It was a historic week for the U.S. Supreme Court, as the justices sharply divided in delivering victories for LGBT and immigrant rights and defeats for the Trump administration.
Justice Neil Gorsuch and Chief Justice John Roberts faced backlash from Republicans for siding with Democratic appointees in the closely-watched employment discrimination and DACA disputes with immediate impacts for millions of Americans.
“Cases and Controversies” podcast hosts Kimberly Robinson and Jordan Rubin break down these momentous decisions, joined by guests Nicole Saharsky of Mayer Brown and Omar Gonzalez-Pagan of Lambda Legal, who filed briefs in the LGBT discrimination cases.
They also note what’s left to come as we approach the term’s final and most contentious weeks.
