Amarica’s Constitution-11/15/23-Moore, in Brief

The Amars’ amicus brief in Moore vs. United States is the talk of the legal ecosphere. Akhil’s co-author, Professor Vik Amar, joins us for analysis of the precedents that followed Hylton - faithful and otherwise. This tour de force of legal analysis is perfectly suited for your CLE credit. We also look at recent comments from the Supreme Court on Moore’s issues, and survey the reactions to the brief’s release. Various arguments that purport to address some of the brief’s claims have emerged: in support, in conflict, and complementary; we analyze and respond to them.
