In this special episode of the CAFE Insider podcast, Joyce Vance interviews Rachel Barkow, while Preet is out. Barkow, who recently became a CAFE contributor, is a professor at NYU Law School and author of Prisoners of Politics: Breaking the Cycle of Mass Incarceration. She also served on the U.S. Sentencing Commission from 2013 to 2019.
In the interview, Barkow discusses consequential administrative law cases before the Supreme Court:
– Loper Bright Enterprises v. Raimondo, which asks the justices to overturn the long-standing Chevron doctrine that says courts should defer to federal agencies’ interpretation of ambiguous laws;
– CFPB v. Community Financial Services Association of America, which could invalidate the funding structure of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau; and
