“A Brief History of Court-Packing” – A Discussion with Author and Former Obama Speechwriter David Litt
The democracy you live in today is completely different from the democracy you grew up in - and the judiciary is no exception. In his new book, Democracy In One Book Or Less: How It Works, Why It Doesn't, and Why Fixing It Is Easier Than You Think, former Obama speechwriter David Litt tells a story that includes pistol-wielding Supreme Court justices, an arms dealer's court-packing plot, and a judicial branch that has been completely redesigned in the past 40 years.
Join the ACS At-Large, Arizona, Chicago, Colorado, Kentucky, Milwaukee, New York, Northeast Ohio, and Washington, DC Chapters for a discussion with Litt, in conversation with Tina Tchen, on his new book, the last four decades of conservative court packing, and restoring judicial independence.
