• Show Notes

This week on the CAFE Insider podcast, Preet and Joyce preview the upcoming Supreme Court term with SCOTUS expert Dahlia Lithwick. She’s a senior editor at Slate, where she writes about the courts and the law, and hosts the legal podcast Amicus. 

In this excerpt from the show, Preet, Joyce, and Dahlia discuss the upcoming Rahimi case, which could gut protective gun legislation, and the prudence of applying a “history and tradition” legal analysis to contemporary challenges. 

In the full episode, Preet, Joyce, and Dahlia discuss other developments at the High Court:

  • The real-life impact of a case that could do away with the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB), effectively undoing post-2008 regulatory reforms;
  • Justice Thomas’s decision to recuse himself in a case involving Trump’s lawyer John Eastman; and 
  • An apparent split between the conservative justices.
