In the last week before the Court's Christmas break, it heard oral arguments in several interesting cases concerning immigration courts, the fiduciary duties owed by retirement plans administrators, habeas corpus proceedings, and the big school choice case, Carson v. Makin. Your hosts discuss all of those cases, and Zack offers his predictions for Carson. Zack also interviews preeminent Supreme Court litigator Charles "Chuck" Cooper about his storied career. Finally, GianCarlo tests Zack's knowledge of the Supreme Court's use of scholarly articles in opinions.
