An Elegy for the Voting Rights Act

Democracy is not what this Supreme Court is all about.


Episode Notes

A Supreme Court brain trust gathers for this year’s Amicus Breakfast Table. Dahlia Lithwick is joined by Melissa Murray, professor at NYU School of Law and co-host of the podcast Strict Scrutiny; Jeffrey Fisher, Stanford Law School professor and co-director of Stanford’s Supreme Court Litigation clinic; Perry Grossman, senior staff attorney at the New York Civil Liberties Union’s Voting Rights Project; and of course, Slate’s own Mark Joseph Stern. Together, they analyze the shape of the court and the ramification of its decisions at the end of the 2020 term.

Podcast production by Sara Burningham.

Note: The comments made by Perry Grossman express Grossman’s personal views and are not necessarily those of the NYCLU or ACLU.
