Short Circuit 225 | Supreme School Choice Victory

On a special Short Circuit, we sit down with Michael Bindas, a senior attorney at the Institute for Justice and lead attorney in Carson v. Makin. There, the Supreme Court just ruled in favor of Michael’s clients and thousands of children whose parents now have additional options for their education. We talk to Michael about the underlying religious liberty and school choice issues, what it’s like to argue a case at the Supreme Court, and the future of school choice in the wake of this important victory. Somehow we also work bourbon and rye into the conversation.

Transcript forthcoming.
