In an extended interview, lawyer and journalist Adam Cohen discusses his new book, “Supreme Inequality,” which argues the U.S. Supreme Court has blocked social progress and expanded inequality over the last five decades. He examines in detail the court’s gutting of the landmark 1965 Voting Rights Act in 2013, its controversial 2010 Citizens United ruling that opened the floodgates for unlimited corporate spending on election campaigns, and its 2007 rejection of Lilly Ledbetter’s claim of pay discrimination at a tire plant in Alabama where she worked for 19 years. Her case led to the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act, the first bill signed into law by President Obama.
