Apr 22, 2019

St. Louis on the Air's monthly Legal Roundtable got underway Monday as St. Louis Public Radio reporter Jonathan Ahl delved into a variety of recent local and national stories pertaining to the law.

The discussion touched on matters including the latest news surrounding the Supreme Court’s decision to hear three cases that have to do with whether existing federal bans on sex discrimination in the workplace also prohibit discrimination based on sexual orientation or gender identity; the redacted Mueller report; criticism of the St. Louis Bail Project; and the arrest of WikiLeaks co-founder Julian Assange, among other topics.
