William Mercer, a lecturer in the Department of History, was a guest panelist for a radio show on Santa Monica, California-based KCRW-FM, 89.9 this summer. The panel assessed the US Supreme Court at the end of its most recent term. Mercer and other panelists noted that with all nine members now in place for the next term, the Supreme Court is expected to decide cases that could impact the lives of many Americans. They discussed what to expect from the newest Justice, Neil Gorsuch, who has already taken some very conservative stands. Listen to the episode online.
