Listen to the Episode


From The Official Website:

Today’s Rapid Response Friday follows up on the State of Florida and… sadly… returns one last time to the story of Brett Kavanaugh and the ethics complaints lodged against him and referred to the Tenth Circuit. Oh, and we give you real stuff you can do to make a positive difference! You have to listen!

We begin with a follow-up to Tuesday’s episode where we break some news regarding the Democratic Party’s lawsuit in Florida to extend registration for voting in the 2018 midterms before checking in on the Common Cause/League of Women Voters lawsuit we first discussed on Episode 216.

Then it’s time to tackle the ethics complaints filed against Brett Kavanaugh and referred out by Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts to the Court of Appeals for the Tenth Circuit.

Finally, we end with an all new Thomas Takes The Bar Exam #97 regarding the tort of negligent misrepresentation. Thomas needs to go 4-for-4… can he do it? You’ll have to listen and find out!
