VISTAS: "Supreme Court Vistas" with Barbara Creed

Barbara’s program focuses on three cases currently pending before the US Supreme Court. She will give some background on the court. For each case, she will describe the facts and issues, lead a discussion of the case and then have the group vote on how the Court should decide the case. After the cases have been decided, Barbara will send a memo to participants on how the Court decided the cases. The three cases this year involve the following issues:

  • Whether non-unanimous criminal juries are unconstitutional
  • Whether a participant in a retirement plan who received information from the plan sponsor can claim he did not have “knowledge” of a breach of fiduciary duty because he failed to read the information
  • Whether a State’s program to use public funds to pay students’ fees at private religious schools violates the First Amendment free exercise clause
