The SCOTUS Summer Abortion Ruling Bombshell, Explained (PODCAST)

Sept. 3, 2021, 6:59 PM

The U.S. Supreme Court is typically thought to be out most of the summer. But it issued a big opinion on abortion rights in Texas that came from the court’s so-called “shadow docket.”

For this special episode of Bloomberg Law’s “Cases and Controversies” podcast, hosts Jordan Rubin and Kimberly Robinson discuss where this opinion came from and why it came outside of the court’s normal operating procedures.

They also talk about how the justices came down in this case and what this ruling means for the liberal justices’ prospects moving forward.

Hosts: Kimberly Robinson and Jordan Rubin.

Producer: David Schultz.
