  • Penobscot Valley Senior College - One Day Events
    Tuesday, July 21 & Tuesday, July 28
    10:00 – 11:30 am
     
    Sol Goldman - Important Decisions by the Supreme Court Part 2
     
    Please join us on Zoom for the condensed versions of what we would have heard from Sol had we been able to hold in-person classes this spring.
     
    July 21:  Three Liberal Triumphs
    Chief Justice John Roberts joined the liberals on the Supreme Court to block President Trump’s rescission of DACA, to block a Louisiana law that would make abortion extremely hard to get in Louisiana, and (along with Gorsuch) to read the federal anti-discrimination law to protect LGBTQ employees.  Join PVSC and Sol Goldman for this one-day event to explore the scope of these decisions, which may be less than meets the eye.
     
    July 28:  What else is there?
    We’ll learn how the Court will answer the following questions:  If a Maine town has no public high school, state law says that the town will pay for an alternative school, but not a religious school.  Is that constitutional? Speaking of religion, can every teacher in a religious school be denied protection against discrimination because they are “ministers”? And how about congress or a state prosecutor getting those Trump financial records? Can the President keep it all hidden?  Join PVSC and Sol Goldman for this one-day event to explore the final decisions of this year’s Supreme Court term.
