Writers LIVE: Ian Millhiser, Injustices: The Supreme Court's History of Comforting the Comfortable and Afflicting the Afflicted

In Injustices, constitutional law expert Ian Millhiser argues that the Supreme Court routinely bent the arc of American history away from justice. He explains how the Court seized power for itself that rightfully belongs to the people's elected representatives and ignored rights that are explicitly protected by the Constitution. Millhiser tells the history of the Court through the eyes of the everyday people who have suffered the most, from Reconstruction to the present day.

Ian Millhiser is a senior constitutional policy analyst at the Center for American Progress and the editor of ThinkProgress Justice.
