On this week's episode of Versus Trump, Easha and Jason reveal their big announcement: we're doing our first ever live show! We'll be on stage on the afternoon of Saturday, June 9, at the ACS National Convention in Washington, DC. After that excitement, they get into a handful of updates about cases about auto emissions, HUD programs, the ban on military service by transgender individuals, and more. As usual, you can listen online below, and subscribe via this page with any podcast player or here in iTunes. 

First things first: we'll be live and on stage at the ACS National Convention on the afternoon Saturday, June 9, at the Capitol Hilton! You can find our more information and register here. More details to come on who are our special guests will be.

Then, Easha and Jason get into recent developments. Jason mentions a new suit by California and other states about auto emissions standards, and he says the Trump Administration may have a tough time defending the suit because of their heavy reliance on industry data. Easha then mentions a new lawsuit contending that the Department of Housing and Urban Development unlawfully suspended a requirement that local and state governments document their efforts to combat segregated housing patterns as a condition of receiving HUD funding. The list then goes on, as Easha and Jason discuss the status of the ban on military service by transgender individuals, what's going on at the Supreme Court, and a new filing in an Emoluments Clause case.
