Friday round-up

Briefly:

  • In the latest episode of the Heritage Foundation’s SCOTUS 101 podcast, Elizabeth Slattery and Tiffany Bates “talk with reporter Mark Walsh about what happens during SCOTUS oral arguments and their favorite legal dramas on TV” and “break down two recent decisions on qualified immunity and the never-ending Encino Motorcars.”
  • Good Judgment offers court-watchers an opportunity to forecast the outcome of Trump v. Hawaii, a challenge to the latest version of the Trump administration’s entry ban.
  • At The Tennessean, Adam Tamburin reports on a recent appearance by Justice Sonia Sotomayor at Vanderbilt University, where the justice “touched on a number of topics, from her debut as a judge — which made her knees knock with nerves — to her strong bond with fellow Justice Clarence Thomas, who often disagrees with her on the bench.”
  • Counting to 5 (podcast) looks at this week’s two opinions and “other Supreme Court news and developments.”
  • At Essence, Britni Danielle discusses Monday’s per curiam decision in Kisela v. Hughes, in which “the Supreme Court dealt an alarming blow to victims of police violence after ruling that a woman could not sue the police officer who shot her.”
  • At Slate, Yuvraj Joshi argues that “[w]hile much has been and will be said about Justice Neil Gorsuch’s deeply conservative jurisprudenceon this week’s anniversary of his confirmation to the Supreme Court, the biggest impact of his elevation to the court is not actually seen in his early judicial leanings,” but “in the already hugely consequential legacy of his nomination fight.”
