Professor John Cary Sims was interviewed on Capital Public Radio's Insight program by host Beth Ruyak on Nov. 15, 2016. He explained the future of the United States Supreme Court with President elect-Trump nominating the next Justice.

Trump has published a list of 21 potential nominees, and Professor Sims evaluated those and also discussed the fate of nominee Merrick Garland, who is expected to return to his role as Chief judge of the US Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia in January.

Listen to the interview here. The interview ended with Beth Ruyak inviting Professor Sims back soon to discuss the future of Roe v. Wade on the radio program.

Professor Sims has spent more than 40 years as an attorney, teacher, and scholar focusing on the ways in which the Constitution and the mechanisms based on it can be used to protect the rights of individuals and guard against the abuses of government power. He has written extensively in a wide range of legal publications, particularly on issues under the First Amendment, government secrecy, and surveillance of private communications. Professor Sims has recently taught courses on Constitutional Law, International Protection of Human Rights, Professional Responsibility and Federal Courts.
