In brief: David Cohen is the best at summarizing decisions and case history, offering implications to marginalized communities and social justice in general, offering choice quotes from great and awful decisions/dissents, and — usually — calming down my Chicken Little act. This time, my friend could only temper my panic.
I promise you’ll laugh despite the bad news and we do offer a slim, but possible, way to hold up this next SCOTUS confirmation. We also discuss the current state of state TRAP law challenges, which are safe and which are still/now up in the air and give Justice Kennedy the retirement send off he so deserves.
