OA140: DACA and More!

Today’s episode features a deep dive in the latest legal news surrounding the DACA program.

First, the guys tackle a listener question regarding the difference between the James Damore case against Google and Colin Kaepernick’s grievance against the NFL.  Are the two cases similar?

After the main segment, Andrew walks us through a case that was just argued before the Supreme Court, McCoy v. Louisiana, in which a lawyer conceded his client’s guilt during a capital murder trial over the client’s objections.

Finally, we end with an all-new Game of Thrones-themed Thomas Takes the Bar Exam (Question #59) involving lightning, wildfires, an experienced woodsman, and an errant crossbow bolt.  Remember that you can play along with #TTTBE by retweeting our episode on Twitter or sharing it on Facebook along with your guess.  We’ll release the answer on next Tuesday’s episode along with our favorite entry!
