Media outlets from around New York state continue to turn to Albany Law School professors for analysis and commentary on the recent flurry of Supreme Court activity, spanning decisions on DOMA, gene patents, voters rights and many other issues.

Associate Dean Alicia Ouellette and Professor Vincent Bonventre appeared on The Capitol Pressroom for a July 4 roundup of the Supreme Court's most notable decisions. The program aired on radio stations throughout the state during the day, and is available online.

Professor Stephen Gottlieb appeared on WAMC's The Roundtable on June 26 to discuss the voters rights decision, and a second interview with him aired on the radio station on June 27. Professor Gottlieb, the Jay and Ruth Caplan Distinguished Professor at the law school, records a weekly commentary for WAMC that airs Tuesdays at 3:50 p.m.

Professor Vincent Bonventre, who maintains the blog New York Court Watcher, also did a number of media interviews on Supreme Court decisions. He was a guest on YNN’s Capital Tonight with Liz Benjamin on June 26. He also did interviews on the decisions, especially DOMA, for ABC-affiliate WTEN, NBC-affiliate WNYT and The Daily Gazette in Schenectady.

On June 27, Professor Bonventre discussed the SCOTUS ruling on DOMA on The Capitol Pressroom.
