Just Doing the Job They Were Put on the Court to Do

Crushing, predictable decisions from SCOTUS at the dawn of an alarming new era.


Episode Notes

Well it happened, Roe v. Wade has been swept away and Dahlia Lithwick is joined by Mary Ziegler, a law professor at the University of California, Davis, and the author of Dollars for Life: The Anti-Abortion Movement and the Fall of the Republican Establishment.

And then we turn to the other blockbuster decision this week, in New York State Rifle and Pistol Association v. Bruen. Dahlia talks to Joseph Blotcher of the Duke Center for Firearms Law.

In this week’s Amicus Plus segment, Dahlia and Slate’s Mark Joseph Stern process more of the fallout from Dobbs and Bruen, and also examine the other blockbuster-in-normal-times case that almost escaped notice.
