What has brilliant writing, surprising reasoning, shade, puns, historic impact, and even their own podcast?
Why, Supreme Court dissents, of course! While necessarily written by the “losing” side, dissents are still important: They can serve as roadmaps for future challenges, persuasion for other Justices, or even catharsis for the author.
In fact, dissents often deserve as much of the limelight as majority opinions.
That’s the idea behind Dissed, the hit PLF podcast in which attorneys Anastasia Boden and Elizabeth Slattery bring these rich and intriguing legal nuggets to life.
For two seasons, the ladies have dug deep, revealing the people and stories behind important dissents from the past and present.
With a blockbuster Supreme Court docket involving red-hot issues such as civil rights, court packing, gun rights, and emergency executive powers, Season 3 will sizzle!
We are excited to kick off the new season of Dissed with our first *in-person* launch party. Please join us November 10 at Edgar Bar & Kitchen in downtown DC as we raise a toast to the Supreme Court, the future of law, and—of course—dissents.
