Last week in the oral argument for King v. Burwell, Donald Verrilli got a good laugh from the audience in response to a hypothetical posed by Justice Scalia. See page 54, line 9 of the transcript. We noted this LOL moment in episode 51 (airing Tuesday), and I got to thinking, “There should be a Twitter bot that reads oral arguments and links to laugh lines.” So I accidentally pulled an all-nighter putting one together. Meet @LOLSCOTUS.
