GianCarlo is back, the Court is hearing arguments again, and free speech is on the docket. Your hosts discuss a newly granted case that will decide whether the Biden Administration’s coordination with social media companies to censor what it labeled misinformation violates the First Amendment. They then unpack the oral arguments in two more free speech cases and a case that challenges civil asset forfeiture procedures. In lieu of an interview, your hosts replay the annual Joseph Story lecture, which Judge James Ho delivered last week. And finally, with an assist from artificial intelligence, GianCarlo tests how well Zack can identify Justices’ writing styles.
