OT2018 #11: "A Lot Of Meatballs"

There are twice as many women in this episode as there were at the Supreme Court podium in the whole December sitting. Leah and guest host Jaime Santos recap the week's arguments with two special guests. First, we’re delighted to have with us Lindsay See, the Solicitor General of West Virginia, to discuss her argument in Dawson v. Steager. Then, we play the highlight reel of another first-time advocate, Ishan Bhabha, in Biestek v. Berryhill. Finally, Kate Levine calls in to help us understand a case that kind of baffled us last week: Gamble v. United States.
