First story on today’s show is the Chauvin motion for downward departure. The Judge said up to 30 years, Chauvin countered with “…how about a firm talking-to?” Andrew breaks down the (mostly terrible) arguments. Then, we talk about a conservative cancel culture story – a Stanford Law student put up an obviously satirical and hilarious flier roasting the Federalist Society and then was punished by the school. Listen for the details and some history on campus free speech!
