Supreme Court Recap

Federal Court Access Decisions from an Eight-Member SCOTUS

The 2015 Supreme Court Term was unusual because of Justice Scalia’s unexpected death and his still-vacant seat on the Court. How did this eight-member Court rule on issues affecting access to the federal courts?

In this episode of the Advocacy Exchange, we talked with Gill Deford of the Center for Medicare Advocacy, Jane Perkins of the National Health Law Program, Gary Smith of Legal Services of Northern California, and Mona Tawatao of the Western Center on Law and Poverty to get their annual recap of the previous Supreme Court Term and its implications for access to the federal courts.
