This episode has a little bit of everything: orders, arguments, opinions, and SCOTUS gossip. Zack and GianCarlo discuss this week’s noteworthy orders, including the Court’s decision not to block the release of certain documents over which former president Trump claimed executive privilege. They also look at this week’s oral arguments, GianCarlo explains this week’s one opinion, and Zack interviews Sixth Circuit Judge John Nalbandian. On the gossip front, your hosts explain how NPR correspondent Nina Totenberg landed in hot water by reporting some anonymously sourced Supreme Court gossip that three justices said was false. With leaks (false or otherwise) on the docket, Zack grilled GianCarlo with trivia from other famous inside scoops about the Court.
