Shook Partner Reviews the 2019-2020 U.S. Supreme Court in White Paper

Shook Partner John Barkett has written a review of the 2019-2020 U.S. Supreme Court. In his white paper, “The Roberts Court 2019-20: Distancing from the Kennedy Era, the Roberts Era Has Begun," Barkett writes in detail about the Court’s decisions and the influence of Chief Justice John Roberts.

“The Roberts Era has indeed begun,” Barkett writes. “Now distanced from Justice Kennedy, the Chief Justice is firmly in control of this Court. And he is doing his best to protect the institutional integrity of the Court in what is otherwise a highly partisan environment.”
