Well, Ninth Circuit and O’Scannlain groupies, we’ve come to the end of the road. This is our last batch of pictures from our delightful weekend in Portland, Oregon, attending DFOpalooza.
After the Friday night reception at the Pioneer Courthouse, and the Saturday night dinner at the Town Club, the weekend concluded with a farewell brunch at the O’Scannlain residence. The weather couldn’t have been better, and many guests sat out on the expansive judicial patio, where they enjoyed wonderful brunch fare (including an amazing artichoke-and-chicken dish that was nothing short of a revelation).
More pictures, after the jump.

Jonathan Cohn (at left), Deputy Assistant Attorney General in the Justice Department’s Civil Divison, requests guidance from Ryan Bounds, Assistant Attorney General of the DOJ’s Office of Sartorial Counsel (OSC). The OSC issues the following opinion:

“The blue blazer, blue shirt, and tan slacks ensemble is a hopeless clothing cliché. If you insist on wearing a blue blazer with a blue dress shirt, you can salvage the look only with a pair of chocolate-brown jeans by Helmut Lang.”
