Roberts Court

  • The Roberts Court?seven years old, with a predominantly 5-4 conservative/liberal split?sits at the center of a constitutional maelstrom. Marcia Coyle, one of the most prestigious experts on the Supreme Court, reports on its direction under Chief Justice Roberts, as she traces the paths and resolutions of five landmark decisions on race, guns, immigration, campaign finance, and health care.

    Coyle recounts how a smart group of conservative lawyers has crafted cases with an eye towards an increasingly receptive conservative majority. She describes the long paths these cases take to reach the Court, and how their resolutions expose the political divisions among the justices: originalists v. pragmatists on guns and the Second Amendment; ?corporate money is speech? v. ?corporate money is not speech?; and state vs. federal powers in the cases of immigration and health care.

    As Bob Woodward laid bare the inner workings of the Supreme Court in The Brethren (in the transition from Warren to Burger), Coyle demonstrates how the direction of the Roberts Court is powerfully affecting the nation?s political argument and its future.
