In this episode, we discuss the latest news in one of the Lex Rex Institute’s biggest cases, as we represent a group of parents from the Los Alamitos Unified School District in a dispute against the district. You can find out more information about the case and contribute to the legal fund at https://www.givesendgo.com/G3PCB.
After that, we continue our “Summer of the Revolutions” series by examining the specific ways that the U.S. Constitution was designed to correct flaws with the Articles of Confederation. Along the way, we take a detour to discuss Edmund Burke’s analysis of the French Revolution and explain why it remains relevant for political philosophy today.
Finally, we return to Captain Kangaroo Court to bring you the tale of the Roving Judge Gang of Indiana – hear what happens to a group of intoxicated judges who pick a fight in the parking lot of an Indianapolis White Castle – and Alexander tells the story of perhaps the worst judge he’s ever met. (She thinks the word “upon” is too fancy to use in a legal brief.)
