The Breyer Scale, Revisited

Posted: September 25, 2016 by Nazim in Uncategorized

This week’s episode continues our weekly focus on individual Justices, with this week’s Justice du jour being Stephen Breyer.  Brett and Nazim discuss Breyer’s background and cover influential death penalty cases over the last four decades to see if there is traction on finding the death penalty unconstitutional.  Lastly, the current pending case of Moore v. Texas is covered, which asks whether or not the Court has the power to overturn State standards for instituting death that appear at face value to be out of touch.
