Weekly Recap (Podcast): The Crossover Term

June 5, 2019, 5:46 PM

The justices issued four new opinions in argued cases June 3, including yet another 5-4 decision with a nontraditional lineup.

Last week, it was Justice Clarence Thomas crossing over to join the liberals in a 5-4 class action decision. The week before that, it was Justice Neil Gorsuch in a tribal matter. And the week before that, Justice Brett Kavanaugh handed the liberals a victory in a divided antitrust suit.

This week, it’s Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s turn. Bloomberg Law breaks down the 5-4 sentencing case in which she joined four of her conservative colleges, as well as the other three cases.

Countdown: There have been 42 cases decided so far this term with 27 more to go.

Hosts: Kimberly Robinson and Jordan Rubin.

Producer: Nicholas Anzalotta-Kynoch.
