The legal fraternity in this part of the world is delighted at the Supreme Court’s decision on Smith v Fonterra. But not everyone feels that way.

In his inevitable style, Professor James Allan critiques the decision and the direction a collection of un-elected ex-lawyers are “usurping power to themselves at the expense of the elected branches of government”.

As a specialist in constitutional law, Jim is in his element.

We also spend words on SCOTUS and Trump. An important and essential commentary.

Plus we visit the Mailroom with Mrs. Producer.
