Supreme Court Review
As Justices Open New Term, Columbia Law School Professors Take a Look Back at Some of Last Year's Major Cases and Preview What's Next at the High Court
New York, October 6, 2014—The U.S. Supreme Court issued some high-profile opinions last term in cases involving sovereign debt, access to contraception, the president’s power to make recess appointments, and the Fourth Amendment, but many of those decisions left open questions that are likely to generate follow-up litigation, a panel of Columbia Law School professors explained at the Center for Constitutional Governance’s second annual Supreme Court review at the law firm of Paul, Weiss, Rifkind, Wharton & Garrison on Sept. 29.
|(l-r) Professors Anthea Roberts, Daniel Richman, Suzanne Goldberg, and Gillian Metzger|

Kellner Professor of Law; Anthea Roberts, who holds a joint appointment as professor of law at Columbia Law School and associate professor at the London School of Economics; and Suzanne B.
