Brett and Nazim are two attorneys who hate being attorneys. Each week, they discuss current Supreme Court cases with the intent to make the law more accessible to the average person, while ruminating on what makes the law both frustrating and interesting. This podcast is not legal advice and is for entertainment purposes only. If anything you hear leads you to believe you need legal advice, please contact an attorney immediately

This week's episode is all about SPORTS! Brett and Nazim qualify their knowledge about college sports (including whether Nazim knows who Tim Tebow is) and then much later cover NCAA v. Alston, which asks whether regulations on student athlete benefits are a violation of anti-trust regulations. There's no timestamp because honestly it would be too h…
 
First off, you're welcome for that amazing episode title. Second, this episode covers the case of Republic of Germany v. Phillip, which covers how the Supreme Court uses the Foreign Sovereign Immunity Act to resolve property theft in the 1940s. Depending on how you view the Supreme Court, the result will probably not surprise you. Law starts at (04…
 
You may think that Star Wars and the case of Van Buren v. U.S. have nothing in common; however, this episode strives to show how the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act should have had greater impact on Princess Leia and the Resistance at large. Brett and Nazim discuss how the Court should interpret the term access, but not before revealing their favorite…
 
This week's episode involves Nazim, a Big Computer Boy, explaining the case of Google v. Oracle to Brett, a complete Luddite. In addition to explaining fair use and its application to computer language, your boys also discuss Pokemon, Jurassic Park, Akira and Nintendo to keep things extra hip and cool. The law starts at (07:20) and we're happy to s…
 
Gather round, children, to hear the story of RFRA-MAS, as told by Brett and Nazim to a live google-hangout crowd. RFRA Claus and Burwell the Elf discuss the history of RFRA, it's current application in the case of Tanzin v. Tanzir, and then take audience questions. The podcast is taking a holiday break, but will return on January 24th, 2021. Merry …
 
This week's episode covers last week's news stories involving the Supreme Court, including the election, COVID-19, the death penalty, and the census. The law starts at (08:49), but you'd miss your invitation to the Citizen's Guide to the Supreme Court Holiday Party. EDIT: a correction on what Nazim said about the impact of masks can be found here.…
 
This week's episode discusses Texas v. Pennsylvania and Kelly v. Pennsylvania, the two recent failed attempts to reverse the election through the Supreme Court. The podcast welcomes a Supreme Court expert to help analyze the heart of this issue, and then Brett and Nazim discuss Roman Catholic Diocese v. Cuomo. Law starts basically from the beginnin…
 
In this episode, Robert Fojo discusses the CDC's absurd guidelines for Thanksgiving dinner, an attempt by a group of New Hampshire Republican state legislators to open an impeachment inquiry concerning Governor Chris Sununu after his implementation of a state-wide face diaper mandate, the latest on Sidney Powell, and updates on the Trump campaign's…
 
This week's amazingly-titled episode discusses the case of Cedar Point Nursery v. Hassid, which asks whether a California law that grants labor organizers access to private property violates the Fifth Amendment. The law kinda starts at (11:00), but actually starts at (13:40), which is indicative of the legal focus in this episode.…
 
In this episode, Robert Fojo discusses, at length, Governor Chris Sununu's announcement that New Hampshire is implementing a state-wide face mask (i.e., face diaper) mandate and the mandate itself in light of the state's Coronavirus and COVID-19 data; Sidney Powell's comments concerning evidence of election fraud; and updates concerning election fr…

This week's episode covers the oral argument in California v. Texas, in which the Court once is asked to determine the Constitutionality of the Affordable Care Act. Brett and Nazim start the law at (05:00), but get into the merits of the decision at (14:06). Then somewhere towards the end Nazim reviews obscure Midwestern cherry candy.…
 
In this episode, Robert Fojo discusses Joe Biden's remarks on the Coronavirus vaccine, the effectiveness of face masks (i.e., face diapers), additional reports of voter fraud in Wisconsin and Pennsylvania in the 2020 election, the various election fraud lawsuits filed by the Trump campaign and the potential remedies courts may award, and President …
 
This week's episode eschews any legal analysis about the election and instead covers the somehow less stressful conversation of whether children can be sentenced to life in prison without parole in Jones v. Mississippi. Brett's audio is lightly wonky around minute five, but it fixes pretty quickly. The law starts at (06:17) and the Supreme Court is…
 
In this episode, Robert Fojo explains the United States Supreme Court's Friday evening emergency order directing Pennsylvania to segregate mail-in ballots that arrived after Election Day and its significance for the Trump campaign; identifies the numerous instances of voter fraud and election interference taking place in key battleground states and…
 
In this episode, Robert Fojo breaks down the current results of the November 3rd Presidential election, including events taking place in Wisconsin, Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Arizona, and explains President Trump's impending legal challenges to certain of these results and similarities to the 2000 election and Bush v. Gore.…
 
In this episode, Robert Fojo explains and discusses recent Presidential election polls, including information from Florida and Pennsylvania; the significance and benefits of the Electoral College; and the state of the Coronavirus in New Hampshire and Governor Chris Sununu's numerous measures to combat it.…
 
The boys are back, folks. This week's episode discusses the many ridiculous Voter Suppression lawsuits that have popped up over the last few weeks and whether the State action in question is valid, or just looking to stop people from voting. The law starts at (12:45), but this episode's namesake begins at (07:10). Also, our apologies for the sound …
 
Good morning. This week, Brett is joined by Gabe Roth from Fix the Court, an organization aimed at Supreme Court reform. Brett and Gabe discuss term limits, the proper role of the Supreme Court in democracy and ethical obligations of the justices. Gabe can be reached at @FixtheCourt on twitter. The regular show will return next week.…
 
It's the end of the term, so Brett and Nazim are coming at you LIVE over ZOOM, covering topics like (1) judging predictions from last year, (2) picking story lines for next year, and (3) re-visiting the whole "cutting your sandwich" debate. The Citizen's Guide to the Supreme Court will return in October 2020.…
 
In this week's episode, Brett and Nazim answer questions which include; but are not limited to, the Constitutionality of State mask regulations, the cancelled bar exam, sad sports defeats, a Federal law on masks, whether ice cream is soup, Kavanaugh one-year report card, COVID employment law, and being a terrible banquet-hall employee.…
 
This week's episode covers two administrative law decisions that were not covered in previous podcast episodes, including Selia Law v. CFPB (separation of powers concerns cut the head, but not the body of the Consumer Financial Protection Board), and Little Sisters of the Poor v. PA (Presidential interpretation of ACA which limits contraceptives do…
 
This week's podcast covers three cases involving the government, including Colorado v. Baca (the faithless electors case), US Agency for International Development v. Alliance for Open Society International (the First Amendment to international corporations case), and Land of Lincoln Mutual Health Ins. v. United States (the government is a deadbeat …
 
This week's episode covers the case of Our Lady of Guadalupe School v. Morrisey-Berru, which immunizes church schools from employment discrimination claims under the First Amendment, and also the Nevada COVID law that limits church attendance. The sound is lightly wonky in the beginning, but it doesn't continue throughout the episode. Otherwise, th…
 
Today's unnervingly straight-laced episode covers the unnervingly chaotic decision in Espinoza v. Montana Dept of Revenue, wherein the Court takes turns yelling at each other about the Free Exercise Clause, the Establishment Clause, and Montana's apparently oppressive effort to help kids go to school. Law starts from the beginning.…
 
The World's Greatest Podcast covers bias this week, as the incredibly handsome Brett and the always insightful Nazim discuss how our preexisting beliefs can affect decisions on the 9th Amendment, the Presidency, and the recent decision in Trump v. Vance (Brett did not know Mazars existed, so that case is covered more briefly). Law starts at (02:45)…
 
This week's episode asks Nazim (specifically) what he thinks about each of the strange opinions in June Medical Services v. Russo, the recent Supreme Court decision which struck down a Louisiana law which set high medical requirements for abortion clinics. The law starts at (02:20), but there's a long tangent about the theater sometime around 40 mi…
 
This episode is a tale in two-parts. The first is about Barr v. American Association of Political Consultants, which discusses whether a ban on political robo-calls violates the First Amendment. The second is Brett and Nazim discussing multiple questions about pasta. Even by our standards, there's a lot of tangents here. The law starts in earnest a…
 
Listen, if the prospect of Colorado Dept. of State v. Baca (i.e. can electoral college voters do whatever they want) brings you anxiety, allow this episode to calm you down. Recorded in two parts because we lost part of the first version, the legal analysis has the weight and experience of two guys who talked about this twice over the weekend. Law …
 
This week's episode covers the recent decisions in Kansas v. Glover (does the 4th Amendment protect against police stops to investigate suspended licenses) and Georgia v. Public.Resource.Org (does copyright law protect annotations to the Georgia Code). Come for the legal analysis, stay for the Sex in the City references. Law starts at (04:12).…
 
If there's one overarching theme this week, it's that technology is not easy for lawyers. Brett and Nazim discuss US Agency for International Development v. Alliance for Open Society International (regarding free speech and government coercion), while also discussing how oral argument must go over ZOOM. Also, we had our own technology issue, so the…
 
The Supreme Court gives us something to write home about this week, as the podcast covers cases that are dismissed on procedural grounds, and not on the merits. This includes City of Boise v. Martin (criminalizing homelessness), NY Rifle Assoc. v. NYC (criminalizing gun travel), and Trump v. Vance (bird-doggin' those tax returns). Law starts at (06…
 
Gather 'round, podcast listeners, and lend your ears to the case of CITGO Asphalt Refining Co. v. Frescati Shipping Co, a case that is as much about "safe-berth clauses" and "strict liability", as it is about sea monsters, the uncharted ocean, and famous treatise authors. This episode covers more of the latter and you gotta squint real hard to see …
 
So check it out, this episode is not as fluffy as the last few weeks, but does cover the recent case of RNC v. DNC, in which a 5-4 majority either (1) upheld Constitutional protections against tyranny, or (2) disenfranchised Democratic voters in the midst of an emergency. THE ANSWER MAY SURPRISE YOU!! Law starts at (09:10), but you'd be missing a l…
