SHORT CIRCUIT PODCAST

Episode 206: Shades of Governmental Immunity

The Institute for Justice just issued a new report, 50 Shades of Government Immunity, about what happens when you go to state–not federal–court after the government violates your rights. The report grades every state for its access to justice as an alternative to the federal judiciary. Unfortunately, with just a couple exceptions, it doesn’t paint a pretty picture.

Two IJ attorneys, Anya Bidwell and Patrick Jaicomo, and Professor Alex Reinert of Cardozo Law, join Short Circuit to discuss the report and Professor Reinert’s related research. You’ll learn that while going to state court isn’t nearly as easy as some at the U.S. Supreme Court assume it to be, there are prospects for reform as well.
