What direction will the Supreme Court take? Next FOT

John Malcom
What will be the direction of the Supreme Court and the other federal courts after the election and inauguration of the next president? That will be the topic of tomorrow’s Faith On Trial. Our guest will be John G. Malcolm, director of the Heritage Foundation’s Edwin Meese III Center for Legal and Judicial Studies and the Ed Gilbertson and Sherry Lindberg Gilbertson senior legal fellow at Heritage.

Before being named director of the Meese Center in July 2013, John spearheaded the center’s rule of law programs. His research and writing as senior legal fellow focused on criminal law, immigration, national security, religious liberty and intellectual property.

John recently conducted an interview at the Heritage Foundation with Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas. That interview can be seen below.

The Meese Center works to educate government officials, the media and the public about the Constitution and legal principles -- and how they affect public policy. The center was founded in 2001 and overseen until early 2013 by the conservative icon whose name it bears, former Attorney General Edwin Meese III.

Join Deacon Mike Manno and Gina Noll for a discussion of the evolution of the federal courts and other issues of interest to people of faith Tuesday at 9 a.m. (central) on Iowa Catholic Radio 1150 AM, 88.4 & 94.5 FM and streaming on and on our own radio app that you can download from the app store – its free!
