EEOCOctober 06, 2011 Several major media outlets covering the first day of the US Supreme Court's 2011-2012 term mentioned the appearance of O'Melveny Appellate Practice partner Walter Dellinger before the Justices on behalf of fired religious school teacher Cheryl Perich in Hosanna-Tabor Lutheran Church v. EEOC. Articles published on October 5, 2011 by The National Law Journal, The New York Law Journal, The Legal Intelligencer, Law360, Thomson Reuters, Lawyers USA, among others, explained the issues involved in the case and noted the arguments Dellinger presented in defense of Perich's position.
