Revisiting Roberts’ Rocky Road

In light of recent developments at the U.S. Supreme Court, we’ve decided to offer a revisit to a classic episode of Lawyer 2 Lawyer— in fact, the very first episode of this show. Nearly 17 years ago, when this show began, many things were different. For one, this show wasn’t even called Lawyer 2 Lawyer; it was Coast to Coast.
Our first episode, entitled Roberts’ Rocky Road, discussed the nomination to the U.S. Supreme Court of John Roberts, then a DC Circuit Appeals Court Judge, now Chief Justice. Even then as now, a great deal of attention was focused on the possible overturning of Roe v. Wade. But as we approach that likely reality with the Dobbs case, and as we see more and more attention focused on both the legitimacy of the Supreme Court and the role of its Chief Justice, we here at Lawyer 2 Lawyer want to re-share this conversation from our archives to provide you a glimpse into the talking points surrounding his nomination in 2005.
