FROM THIS EPISODE

Since the death of Antonin Scalia, Congress has left the US Supreme Court with four liberals, four conservatives and the prospect of deadlock on cases of major importance to millions of people. We look at what to expect from decisions expected this week. 

Also, Donald Trump dumps his campaign manager. Later on the program, more than 50 years of sports heartbreak is over in Cleveland. Now the City's preparing for next month's Republican nominating convention — with barricades, batons, riot gear and police officers from out of town.

Trump Dumps Campaign Manager Corey Lewandowski 6 MIN, 20 SEC

The Trump campaign is expressing public appreciation to Corey Lewandowski, the original manager. But Lewandowski has heard those fatal words from the former star of The Apprentice, "You're fired." Bob Cusak, editor in chief of The Hill, says the firing has come at a rocky moment in Donald Trump's campaign.

Will the US Supreme Court Shift into Neutral? 33 MIN, 47 SEC

Blockbuster decisions expected this year could end up instead with opinions divided between four conservatives and four liberals. Since Congress hasn't replaced the late Antonin Scalia, majorities have already been hard to come by, and some predict deadlock for as much as another year, although a decision that came down today may be an exception to what's on the agenda between now and next Monday. We hear about the possible options for race-based college admissions, deportation of undocumented immigrants and unwanted pregnancies.

Cleveland's Curse Is Over, Will the GOP Get Lucky? 9 MIN, 34 SEC

Last night's NBA Championship game was a nail-biter — at the Oracle Arena, home of the Golden State Warriors. But more than 50 years of sports heartbreak ended as the MVP LeBron James and Cleveland Cavaliers became the first NBA team ever to win the deciding seventh game after being behind by three to one. And that brought Cleveland its first sports championship in 52 years.

Now the City's preparing for next month's Republican nominating convention — with barricades, batons, riot gear and police officers from out of town. Nick Castele, who covers sports and politics for WCPN ideastream, public radio in Cleveland and Northeast Ohio, looks at last night's game and preparations for the GOP convention.
