Listen gang, it's a holiday. Although this episode covers two decisions (Herrera v. Wyoming & Washing State Licensing Department v. Cougar Den), this episode has all the seriousness of an afternoon BBQ where Brett and Nazim cumulatively eat nine hotdogs. Come for the insight on meaningless cases, stay for Brett's half-baked ideas (there are about 3). Law starts at (09:47).
It's finally decision season, and Brett and Nazim are covering two cases with broader implications for the future. First is Apple v. Pepper, which deals with conservative and evolutionary approaches to anti-trust common law, and the second is Franchise Tax Board v. Hyatt, which deals with whether or not a controversial Constitutional interpretation should be overruled. Law starts at (09:09).
The dreaded BORING TERM strikes again, as Brett and Nazim take a stab at covering bankruptcy law. This episode discusses general bankruptcy practice withing the scope of Taggart v. Lorenzen, which asks whether a creditor who violates the automatic stay has a mistake of law defense. Pay your bills! The Law starts at (05:27).
Brett and Nazim are on their best behavior this week, as the episode deals with three LGBT cases that the Supreme Court decided to hear for next term. The main case R.G. & G.R. Funeral Homes v. EEOC, deals with the interpretation of Title VII regarding sex discrimination, and the episode serves as a primer to more detailed discussion next term. The law starts from the very beginning, inappropriate jokes are bleeped out, and the Avengers talk is at an all-time low. Just try not to get to used to it.
