Ejusdem Generis

June 29, 2024

In This Episode:

Barb McQuade hosts #SistersInLaw to discuss the SCOTUS ruling in Fischer, which threw out obstruction charges faced by a J6 rioter, explain why it should not affect Trump’s case, and look ahead to the Court’s immunity decision. Then, the #Sisters cover the overturning of the Chevron deference doctrine, decode how it will impact our rights and the ability of Congress to enact legislation, and spell out how the decision reinforces the death of stare decisis.  They also examine Julian Assange’s guilty plea to violating the Espionage Act at WikiLeaks, explore the similarities to Trump’s MAL case, and weigh whether Assange’s actions were an act of journalism relatable to publishing the Pentagon Papers.
