University of California law student Carrie Skolnick places a call to Sen. Dianne Feinstein's office Wednesday from the Boalt Law School lobby. Alliance for Justice partnered with Boalt Law Students Against Alito to encourage students and professors to call the offices of senators Feinstein and Boxer to urge them to vote against Judge Samuel Alito’s nomination for the Supreme Court and to not rule out the possibility of a filibuster. Calling the event a “Reverse Bakesale,” the group gave away milk and cookies to students in exchange for their support and participation.n
