A look back at 2019: A tale of two terms?

Any review of a calendar year at the Supreme Court necessarily includes two different terms: the term that ends in June and the new one that begins in October and will run into the following year. But a look back at 2019, in particular, reveals two very different terms. In the wake of the June 2018 retirement of Justice Anthony Kennedy, who for many years had been the court’s “swing justice,” and the contentious confirmation hearing for Justice Brett Kavanaugh, Kennedy’s successor, the term tha...
