Toobin, who has covered all the major legal stories of the era, ranging from the nomination of four Supreme Court Justices to the trials of Michael Jackson and George Zimmerman, offers a unique look into the inner workings of the Supreme Court and its influence, as well as how upcoming elections will shape the court and, in turn, the nation.

Toobin, who received a 2001 Emmy Award for his coverage of the Elian Gonzalez custody saga, joined CNN from ABC News, where, during his six-year tenure as a legal analyst, he provided legal analysis on the nation's most provocative and high profile cases, including the O.J.
