Transcripts  Transcripts    

Recorded on: Aug. 3, 2015

ERWIN CHEMERINSKY: Our first session is an overview of the Supreme Court's term. By any and every measure, it was a historic term. It's historic, in terms of the legal doctrines. Some of the cases decided this year will be studied and talked about for decades to come. It's historic, in terms of its importance of defining the role of the court and the legal system in society. For decades now, there's been a debate about how the Constitution and statutes ...

Recorded on: Aug. 3, 2015

ERWIN CHEMERINSKY: I want to do two carryover things in the criminal law and procedure panel before we focus on the topic for the last session on civil rights. One is I want to be sure that there's the opportunity for some discussion of Glasser versus Gross. I think it's important, especially as the court's description of the appropriate methodology in evaluating whether a method of execution is unconstitutional. Did anyone want to speak to that before ...

He clerked on the Supreme Court for Justice Thomas, and he worked for a time in the Solicitor General's office.

Criminal Procedure

Recorded on: Aug. 3, 2015

MARTIN SCHWARTZ: In the 10 years of the Roberts court, I think it's probably fair to say that the court has been a mixed bag in criminal cases. There's definitely a conservative aspect to the court's criminal decisions, especially in federal habeas corpus cases, where the court has consistently given great deference to state court findings of fact, state court determinations of law in federal habeas corpus proceedings brought by state prisoners. And ...

ERWIN CHEMERINSKY: We have to stay on the schedule for purposes of the webcast, and I apologize that I'll then have to at times move us along, but we'll get to all the comments. Our next segment focuses on the marriage equality case, Obergefell versus Hodges. This has already been said. I don't think anyone was surprised by the result. In fact, two years ago, in the United States versus Windsor, Justice Scalia, in his dissent, said, this is going ...

BURT NEUBORNE: Good morning. Hard to believe it's 17 years since we've done this. So what I'd like to try to do this morning is summarize the first amendment cases. But over the years, I've exercised a kind of imperialism on the First Amendment and had the First Amendment mean not just the First Amendment, but all the cases dealing with democracy. Even though those cases may, in some way, really turn on equality and not democracy. But what I'd like ...

TANYA WONG: Welcome back, everyone, to our afternoon session. You will notice, if you look at your agenda, that we have allotted the entire afternoon for health insurance, public health insurance, and the Affordable Care Act. That is no accident.

But since the person who had the question isn't back from lunch yet, we'll save that for later. Because since we are live webcasted, we need to make sure that we stay on time. So with that, Curtis, do you want to introduce ...
