Judging Amy

It’s out of the frying pan and into the fire, as professors Richard Epstein and John Yoo take us from the just-concluded drama of the Amy Coney Barrett hearings to the just-emerging drama over the Supreme Court’s role in the 2020 election. Along the way they consider how seriously we should take the court-packing threat; whether super-precedents are actually a thing; if Roe v. Wade and the ACA are actually in danger with a Justice Barrett on the court; and what the newest Supreme Court justice’s judicial blindspot is most likely to be. Then it’s on to the Supreme Court’s unpredictable role in the 2020 presidential election. Will Chief Justice Roberts surprise us all again? Do any of the lessons of Bush v. Gore apply this year? And does ACB have a duty to recuse herself? Come for the top-shelf legal analysis, stay for Professor Epstein posing a grammar brainteaser for the ages.

    We ran short on time — you may have heard Richard eject in the final moments of the podcast. But it was part of the pre-show chatter. I sent John this:

    This was his response:

    While the country is divided on Roe v. Wade, elite opinion is not — and it appears Chief Justice Roberts thinks keeping elite opinion sweet is essential to the Court’s future.

    Excellent podcast!
