Short Circuit 243 | Live From New York It’s Short Circuit!

We recorded an episode live before an audience in New York City! NYC is home to the United States Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit, and it’s an all Second Circuit special. Join IJ’s Patrick Jaicomo as he talks with three former Second Circuit clerks: Maaren Shah, Bruce Green, and Alex Reinert. They dive into three recent Second Circuit cases—a certain defamation action against former President Trump, a case combining qualified immunity and a dog bite, and an attack on the irrationality of how the feds classify marijuana. There’s also reminiscing about our guests’ time working for the court.
