What Does ‘So’ Mean?

On today’s podcast, David and Sarah engage in a riveting discussion about the meaning of the word “so,” specifically in conjunction with the Supreme Court’s ruling in Van Buren v. United States, which deals with the legality of accessing a confidential government database for improper reasons.  Our hosts then walk us through a free speech controversy at Stanford Law School involving a local Federalist Society chapter and a parody flyer, including discussing some previously hidden context.  Finally, they review the 6th Circuit Court ruling striking down racial considerations for COVID loans.
