On Constitution Day, September 17, the Republican Liberty Caucus of Central East Florida organized a dinner with Cato Institute Chairman and legal scholar Robert A. Levy (who is also a RLC member). The Central East Florida chapter of the RLC is based in the Melbourne area. Over 100 guests attended the event.
Dr. Levy joined the Cato Institute as senior fellow in constitutional studies in 1997 after 25 years in business. He also sits on boards of the Institute for Justice, the Federalist Society, and the George Mason University School of Law. He founded CDA Investment Technologies, a major provider of financial information and software, and was its CEO until 1991. From 1997 until 2004, Levy was an adjunct professor of law at Georgetown University. He has written numerous articles on investments, law, and public policy. Levy received his Ph.D. in business from the American University and his J.D. degree from the George Mason University School of Law.
Most recently, Dr. Levy helped bring the case Heller v. DC to the Supreme Court, where the Court ruled in favor of an individual right to keep and bear arms. The case was brought about by Republican Liberty Caucus member Richard Heller, who has previously addressed RLC members.
The Republican Liberty Caucus was very honored to host Dr. Levy. Below are some photos from the great event. Special thanks to Matthew Nye for organizing it.
