Ep. 2 – “Fix the Court”

Summary:  Episode 2 of the Blacklines & Billables podcast: our interview with founder and executive director of “Fix the Court,” Gabe Roth.  Fix the Court is a national, non-partisan organization dedicated to Supreme Court reform—intending “to take the Court to task for its lack of accountability and transparency and to push Chief Justice John Roberts and the court’s eight associate justices to enact basic yet critical reforms to make the court more open and honest.”

In this pod, we explore the Fix the Court’s signature “Fixes” (listed below) and discuss why the Fixes are important, how they might work, and the implications are for American judiciary.  To learn more about Fix the Court, visit its website at at fixthecourt.com.

Additional Show Notes:

I met at Gabe at the Legal Hackers International Summit 2017, and though his brand of “legal innovation” is slightly different than that which we usually cover, I was excited to learn more about Fix the Court and keen to sit down with him and discuss the initiative for our followers.
