Law Professor to Testify Before Congress About China
Thomas Horton, a former lead trial attorney at the U.S. Department of Justice and now a professor and Heidepriem Trial Advocacy Fellow at the USD School of Law, is scheduled to appear at 4 p.m. EDT Tuesday, June 7, before the House Subcommittee on Regulatory Reform, Commercial and Antitrust Law.
“Based on my extensive prior scholarship and teaching in China, I plan to present a balanced view of the myriad complex issues arising from China’s ongoing enforcement of its anti-monopoly laws against American companies, which emphasizes China’s historical perspectives and Confucian values,” Horton said.
Others slated to appear with him include Maureen Ohlhausen, commissioner with the Federal Trade Commission; Mark Cohen, senior counsel with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office; and Sean Heather, vice president for the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Center for Global Regulatory Cooperation.
Horton will prepare a written statement and also have five minutes to give verbal testimony during the hearing. He’ll also answer questions from the panel.
