Intelligence Squared: Debate: Should We Expand the Supreme Court?

(Rochester, NY) – Nine justices hold tremendous power. Advocates on the left see a Supreme Court out of touch with the electorate, obstructed by partisan interests, and rendered illegitimate by years of controversial appointments. But those opposed believe dramatically changing one of the three core pillars of American government would undermine the court’s legitimacy. Panelists include Dahlia Lithwick, Tamara Brummer, Carter Phillips, and Akhil Reed Amar on Intelligence Squared: Debate: Should We Expand the Supreme Court?, Sunday, November 7, 2021 at 9 p.m. on AM 1370/FM 107.5.
