In October 1999, attorney Joe Mendelson delivered a petition to the Environmental Protection Agency asking it to restrict greenhouse gas emissions from new cars. In The Rule of Five, Richard J. Lazarus tells the story of how an unlikely team of lawyers and activists overcame opposition―and their own divisions―to win the most important environmental case ever brought before the Supreme Court. 

A book signing follows the program.
