The Wall Street Journal reporters and authors Melissa Korn and Jennifer Levitz are the featured speakers for “A Supreme Evening 2023” on Jan. 26 at the FSU Dunlap Champions Club at Doak Campbell Stadium in Tallahassee.
Korn and Levitz co-authored “Unacceptable: Privilege, Deceit & the Making of the College Admissions Scandal” covering the investigation that exposed malfeasance in the most extensive college admissions scandal prosecuted by the U.S. Department of Justice, “Operation Varsity Blues.”
The keynote presentation will include details of the investigation and legal battle that spanned the country and accounts of the high-profile arrests and courtroom proceedings.
“Melissa Korn and Jennifer Levitz, who covered all 51 criminal prosecutions in federal court, will make this rare in-person presentation about their experiences observing the families, prosecutors, defense counsel and the two federal judges. They will also provide insight into their observations of the judicial process,” Hank Coxe, historical society trustee, said in a news release.
The annual dinner includes the State of the Court presentation by state Supreme Court Chief Justice Carlos Muñiz and a welcome to Justice Renatha Francis, who joined the court in August.
