In this episode, GianCarlo and Amy discuss the dueling opinions in the case denying emergency relief to churches challenging California’s Covid-19 restrictions. They also breakdown the five opinions the Court issued this week, which cover ERISA standing, foreign arbitral awards, the Puerto Rico Oversight Board, successive habeas petitions, and appellate review in the context of the Convention Against Torture. What a week! Amy also interviews former C.J. Rehnquist clerk and superstar securities lawyer, Matthew Martens, and tries to stump him with Rehnquist related trivia. Is she successful? Tune in to find out!
