Trump’s Supreme Court Nominee

Listen 48:56

Guests: Laura Little, Michael Moreland

President Trump nominated Federal Appeals Court Judge Brett Kavanaugh to replace Justice Anthony Kennedy on the Supreme Court.  If confirmed, Kavanaugh will give conservatives on the court a definitive 5-4 majority. This hour, we will discuss Kavanaugh’s record, the politics behind Trump’s pick, and what it might mean for the direction of the court on issues like abortion, health care, gun rights, voting rights, civil rights and big business. Our guests are LAURA LITTLE, professor of law at Temple University School of Law, and MICHAEL MORELAND, professor of law and religion at Villanova University School of Law.
