In this episode, Eric J. Segall, Ashe Family Chair Professor of Law at Georgia State University College of Law, discusses his forthcoming essay "John Roberts: Hubris-in-Chief." Segall reflects on the tension between Chief Justice Roberts's reputation as an institutionalist and the radical positions he has taken in many cases. He argues that this reflects a hubris that is bad for the Supreme Court as an institution, and reflects poorly on Roberts. In particular, Roberts's opinions in cases involving affirmative action and voting rights adopt aggressive positions and distort precedent in order to reach a desired result.
