Taking A Bite Out Of Apple

Class is back in session at the Ricochet University School of Law and Professors Epstein & Yoo have the answers to all of your burning legal questions: Is the Republicans’ Supreme Court strategy coming apart? Is the FBI asking too much of Apple? Do cameras belong in the Supreme Court? Is it time to repeal the 17th Amendment? And what was Chris Christie thinking? Come for the legal insight, stay for John’s insights into the Berkeley pot scene and Richard’s unlikely chess partner.

    The pic was a little less clear twisted onto the phone. I thought it might be Claire vamping up the Faculty Lounge.

    On the 17th Amendment question, I think repeal would be a net good for the reasons John and Richard provided, plus a couple others.

    One, it would ignite a rebirth of interest in state politics. How many people can name their state delegate and state senator? How many people even know they have a state senator?

    Second, it would create a group of powerful politicians that wouldn’t necessarily have to spend such a ridiculous amount of their time fundraising and campaigning. With a smaller and more manageable group of voting constituents, the senators might actually be able to write some good laws.

    The problem right now, however, is that repeal would mean 62 Republican Senators. Seven democrat-controlled states would have to vote for the amendment against their own interests with every republican-controlled state holding firm. That seems almost impossible.

    Not that I’d expect anything less, but the takedown of Tim Cook’s PR stunt from an actual legal perspective was masterful.
