Heightened Scrutiny is a podcast about the Supreme Court's landmark civil rights cases, meant to be accessible to anyone interested in constitutional law and the stories behind the decisions that have dramatically changed American society and government. It is not just for lawyers.
The podcast is written, hosted, and produced by Joe Dunman, a professor and attorney who suffers from an incurable obsession with the Supreme Court and constitutional law.
Joe is an Assistant Professor of Legal Studies at Morehead State University in Kentucky. Previously, he taught undergraduate courses on constitutional law at Bellarmine University and co-lead the University of Louisville Brandeis School of Law Impact Litigation Practicum.
Joe's notable legal work includes his role as counsel for the Kentucky plaintiffs in Obergefell v. Hodges (originally Bourke v. Beshear), the Supreme Court's landmark marriage equality case. To learn more, check out Love v. Kentucky, a documentary about the Kentucky plaintiffs and attorneys. Joe has also represented numerous clients before the Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals.
