Listen to the Episode

From The Official Website:

Today’s deep-dive Tuesday tackles a viral oral argument before the Supreme Court in Timbs v. Indiana regarding civil forfeiture — and a delightful question (that inspired the graphic for the show notes) about whether the state can seize your Bugatti for speeding. Oh, and we check back in on the Ann Coulter v. Berkeley lawsuit that was recently settled. What happened? Listen and find out!

We begin with the Berkeley settlement, and break down exactly what the University did (and didn’t) promise to do going forward. Is this a “big win” for the right wing? (Hint: no.)

Then, it’s time to delve deeply into Timbs v. Indiana and discuss the law of civil asset forfeiture, the doctrine of proportionality, and even the concept of incorporation. Yes, it’s a crazy Civ Pro kinda day.. you won’t want to miss it!

Then, it’s time for a BRAND NEW SEGMENT — “Yodel Mountain Remembers!” We think you’re gonna love it!

Oh, and we also tackle a terrific listener question about the “apology doctrine” and the nation that made apologies famous — Canada (of course).

After all that, it’s time for the answer to Thomas Takes The Bar Exam #104 regarding government action and the warrant requirement of the Fifth Amendment.
