This webinar included a cross-issue discussion on the sudden death of Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia and a preview of the new judicial landscape in 2016. With important cases on the environment, immigration, redistricting, voting, and workers' rights at stake, key experts explored how an evenly divided Supreme Court may fundamentally change how these issues will be decided. As the country gears up for an extended nomination fight, we may find litigation on our core issues impacted by this unique judicial environment for months.
