Opinions issued during the just-completed Supreme Court term were a mixed bag for those excited about the five-justice conservative majority.
But law professor Stephen Vladeck says that’s not the full picture. A look at the so-called shadow docket—the work that gets done without oral argument—suggests it was a relatively good term for conservatives and the Trump administration.
On the latest episode of Bloomberg Law’s “Cases and Controversies” podcast, hosts Kimberly Robinson and Jordan Rubin lift the veil on some of the most consequential, yet enigmatic, actions. This includes green-lighting President Trump’s border wall to refusing to revisit the doctrine of qualified immunity shielding law enforcement from civil suits.
