President Hall on CNN

Recommended Posts

Today, 6/26, President Hall was on CNN Live talking about the end of this current term for the Supreme Court. He was talking about what the court will do and the future of the court. Im a senior in American History and it kinda was cool seeing him on tv. This guy is smart when it comes to Supreme Court History. He's offering a class this semester, i know Brian is taking it. I may take it as well.


But thats the little tid bit for today

As an attorney, and I am curious to hear Statefan's thoughts on this, my first question of Hall in the class you speak of is this: How can the Court back up it's recent decision to expand the powers of eminent domain to private enterprises via a public use loophole? Second, how can this decision of the court be overturned if it causes turmoil (the most likely end result of this decision will be little guys losing home/business' to the big conglomerates (sp?)?! I will give you one of the two answers to that question: Congress can pass an amendment which would, in effect, supersede this decision (not likely). If you can come up with the second means by which this decision can be overturned....you would be the apple of President Hall's eyes in class!

I didn't see the CNN piece. It's my understanding that one of President Hall's areas of expertise is in the history of the Supreme Court, and so I'm guessing he was on the discuss the historical significance of the term which ends today and the anticipated resignation of the Chief Justice, rathar than offering a Constitutional Law review of last week's eminent domain decision, which I have not read yet.

The class looks to be pretty interesting. It's a seminar class with only about ~20 students, once a week. I chatted with him about it and he said that we would go in-depth with a few dozen major cases from about the mid 20th century to the present. He said instead of focusing on the impact of the case, the reasoning for the decision, etc. (the normal stuff you usually learn about SC cases), we would concentrate on the laywers' approach to each case. Should be pretty tough from what I've heard, but I think it should be pretty interesting and very informative.
