Highlights viewers can expect from this program include:
- Professor Ric Simmons discussing Thompson v. Clark which considers whether people may sue a police officer for instigating baseless criminal charges against them once those charges are dropped – or whether, instead, victims may sue only if the charges are dismissed in a manner that somehow demonstrates their innocence.
- Professor Steve Huefner discussing Carson v. Makin that questions whether a state violates the religion clauses or equal protection clause of the Constitution by prohibiting students participating in an otherwise generally available student-aid program from choosing to use their aid to attend schools that provide religious, or “sectarian,” instruction.
- Professor Rachel Bloomekatz discussing New York State Rifle & Pistol Association Inc. v. Corlett, a case that questions whether the state of New York’s denial of petitioners’ applications for concealed-carry license for self-defense violated the Second Amendment.
- Professor César Cuauhtémoc García Hernández discussing Garland v. Gonzalez and Johnson v. Arteaga-Martinez which discuss whether an alien who is detained is entitled by statute, after six months of detention, to a bond hearing at which the government must prove to an immigration judge by clear and convincing evidence that the alien is a flight risk or a danger to the community and whether the courts below had jurisdiction to grant classwide injunctive relief.
- Professor Ruth Colker discussing Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization that considers whether all pre-viability prohibitions on elective abortions are unconstitutional.
