Oral arguments in the cases challenging President Biden's student loan cancellation plan dominated the news this week while other interesting SCOTUS developments flew under the radar. Zack discusses the opinions you may have missed, while GianCarlo does a deep dive into those oral arguments.

With administrative law front-and-center this week, GianCarlo interviews an expert on the subject, Professor Chad Squitieri of the Columbus School of Law at The Catholic University of America. The two discuss the Major Questions Doctrine and Catholic University's Project on Constitutional Originalism and the Catholic Intellectual Tradition. Last up, Zack does a good job stumping GianCarlo with trivia about the prior careers of famous Justices.

Here is a link to Professor Squitieri's article, Major Problems with Major Questions.
