Jeffrey Toobin appears in sessions on these topics
Jeffrey Toobin has been a staff writer at The New Yorker since 1993 and the senior legal analyst for CNN since 2002. Previously, he worked for ABC News, and, in 2000, received an Emmy Award for his coverage of the Elián González case. For the magazine, he has written Profiles of the Supreme Court Justices Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Stephen Breyer, Anthony Kennedy, Clarence Thomas, and Chief Justice John G. Roberts, as well as articles on nearly every major legal controversy and trial of the past two decades.
He was the first to interview Martha Stewart about her investigation for insider trading, and the first to disclose the plans of O. J. Simpson's defense team to accuse Mark Fuhrman of planting evidence and to play "the race card." Before joining the magazine, he served as an Assistant United States Attorney in Brooklyn and an associate counsel in the Office of Independent Counsel Lawrence E. Walsh.
His books include "Opening Arguments," "The Nine: Inside the Secret World of the Supreme Court," "Too Close to Call: The Thirty-Six-Day Battle to Decide the 2000 Election," "A Vast Conspiracy: The Real Story of the Sex Scandal That Nearly Brought Down a President," and, most recently, "The Oath: The Obama White House and the Supreme Court."
