Bostock and Harris Oral Argument Transcripts
The Supreme Court has posted the transcripts of this morning’s oral arguments in Bostock (consolidated with Zarda) and Harris. Justice Gorsuch said that an interpretation of Title VII favoring LGBTQ workers will result in “massive social upheaval,” but early reports indicated he may be the conservative justice most open to the employees’ textualist arguments. Justice Kavanaugh was noticeably quiet, asking a single question. We will round up the major commentary on the oral arguments later this week.
