Short Circuit 298 | Everything Causes Cancer

You ever notice those warning labels saying the State of California has carcinogenic concerns about whatever the product is you are buying? Ever also notice that those labels seem to be on a lot of products? Well, you’re not the only one. It seems the state has been saying it “knows” things cause cancer when pretty much no one else does. This week IJ’s Ben Field tells us all about a Ninth Circuit case where the state’s over-inclusiveness ran into the First Amendment. Then it’s off to Texas where its governor asserts some plaintiffs have the wrong man. IJ’s Bob Belden rides into the Fifth Circuit’s investigation over who they should sue. As he explains, in cases like this one there’s often no exact answer.

Plus, Bound By Oath Season 3 is coming! As we discuss, get your podcast subscriptions ready.
