The Supreme Court, Neil Gorsuch, and the Nuclear Option
Attorney Carter Phillips (JD ’77)
The Supreme Court has faced a whirlwind of change and controversy over the last year, first with the death of Justice Scalia and then with the election of President Trump and the actions of his Administration. Host Daniel Rodriguez talks to Carter Phillips about the current state of the Supreme Court in 2017. Their discussion includes President Trump’s nomination of Neil Gorsuch, the Democrat Party opposition during this process, and the consequences of the nuclear option, whether it’s used or not. They conclude the episode with a brief discussion of the textbook Phillips co-authored with Northwestern Law faculty, Advanced Appellate Advocacy.
