Assessing what’s next for the Supreme Court

James Morrison
Delaware Public Media

An already partisan and polarized election season saw a new, unexpected issue emerge.

The death of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg leaves a vacancy on the Supreme Court with a little more than month before Election Day

The decision to try to fill that seat immediately, and President Trump’s choice to replace the liberal Ginsberg – conservative Amy Coney Barrett – created new battle lines and have implications for cases heard in the new term and years to come.  

Widener Univ. Delaware Law School professor and H. Albert Young Fellow in Constitutional Law John Culhane joins us to discuss the Supreme Court vacancy and what lies ahead.
