This week's episode covers PTO v. Booking.com, a case that not only discusses the application of "generic" terms to websites, but also continues are on-going efforts of covering the least-stressful cases as possible. Enjoy this one with a cup of chamomile tea. Law starts at (07:30).
Turns out we couldn't quit you that easily. This week covers the recent decision in Kahler v. Kansas, which is as much about State's rights and Due Process as it is about dogs who want you to murder people. Law starts at (07:35).
This week's episode accomplishes two things. First, your boys cover the Delaware-centric case of Carney v. Adams, which asks why a clearly unconstitutional way to appoint judges took this long to fix. Second, your main dudes discuss pie (a lot), despotism, cartoons, and other topics to help lighten the mood. Law starts at (12:30). Also, we are going to a less-regular schedule, but we are not stopping the podcast, so don't panic if we're not here next week.
This week's episode covers June Medical Services v. Russo, which addresses the value of precedent and third party standing in abortion cases by essentially re-litigating the Whole Women's Health case from a few years ago. Law starts at (04:02).
Ok, here's the situation. Brett went away on a weekend's vacation, so the first half of this is talking about the Star Wars Theme Park at Disney World. Around the (15:00) mark, the episode turns to Barton v. Barr and Kansas v. Garcia, which both discuss judicial interpretation of immigration statutes. This one is heavy on nonsense, so we'll tighten things up next week.
This week's episode covers Justice Sotomayor's dissent in Wolf v. Cook County, which generally discusses injunctions, the power of judicial review and the current Court's approach to the current Administration. The law starts from the beginning and generally stays on topic until the end, when we start talking about Burger King and the Masked Singer.
The podcast continues Confusing Statute Month, as Brett and Nazim discuss the Clear Water Act through the case of City of Maui v. Hawaii Wildlife Fund. This case covers exciting things like the definition of the word "from", so there's a lot of tangents. To that point, the law starts at (09:27).
This week's episode brings back another dysfunctional reoccurring guest, the Affordable Care Act, through the case of Land of Lincoln Mutual Health Insurance Co. v. United States, which asks whether or the not the government can refuse to pay insurers statutory payments. It's a doozy. The law starts from the beginning, but it's subject to constant interruptions.
This week's episode involves reoccurring guest the Armed Career Criminals Act, as Brett and Nazim discuss Shular v. U.S., which asks whether a categorical approach to drug crimes under the ACCA has officially renders this statute a dumpster fire, legally speaking. Law starts at (06:17).
This week's episode re-visits the procedural nuances of the death penalty, by covering McKinney v. Arizona, which essentially asks whether Death Penalty review cases are stuck back in time (like Back to the Future) or can go forward in time (like Back to the Future 2). Law starts at (05:47).
That's right, folks. To celebrate New Jersey's most notorious traffic scandal, Nazim no longer sounds like hes recording from the inside of a trash can. This week's episode covers BRIDGE-GATE(!!), i.e. Kelly v. U.S., which asks whether or not a nefarious government traffic scheme constitutes fraud in the legal sense of the word. Law starts at (06:55).
