2017 Supreme Court Wrap-up Call

July 27, 2017

 

Time: 7–8 p.m. ET

Review the real-world consequences of several judicial decisions made by the U.S. Supreme Court during the October 2016 term.

  • A church, daycare with a playground, government program and the first amendment, come hear what happens when they collide as we discuss Trinity Lutheran Church of Columbia v. Come.
  • Hidden underneath all that legal stuff is a claim of sex discrimination. Let’s discuss McLane Co Inc. v. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission.
  • Can you imagine being called to serve on a jury and deliberating with an inebriated juror . . . or worse?  Let’s discuss Miguel Angel Pena-Rodriguez v. Colorado.
