The Court had a calm and peaceful week taking no new cases and issuing three unanimous opinions in fairly technical cases. Your hosts explain all of those opinions, and then Zack has a fascinating discussion with Judge Douglas Ginsburg about his career, clerking for Justice Thurgood Marshall, and why he felt the need to escape the Harvard faculty even though he had just received tenure. Zack then grills GianCarlo about the inner workings of The Food Court–the Supreme Court’s cafeteria. Tune in to find out which Justice to blame if you don’t like the food!
