Rao Comments Carried on NPR Morning Edition

A National Public Radio Morning Edition program examining the role of precedent in the Roberts Court featured analysis by a number of legal scholars, including Professor Neomi Rao, who told NPR legal affairs correspondent Nina Totenberg, "There's agreement, perhaps, among some of the conservatives and some of the liberals that the minimalists, as it were, are being less than forthright in what they're doing."

Rao's comments were part of a discussion about the transformation of the Supreme Court under the leadership of Chief Justice Roberts wherein the Court has reversed a number of key precedents, despite the differences among the Court's conservative members.
