Law’s Jonathan Adler asked what other precedents may be overturned after the Roe V. Wade decision

Draft opinion overturning Roe raises a question: Are more precedents next?

Professor Jonathan Adler

The New York Times: Jonathan Adler, the Johan Verheij Memorial Professor of Law, said he now expects the current Supreme Court to overturn precedents more frequently—and to do so more consistently in a conservative direction. “Advocates and lower courts will create more opportunities to overturn precedent, in the way cases are framed and brought and the types of arguments made,” he said. “And without Roberts being the median justice anymore, the likelihood that the court is willing to overturn precedent I would expect to go up.”
