The Strathmore Speakers Series and Onondaga Free Library’s May 2022 event featured Syracuse University College of Law professor Jenny Breen, who discussed the impact of the Supreme Court’s recent rulings on American politics. Looking beyond the well-publicized verdict in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, Professor Breen provided analysis of several of the Court’s lesser-known, yet equally consequential rulings. The deeply significant Moore v. Harper, was also be addressed.
