Jeffrey Rosen, host of “We the People,” moderates a panel discussion at the Aspen Institute’s Ideas Festival about the Supreme Court’s momentous recent term.
From same-sex wedding cakes to voting rights to gerrymandering to public unions, the latest term was full of news-making decisions, even when the Justices decided not to decide.
Note: This event was held several hours before Justice Anthony Kennedy announced his retirement from the Court.
Next week on “We the People,” former Kennedy clerks will be joining us to discuss Justice Kennedy's legacy and the ways in which he shaped the Court.
