Marietta Robinson will be talking about her experiences as an accomplished trial attorney and her path to public service. During her years in practice, she has worked for a number of law firms and represented both plaintiffs and defendants. Most recently, she has specialized in medical malpractice. She served eight years as a federally appointed trustee of the Dalkon Shield Trust, which paid out $2.5 billion to women who had used the Dalkon Shield contraceptive. She lost her bid as the Democratic nominee for the Michigan Supreme Court in 2000 and tried to get the nomination again in 2002 but dropped her bid before the convention. She is now waiting for confirmation to serve as commissioner of the Consumer Product Safety Commission. She will be speaking to us about her experiences. Lunch will be served.
