Katie Barrett Wiik Participates as “Big New U.S. Supreme Court Decisions” Panelist at Minnesota CLE

Last week, Katie Barrett Wiik joined Mahesha Subbaraman (Subbaraman PLLC) on a panel to discuss “Adhering to, or Overturning, Precedent – Diving Into the Justices’ Decision-Making During the U.S. Supreme Court’s Current Term.” The session, moderated by Erica Holzer (Maslon LLP), was focused on the concept of stare decisis, and unpacked several recent decisions issued during the 2018-19 Supreme Court term that either overturned longstanding high court precedent, or where the Court considered but declined to do so. The panelists discussed the Justices’ varied views on the importance and role of stare decisis, as illustrated by these recent opinions, as well as the circumstances in which other well-settled federal precedent may be revisited in Supreme Court terms to come. 

This session and the entirety of Minnesota CLE’s “Big New U.S. Supreme Court Decisions” program can be viewed as a webcast series at
