In re Robocallers

Posted: June 14, 2020 by Nazim in Episode!

Listen, if the prospect of Colorado Dept. of State v. Baca (i.e. can electoral college voters do whatever they want) brings you anxiety, allow this episode to calm you down.  Recorded in two parts because we lost part of the first version, the legal analysis has the weight and experience of two guys who talked about this twice over the weekend.  Law starts at (12:00).

Teleconferencin’ Aint Easy

Posted: May 10, 2020 by Nazim in Episode!

If there’s one overarching theme this week, it’s that technology is not easy for lawyers.  Brett and Nazim discuss US Agency for International Development v. Alliance for Open Society International (regarding free speech and government coercion), while also discussing how oral argument must go over ZOOM.  Also, we had our own technology issue, so there’s a small echo for Brett’s track that was mostly edited out, but you can hear it from time to time.  Law starts basically from the start.
