Summary Judgment is a podcast about the law.  It aims to offer an easy-to-understand summary of major court decisions as they are decided.  Law is often made to seem mysterious to the lay person and media coverage, except by specialists, tends to be inaccurate.  This podcast is designed to offer an overview of the arguments on both sides of an issue and an explanation of the court's ruling.  It should hopefully appeal to both lawyers and non-lawyers alike.

The podcast is written, hosted, and produced by Alan Mygatt-Tauber, a practicing attorney who has previously taught law-focused courses to undergraduates for five years at the University of South Carolina and Penn State.  Alan has a Bachelor's Degree in Political Science from the University of Oregon, a Master's Degree in Political Science from the University of South Carolina and a J.D. from the George Washington University School of Law.
