NPR News Special: Supreme Court Rulings Wrap-Up

It's been a busy week for the Supreme Court of the United States. The Court is finishing its year with rulings on three major cases:  affirmative action in college admissions, the pre-clearance requirements of the 1965 Voting Rights Act and the status of gay marriage (Prop 8 and DOMA).

WNIJ brings you a special NPR News report analyzing the Court's decisions and implications. Join host Linda Wertheimer with guests Ron Elving, Senior Washington Editor; Nina Totenberg, Legal Affairs Correspondent; Tom Goldstein, publisher of and contributor to SCOTUSblog; and Michael Fauntroy, Associate Professor of Political Science at Howard University, for an hour-long special that will look at these rulings and reflect on the past year with the Court. Listen for our special Friday at 6pm on 89.5, WNIJ.
