The Legal Ease—Podcast of the Louisiana Law Review

Episode 4 of the Podcast has arrived!

Show Description

On this episode, Joe and Willie discuss some recent cases that have had the United States Supreme Court buzzing. Cases covered include G.G. V. Gloucester County School Board (transgender students and school bathrooms), Masterpiece Cakeshop v. Colorado Civil Rights Commission (wedding cake baker refusing to make cake for same sex couple), and Gill v. Whitford (political gerrymandering). We sit down in the studio with Theresa Gallion to get her take on some of these issues. Theresa is a partner in the Tampa, FL office of the Fisher Phillips law firm. She is also a double LSU graduate (B.A. 1976/ J.D. 1981). Thank you Theresa for making a meaningful scholarly contribution to your alma mater!

     Happy Halloween from the Legal Ease. On today’s episode, Willie and Joe have Professor Bill Corbett from LSU’s Paul M. Hebert Law Center to discuss recent appellate court decisions dealing with whether Title VII’s ban on sexual discrimination extends to cases involving allegations of sexual orientation discrimination. We unpack the 7th circuit’s analysis of “sex” from Hively v. Ivy Tech Cmty. Coll. of Ind. Additionally, we have 3L Mac Zentner on the show to discuss his upcoming article on the constitutionality of Louisiana’s anti-bigamy law in light of the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision in Obergefell v. Hodges. Finally, we have 3L Terrell Jordan in the studio for his segment C’Mon Judge where we discuss haunted house case law and whether the presence of ghosts should be sufficient grounds for rescinding a sale.
