CCL's Robert S. Peck told judges and appellate lawyers meeting in Austin, Texas that the current Supreme Court term will expose even more fissures between the justices on issues that have implications for the nation's political climate than last term when Justice Amy Coney Barrett joined the Court.

      In a morning session of the 2021 Appellate Judges Educational Institute, Peck joined Washington, DC lawyer Kannon Shamugam and Texas lawyer Jaime Santos in previewing, and, in some cases reviewing, October Term 2021. The discussion included cases on abortion, guns, religion, and civil rights. The four-day summit is one of the premier appellate education events each year and is sponsored by the National Judicial College.
