Justice in the Balance

  • This is a past program

Amid gridlock over a replacement for Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia, we examine recent decisions from an evenly divided court with Linda Greenhouse, lecturer at Yale Law School, contributing columnist for the New York Times, and coauthor of the recently published The Burger Court and the Rise of the Judicial Right. Moderated by Ian Masters, journalist, documentary filmmaker, and KPFK 90.7 FM radio host. 

A book signing with Linda Greenhouse will follow.
