SCOTUS theater live
A Word for Word Off the Page Reading of the Supreme Court arguments in

The latest installment of SCOTUS Theater, co-presented by The Center for New Work and Word for Word/Z Space, features a reading of the arguments in Peña Rodriguez v. Colorado -- selected by a vote of our audience.
Though there is no charge for the event, donations are welcomed. All proceeds will go to Public Counsel and ACLU.
The case concerns itself with bias in the jury room. Do rules about jury room privacy protect racist arguments made there? We'll find out what the court thinks later this year. In the meantime, our cast of actors and lawyers will present a reading and let the people deliberate.
The reading of the case will be followed by a panel discussion featuring experts in fields that intersect around this case: the jury system, racial justice and immigrants rights.
