This week we hear from Professor Zachary Clopton (Cornell Law), who explains why, before reaching standing questions in pending Emolument Clause suits against the present administration, parties and courts must clearly determine the threshold question of justiciability.

Then, Sophia Lakin and Theresa Lee (ACLU) will visit to unpack their Federal Advisory Committee Act claims just filed against President Trump's Committee on Election Integrity.

Don't forget to take the attached 10-question test to receive your CLE credit for tuning in.
