Law360’s New York court reporter Frank Runyeon joins the show this week to break down the trial, which resulted in an order for Trump to pay Carroll $5 million in damages. Also this week, the controversial Republican Congressman George Santos is rung up on a bevy of fraud charges, and the government’s ‘Varsity Blues’ prosecution takes a hit after two parents swept up in the college admissions scandal see their convictions reversed. Finally, the hosts examine the apparent difficulty in serving Shaq with court papers.
