This Week Was Supreme Court Week
Even before Justice Anthony Kennedy announced his retirement, this was a momentous week at the Supreme Court, with a slim conservative majority making big decisions, including approving President Donald Trump’s travel ban. Bloomberg Opinion weighed in on all of that. And of course we also hit every angle on Kennedy’s retirement and the coming political drama over his replacement.
