Supreme Court Rules New York Cannot Limit Attendance At Houses Of Worship Due To COVID-19
"Some religious groups in new york are celebrating last night's rare late night. Supreme court decision blocking an executive order from new york governor andrew cuomo that restricted attendance at religious services in their neighborhoods because the pandemic ultra orthodox jewish organizations in brooklyn and queens and the roman catholic diocese of brooklyn claim. That cuomo single them out. The state pointed to the recent spike in covid nineteen cases. And then there was that alarming ultra orthodox wedding last week. The two hundreds not wearing masks. The court's decision was five. Four with its newest justice emmy coney barrett considered the fifth vote. Emily brazilan staff writer at new york times magazine and fellow at the yale law. School is here emily. Thank you for taking a break from your thanksgiving thanks. You are welcome. Glad to be here. And we should say the to litigants the ultra orthodox jewish groups and the catholic diocese were already not subject to these restrictions. Because they've been lifted there's a color system for restrictions in new york and Cova cases had obey abated in their area. But what was the argument from the court in blocking even targeted restrictions. Well the corpus arguing that new york hadn't shown that less strict measures would be enough to protect public health. Which is a pretty cursory kind of way of thinking about this. You can see the concur. Ince's by justice gorsuch as justice cavanaugh. That some of the conservative judges didn't like the idea that essential businesses which were permitted to open a new york included stores but did not include houses of worship. And i think the odd thing about the majority's analysis here is what it's comparing so the majority behaves as if people going to stores are the same as people congregating in a house of worship even though it's very unusual in store for lots of people to be sitting together or certainly singing or chanting together for a long time. That's all in a church or synagogue or a mosque and we know that that is a riskier activity. So there was no discussion of the science or scientific public health considerations in the majority's opinion. And what about chief. Justice john robertson. The three liberal justices dissenting. What did they say. Well chief justice. John roberts says there's no reason for us to decide this right now for the reason that you gave earlier new york had a lift these restrictions for now because the krona virus spread is not as bad in the city so these restrictions said that in the red zone the highest risk new york. You could have ten people in a house of worship in the orange zone. You could have twenty-five people but the catholic archdiocese in the docks synagogues that have sued. They no longer are subject to those restrictions and so she's jeff roberts was making a kind of traditional conservative judicial modesty Moved here in which he said. Look if they're subject to these restrictions again maybe they will be proved to be unduly harsh but at the moment. They're not so we don't need to step in here. And this is a classic example of a judge saying you know what. Let's leave this in the hands of public. Health officials not have judges step in to make these decisions. Unless it's absolutely necessary will be clear. What does it mean. I mean be clear. Only because i'm not able to figure this out. Temporary decision made on an emergency basis by the way when ruth bader ginsburg was on the court roberts sided with the liberals and the decision was in favor of restrictions that was when california had restrictions in place. So obviously there's been a tilt here but what does this mean for other states for new york when it comes to restrictions on houses of worship in the pandemic y- i'm kind of scratching my head about that too. I mean it looks like what the court is saying. Is that if you have businesses open you have to treat churches and other houses of worship just like those businesses but without paying attention to the greater risk that the church that you know religious service can entail and that's very strange to me because it seems so at odds with the science and what we know about the spread of coronavirus. And so you're right. This is a decision. That's a temporary restraining. Order against new york. The merits the kind of larger case is still to be thrashed out the lower courts and so one hopes going forward that there will be more attention to these apples to apples. Comparisons and figuring out what the state really needs to do to protect public health and mall many have seen the video from the acidic wedding in brooklyn this month. Hundreds packing a synagogue. No-one wearing masks mayor. Bill de blasio said or organizers will find fifteen thousand for violating restrictions. And so we're keeping an eye on that to see what happens. There might be any kind of consideration of
Free speech and the struggle against misinformation ahead of 2020 election
"Last week, The New York Post published a potentially damaging story about Hunter Biden, son of the Democratic presidential nominee. Based on emails, The Post said, were provided by former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani and originally harvested from a laptop computer left in a Delaware repair shop. There were enough questions about the authenticity of the emails that most mainstream media declined to publish the story, but it's the kind of content that Khun spread like wildfire on Social media. In a remarkable move Twitter on Wednesday Band users from sharing links to the story because it said the emails may have been hacked and contained private information. It reversed course two days later after Republicans accused Twitter of censorship. But the episode illustrates a question our guest, Emily Bazelon, has been thinking about in an age when questionable, Perhaps even fabricated content can sweep through the digital world unchecked. Does our traditional commitment to unfettered free speech still serve democracy. And the cover story for this week's New York Times Magazine, Basil on surveys the impact that lies and conspiracy theories sometimes promoted by foreign actors can have on our political discourse. And she explores how other countries think differently about free speech and its relationship to a healthy democracy. Emily Bazelon is a graduate of the Yale Law School and a journalist. She's a staff writer for the New York Times Magazine and the Truman Capote fellow for Creative Writing at Yale Law School. She's also the author of two books. She joins us from her home in New Haven, Connecticut. Emily Bazelon welcome back to fresh air. Thanks so much for having me you open your piece with a story that began making the rounds some months back, among right wing voices on the Internet that there was a plan by the forces of Joe Biden to stage a coup to take over the government in connection with the November election. First of all, what was the basis of this claim? Great. So this is ahh concocted claim and the sort of colonel at the center of it was a project called the Transition Integrity Project, a group of about 100 academics and journalists and pollsters and former government officials and former campaign the staff staffers. They started meeting over the summer to kind of game out various scenarios for the November election, and so they were basically testing American democracy in the event that President Trump wins in the event that vice President Biden winds To see in various scenario is what could happen. And in the event, there's a contestant result in a long, nasty count. Yes, exactly especially in the event if there's a contestant result in litigation and other possibilities, and so in one of their several scenarios, Biden wins the popular vote but loses the Electoral College. And so in that hypothetical case they imagined the Democrats would get desperate. And they might consider encouraging California and the Pacific Northwest to threaten to secede in exchange for pressuring Republicans to expand the size of the Senate. So Rosa Brooks, who was one of the organizers of this project, She's a law professor at Georgetown. She published an essay where she mentioned this threat to succeed in one sentence in an essay in The Washington Post. On the next day, you see someone named Michael Anton's, a former national security adviser to President Trump. He has an article called The Coming CU Question. Mark and based on Rosa Brooks is characterization of what the transition integrity project was doing. He starts saying that Democrats are laying the groundwork for a revolution and then you see that article take off in extremist online communities. There is AH podcast maker named Dan Bongino, who's a big trump supporter. He makes videos about it. One of them has the tag. They are telling you what they are going to do exclamation point his videos pull in millions of views. Then you see the story. My great toe, a right wing website called Revolver News Revolver. News starts to spin up the idea that Norm Eisen, who participated in the transition Integrity project and is a longtime Democratic lawyer in Washington. That he's at the center of this supposed coup. And from there, Tucker Carlson feature someone talking about this concocted made up story on his show. And then you see it just go viral on social media and get picked up by lots of groups, including, like a county Republican organization in Oregon, So it is Perfect kind of story because it pulls in both traditional media in the form of Fox and also social media. And then you see President Trump get involved. He tweets in praise of Revolver news, and then he tweets quote the November 3rd election result may never be accurately determined, which is what some want. And that's a kind of typical dark, slightly vague, foreboding kind of warning from President Trump that further perpetuates this coup narrative. And then Trump later retreat. Someone talking about a coup with regard to Nancy Pelosi. So you see from this hypothetical project that was really meant to be a kind of academic exercise about the election. This whole sat of conspiracy theories on the right that get a lot of play in the media on social media, and then from the president

Remembering Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg
"Epic luck is a professor of law and the Founding Faculty Director of the Solomon Center for Health, Law and policy at Yale Law school she is an expert on Congress and the political process federalism civil procedure and health law among her most recent work is the most extensive empirical study ever conducted about the realities of the congressional lawmaking process published as two articles. In the Stanford Law review she has worked for. A Mayor Governor and senator, but she's here today because she also worked for Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg she and fellow former clerk Jillian. Metzger wrote a piece in the new. York. Times just days after Justice GINSBURG staff recalling her impact on them and on equality for men and women in America professor. Thank you for joining us and before we begin our deepest condolences to the loss of your mentor and friend. Thank you so much. It's really a loss for all of us. Yes. Well, I believe you were at the all night vigil last night for Justice Ginsburg I'm hoping you can kind of take us there and describe that experience. Sure. So many people saw on television yesterday the law clerk stood outside to receive the justices casket, which is a typical tradition, but was very striking. I think yesterday because we covered the plaza, an perse because there are so many of us. But second because you were social distancing for covid. So created quite a striking visual I'd ask her ceremony. There is a tradition that other justices have observed where there's an honor guard that guards the casket for the entire time at lays in the court and law clerks at the sign of honor to their boss. Often stand is shifts next to the casket what we did yesterday and are still doing until tomorrow morning actually for the full forty, eight hours, the casket is. The court is that we have two law clerks that are standing by her side every single minute from the time she got to the court through the night. So I was there last night at midnight that another shift at one forty in the morning it's not unique as you know in the Jewish tradition, there is that tradition of standing by the side of the body for burial and several people have asked me wells is happening because she's a Jewish justice. This part of the Jewish tradition at it's a happy coincidence. It's not just for her as happened before, but I was very meaningful I think and really special way to honor her well. Let's talk about just the Ginsberg's impact on you. What did you learn as her clerk started in July two thousand three, right? Yes. Can you talk about your time as for Clark but also impact on you going forward from that time I mean I think her impact on anyone Shane. Countered is really immeasurable as a law clerk for her her work ethic is renowned. She worked harder than anyone I just did another interview with someone else who's I? Well, very supreme court advocate who mentioned that you know nobody prepared more than Justice Ginsburg even the lawyers who are preparing their cases or less prepared than she was on as her law clerk, you could not out prepare her so was she taught us aw was this work ethic and the idea of Being incredibly careful. So you can stand behind your work, one, hundred percent she instilled that in us an enormous way, the other things that she instilled with us during the clerkship or some of her signature qualities. So she was remarkably collegial in the sense that she could disagree and dissent without throwing sharp elbows or causing fights and remaining friendly and close with her colleague. She's obviously the independent thinker. She also had just an amazing life outside the court she basically filled her. Entire. Day She would work until eight pm she would go to the opera than she will come back and work more and she sort of showed you how to have this incredibly full life where you could work hard and you know she wouldn't use your play hard but you know fill your life with all the things you love and every aspect and the last thing say about my time there that her relationship with her husband was as I said before one. For the ages and you could not work for her without seeing that relationship would have birthday parties for every law clerk in her office at her husband. Marty would big cake they were such equal partners. He was her biggest booster her stories through the ages were all about how they supported one another different times in their career. It was really an amazing experience for young person. I was newly married at the time to see that kind of marriage and learn from it. So did she maintain a relationship with her clerks after their terms the court we're up? Oh, absolutely. It was sort of remarkable and a Guy John Stronger and deeper and deeper. Every year I would say that with every passing year I felt closer and closer and closer to her, which is just
Why 'Cryptocurrency Would Not Exist Without Black People'
"Actually WanNa ask you about this one tweet storm that you wrote and it began. CRYPTOCURRENCY would not exist without blind people. You explain to people what it is. He wrote there yeah, yeah, yeah, absolutely, and this was a talk. That I did at after a while I was even ignorant, so we talk about you know tokenism. You know a continuation of the evolving form of housing transfer body right, and that's from a lot of different different things, different peoples different cultures right, so it's not just say black people are the sole reason why cryptocurrency exist, but it is to say that the prevalence of Fiat currency only came into fruition through the US government in two particular historical instances made this happen one the funding of union troops right during the civil war who desperately needed feet this out at the time, which was one of the economic centers in the world. I don't think people realize how much fuel the cotton and textile. Textile Industry in the loan industries that came off of that globally a really created. Will they accommodate be happy that and created the financial centers like New York in fact back then there were more millionaires per capita. I believe in Mississippi than there were New York and in in this has changed over time in that experiment ride that Abraham Lincoln took in leveraging Fiat currency, which was more broadly understood as we all agree, this has value rather than being backed by or silver like the pound lead into the Nixon years where we quite literally came off the gold standard after establishing it. And this is the history right of how money has evolved in how Tokens Ation where we see the token ization of assets and even you know stable coins in terms of store value money. That, that's the evolution in its follow, and that some of the people the first people who were securitise were also black people We look at Monticello and Thomas Jefferson that was funded trauma loan, collateralized by slaves and also built by slaves. So the complexities in terms of how finances evolve very deeply intertwined into this systemic racism, you know that I call it on and that people you know unfortunately push off as or minimise as a well. They said the inward or well. They didn't let this person into this complex right in. It's really a lot more out. Actually love to be called the inward half systemic racism gone. in in a have the superficial racism right exists I can deal with that mentally and emotionally. You know, but but the constraints of the systemic aspect has quite literally change people's life trajectories in terms of whether they can be an entrepreneur whether they could be hired. How much access to credit they get and how that affects their lively. I don't know if people know this story, but Senator Cory Booker from new. Jersey often talks about this in his life trajectory where. Parents had been looking for a home in a suburb of New Jersey that had good schools, and it was considered a white neighborhood, and they kept being told that these houses that they thought were on sale were not available and this organization I can't remember They must have just worked on like fairness in housing or something. got white people to go as decoys after they had gone to these houses and found that the houses were suddenly available and this. This kept happening and so eventually they picked how they wanted, and when they should have to sign the papers, the sellers were surprised because they thought it was getting a white couple buying it, and that was foul. Corey ended up at you. Know in this great school district. Of course he lake went to Stanford. Was Ruth scholar went to Yale Law School now as a USA I mean he's like you know super successful, but yeah, that's just one story about. How systemic racism or in that case, the the fight against it or winning the fight against it in one instance did have a positive outcome.
Author 'Rodham' imagines a different `Hillary'
"A young Hillary Rodham madly in love with the man she met at Yale Law School abandons her own path and heads to Arkansas slowly she starts to uncover bill Clinton's many infidelities and makes a choice what would have happened if Hillary Rodham had never married Bill Clinton a new novel by Curtis Sittenfeld imagines it just that and she joins me now to talk about it hello hello your book starts out in a familiar way but then your book takes a very different attacks from the historical timeline what what happens so in real life Bill Clinton proposed to Hillary Rodham twice and she said no both times and then he proposed a third time and she said yes and in my version she says no the third time two and she goes her own way then she initially becomes a law professor and Chicago at northwestern and then she kind of goes on from there and the book follows her over the next forty years I want to ask you before we go much further in this you know so much has been said about Hillary Clinton why did you want to write speculative fiction about her doesn't everyone is in a totally natural impulse and possibly so actually it's funny because I agree with you that so much has been written about Hillary and it was sort of in reaction to that that I think I wrote this book so in the lead up to the two thousand sixteen election I was invited to write essays about Hillary and I would decline because I felt like every possible thing there was to say about Hillary had been said she had been analyzed from every angle and then an editor at esquire magazine invited me to write a short story from Hillary's perspective and I accepted and writing that story was this kind of strange exercise where I realize that the question was not what to the American people think of Hillary Clinton but what does Hillary Clinton think of the American people and it turned out that that I had four hundred pages worth of thought to say on that so it was actually trying to sort of slipped the narrative and and instead of making her the one who's scrutinize lake giving her voice which of course is totally fictionalized voice likes she did not write this book I wrote this book and so she says no to Bill Clinton she becomes as you mention a law professor she then becomes a politician was it inevitable that she'd become a politician how did you come up with this path for her I think that in real life if she had not married Bill Clinton I'm not sure she would have led the life that I created for her in the novel and I think with a novel like this you know that the reader is bringing some opinions or expectations and I as the writer I'm kind of toying with those expectations and sometimes for filling them and sometimes defying them and I felt like it was the most interesting version and to have her enter politics but you know have no pulp click association with Bill Clinton yes except to quite a few meetings along the way I want to ask you about writing Bill Clinton the character because like the real life Bill Clinton your fictionalized bill also has a swirl of sexual misconduct allegations around him and he's also accused of sexual assault so one of the reasons that I love fiction is that I feel like getting knowledge is that people are very complex and that the same person can have very appealing qualities and very troubling qualities and I think that the plan is like the embodiment of that where I would never pretend that I can't understand his his appeal I would never you know sort of say that I can look at him with admiration and you know without feeling any sense of sort of discomfort and so and I think that a novel allows for knowledge in that like this is in an essay that's trying to either celebrate him or take him down they're both the very intertwined in our consciousness are you trying to suggest that we might consider them differently if we had to think of them as individuals yes so actually I think that one of the reasons I wrote this book is that around the time even after the two thousand and sixteen election I had this realization that school children who knew Hillary was running for president often literally didn't know that Bill Clinton existed and that kind of blew my mind where I thought you know what is what if adults saw Hillary as completely separate from dell the way that kids do and you think that that would change fundamentally the way that she's you yes I do I think I mean I'm not I'm not saying that it would sort of solve all the problems of sexism but I think it would make her have an identity much more like that of Elizabeth Warren or any clothes are I wonder if it isn't insulting to suggest that a man held Hillary Clinton back maybe this story and their story is one of a hugely successful partnership that is arguably one of the most successful in American political history it's totally possible that you're right like I'm not even sure it's either or I think it may be though Clinton held her back in some ways and probably helped her and others and the same for I think maybe she held him back in some ways or maybe didn't always do things that were in is personal or professional best interest and then in other ways she was hugely helpful like I don't I don't think it's an either or it's sort of situation for for either of them did your opinion of either bill or Hillary Clinton change after giving them the fictional treatment you know being intimately involved in sort of creating this alternate narrative for them so I was already an admirer of Hilary before I began working on the book if anything I definitely have more admiration for her in terms of toughness her perseverance her hard work there's also there's all these stories I think they are sort of in the public but they don't get that much attention about what a loyal thoughtful friend she is like often over many decades or you know like she's she's very funny which is not really part of her public image so I am fully pro
Top U.S. Law Schools Now Teaching AI Courses
"The top law schools around the country, new A I courses schools, like Columbia, Harvard and Stanford have already introduced courses utilizing AI, how artificial intelligence meets the law after these tech headlines. Tesla CEO Elon Musk made his case for an on-demand robot taxi fleet that he says would begin next year in a presentation to investors early this week in Palo Alto, California. Mr. musk said by the middle of next year, more than one million tesla cars on the road will be able to operate without a human driver. He also expects regulatory approval in at least one market that would enable a robot taxi service by the end of twenty twenty the plan is for tesla owners to push a button on a smartphone app to put their cars into commercial service and pick up riders on the company's network a startup that helps freight carriers manage their fleets is the latest tech company valued by investors at more than one billion dollars. San Francisco based keep truck in has raised one hundred forty nine million dollars to build out its digital freight services offering things like electronic logging devices to reduce fuel usage and monitor how much time truckers spend behind the wheel. Keep trucking also says. It is developing artificial intelligence applications to analyze footage and driving events in real time and the journal says credit card pitches are moving from the mailbox to the social media feed. Several big card issuers recently increased spending on Facebook ads and never to attract new borrowers case in point capital. One and American Express spent an estimated eighteen point six million and thirteen point five million in twenty eighteen capital. One for its part has been paying Instagram and Twitter users with one hundred thousand to one million followers to post photos, manly of restaurant settings. And while growing the ad money is still significantly smaller than what several issuers spent on traditional male pitches Capital One and discover spent three hundred seventy seven million and one hundred ninety six million respectively coming up how students are getting ready to confront emerging legal issues with a I support for this podcast and the following message. Come from Deloitte, a global leader in digital transformation, helping clients apply technologies. Like, cloud, an AI to their unique business challenges Deloitte, God com slash look again. US law schools are adding artificial intelligence courses to their curricula in an effort to get students ready to confront the emerging legal issues around artificial intelligence. The Wall Street Journal's JR Waylon has more as official intelligence permeates. Our devices are workplace in society. It's inevitable that the legal responsibility of AI is going to be a growing concern and US law schools have recognized that and they're adding a are related coursework Wall Street Journal reporter Jared council is here with some details. So Jared, Columbia, Stanford and Harvard law schools are among those who have added courses that touch on topics. Yes. Those law schools as well as the law school at the university of Chicago and women Mary university. Somebody schools have already had technology focus kind of courses, you know, touching on internet privacy and things like that. But we started to. Notice that more of these schools are introducing a I focus courses for for their their students who ultimately will be the lawyers and judges and regulators of the future. What's the sort of training that the coursework aims to give these law students? These courses are designed to give these law students exposure to some of the current and potential issues around artificial intelligence and just get them associated with you know, questions that that that might arise like, you know, what what happens when an algorithm violate someone's civil rights or who should be at fault win an autonomous vehicle is involved in an accident with someone and even beyond those types of questions. Artificial intelligence is increasingly being used by regulators for enforcing a law that US patent and technology office and the social security administration. They're all using AI to address. Some of the the the workload and paperwork that they have. And it's raising questions like we'll how come a computer gets a decide which case is seeing and isn't seeing and so these lawyers again, they're not here to answer these questions or come up with with solutions, but just to start exploring some of the the potential issues that might arise this is part of a brave new world that we're in it's possible as you put it in your story that someday a party in a lawsuit could be represented by machine. Yeah. Speaking with professor at the university of Chicago and Anthony, Casey. And he he he mentioned that it's it's not far fetched that we could have systems that that that one day will automatically create contracts, and you know, potentially represent parties in a lawsuit and even be parties to a lawsuit there. There's already algorithms today that are that are creating music, and who has the copyrights to that music who gets paid. From the world tease. You know, all of these questions are starting to come about. And Yale Law School was one of the pioneers in this area. They offered AI related courses as far back as two thousand fourteen and a Stanford law. Professor you spoke with said, it's important to get future lawyers technologists in the same room because there's a lot for them to discuss there's been this divide. If you will where the the lawyers don't really understand the underlying technology, and how it works, and you know, what is a machine learning algorithm. And on the flip side, the the computer scientists aren't really thinking about some of the legal implications of the way, they design their their system. So the idea Stanford and even some other schools is to get them in the same room. So they can start discussing these issues, and and maybe come up with ideas at the other of their group. Didn't think of couldn't think of
So Yale Law School endorses anti-religious bigotry now?
"A Republican Senator from Duri is calling on on his his alumni alumni at at Yale Yale Law Law School School to to stop stop religious religious discrimination discrimination or or lose lose federal federal funding funding with with more. more. Here's Here's USA USA radio radio networks networks temper. temper. Erg Erg Republican Republican was was re Senator Josh Holly said during an appearance on FOX and friends that he wants Yale university's funding be taken away. If the school doesn't treat religious students fairly. We've heard these kind of complaints before they don't like the radical left doesn't like the position that religious organizations take on abortion or on traditional marriage or range of other issues. All of it's really about is Yale has been looking for an opportunity to discriminate against religious organizations that provide many his free legal services to people in need and to discriminate against students faith, they're not permitted to do that under federal law. So if they want federal funding, they need to stop discriminating, Yale did put out a statement that says if an employer refuses to hire students at our Christian gay black or veterans they will not fund that position to which Holly says it sounds like Yale now has been exposed for what they're doing. And now they're trying to backtrack. But there's still a lot of trust is trust us. We'll get it. Right. So we're not going to trust anything. I want to see the details of their. Policy. I wanna see that they are treating religious students and religious organizations in the same way, they treat every other legal organization and every other student, and if he doesn't do that if they don't treat religious students fairly fish should have their federal funding strip

But you know, what I expect the man in this country and the men in this committee, and many of them believe me because we all signed onto this letter to demand and FBI investigation, but really guess who's perpetuating all of these kinds of actions. It's the man in this country. And I just want to say to the men of this country just shut up and step up. How does that work? How do you? Do you want them to step up or do you want them to shut up or do? You want them to shut up and step up silently while still shutting up how does that work? That is good. Would that be? Yeah. That is Senator maisy hero Rono of Hawaii who is a democrat. And I found that to be one of the most sexist things I've ever heard welcome to the show at on Twitter official dental on Facebook. I just found that to be very. Shame on her. Absolutely. Shame on her. Here's the thing with all of this. This. I I off the idea that. The way that she the way that she says this. It's the men who are perpetuating this. It is the main way to make a universal statement and waited generalize. Everyone else's experience and project them as as evidence when evidence doesn't exist in this case right now, and that's what's happening. People are generalizing near experiences there. Generalizing others experiences to stand in for the lack of evidence in this case. That's that's it. I don't think I think the statement like this is incredibly ignorant of the history of of all of this. Look anyone who is associated with a Republican nominated by a Republican at cetera is damned if they do damned if they don't for instance, Cavanaugh almost more than anybody. I twenty five out of forty eight of his law. Kirks law clerks have been women. He was the first judge in the history of the DC circuit to hire four female clerks in one year over Kerry Severino reported that he was he has mentored women promoted numerous female careers, twenty of his female law clerks went onto clerk on the supreme court. And every single one of those highly accomplished women, she writes who is not precluded from doing. So by her current employer has endorsed Kavanagh's candidacy for the supreme court describing him as one of the strongest advocates in the federal judiciary for women lawyers. He has had more female clerks than Ruth, Bader Ginsburg. He has done more to promote the careers of women who those who have worked with him in association with him than some of the actual other female justices on that court. That's that is unquestionable. In fact, one of the supreme court liberate litigators in a liberal feminist. Lisa Blatt, Severino. Noted endorsed Kavanagh's candidacy and other an encouraged other liberals to do well her standard. She says is quote, whether the nominee is unquestionably. Well, qualified brilliant has integrity, and is within mainstream of legal thought cavenaugh easily meets those criteria. Anna Chula a Yale Law School, professor wrote an op Ed in the Wall Street Journal praising Kevin offer his mentorship of women describing him as a fierce champion of their careers. She worked alongside him for ten years on the clerkship committee at Yale Law School. Her daughter began a clerkship where it started a clerkship by the summer with him before he was nominated to the supreme court. Set for my own daughter. There's no judge I would trust more than Brett having ought to be in one form. Or clerks words, a teacher, advocate, and friend. And there is there is all of this. This entire time. There has there is no evidence to show otherwise there has been no one. There's no evidence to show otherwise that his character is not this. There's one person who made a claim. And he vehemently denies it. Now, here's the other thing. You remember yesterday a classmate of Kavanagh's tried to come out and say, oh, well, she deleted the tweet since then she came out in a tweet and said, oh, I'm certain that. He's you know, this is what her name is Christina king Miranda. This is what she tweeted, I graduated from Holton arms new both Brett Cavanaugh, an Mark judge Kristine blazey Ford was a year or so behind me. I remember her I signed this letter. The incident was spoken about for days afterwards in school cavenaugh would stop should stop line and own up to apologize. Oh, we'll guess what? She actually had to backtrack because journalists began investigating and they discovered that. No. So she deleted the tweet. And then she backtracked and said, hi all deleted. She said I deleted. She talked about why she deleted the tweet. And then she says, I will not be doing. Any more interviews to clarify my post. I do not have firsthand knowledge of the incident. I don't have more to say. So you don't you didn't know. And you just what I think I think some of these people I think she just signed this letter to get attention for herself. And then broadcasted on Twitter. She put it out there. She retweeted. Julia Louis Dreyfuss, and who who had signed it. She re tweeted it and really put herself out there. Like look at me. Look at me. Me too is not look at me, by the way. That's not don't don't don't mistake that movement. Don't mistake me to for look at me. And I feel like that's what she did. I don't know. The thing is is there's no evidence to support. These claims. I'm present evidence. I go where the truth gusts present some evidence of these claims now apparently Grassley even said that they would they would dispatch a team to go. If if Christine four doesn't want to go in a closed door session and testify before the Senate Judiciary, or she doesn't want to go publicly to do it. As Cavanaugh has said, he would then they said they dispatched a team to her to talk Monday. But here's the thing all of the Democrats who who are hoping that Susan Collins Jeff flake would be on their side or now losing because Susan Collins said I hope that Dr Ford will reconsider and testify before the Senate Judiciary, Monday committee is offered to hold either public or private session Jeff flake he'd said that he would vote. No afford wasn't given a hearing. Now says the committee has done its job. She needs. To testify Monday. So you guys are gonna do. And I think that's pretty significant. You you can't just accuse someone like this. And and then not. Present information that can be investigated. Do you see this? That's that's what's that's what's unfortunate. And Meanwhile, I don't know. This. She she needed to. File a police report. This is interesting one of the hose, this is one of the reporters, I think with CNN had said Christine Ford contacted her state Senator and Email the Washington Post tip line, which is a great way to get attention. If you're not if you want attention, it's weird that you would you know? Go go after the Washington Post if you don't want to get your name out there took a polygraph. Which by the way is inadmissible in court. Nobody knows who administered it and went public with her story. What other avenue would people preferred her to make my friend? John Davis says if only there was some sort of official local governmental body with the exclusive authority and expertise to investigate whether criminal allegations within a particular state or true and warrant criminal charges within that state. Yeah. And if only there was some way to memorialize a particular way to to take a statement under oath to ensure that the statement is taken seriously by those tasked with enforcing our laws. Alas these process, these processes don't exist silicon to newspapers and politicians is the only option. The thing is is that. This is the way that this has been handled is drawn questions about its credibility. And that's hopefully, people realize this. Yes. You wish they will. You think they would?

Launched the hedge fund omega advisers he has been voted onto the institutional investors all America research team. For many years in a row let's. Talk a little bit about something we discussed the last time you were on and we had a kind of dance around because it. Was still an. Open live issue You had a run in with the SEC. Tell us a little bit about that what was. It like when you first learned they were. Looking into omega and how did it. Affect your your trader let me just say this I entered into it's called the no admit and. No deny agreement so I don't admit. I did anything right or wrong with whatever the hell between last time you were here you're pretty adamant you didn't do anything wrong Yeah I, said I'll repeat this legal legalese. Below you're no. Deny I totally didn't appreciate the power of the. SEC they're abusive. Nature And the problems. With the system where they served me no broad scale investigation to all sorts. Of trading, new investigation to trade a one. Company and basically. We told them when we received the subpoena that. Withdraw the subpoena I guess I wanna make the point every step along the way with the had the chance to operate in a proper manner in my opinion. Proper manner they basically rejected they try you warn adversarial you a very cooperative To sit, down let me. Explain this to you this, is really very simple On the way they. Rejected it like they wanted to inflict maximum damage, which they succeeded in doing so we get to subpoena and I tell my. Tell them with two other subpoena, a meet with you answer, all. Your questions if you don't like. The answer, you can, reinstate, to. Subpoena right and you have nothing to lose they refused they say responsive subpoena so I spent a couple of million dollars or more, respond to the subpoena and basically. They then in my lawyer My lawyer basically tells. Me you ruined the man's business we've stayed trading there's, no, insider trading here it's unfair and they went down to Washington and basically the guy at, the SEC says well Mr. Koopman. Wants to settle we'll take a five year boy from the industry the mission guilt affected emission Gill and a. Ten million dollar fine and I told my lawyers, look you tell them whatever somebody from Harvard and Yale Law School tells them.

Guilt knowing is not deny no time out and give us four point nine million dollars by his lawyers say congratulations And I say what did. I win we don't have, losing, pays in America right the government has sovereign immunity I can't sue them and they basically are using taxpayer money to fund their. Piccadilly does and so my advocacy after a close up, omega, become a family office we should have a losing party pays system because we're happy to be a speculative Legos throat against. The wall Mm attributed to my lawyers which a factual in a court of law I don't want any problems with the SEC. By lawyers, say, congratulations you one if we go to trial, we think. Ninety percent probably. Gonna win but of, course you let me finish knives, and probably gonna win okay the, ten percent chance you don't wait has nothing to. Do with the. Case is because you're rich is because you run a hedge, fund and. Because your. Former Goldman Sachs partner juries don't like, guys like. You I said listen I'm saying fiber kids to college in Newark New Jersey they. Don't care they don't. Like guys like if.

"George Mason law school. So I am the parent of, one of the panelists And in part because. I got to know the judge through my daughter's clerkship he came and get. Delivered a convocation speech at graduation at our law school I should say that in thirty two years at, George Mason having listened to thirty two graduation speeches olive which accept one where canned. Speeches that could have been delivered at any law school I was forever impressed by the care taken by judge. Cavenaugh in particular rising and researching talking about George Mason my question to the panel is Although I myself, also attended Yale Law School as did three of the people here what are the. Chances that judge Cavanaugh will emulate the only Justice on the supreme court who hires clerks who are not from. The Ivy league Chicago or Stanford Interested in knowing your thoughts about that since you know the man As the non Yale grad And I think the judge Cavanaugh you'll see him look at applicants and hire applicants. Were wide variety of schools the judge takes a clerk hiring very seriously and, when we were all clerks I think we can talk about the process where he didn't just rely on us to kind of sift through the resumes and hand him. Who we thought was best he wanted. To see all of them he wanted to look at them all himself and and he really did take time to do the due diligence in talking to professors, and reading letters of recommendation reading the entire packet to make sure that he understood who individuality were. In their strengths and weaknesses Puerto Wilkinson think he cares a lot about making sure that he gets people is, Ramon said from diverse backgrounds, not just gender and race but also socioeconomic backgrounds. Schools and diversity of experience and so I think you'll continue to see him as a Justice continue to hire A lot of women and also people from schools outside the Ivy leagues A couple more questions My name is Cammy, by the Pakistani specter, and my question is, if you know cameras, personal thought about this Separating children from their parents and Muslim ban kind of issues because if, you know his talked about this it would tell? How he, would react, in his on the discipline code about does, he had leaning toward, more rule of law, he is you know Think, about what media think about international community think about? Human rights, issues thanks I think I probably speak for all. Of us that I I haven't had any conversations with Kevin on that topic I think I would just say, generally that I'm confident if that. Issue to come before him as a Justice he would look at the law he would look at all the issues that you mentioned and everything that both. Sides have to say on it and do his best to. Apply the law but I haven't had a, personal conversation with him about. It Hi my name's Mendome interning in the house just going on the last question regarding clerking out of IV non Ivy league schools as a student. About to start law school at a non Ivy league school What are your tips or suggestions to of things to do besides for getting good grades in all the classic stuff To catch the eye of someone such as judge cabin on other. Esteemed judges throughout the country specific questions so offer a couple of quick tips and then we'll take one more cabin I learned the names of the judges My first pro tip I think it helps to get. To know your professors many law, schools are quite large and when you are, applying for a clerkship there are more qualified applicants that can possibly be hired just because of the small number of judges. And clerks in chambers and I think it really visit big difference when you have a recommendation from somebody who, can not just say I got an, a. in your class but this person has engaged with neon legal. Questions throughout the semester and they've shown, curiosity in these areas and I know how serious they are and can say a little bit more about your interest in the law and how you approach legal questions, and your local ability and those letters really. Make a big difference. Good luck to you have. A question. Over here last question Thank you If you've referenced the fact that judge Cavanaugh, respect precedents I was wondering if any of you can think of any case where he is actually reversed a precedent from his court or one of the other. Circuit courts I'm not sure I have an unusual case in which he's allowed to. Actually do that because he's bound by the. Precedence of, his court and he certainly bound by the presence of the supreme court there. May be examples where he's been on an unbound panel where he would do that I do think I do think it's interesting you know he's made some comments Talking about Justice Scalia where he's he's talked about some precedents where he thinks Justice Scalia may have been right I. Don't know that he said he's endorsed overturning them but the case that comes to mind was a case from two thousand four, involving the detention of a. US citizen who was I think fighting alongside Al, Qaeda and, he was he was captured in the court held over a dissent from Justice Scalia that it was okay for the. The executive branch with President Bush then in charge to detain this you a US citizen under the authorization to use force that was an acted after September eleventh Justice Scalia dissented. From that and in a speech that judge Cavanaugh gave he you know he sort of indicated that he thought Justice Scalia's dissent had a, lot of a lot of strong points to it and I. Think that reflects reflected his you that US citizens have a special place in our constitutional. System and that it's important to protect liberty. And protect, liberty even in wartime Even when other threats to national security I but even in that case I'm. Not sure he suggested overturning that precedent and and my guess is he probably not going to be you know speculating about what, he'll he'll wanna be overturning. And not overturning I in the weeks to comment, on his, hearing Roman Martinez live at the Heritage Foundation just add to that I certainly ride maybe someone can remind me cases. In which he has said I think this precedent might be wrongly decided by I'm applying in here anyway you know so I he the man has a healthier stacked for president Sara ad in the DC circuit there's a case called iron swear if, a panel thinks that a previous decision of, the DC circuit should be. Overturned they can ask our colleagues whether, they can overturn it in that panel decision and I don't want to, put an exact, number but I believe. Judge Cavanaugh has never or almost very sparingly ever use that I don't remember it my term I don't remember in no cases. Come to mind where he, tried to overturn DC circuit precedent one of. His panel decisions and he's also taken a broad view to, the importance, of supreme court precedent some courts will say only the holding is what is binding on us but some of, the language, explaining the holding it's not. Binding and judge Cavanaugh. Has several opinions where he says it's not my job to parse what the, what the supreme court says what what's binding not. Binding supreme court precedent needs. To be? Taken very, seriously, and he applies it Puerto Wilkinson back pants This is a repair she's been radio programming from Thursday.

"So there were constitutional issues there and even liberal law professors like akilah more from yale law school said that it's very reasonable suspicion at brad kavanagh took when he wrote about that some years back so it's not clear to me what he has said then necessarily applies to now secondly what you're really seeing and what cavanaugh said is at the core of what he believes in which is this idea that if you really want to protect freedom and you wanna have accountability you have to respect the limits on government power in the constitution which includes the separation of powers i got less than a minute left what are the stakes here how will replacing anthony kennedy was a distinguished jurists but with a more conservative a consistent conservative how will that shape the court potentially for the next generation well any supreme court confirmation is transformative this is a court that is often equally divided at the end of the day i think what's really important to remember is that there's been a movement on the court toward being more originalist and textualist in other words the idea that law means something it has determined that meeting and that's the trend that i think this president wants to continue mr leo thank you thanks for coming on and we will be watching the president's announcement in just are you a little worried about eight days are you ready to go at eight days i think the president and his team at the white house will be ready got that's fortunate because if we go on the air and he's not there it would be it would be embarrassed it would be rather embarrassed joins me now from springfield illinois the number two democrat in the senate dick durbin senator welcome let's start with the democrats basic positions since justice kennedy announced his retirement this week here is your leader in the senate senator chuck schumer americans should make it clear that they will not tolerate a nominee chosen from president trump's preordained blissed now senator donald trump told the voters that he was gonna pick his nominees from that list it was a big issue in the campaign donald trump one isn't he entitled just like barack obama was entitled to have a legitimately qualified nominee approved by the senate well of course us every president would be but you just had a man on on your show mr leo who has an extraordinary position he is involved not only in the selection process he is key to it when the white house chose neal gorsuch they didn't call mr gorsuch judge gorsuch tell him they called mr leo and they said would you like to call judge gorsuch and telling the good news he's going to be the president's nominee that's what's going on here the federalist society is going through a clearance process make no mistake they make sure before any name really reaches the finals but let me just ask you so what i mean the fact is the federal society has vetted these people they are all distinguished jurists there obviously conservative what you don't like that how can you say anybody on is on that list is out i didn't say that is this i think well i can tell you this i think the chris wallace second debate effects when it was a question too then candidate donald trump nailed it the president is looking for someone who will overturn roe versus wade but even equally important he's looking for someone on the court who will make sure that they rule that the affordable care act's protection of those with pre existing conditions unconstitutional that'll mean thousands.
