Reviewing the Supreme Court Decisions
On Friday, June 30, I called in to talk with Jon Justice about the prior day’s big U.S. Supreme Court rulings, which held that the use of race as a factor in college admissions is a violation of the Equal Protection Clause of the U.S. Constitution, and a second decision involving a former employee of the U.S. Post Office who had sued for religious discrimination when he was forced to make Amazon deliveries on Sundays. Jon also asked me to predict the Court’s rulings for that day regarding a web designer refusing to build a website for a same-sex marriage as it violated her religious beliefs, and the fate of President Biden’s student loan forgiveness Executive Order (NOTE: I correctly predicted each result).
You can listen to our discussion here.
Then, on Monday, July 3, I did my usual segment on The BS Show with Bob Sansevere, and Bob and I discussed all four decisions. You can listen to that discussion here.
When I discuss court decisions, I always encourage readers/listeners to check out the decisions for themselves, and I try to post links to the actual decisions when available. Here are links to each of the four big cases:
Affirmative action: – Students for Fair Admissions, Inc. v. President and Fellows of Harvard College
Religious Discrimination in Employment – Groff v. DeJoy
Student Loan Forgiveness – Biden v. Nebraska
Denying Services on Religious Grounds – 303 Creative LLC v. Elenis
During each of my interviews, I mentioned an excellent article by Linda Chavez over on The Bulwark; you can read that article here.
