In this episode, usual co-host, Lex Rex President, and constitutional attorney Alexander Haberbush is joined by special surprise host and Lex Rex VP of Marketing, Eric Hampton. (We’ll let the audience decide if he makes a better host than David.) They take a moment to mark the passing of Queen Elizabeth II of the United Kingdom before diving into a pair of petitions before the Supreme Court that could result in some interesting implications for criminal procedure, before returning once again to Captain Kangaroo Court for more oddities and nonsense from the world of law.

Along the way, they’ll explain why the only evidence that’s supposed to count is the evidence on the record, why Alexander might suggest that a defendant wear a bag over his head at trial, and why it’s actually not constitutional for the president to take money from the Fed to set up a parallel government.
