7th Annual Home Stretch at the Supreme Court


Thursday, May 14, 2020

Virtual Panel Discussion
Constitutional Accountability Center


CAC annually hosts its Home Stretch at the Supreme Court event the day after the Supreme Court has concluded oral arguments for the Term, but due to the COVID-19 pandemic, this year’s event will be a virtual event.

Moderated by journalist Kimberly Atkins of WBUR, our all-star panel will feature Professor Pamela Karlan from Stanford Law School, Professor Melissa Murray of New York University School of Law, Karen Tumlin of the Justice Action Center, and our own CAC Chief Counsel Brianne Gorod. The event will feature opening remarks by CAC President Elizabeth Wydra. Our distinguished experts will discuss the cases and other matters that have shaped the Term so far and look ahead to decisions yet to come. From congressional oversight battles to COVID-19’s impact on the judiciary, there is much to discuss as the Justices enter this Term’s home stretch.
