Legal raconteur and writer David Lat joins us for some underneath-their-robes hijinks. David talks a bit about his new venture and his battle with COVID-19. Then he examines a disability case from the Eleventh Circuit which tries to figure out the relationship between a “public accommodation” under the Americans with Disabilities Act and a website. After that, Bob McNamara tells us a tragic story from the Ninth Circuit involving some “Snaps” and how they relate to Section 230.
