October 10 CCJ Town Hall: Immigration and Partisan Gerrymandering

October 12, 2017

In this episode, Dr. John C. Eastman, founding director of the Claremont Institute's Center for Constitutional Jurisprudence, is joined by Andrew McCarthy, former Assistant U.S. Attorney for New York and a contributing editor of National Review; and J. Christian Adams, General Counsel for the Public Interest Legal Foundation and member of the Presidential Advisory Commission on Election Integrity.

Eastman and his guests discuss a slate of immigration cases that were argued at the Supreme Court this month: Jennings v. Rodriquez, which addresses the important constitutional question of whether it is permissible for immigration officials to detain criminal aliens for more than six months while deportation proceedings are underway, or must they be released into the interior of the country; and Sessions v. Dimaya, which addresses whether the statutory language, “crime of violence,” that triggers deportation of aliens, is unconstitutionally vague. Estman also provides an update on Trump v. International Refugee Assistance Project, the case challenging President Trump’s temporary suspension of immigration from six designated middle-eastern countries where terrorist activity is rampant. The case was scheduled to be heard this month, but it was dropped from the Court’s oral argument calendar after President Trump issued a new executive order dealing with the same subject.
 
They also discuss the important case addressing partisan gerrymandering, Gill v. Whitford, which was argued October 3, 2017.
 
Dr. Eastman is the Henry Salvatori Professor of Law & Community Service at Chapman University Fowler School of Law. He served as a law clerk with Justice Clarence Thomas in 1996-97.

September 21 CCJ Town Hall: Preview of the Supreme Court 2017-2018 Term

September 26, 2017
In this episode, join Dr. John C. Eastman, founding director of the Claremont Institute's Center for Constitutional Jurisprudence, for our September tele-town hall. Dr. Eastman will be joined by Professor Anthony T. Caso, director of the Constitutional Jurisprudence Clinic at Chapman University’s Fowler School of Law, which is sponsored by the Claremont Institute’s own Center for Constitutional Jurisprudence.
 
During this town hall, they will give a brief overview of the upcoming 2017-2018 Supreme Court term. And, will also address a couple of the more controversial issues in the legal news over the past month: President Trump’s pardon of former Mariposa County, Arizona sheriff Joe Arpaio, and Attorney General Sessions’ announcement that the President is rescinding President Obama’s illegal DACA program. Aditionally, they will explore the pace of confirmations by the U.S. Senate of executive and judicial officers since President Trump came into office.  
 
On September 25, the Supreme Court returns to work with its “long conference,” considering all the petitions filed over the summer asking the Court to review cases. We will learn which cases are “in,” and which are “out,” a few days later. The Court then officially begins its new term the following Monday, October 2. After more than a year of 4-4 split decisions on controversial matters following Justice Scalia’s death, new Justice Neal Gorsuch will be there to potentially break any lingering deadlock, and the Court appears poised to hear a slew of important matters.
