S1:E4 Crisis of Legitimacy

Original Air Date: Oct 13, 2023

Following the Senate blocking of Merrick Garland’s nomination and the subsequent confirmations of Justices Gorsuch, Kavanaugh, and Barrett in the era of Trump, the Court moves decisively to the right. With highly controversial rulings such as the Dobbs decision to overturn Roe v. Wade, the Court of the 2020s increasingly faces charges of extreme partisanship as its relatively young, deeply conservative majority appears set to shape American life over the coming decades. Series finale.
