Focus on Privacy, Technology in New Supreme Court Term

Monday, October 04, 2010

The Supreme Court begins a new term today, facing a list of cases with several dominant themes: personal privacy, the rights of corporations, and just how far the far-flung boundaries of First Amendment protection extend when offensive speech is involved. The court has three female justices for the first time in its history, although newly-appointed Justice Elena Kagan will need to recuse herself from several cases she had pursued or submitted in her former role as Solicitor General.

George Washington University law professor Jeff Rosen joins us for a look ahead to this year's term.
