Joe Biden’s decision to select Merrick Garland as the next attorney general was quickly overshadowed by an unprecedented attack on the U.S. Capitol by Trump supporters looking to upend the election. In accepting the nomination, Garland himself pointed to the insurrection as evidence of the need for strong rule of law, and vowed to reposition the Justice Department as an apolitical entity in the wake of the Trump era. Law360’s Jimmy Hoover joins us this week to talk about the Garland nomination, the D.C. Circuit judge’s experience as a prosecutor, and how he will manage an agency many believe to be in crisis. Also this week, we discuss a “bizarre” case surrounding New York’s COVID-19 restrictions on live music performances. Finally, the gang introduces you to two more attorneys who have become citizens of Bachelor Nation.
