On April 27, 2011, the Supreme Court heard oral argument in Nevada Commission on Ethics v. Carrigan. The question in this case is the following: In light of the First Amendment, how strictly should courts scrutinize state laws that require state officials to recuse themselves from voting on matters in which they have an alleged conflict of interest?
To discuss the case, we have Supreme Court advocate Erik S. Jaffe.
