2014 Supreme Court Decisions Round-Up

    3 July 2014

    On Thursday, July 3, 2014, Capital Thinking offered a condensed program focusing on the most recent U.S. Supreme Court decisions as the high court wraps up its 2014 term.

    First, host Kevin O’Neill was joined by Michael Lotito of Littler to discuss the significance of two major labor cases– National Labor Relations Board v. Noel Canning and Harris v. Quinn.

    Next, D. Lewis Clark, Jr. of Squire Patton Boggs weighed in on Burwell v. Hobby Lobby Stores, which brought together the issues of birth control, federal government, business and religion.  

    For the second half hour, we first replayed a discussion on another major Supreme Court case, Utility Air Regulatory Group v. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), which dealt with greenhouse gas emission regulatory authorities. We closed the show with a replay on Title IX compliance, the federal law that prohibits discrimination based on gender at schools that receive federal funding.
