polly Price. In honor of its publication, the Court of Appeals Branch of the Eighth Circuit Historical Society and the Eighth Circuit Bar Association collaborated on an event featuring the author.

Professor Price addressed the Eighth Circuit bench and bar on September 21, 2009 in St. Louis' Thomas F. Eagleton U.S. Courthouse during the Court of Appeals' court week. In her fascinating presentation, Professor Price related stories about Judge Arnold that were omitted from the final version of the book.
