Bankruptcy judges asking $100 to cover Kagan talk

Legal Expert News Posted on

The national organization of bankruptcy judges says reporters are welcome to cover Supreme Court Justice Elena Kagan's talk at its convention in mid-October, if they pay $100.

Groups sometimes close their events to the press or allow reporters in with restrictions on the use of cameras and audio recorders. But it's very unusual to charge the news media merely to attend.

Kagan is scheduled to speak Oct. 15, at the end of the four-day conference in Tampa, Fla. She did not immediately comment on the fee arrangement.

Christine Molick, executive director of the National Conference of Bankruptcy Judges, says the $100 fee is greatly reduced from what other attendees must pay. Registration fees for some participants top $900, according to the organization's website.
