As the battle for the nation’s courts intensifies, so too does the battle against the courts. In recent weeks we have heard members of Congress and the public alike condemning the courts, calling for court‐​stripping legislation, and even urging that judges be impeached when they hand down unpopular decisions. Please join us for a sober discussion about the role of the courts under our Constitution.
