Supreme Court Term Wraps With Some Strong Language

The Supreme Court finished its term at the beginning of this week, marking several historic and contentious legal decisions, including deciding for a constitutional right to same-sex marriage.

NPR’s legal affairs correspondent Nina Totenberg discusses the term with Here & Now’s Robin Young and Jeremy Hobson.
