Episode 006: Disappearing Cases, Part I

Welcome back to Counting to 5, a podcast about the United States Supreme Court. In this episode, we’re going to look at two cases from this term, Visa, Inc. v. Osborn and Ivy v. Morath, both of which disappeared from the Court’s docket without oral argument or a written opinion.
