OA15: #SaveTheInternet

In this week’s episode, we tackle a breaking legal issue:  is Andrew’s old law school buddy Ted Cruz correct that the U.S. government just “gave away the Internet?”  (Hint:  Ted Cruz is never right about anything.)  We walk you through everything you could possibly want to know about #savetheinternet.

(If you’re looking for Part 2 of “You Be The Supreme Court,” don’t worry; it’ll be back next Wednesday.)

In our intro segment, we discuss exactly what it means to get a preliminary injunction and temporary restraining order.  And in our weekly listener question segment, we (sort of) tackle Sean Zipperer’s question about FISA courts and standing.

So if you enjoy crazy hashtag conspiracies on Twitter, or if you just like hearing more dirt on Ted Cruz, either way we’re certain you’ll love this week’s Opening Arguments!
