Good morning and welcome to the Wednesday edition of the SCOTUS Brief. Brad Kutner here, working with Avalon Zoppo as we all continue to tread in the footsteps of the incomparable Marcia Coyle. The justices have already been busy this week, and you can read about their debate in In re Grand Jury from Monday here. Today I covered oral arguments in Glacier Northwest v. Teamsters, a dispute over union workers whose employers claim destroyed company property as part of a work protest. But don’t worry, there’s some agency authority questions in there too. We also ask how much it would take to let a SCOTUS lawyer be replaced by a robot—our guess is a lot.
Thanks for reading. We welcome feedback and tips. Contact us at [email protected] and [email protected]. And make sure you follow us both on twitter: @BradKutner and @AvalonZoppo.
