San Diego (August 12, 2015) ­— The San Diego Lawyers Chapter of the Federalist Society is hosting a panel discussion focusing on the legal and policy issues facing the Chargers stadium issue on Wednesday, August 12 at 6:30 p.m. at McGregor’s Grill & Ale House in Mission Valley.

Confirmed speakers for the panel—titled “The Chargers Stadium Dilemma”—include Cory Briggs, Bob Gaglione, Tony Manolatos and Richard Rider. Dan Sileo will moderate.  The event was timed to follow the City of San Diego’s release of the draft Environmental Impact Report and the NFL owners meeting in Chicago to discuss the issue.

“The Federalist Society is pleased to offer a platform for experts to discuss these important legal and policy issues,” said chapter president Ryan T. Darby.  “The San Diego community has a lot of questions, and this panel will offer some answers.”

Expected topics include CEQA compliance, taxpayer benefits, and the ramifications of the Environmental Impact Report draft and NFL owners meeting.

“The new stadium for the San Diego Chargers has dominated the local news this summer and may be the sports story of the year in America’s Finest City,” said attorney Bob Gaglione.  “This program features speakers who are involved in the legal, municipal and tax aspects of this developing news who will offer differing perspectives on these issues.  This will undoubtedly be an interesting and lively discussion!”

The doors open at 6 p.m., and the panel discussion will commence at 6:30 p.m.  McGregor’s is located at 10475 San Diego Mission Road, San Diego, California 92108.  Attendees must be at least 21 years old to attend this program at McGregor’s.
