Covid-19 has unsettled virtually every institution in American life, and the courts unfortunately are no exception. The federal and state courthouses in Connecticut have largely closed to the public, although they remain “open for business,” at least in a virtual sense. And this judicial tumult has climbed all the way to the hallowed halls of the U.S. Supreme Court, which has indefinitely postponed oral arguments it previously scheduled for March and April 2020—including in several newsworthy cases, such as disputes about President Trump’s tax returns. But like the Postal Service, neither rain, nor snow, nor sleet, nor apparently Covid-19 will stop the Supreme Court from issuing opinions.
And so this past Monday, March 23, the court issued opinions in five cases argued earlier in its 2019 Term. Of those five, the most relevant for employment and civil rights lawyers is the court’s opinion in Comcast Corp. v. National Ass’n of African American-Owned Media (No. 18-1171).
