The Supreme Court handed down two big decisions today. First, the Court rejected an attempt by conservative attorneys general to declare the Affordable Care Act as unconstitutional. But don't get too comfortable, law nerds. There's more to this decision than meets the eye.

Then the Court declared that the city of Philadelphia must contract with a foster care agency that refuses to certify same-sex couples. What's even more shocking is that Justice Elena Kagan signed on. And so did Justice Stephen Breyer. And so did Justice Sonia Sotomayor!

What gives? How can all of Court's liberal justices have signed onto this requirement to certify an agency that discriminates? Well, on this rapid reaction episode of Boom! Lawyered, Jess and Imani have some answers. And what those answers say about the state of case law protecting so-called "religious freedom" is as fascinating as it is alarming.

    30:12

    Neil Gorsuch's Big, Dirty Abortion Game

    30:36

    It’s been a while since we’ve talked about what a bad dude Justice Neil Gorsuch is, and if you'd forgotten, the abortion double feature at the Supreme Court a week ago was a good reminder.Last Monday's two challenges to Texas SB 8 had some surprises and some predictable takes from the justices—Sonia Sotomayor and Elena Kagan were obviously not having it, and Amy Coney Barrett and Brett Kavanaugh surprisingly seemed a little itchy at the idea that SB 8's bounty provision could be used to limit other rights.And Gorsuch? Well, he showed just how much he hates abortion.In this week's Neil Gorsuch episode of Boom! Lawyered, hosts Jessica Mason Pieklo and Imani Gandy get into Trump's first Supreme Court appointee to the bench—his dissents, his associations (hello, Federalist Society!), and how his questioning during last week's proceedings could be a path to dismantling Roe v. Wade.Rewire News Group is a nonprofit media organization, which means that Boom! Lawyered is only made possible by the support of listeners like you!

    The Supreme Court Could Annihilate 'Roe v. Wade' Next Week

    28:55

    Here’s a fun thing that wasn't on our 2021 bingo card: multiple abortion rights challenges at the Supreme Court. But that happened thanks to Texas!The Supreme Court decided on Friday to hear two challenges to Texas SB 8, which restricts most abortions in the state after six weeks and puts a bounty in place for anyone who reports someone who helps someone else get an abortion. And they’re hearing the case on November 1—a week from today—like some "gut abortion" telethon.Hosts Jessica Mason Pieklo and Imani Gandy make sense of what has arguably been the most chaotic week in abortion jurisprudence in a while.Articles mentioned in the episode:Greek Life Is Even More of a Public Health Threat During COVID-19When a Miscarriage Becomes a Jail SentenceRewire News Group is a nonprofit media organization, which means that Boom!

    Abortion Rights Are in Chaos. What Now?

    25:40

    Last night, the Supreme Court made it official: the brutal, blatantly unconstitutional Texas abortion ban is hunky-dory. Roe v. Wade? Not so much.Is there any chance of the Texas ban still being overturned? Will other states pass copycat laws? Is there any hope of a federal bill enshrining abortion rights? On the latest episode of Boom! Lawyered, Jessica Mason Pieklo and Imani Gandy end an alarming week by peering into our very messy future.Rewire News Group is a nonprofit media organization, which means that Boom!

    The Supreme Court Ghosts Roe v. Wade

    26:47

    The Supreme Court just let a blatantly unconstitutional abortion ban take effect in Texas. They made this unprecedented and radical move on the “shadow docket,” which is a fancy way of saying they avoided any hearings or scrutiny of any kind. They haven’t even had to explain their reasoning. Now, maybe they will eventually fix this. But maybe they won't. At best, this is a major warning shot at Roe v. Wade. At worst, it's a complete dismantlement of 50 years of abortion rights precedent via casual inaction. Either way, you can bet more bans like this are coming to a state near you. To make as much sense of the chaos as possible, Jessica Mason Pieklo and Imani Gandy hop on the mics for an emergency episode of Boom!

    The Supreme Court Ends Its Term, Possibly Democracy

    33:00

    Last week, the Supreme Court completed its business for this term. And by "its business" we mean "gutting the meager remaining protections for voting rights in the United States." Other highlights of their closing act include the Affordable Cart Act living to fight another day, some subtle groundwork being laid for legal religious discrimination, and a disappointing number of justices (ZERO) announcing their retirement.On the last Boom! Lawyered before our own summer break, Jess and Imani break down the final crush of news from the Court and give the latest update on Dobbs v. Jackson Women's Health Organization.
