  • SCOTUS & Masks: Everything You Didn't Know You Wanted to Know

    Jan 21 2022
    The Supreme Court had a short but busy week, issuing orders on the Texas abortion law and Donald Trump’s attempt to keep records from the Jan. 6 commission, while hearing arguments and also issuing rare public statements on mask-wearing at the high court. Cases and Controversies podcast hosts Kimberly Robinson and Jordan Rubin recap the “Maskgate” controversy that stemmed from an NPR report on Justice Gorsuch's alleged refusal to wear a mask during oral arguments. They also talk to Josh McDaniel, director of Harvard Law’s religious freedom clinic. The clinic filed a brief supporting the prisoner seeking resentencing in Concepcion v. United States, argued Jan. 19. Topics discussed in this episode: Masks & the justices--00:40 In re Whole Woman's Health--9:41 Trump v. Thompson--16:20 Concepcion v.

  • Rare Vaccine Arguments Kick Off New Supreme Court Year

    Jan 5 2022
    The Supreme Court starts 2022 with an ultra-rare Friday argument session over President Joe Biden’s vaccine policies as the country continues to struggle with Covid-19. The justices will hear back-to-back arguments Friday over the employer and healthcare-worker mandates, an unusual step for the sort of emergency litigation that the court generally decides with briefs alone. Cases and Controversies hosts Kimberly Robinson and Jordan Rubin give a sneak peek of the action and also preview the arguments coming up the week of Jan. 10, featuring disputes over Medicaid payments, immigrant detention, and whether tax courts can forgive late legal filings.
