Back to the Future

It’s Back To The Future day on Law Talk and Professors Epstein and Yoo are in postseason form as we open up the faculty lounge for our October session. In this installment: Can the House really pick a non-member as Speaker? Is a new case out of Wisconsin going to upend gun law? Has China fallen afoul of international law with its claims to offshore islands? And have we reached peak fantasy football? 

All that plus the annual calling to account for our World Series predictions. This year’s winner is a real Cinderella story.

OUTATIME, EJHill.

    Dang! I thought this episode would focus on the intricacies of Time Travel Law. Especially on using insider information for sports betting found in a sports almanac from the future. (Can you even get a sports almanac in print these days?)

    First month being a subscriber. I don’t know if we are allowed to ask question that may have not been talked about in the podcast, but I have a question and was wondering if someone could take a look.

    When places such as bakers are taken to court for discrimination (not wanting to make a cake for a same sex couple) the argument hinges on “Freedom of religion” as to why the bakers do not want to make the cake. I was wondering why “Freedom of Association” is not used as a defense for the bakers or other people?

    Thanks and I enjoy this podcast greatly.

    Knute,

    Welcome to Ricochet. I don’t know that we’ll be getting back to that question anytime soon, but the good news is that we’ve dealt with it extensively in past issues of the show. See this episode, for instance, for an extended discussion on the Religious Freedom Restoration Act.

    I love the weekly and daily podcasts, but the golden few days of the month is when I get to listen to Law Talk and GLOP! Thanks.

    So Richard says if we can’t get rid of all guns we need to consider the ratio of “good guns to bad guns.” So is the solution to mass shooting to give tax incentives to those who have concealed (or open carry soon in Texas) hand gun license and carry often?

    Maybe tax incentive could require additional training, checks, etc? Seems reasonable to me. Thanks, Richard!
