NEW PODCAST: Lauck on Law

“Lauck on Law” is a series by Scott Lauck, senior reporter for Missouri Lawyers Weekly. In podcasts focusing on appellate law, particularly the Missouri Supreme Court, he tries to tease out why the court ultimately rules the way it does. He looks at which judges vote together most often, which judges usually disagree, and what that tells us about them. Behind every opinion is a fascinating story — stories we want to share with you.
Episode One: Concurrences

What should court watchers make of concurring opinions? Some are just there for judges to expand on a point or give the reader something extra to chew on. Some are disagree with the rest of the court that they’re almost dissents. And some lay out blueprints for majority opinions of the future.
