The Supreme Court's docket fuels discussion at the weekly Milbank Tweed Forum

On Wednesday, October 1, the Milbank Tweed Forum presented the annual Supreme Court (P)Review. Led by Burt Neuborne, Inez Milholland Professor of Civil Liberties, panelists discussed the major cases on the Supreme Court’s docket as it begins its new term. Up for consideration are matters involving voting rights, pregnancy accommodation, police searches, and whether there is a legally protected right to a beard. Potentially on tap are cases that will call on the justices to address some of the most controversial issues of our time: same-sex marriage, abortion rights, and another challenge to Obamacare. The experts looked back at some of the major rulings from the Court’s most recent term.
