Supreme Court Term in Review: Reconciling Our Losses and Wins
July 6, 2023
Another Supreme Court term has come to a close. This year, the court delivered major decisions on voting rights, free speech, Indigenous sovereignty, and racial justice, among other issues. The ACLU was involved in cases throughout the term and in many ways, our wins exceeded our expectations. However, in the last two days of the term, the court dropped decisions overturning affirmative action, codifying discrimination in the name of “free speech,” and blocking President Biden’s student loan forgiveness plan.
Here to help us reconcile our wins and losses and break down the term is returning favorite, David Cole, ACLU’s national legal director.
