It was a slow day at the Supreme Court today, but our hosts are here to give us a breakdown of the latest orders. In a concurring opinion on Monday, Justice Clarence Thomas tore into the Supreme Court’s order in Biden v. Knight First Amendment Institute at Columbia University, which involves a government official’s control of his own Twitter account. Per Sarah, the purpose of Thomas’ concurring opinion is to determine whether social media platforms are “common carriers, whether they are places of public accommodation, or nothing.” Stay tuned to hear David and Sarah discuss a lawsuit involving Thomas Jefferson High School for Science and Technology and the GOP’s legislative blowback against corporate wokeness.
