Law professors Jeffrey Rosen and Jamil Jaffer talked about the 1967 Supreme Court case Katz v. United States, which concerned Charles Katz, a bookie recorded by the FBI transmitting illegal bets from a telephone booth. The Supreme Court’s decision in the case expanded Americans' right to privacy under the Fourth Amendment. The guests also responded to viewer phone calls and social media comments. Clips played during the program included Justice Samuel Alito speaking about Katz in his Supreme Court confirmation hearing; portions of oral argument in the case; an interview with Mr. Katz’s attorney, Harvey Schneider, in which he described the evolution of his thinking about his oral argument for the case and reaction to the Court’s decision; and C-SPAN producer Nate Hurst explaining about his efforts to find out more about Charles Katz. close
