Today on Your Call: What do the Supreme Court’s rulings reveal about the future of the Court?


On today's Your Call we'll talk about under-covered Supreme Court decisions.  In addition to the rulings on same-sex marriage, voting rights, and affirmative action, the Court also issued decisions that will make it more difficult to sue corporations and win discrimination claims.  Another decision protects pharmaceutical companies against people who say they were harmed by defective generic drugs. How will US law and society be changed by some of these decisions?  Join us at 10am Pacific or post a comment here. It's Your Call with Rose Aguilar, and You.
