    Donald Trump and the Colorado Ballot

    Donald Trump and the Colorado Ballot

    This week's episode covers Trump v. Anderson, which asks whether Colorado can prevent Donald Trump from being on the Presidential ballot due to the 14th Amendment.  Considering how insane this case is, your boys discuss the lower decision to determine how the Supreme Court will likely reverse this, while discussing history, January 6th, and Colorado statutes.  Law starts from the beginning.

    The Third Wrongest Decision of the 2023 Term

    The Third Wrongest Decision of the 2023 Term

    Brett and Nazim are back to discuss the case of Students for Fair Admissions v. North Carolina/Harvard, in which the Supreme Court struck down affirmative action programs in school admissions.  The Law starts at (8:20), and Nazim's sound is wonky for like three minutes at the start.  We are sorry, but we missed you if that makes up for it.

    The Two Wrongest Decisions of the 2023 Term

    The Two Wrongest Decisions of the 2023 Term

    Opinionpalooza

    Opinionpalooza

    This week's episode covers big opinions from the past few weeks, including Twitter v. Taamneh (whether social media is civilly liable for terrorism), Sackett v.

Goldsmith (does fair use consider artistic merit or commercial usage).  Law starts at (4:40).

    Down Goes the Internet

    Down Goes the Internet

    This week's episode covers two cases, Gonzales v. Google and Twitter v. Taamneh, which appear to cover broad, important issues at first (the recruitment of terrorism on the internet), but seem more likely to affect narrow, trivial issues later on (how Youtube recommends videos for you).  This episode also talks voting, Legend of Zelda and Shake Shack's Tiramisu Milk Shake.  Law starts at (5:30), but the milkshake gets reference all the way through, my dog.
