Decision Time at the Supreme Court was recorded from a live presentation on August 4th, 2020.
Summer is traditionally the time that the Supreme Court hands down its most important decisions. This year the stakes were exceptionally high, with issues on the docket that ranged from gay rights to contraception vs. religious freedom to the President’s income tax returns. Please join legal scholar Timothy Johnson as he reviews the recently concluded session and assesses its consequences for our future.
