Supreme Podcast show

Summary: This week the Court issued two opinions, heard four cases in oral arguments and did not grant certiorari, review, to any new cases. We begin with a review of the oral arguments this week in Arizona v. United States, a controversial case concerning federal preemption and how far border states that bear a disproportionate burden of the costs of illegal immigration may go in battling illegal immigration in their state. We next consider the court's opinion and decision in a case we previously covered on the program - Wood v. Milyard - wherein the Court decides whether when a state in habeas corpus case affirmatively states that is does not challenge but does not concede a timeliness challenge may a federal appellate court raise and decide the issue on its own.
