We’ve got a short one this week, but also we didn’t plan or prep much, so we have that going for us!

Tune in as Professors Vladeck and Chesney discuss the 2nd Circuit oral argument in Trump v. Vance (regarding the President’s claim of temporary immunity from criminal investigation), and a pair of important Supreme Court cert. grants (one involving the scope of the Suspension Clause, and the other giving rise to the possibility of a ruling undermining the constitutionality of the “independent” agency model (in which President’s may not remove agency heads at will). But as always there is frivolity too, so stay to the end for a take on the new Star Wars trailer as well as NBA predictions!
