With the high court now on its summer break, we take a peek at next term, when another Hogan Lovells associate will be at the justices’ lectern. And we look back at an opinion by Justice Clarence Thomas that suggests a podcast may have influenced the court’s recent death penalty decision, Flowers v. Mississippi. Plus: the summer break might not be much of a break, as the Justice Department is expected to take Trump-related decisions to the court. Feedback and tips are welcome: Thanks for reading!
