Supreme Court rules LGBT people protected from job discrimination.
"The supreme. Court ruled on Monday that a landmark civil rights law protects gay lesbian and transgender people from discrimination in employment. A resounding victory for LGBT writes from conservative court. The court decided by six to three vote that a key provisions of the civil rights, act, of nineteen, sixty, four, known as title seven that Baas job discrimination, because of sex among other reasons encompasses bias against lgbt workers. An employer, who has an individual being homosexual or transgender fires that person for traits or actions, it would not have questioned in members of different sects justice neil gorse wrote for the court. Sex plays a necessary and undistinguishable role in the decision exactly what title seven forbids? Justice Samuel Alito Brett cavern and Clarence Thomas dissented. Cabinet wrote a separate dissent that the court was rewriting the law to include gender identity and sexual orientation. A job that belongs to Congress still cavern, said the decision represents an important victory achieved by gay and Lesbian Americans. The outcome is expected to have a big impact for the estimated eight point one million lgbt workers across the country because most states don't protect them from workplace discrimination, an estimated eleven point three million. MILLION LGBT people live in the US according to the Williams institute at the Ucla Law School but Monday's decision is not likely to be the courts last word on a host of issues revolving around lgbt rights Gauche noted lawsuits pending over transgender athletes participation in school, sporting events and courts, also dealing with cases about sex, segregated bathrooms and locker rooms, a subject that the justices seemed concerned about during arguments in October. Employers who have religious objections to employing lgbt people also might be able to raise those claims in a different case Gore said.
Executive order takes aim at social media companies
"Earlier this week Twitter reddit a fact check label to to trump pose that made unsubstantiated claims about mail in voting trump responded with an executive order on Thursday that aims to curb some of the legal protections social media sites have regarding content my executive order calls for new regulations under section two thirty of the communications decency act to make it that social media companies that engage in censoring or any political conduct will not be able to keep their liability shield undeterred Twitter flagged a trump tweet on Friday for violating its rules against glorifying violence my guest is noted first amendment expert Eugene Volokh a professor at UCLA law school you can explain the liability protections that Twitter and other platforms get under section two thirty sure so let's say that somebody publishes something in a newspaper that libel I can do the newspaper and that's true even if it isn't a letter to the editor the newspaper liable as the publisher are things that it could know what someone live with me in a book store well in that kind of situation I couldn't sue the bookstore but it has certain protections treated in the distributor so I basically have to put on notice first but the book at live at the teller complied with me explain why that that point if the books to keep that up I can third question when somebody liable to me over the telephone even though they had back when their answering machine messages and outgoing and during wishing that people call the number they gave me something like a look about me you might call that a platform rather than a publisher distributor the telephone company is completely immune from liability likewise left the company live with me in email and night all up Google and say Gee email messages are being used to live only please cancel that account Google is also immune from liability and would be even in the absence of any federal statute so in nineteen ninety six Congress that that online service and content providers should be treated like like not like publishers like newspapers not like distributors like bookstores but kind of like the telephone company or any email they should be completely immune from liability from things other people that's why for example I can have comment on my blog without hearing that I could be shoot anytime somebody posts something presently liable to an account and that is true even in the online service or content provider does some screening either some screening with him after the fact removal so I'm going to be immune from liability for comment the people because even if I occasionally delete them comment that the car had the little girl personally insulting or for that matter I think they might be liable so then his Twitter within its rights to fact check trump posed with a link or even delete it you have to question one is to do with adding links perfect and that is your exercise the first amendment right Twitter speaking not Twitter blocking each responding to speak with a thought indubitably Twitter has a right to do then we'll have a right to do that even without federal section two thirty second question is what if Twitter delete that too is within its right under section two thirty it might also be part of the first amendment right you could argue that just like a newspaper has the right to refuse to publish something Twitter should have the right to delete things well that's a little bit of a closer call with me under section two thirty Twitter is indeed allowed to do that and what's more like there's some law out there that says service providers must be even handed in their actions with regard to post war cannot delete any posts even in the absence of section two thirty there wouldn't be any statute or the common law principle that requires Twitter to hold everything just like there's no rule that the bookstore after distribute every book that people ask it to district the border seems to be pushing the FCC to issue rules under section two thirty one of the things that is contemplated at least the draft that I have is actually having the secretary of commerce publication for rulemaking with the FTP asking that the entire property section two thirty in a way that limit service providers ability to block certain content it's not clear that the FTC has the regulatory authority to try to enter protection to thirty that way in any event it seems to me that the section it's pretty clear in allowing service providers to block whatever content they find objectionable so I don't think that that's going to go anywhere but at this point of course the call is to ask you to do something certainly the president is entitled to ask the FTC to do something the question is what can the FTC doing what we're in the midst of this on Wednesday the DC circuit court of appeals rejected claims that Twitter Facebook apple and Google conspired to suppress conservative views online tell us about that decision even in the apps section two thirty there's no legal rule that requires service providers to be air in what they allow and what they don't allow just like there's no legal rule that requires a bookstore to be even handed in the book by the seller that was the problem that the plaintiff there they claim to that social media companies generally we're discriminating against them because of their conservative political views but what about the family the person I am now that the court first amendment by the government it doesn't bind private social media company however important and powerful they might be second they said well this is a violation of antitrust law because there's this conspiracy when the court today no evidence of a conspiracy they've given no evidence of anti competitive agreements it's true that service providers do try to delete certain kinds of material that they find offensive but it doesn't show that that there is any violation the recursion was clearly correct in fact similar claims that's been brought before and been pretty much unanimously rejected by all the courts that have

Since McDonald was decided the supreme court has refused to hear a series of cases that have divided the lower courts often over the dissent of Justice Clarence Thomas who.

These cases include the Friedman and Highland Park case from twenty fifteen where the court refused to hear a challenge to Chicago laws that ban semiautomatic assault weapons peruta versus California in two thousand seventeen with a court refused to hear an appeal from the ninth circuit about whether you can carry a handgun outside the home for self defense. And then there's the Silvester and the CARA case from twenty eighteen where the court refused to hear a decision of the ninth circuit that called California's ten day waiting period for gun purchases a reasonable safety precaution.

You know, you to have to go to law school for three. Years to try to figure this stuff out. And it was in a language. You didn't understand? Now, we simplify it. So that everybody has access to that what we're really trying to legalzoom democratize law. I read somewhere that seventy percent of Americans don't have a will. And it just made me wonder like what percent of people do think don't have access to the legal system. But now do because of online services such as legalzoom the American Bar Association. Always has has done studies like this in the past. And they say that about fifty percent of the people who have a legal need don't ever get it taken care of and one of the main reasons they don't is because they just don't think they can afford an attorney. And that's what we're trying to overcome at legalzoom is we're trying to say, hey, look, if you really need help you should go out and find it instead of doing nothing. I wanna talk about how you came up with the idea for legalzoom or you were working in the law, and you met your co founder, Brian Lee. At law school at UCLA. Was he also practicing law the time he was we were both attorneys, and we were kind of I'll tell you the truth. We're kind of a little miserable. Didn't really like our jobs. So we were coming up with different business ideas and trying to figure out our escape plan. And I remember seeing this this magazine and the advertise for something called we the people. I remember seeing that they had six offices and thinking, wow, if they're doing essentially paralegal like work, and they had six offices in Los Angeles. I thought there must be something there. The other thing is when you're working at the law firm there such a disconnect between what you're actually doing what you thought you'd be doing like, you know, I got into law school. My parents said like, you know, while as soon as you finish law school finally get that will the mom's been bothering me for years about once I did graduate. I I had no idea how to do all this stuff. And I think I realized that I could put something together that really blended those needs and people had a need.

"When we come back ESPN LA now been in what you to listen to the words carefully this song. This is a cover of the Stevie one. Her hit. Don't you worry about a thing? And that would be my attitude if you see a my own the mater went out and hired Rick Pitino. This is the Mason in Ireland show. I'm John Ireland. Michael Thompson hanging out with this. Ben Lyons is here. But these in Greece he is right now. I know read to you from Forbes magazine a story posted today by Adam zoo, Goria, I will just read it word for word. He's one of those Greek bath houses, Rick Pitino is a top target of influential boosters to be the next head men's basketball coach at UCLA an industry source told me Casey Wasserman, and John Branka a graduate of the UCLA law school in an entertainment lawyer who is the co executor of the Michael Jackson state. Both want Patino the source said, quote, they're going after Patino, that's their number one choice who the source said Casey Wasserman is the most powerful person at UCLA the source added. He runs everything. Meantime, a source close to Patino said quote, he is very interested in the job. Ben what? That's me who's running UCLA UCLA the boosters right run every square, gene. I had a great quote for about college last Disney. Every university has multiple boosters at university of Texas. They just have one hundred. So these boosters are the ones who are calling the shot and running the program, and they're the same ones who wanted out for it or they wanna see offered same ones who wanted Ben Howland or the same ones who wanted this the next big name. Okay. Okay. We're up on Sesame Street. You wanna everything speaking both that you guys? Yeah. Real world learning you as UCLA disappointed you as a father of professional who had to sit in the living room coaches and guys come in. And right sell their program. You. What made Klay decide to go to Washington a big bag of money because Tino was the only Pac twelve school at one of them. You think when these coaches walked, and you think I was looking at them as Billy Graham, come on. You gotta be realistic, man. These guys all I says give my kid of chess plate and keep them out of trouble. That's all I care travel, and he can't do that. But Tito candidates exactly my point. Thank you, keep abandoned. Trouble fan was brought in the university campus on what he leaned keep them out of their brothels on every campus note, I mean, yes, then between that brothel and one that you frequent her at Michigan. Michigan. Michigan anything like that? No way. What like that? There was no around that. There was. Michigan with every every school thrill. They have when you go into recruiting trip. If you're a star athlete you gonna recruiting trip. You have came. I get the. Unquote, lovely. There's always a name. But it's always a girl to show you around campus and nine times out of ten they end up being friends with that girl. But if you know what I mean. Okay, John, and you guys are just going to sit back in two thousand nine hundred and be like, yeah. That's all good. Let's get more of that going on our university. If that means we here's a serious question for that's why we are having all these. Okay. Let's assume for the sake that this guy Andre McGee who set up the brothel at Louisville, and I give you that Patino hired him, and he's work. But that Rick didn't know and Andrea MaGee did this now Rick should have known. I grant you that. But why does he get punished for that rather than celebrated for all the kids? He graduated and led to different schools. He's the only coach in the country ever to lead two different schools to national championship Kentucky and Louis is not an alibi. Okay. Just because you didn't know when you should know that doesn't mean you're off the hook. He should've known. It should be involved in the lives of his players, and his coaches and what's going on with his team. That's what any sensible coach would do. I don't buy this urban Meyer. Well, my wife didn't tell me about my assistant coach beating his wife. I didn't know you have to know. That's your job. That's why you're paid millions of dollars to help raise young men..

And as roving today's episode, you are one of the maybe even the leading expert in the country on the excessive fines clause written several articles about that clause. And we're gonna be talking about that at some length today. It sounds fun. Well, if it doesn't sound fun to you. It's not going to sound fun to any. No it really does. It's it's nice to have this focus on the excessive fines clause. There aren't too many of us who pay attention to it are focused on the excessive fines cluster. They might be a little excessive.

"We just, I just actually before convening this roundtable with the three of you. I spoke to if former admissions counselor university of Pennsylvania, and one thing that did come up and continues to come up is whether or not someone can take away a seat from somebody. Else JC. You seem to think that happened to you? I think if you think about what colleges are Domitian of college is mostly education. Just like the mission of the World Cup is mostly soccer. Mission Olympics is mostly sports in the mission of making movies, mostly acting, directing Roseanne people. When I was like younger, you know, I had a secret dream of a movie star, but it's not my main thing spending my time on. So I can't just go to Steven Spielberg and say, hey, you know Schakowsky your next blockbuster as the main lead role because I love to act and I bring intellectual diversity to cast that doesn't fly. And just like wise school is mostly about academics in. So if you can't do a good job in school, why should you get into Harvard? Just sounds like it's just not related to playing sports. And I also think that the big question I think that I'm trying to understand from the three of you is who is benefiting from these policies, particularly if we get rid of rain. Ace based affirmative action, which they've done in Michigan and they've done that in California. Is there a way to focus on class? Yeah, I would just like to jump in and say the in this country, you cannot legitimately separate class from race. Race really determines your class background in large part in this country. I would also say that it is a reality in in some respects that that elite universities, the people of color who admit it are probably buying large from upper middle class backgrounds more so than lower middle-class background. As I would say about any public policy. Nothing is perfect and there's always room for improvement. I always liked the point folks to an essay by one of my law professors professor Angela on watchi- willik who's now Edina Boston University, but she has a couple of really interesting, I believe, proposed solutions to kind of get it. This particular skewed sort of problem at the elite universities and one of solution was to sort of. Include as a requirement and essay where students from diverse backgrounds, they submit an essay about their racial background and industrial heritage to the extent that they know it and how that has helped shape their identity, whether they want that background even be considered in the emissions process, how he can add to the diversity of the college environment. And she, she really suggests that this is a way to get it. The university's intentions around diversity. So we got one solution from bernita. We're coming up on the end of our segment. I wanna hear one solution from JC and and I and I'll give you a couple of minutes to think about your proposed solution. Go ahead JC so I have another solution. So when California got rid of a firm action to proposition, they came up with butter solution, I think. And what they did was they do realize that Costner race are linked, but through a lot of class variables, you can also count floor. Disadvantage African-Americans. For example, Richard Sanders, UCLA law school had a system where he looked at parent's income parents. Assets because we know that African Americans have much lower assets than white Americans do histories, discrimination and so on, and you can look at utter variable is the some effect Dole's variables was that UCLA was able to admit diversity, people who were disadvantaged and who also really succeeded. Diana, I want to hear from you. I think something's gotta give. I think the system itself has a lot of problems. I do think it kind of comes down to looking at students as an entirety when they're coming into colleges and kind of having perhaps the admissions process be a bit more complex. It's hard to do when you have such a high number of students applying at once. But I do think there has to be something else implemented because even if we just take away kind of all programs and that kind of attempt to create more diverse college campuses and just have it based on merit. If just that merit is test scores alone, and you just have the top ten. Test scores. I don't necessarily that's gonna make for the most complex and interesting and diverse group of individuals at a given college..
