The whole country is in a tizzy over GameStop — a floundering video game retailer whose stock went through the roof this week because an internet mob wanted to stick it to hedge funds. On this week’s show, we’re breaking it all down: The absurd backstory, the lawsuits that have already been filed, and the possibility of new financial regulations to come. In other news, Law360 reporter Jack Karp joins us to discuss how judges and courthouse workers have struggled to get access to vaccines. Also this week: The notable absence of Chief Justice John Roberts at the second impeachment trial of Donald Trump; and a court filing that would have the United States governed by the rules set out in the Lord of the Rings’ mythology.
