About this product
- DescriptionOn the eve of a presidential election that may determine the makeup of Supreme Court justices for decades to come, prominent attorney James D. Zirin argues that the Court has become increasingly partisan, rapidly making policy choices right and left on bases that have thing to do with law or the Constitution. Zirin explains how we arrived at the present situation and looks at the current divide through its leading partisans, Justices Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Sonia Sotomayor on the left and Antonin Scalia and Clarence Thomas on the right. He also examines four of the Court's most controversial recent decisions - Hobby Lobby, Obamacare, gay marriage, and capital punishment - arguing that these politicized decisions threaten to undermine public confidence in the Supreme Court.

Zirin is a leading litigator in federal and state courts around the nation, the host of the critically acclaimed television talk show, Conversations in the Digital Age, and is the author of the best-selling book, published in 2014, The Mother Court-Tales of Cases That Mattered in America's Greatest Trial Court.
