David F. Levi, director of the Bolch Judicial Institute and president of the American Law Institute, recently led a panel discussion for the ALI podcast Reasonably Speaking with U.S. federal judges about the public’s perception of the U.S. Supreme Court. A June 2022 Gallup poll suggested a significant loss in confidence by the American people in several institutions of government, including the U.S. Supreme Court — and that was before the last few controversial decisions of the 2021 term were entered.
Joining Levi on the podcast to discuss the poll’s findings were Judge Raymond J. Lohier Jr. of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit, Judge Jeffrey S. Sutton, chief judge of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit, and Judge Diane P. Wood of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit. A version of their conversation will also be published in the forthcoming edition of Judicature.
