Our guest this Tuesday (7/13 at 6 pm) is Stephen Vladeck, the Charles Alan Wright Chair in Federal Courts at the University of Texas School of Law. He is a nationally recognized expert on the federal courts, constitutional law, national security law, and military justice. Steve has argued cases before the US Supreme Court, and is CNN’s lead Supreme Court analyst. This is our annual wrap-up of the court’s recently concluded session. If you’ve ever wondered about the intersection between politics and jurisprudence, be sure not to miss this episode. We’re also joined by regular guest Jim Harrington, retired founder of the Texas Civil Rights Project, who offers wisdom from his own experience with the courts.
Later in the second half, Austin Sanders talks about the proposed budget for the City of Austin which was unveiled on Friday. Austin also tells us about his cover story on homelessness for the current issue of The Austin Chronicle – solid reporting on this complex if not vexing issue.
