Grading the Supreme Court

In the July episode of Common Ground, Matt Yospin, Steve Linsky and I review some of the major decisions issued by the Supreme Court in the final days of their session last month, including headline grabbers like Hobby Lobby, as well as some of the decisions that have not gotten as many headlines, but which may have significant consquences for individual rights, intellectual property law, and other important legal doctrines.

The cases we discussed were:

  • McCullen v. Coakley – Buffer zones
  • Burwell v. Hobby Lobby – Contraceptive coverage
  • CLS Bank v. Alice – Patentability of computer software
  • American Broadcasting Companies, Inc. v. Aereo, Inc. – Copyright infringement
  • Harris v. Quinn – Union dues
  • Riley v. California – Fourt Amendment protection for cell phones
  • NLRB v. Noel Canning – Recess appointments

To hear our analysis of these decisions, watch the show online.  Then come back and let us know your thoughts in the comments section.
