Teacher Unions & the Great Western Land Grab:

Friedrichs v. California Teachers Association and Sturgeon v. Frost.

Guest Speakers: Carrie Severino and Kimberly S. Hermann

Friedrichs v. California Teachers Association begins at 2:54
Sturgeon v. Frost begins at 23:41

In this town hall, Dr. John C. Eastman, Founding Director of the Claremont Institute's Center for Constitutional Jurisprudence, takes a look at the oral arguments from two of the Supreme Court's recent cases—Friedrichs v. California Teachers Association and Sturgeon v. Frost.

In Friedrichs, the Court considers whether it is a First Amendment violation to require public employees such as teachers to contribute to their union. The petitioner in Sturgeon challenges the authority of the National Park Service to place regulations on privately owned land that is located within the boundaries of the National Park System. 

Dr. Eastman is joined by Carrie Severino, Chief Counsel & Policy Director at Judicial Crisis Network and Kimberly S. Hermann, Senior Counsel at Southeastern Legal Foundation.
