Amid skyrocketing numbers of COVID-19 infections, a jury trial in Texas ended in a mistrial this week after at least 15 participants tested positive for the illness. On this week’s show, we’re breaking down the ill-fated trial in Texas, plus the slew of other courts that are shutting down during the third wave of the pandemic. Also this week: the law firm Sanford Heisler is best known for filing discrimination cases against BigLaw giants, but the firm is now facing allegations of bias from its own employees. We’re joined by Law360 reporter Anna Sanders, who broke the Sanford story. And finally, a federal court ruling that says the Trump administration cannot cite the pandemic as a reason to expel migrant children.
