Neil Gorsuch Is a Snake—and We Almost Missed It

The 2020 Supreme Court decision in Bostock v. Clayton County wasn't the win for trans people that we needed.

In a new episode of Boom! Lawyered, Imani and Jess are being upfront—they’re touching on something they got wrong. It’s about the 2020 Supreme Court decision in Bostock v. Clayton County, in which the justices held that Title VII of the Civil Rights Act protects trans and gay employees in the workplace.

Upon reflection, it turns out that the Bostock opinion is one giant goose egg—and Justice Neil Gorsuch is to blame. As Jess says in the episode, “He managed to write the decision and tailor it so narrowly that it left open room for future conservative fuckery.”

That moment has arrived.
