The Supreme Court v. the Constitution?
The first Claremont Discourse Constitution Day panel, held in the fall of 2005, addressed the question, “Is it possible for the Supreme Court to render an Unconstitutional Decision?” With the latest nominations to the court and recent decisions, such as on the travel ban and rights based on religious belief, the same question seems worth re-visiting in the fall of 2018. Join Claremont faculty to consider the direction the Supreme Court is heading in: Has it reached a new level of partisanship? And with no Justice to fill the middle, would it be an exaggeration to posit that this Court will be battling the Constitution itself?
