This week's episode is a mix of law questions, SCOTUS questions, thanksgiving questions, nonsense questions, and HYBRID questions (which is a mix of at least two) from the listeners. Happy Thanksgiving, and we'll see you next Sunday.
This week's episode covers Department of Homeland Security v. Regents of the University of California, which discusses whether or not the government's decision to wind-down DACA is constitutional, compliant with the APA, and/or just generally morally bankrupt. Law starts from the beginning.
This week's episode is slightly abbreviated, because Nazim is injured and can't laugh without screaming in pain. With that in mind, the case of Kansas v. Glover is discussed, which asks whether the police can assume the registered driver of a vehicle is the driver of that vehicle before performing a stop. It's both more and less complicated than it sounds. Law starts at (07:50), and we're covering the DACA case next week.
There are two main points in this week's episode. First, this week's episode covers the case of Ramos v. Louisiana, which asks whether or not the requirement of a unanimous jury verdict applies through the fourteenth amendment. Second, Brett and Nazim discuss whether Thanksgiving should be replaced with Italian food. Turkey Parm forever. Law starts at (05:45).
The case of Epinoza v. Montana Dept. of Revenue is a real Constitutional Main Event. In one corner, is the Establishment Clauses ban on government funding of religious private schools, and in the other is the Free Exercise Clause's argument that the State cannot ban a specific use of a scholarship. Unfortunately, the Supreme Court is the crooked pro wrestling referee. Law starts from the beginning.
