This episode, with former University of Chicago Law School Dean and University of Chicago Provost Geoffrey Stone, is part 1 of our Supreme Court Debrief. We discuss two cases this episode — Harris Funeral Home vs EEOC, which involved whether employers could fire transgender employees for how they sexually identify, and June Medical, which looked at whether a Louisiana law that required doctors who perform an abortion in a clinic to have admitting privileges in a nearby hospital was unconstitutional — along with Professor Stone's latest book, Democracy and Equality: The Enduring Constitutional Vision of the Warren Court.
Professor Geoffrey R. Stone is the Edward H. Levi Distinguished Service Professor at the University of Chicago. Professor Stone joined the faculty in 1973, after serving as a law clerk to Supreme Court Justice William J. Brennan, Jr. Professor Stone was appointed by President Obama to serve on the President’s Review Group on Intelligence and Communications Technologies, which evaluated the government’s foreign intelligence surveillance programs in the wake of Edward Snowden’s leaks. He has also written amicus briefs for constitutional scholars in a number of Supreme Court cases, including Obergefell v. Hodges, the marriage equality case, and Whole Woman’s Health v. Hellerstedt, the abortion case involving admitting privileges for doctors in Texas.
