In this episode, we present the first edition of our Supreme Court Hall of Shame, highlighting some of the worst legal reasoning in American history – first up is National Federation of Independent Business v. Sebelius.
We also examine two enormously important decisions that were handed down by the Court this week, with massive impacts on gun rights and abortion (and also completely changing our original plans for this episode), as well as take a deep dive into the concept of “substantive due process.”
All this, plus the economics of being an expert witness on “being of average intelligence” and why you shouldn’t bring your drugs with you to your drug trial.
