OT2017 #18: “Legal Faux Pas”

Leah Litman returns to the co-host chair to join Ian for a look ahead at the March sitting. We preview National Institute of Family and Life Advocates v. Becerra, a case at the intersection of abortion and the First Amendment. We’ll also talk about Sveen v. Melin, a contracts clause case that will determine what happens to life insurance after divorce.

But before we get into those, we try something new– flagging a few interesting cert petitions that we’ll watch as they make their way through the court’s discussion lists. There are also birthdays and anniversaries to celebrate, as well as some key corrections to issue.
