While the 2008 financial crisis may have been nearly a decade ago, wrangling over federal bailouts is still making its way through the courts. Law360’s senior banking reporter Evan Weinberger comes on the show to walk us through a case challenging the constitutionality of the government takeover of insurance giant AIG and what it means for government power during a crisis. We also take a look at Donald Trump beginning to put his stamp on the federal judiciary with the nomination of 10 judges, and we close the book on the long-running criminal case over the collapse of law firm Dewey & LeBoeuf with a look at the verdict.
