Stephen Colbert Analyzes a U.S. Supreme Court Decision

Our blog focuses on legal writing and its teaching.  When we teach, we must teach ourt students about how to interpret and apply precedent.  On a recent sow, Comedian Stephen Colbert analyzed Chief Justice Roberts' concurrence in the U.S. Supreme Court decision that will now allow corporations to make political contributions and pay for political advertising without restriction.  He turns the word "precedent" to "prece-don't" and raises the question of whether other courts could use Roberts' reasoning to overturn that decision.   Click here to see the Colbert Show clip.
