Overview

The current term at the U.S. Supreme Court looks to be a blockbuster.  The Court is considering numerous controversial and consequential cases, including disputes with high stakes for the business community, as well as cases raising important questions of constitutional law.  Mark Hiller and Erik Zimmerman of Robinson Bradshaw, both of whom clerked on the Supreme Court, will provide commentary on several of these cases including the following:

Carpenter v United States, which concerns a Fourth Amendment challenge to the government's sizure of location data for a person's cell phone.

Masterpiece Cakeshop v. Colorado Civil Rights Commission, which asks whether a bakery has a legitimate First Amendment objection against being required to sell a wedding cake to a same-sex couple.

Epic Systems Corp. v. Lewis, which concerns the enforceability of class arbitration waivers in employment contracts.

Gill v. Whitford, which presents a constituitonal challenge to partisan gerrymandering. 

Speakers

Mark Hiller and Erik Zimmerman of Robinson Bradshaw.
