Weekend Roundup

  • ICYMI, PBS's "Frontline" ran an episode this week ("Supreme Revenge") that went "inside the no-holds-barred war for control of the Supreme Court." The episode investigated "how a 30-year-old grievance" (over the Robert Bork nomination) "transformed the court and turned confirmations into bitter, partisan conflicts." Hat tip: Chris Schmidt, who also live-tweeted it.
  • The Take Care blog is hosting a symposium on Reproductive Rights and Justice Stories, edited by Melissa Murray, Kate Shaw, and Reva Siegel. Lots of great content has gone up so far.  
  • We join our friends at the Canadian Legal History blog in mourning the passing of Professor Ian Bushnell, a noted historian of the Canadian judiciary.
Weekend Roundup is a weekly feature compiled by all the Legal History bloggers.
