New York Times Supreme Court Correspondent Adam Liptak joins Fresh Air to talk about the recent ‘Hobby Lobby’ case, its larger implications, and some of the other major decisions the court handed down this term:
"This is really a tale of two courts. If you focus on the decisions we’ve mostly talked about, they’ve mostly been quite divided and along predictable lines. If you step back and look at the whole landscape, about two-thirds of the decisions were unanimous. As we’ve discussed, some of that unanimity is fake because the rationales are so different—but not all of it. This really was a term in which the court came together in ways we haven’t seen in the nine years that [Justice] John Roberts has been in charge."
