The ball has finally dropped! This week we got two of the biggest cases of the term: California v. Texas, the latest challenge to Obamacare, and Fulton v. City of Philadelphia, which concerns Catholic foster care services. Your hosts discuss those cases and the many others released this week. But if you thought this week was busy, hold on to your hats, because we have three opinion days next week. Zack interviews former United States Solicitor General Gregory Garre and learns what happens when you hit the Chief Justice of the United States with a tennis ball. Lastly, GianCarlo grills Zack with trivia about Indian tribes and SCOTUS.
