Prof. Scott Idleman, professor of law at Marquette University Law School, commented on a lawsuit filed against Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot over her new interview policy of granting one-on-one interviews only with reporters of color. “I think it’s pretty straightforward, you can’t do this,” Idleman said. “While there may be a compelling interest in what you might want to call equitable access to politicians, you can’t achieve it by using a color-based or race-based rule so long as there is even one less discriminatory, race-neutral alternative available.”

Prof. Megan Morrisey, adjunct professor of law and clinical coordinator of Milwaukee Justice Center’s Mobile Legal Clinic, spoke about the significance of the Mobile Legal Clinic — a project between Marquette Law School and the Milwaukee Bar Association that brings Milwaukee Justice Center services to the community. “A lot of the clients that we assist in the clinic, they have not only been impacted by a felony or even a misdemeanor conviction for years — often, it’s decades, and it’s often due to a nonviolent offense, a drug offense, potentially, and a case that they have long served the time that was ever allocated,” Morrisey said. “None of the cases that we help or assist on really were ever meant to be life sentences.”

Prof. Ralph Anzivino, professor of law, discussed the uncertain projections for the retail industry for a “return to normal.” Anzivino said it’s likely that routines of the pandemic have shifted consumer shopping habits in more lasting ways. “I think a lot of people dealing with this pandemic have established their buying patterns,” Anzivino said. “People are already accustomed to what’s been going on. There may be a modest or a tiny change, but I don’t see anything big.”
