SCOTUS Virus Update: Wisconsin Voting, Kansas 3-Peat (PODCAST)

April 13, 2020, 8:54 AM

The U.S. Supreme Court’s first coronavirus-era test sparked a contentious 5-4 split, with the high court’s five Republican-appointed justices siding with Republicans over dissent form the four Democratic-appointees who sided with Democrats.

“Cases and Controversies” hosts Kimberly Robinson and Jordan Rubin break down the heated dispute and all of the latest Supreme Court news, coronavirus-related and otherwise.

They’re joined by Kansas Attorney General Derek Schmidt, whose office’s win in a recent Fourth Amendment case marked a clean sweep of all three of the state’s cases argued at the high court this term alone.

Schmidt talks to the hosts about all three disputes, his oral argument preparation, how coronavirus is impacting both the high court and his home state, and what might be the next Kansas dispute to hit Washington.

Hosts: Kimberly Robinson and Jordan Rubin

Guest: Derek Schmidt

Producer: David Schultz
