Without Kennedy as the Swing Vote, What's the Future of the Court?

SHARE Without Kennedy as the Swing Vote, What's the Future of the Court?

On Wednesday, on the last day of the term, Justice Kennedy announced his retirement. We look at Kennedy’s departure through the focus of his role as the swing vote; we seek to better understand why people are continuing to cross the border; we have a dispatch from Saudi Arabia where a family of women drove for the first time on Sunday; a look at the police department in Pittsburgh in light of the news that the DA has charged the officer with criminal homicide; a look at the political turmoil roiling the state of West Virginia; and using the new Sicario sequel as a lens to understand how Hollywood depicts the border.
