The 3-3-3 Body Problem

SCOTUS threesomes and textualism on steroids.

No Rahimi decision yet … but Sarah and David have the next best thing: math! The two dive into Sarah’s recent POLITICO piece in which she and Dean Jens used data to analyze the Supreme Court.

The Agenda:
—The three-body problem
—Was Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization radical?
—Moneyballing the court
“Right to counsel” at the 9th Circuit
Racial discrimination in contracting
—Test cases are test cases
Judge Newsom’s “unusual” concurrence
Judge Easterbrook on fonts
—The health of the Constitution
