Professor Roosevelt, a Constitutional law scholar and author, will discuss some of the Supreme Court cases that will be decided during this term of the Court, including: The Gerrymander cases on limits to the power of States to redraw Congressional district lines, a decision that could change the future of politics in the U.S.; the Masterpiece Bakery case on the right to deny services to gay persons on the basis of a vendor’s religious beliefs; the right of labor unions to collect dues from non-members, a case that could destroy the political power of the public union; the right of government to seize and search cellphone records, and more. Professor Roosevelt will analyze and explain the cases and offer his thoughts on the likely outcomes. He will also address the theory of originalism as a standard for adjudication.
