Short Circuit 290 | Supreme Court Preview at UNC!

For the 7th year in a row Short Circuit travels to the University of North Carolina School of Law to preview the upcoming Supreme Court term, hosted by our friends at the school’s Federalist Society chapter. IJ’s Justin Pearson serves as your host, and joining him once again, as he has for many years now, is UNC professor Andrew Hessick. They’re also joined by IJ attorney, and UNC alum, Josh Windham. First they educate us with a little trivia about cases that we’ll see this term and then dig in with a deeper preview of a couple matters the justices will soon hear argument on, plus two cert petitions that the Court may take up. You’ll learn about Second Amendment mechanics, Fourth Amendment fun, and standing quandaries.
