High Feminism and Lessons from Battlestar Galactica

Disruptions at the court.

Live from the University of Virginia and before a strangely happy group of law students, Sarah and David cover a range of topics from a convicted rapper who blames AI, disruptions at the Supreme Court, the Fifth Circuit becoming the new Ninth Circuit, and ethics with Amy (Justice Barrett). The hosts then take a series of questions from UVA students. God blesses this podcast.

-Does Sarah know her husband’s phone number?

-AI briefs and ineffective counsel

-SC justices interrupting female attorneys

-Justice Barrett’s opinion on SC ethics

-Relationships on the court

-Fifth Circuit is the new Ninth

-If the SC adopts a code of ethics, what should it be?

-Consequentialism, institutionalism, and other ism’s

-What SC topics will motivate voters going forward?

-Why is the court not interested in nationwide injunctions?
