Nina Totenberg: ‘They don’t have to follow Supreme Court precedent anymore’

CJR · Nina Totenberg: ‘They don’t have to follow Supreme Court precedent anymore’

 

Nina Totenberg has covered the Supreme Court for five decades. On this week’s Kicker, the NPR reporter sits down with Kyle Pope, editor and publisher of CJR, to discuss a court she says is more conservative than it has been since the late 1920s and early 1930s, and what happens next in light of the leak of the Roe v. Wade decision. 

Totenberg is NPR’s legal affairs correspondent. Her book Dinners with Ruth: A Memoir on the Power of Friendships comes out in September and is available for preorder now.
