Barry (1986-1989)

1. What does this past Kansas debater look like now?

2. What does this ex-debater now do for a living?

Barry is a litigator with Spencer Fane in Kansas City.

3. Has this former debater been "in the news"?

Well, Barry followed up this article in the Journal of the Missouri Bar with this exciting conclusion. I'm not sure I fully understand the "finality trap," but I think I know why it was sufficiently important to merit serialization:
All litigators with appeals in federal courts now face an uncertainty that should not, and need not, exist. The trap threatens uninformed litigators with malpractice.
Notice the dirty word?

4. What else do we know?

People remember his debate career fondly.
