Dissents have it all: brilliant writing, surprising reasoning, shade, puns, and sometimes historical impact. Although the “losing side” writes them, they’re still important: they can provide a roadmap for future challenges or persuade other justices. Sometimes they’re just cathartic. In Dissed, attorneys Anastasia Boden and Elizabeth Slattery dig deep into important dissents, both past, and present, and reveal the stories behind them.
