The Supreme Court's first term with Justice Neil Gorsuch came to a close this week. Gorsuch, who was nominated by President Trump, issued opinions on cases regarding free speech and freedom of religion that indicate he is at least as conservative as his predecessor, the late Justice Antonin Scalia.

NPR legal affairs correspondent Nina Totenberg (@NinaTotenberg) joins Here & Now's Jeremy Hobson for a look at Gorsuch and the future of the Supreme Court.

This segment aired on June 29, 2017.
