OT2018 #1: "Rearranging Deck Chairs"

The first Monday of October Term 2018 is upon us, which means it's time for the kick-off of our third season. Live from Washington University in St. Louis, we bring you previews of the week's arguments. The cases involve a range of issues, from the Federal Arbitration Act to the death penalty, and we know that-- for now-- they'll be decided by an 8-member court. Speaking of, that hearing was... something. We'll share our reactions as best we can, with the hopes that we'll do a more in-depth analysis of the latest Kavanaugh confirmation news soon.
