Interim Stat Pack for October Term 2019

With the 2019-2020 Supreme Court term coming to a close, the discussion among court-watchers continues to focus on Chief Justice John Roberts’ decision-making. Much has been made of his siding with the more liberal justices in striking down a Louisiana abortion law in June Medical Services LLC v. Russo and upholding the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program (at least temporarily) in Department of Homeland Security v. Regents of the University of California. Roberts’ positions in these c...

Coronavirus: How does California’s surge compare to Florida, Arizona and Texas?

California is experiencing a surge in coronavirus cases unlike it has seen during the pandemic. But is the Golden State in the same, dire situation as Florida, Arizona and other states where the virus is spreading rapidly? Let’s take a look at the numbers. Confirmed cases: New cases slowed slightly in California on Wednesday, as county health departments reported 6,874 positive tests, shy of daily records set Monday and Tuesday but higher than any day prior to that, in addition to 81 more fatali...

Symposium: How to count to one

John Knepper is a private attorney based in Cheyenne, Wyoming. He previously was chief deputy attorney general of Wyoming. He filed an amicus brief on behalf of the Susan B. Anthony List in support of the respondent in June Medical Services v. Russo. Marks v. United States instructs that when a majority of the justices cannot agree on more than the outcome, “the holding of the Court may be viewed as that position taken by those Members who concurred in the judgments on the narrowest grounds.” Mu...

Symposium: June Medical and the many faces of judicial discretion

Jane Schacter is the William Nelson Cromwell professor of law at Stanford Law School. She signed an amicus brief in support of the petitioners in June Medical Services v. Russo. The headline from the 5-4 decision in June Medical Services v. Russo striking down Louisiana’s abortion restriction is unquestionably the vote of Chief Justice John Roberts. He determined the outcome. While he may have previewed his position a year ago when he voted to stay the ruling from the U.S. Court of Appeals for t...

Symposium: The chief justice restores the Casey standard even while undermining women’s interests in Louisiana

Erika Bachiochi is a Fellow at the Ethics and Public Policy Center and a Senior Fellow at the Abigail Adams Institute. Follow her at @erikabachiochi. In comparison to the high court’s bombshell opinion in Bostock v. Clayton County earlier this month, June Medical Services v. Russo would seem relatively straightforward. The challenged admitting privileges requirement for Louisiana abortion providers is virtually the same as the law struck down in Whole Woman’s Health v. Hellerstedt just four year...

KHN’s ‘What the Health?’: High court’s surprising abortion decision

The Supreme Court surprised both sides in the polarized abortion battle Monday by ruling, 5-4, that a Louisiana law requiring doctors who perform the procedure to have admitting privileges at a nearby hospital is an unconstitutional infringement of a woman's right to an abortion.

Opinion analysis: With Roberts providing the fifth vote, court strikes down Louisiana abortion law (Updated)

Four years ago, by a vote of 5-3, the Supreme Court struck down a Texas law that (among other things) required doctors who perform abortions to have the right to admit patients at a nearby hospital. In that case, Justice Anthony Kennedy joined his four more liberal colleagues in holding that, although Texas has a genuine interest in protecting the health of pregnant women, there was no evidence that the law actually did anything to promote that interest – but it did make it more difficult for wo...

With Roberts’ Assist, SCOTUS Strikes Down Restrictive Louisiana Abortion Law

On Monday, the Supreme Court delivered a win for abortion rights activists by striking down a clinic restriction law out of Louisiana. It was a five to four decision, with Chief Justice John Roberts joining the liberals in a concurring decision.  Justice Stephen Breyer, writing for the majority, called the law “almost word-for-word identical” to a Texas law the Court struck down in 2016. The Court found that that “the law offers no significant health benefit” and that it will “make it im...

White House left states on their own to buy ventilators. Inside their mad scramble.

Fearful that New Orleans would run out of ventilators by early April as the number of COVID-19 patients rose by the hundreds, even thousands, per day, Louisiana officials set out to get every device they could find. At the time, that meant securing an additional 14,000.

States with few virus cases get big share of relief aid

By GEOFF MULVIHILL Alaska, Hawaii, Montana and Wyoming are among the least-populated states in the U.S., and not surprisingly have the lowest numbers of residents who have tested positive for the new coronavirus. But despite their small size, they scored big this spring when Congress pumped out direct federal aid to the states. An Associated Press analysis shows those four, along with other small states, took in an out-sized proportion of the $150 billion in federal money that was designed to ad...

How California slowed the spread of coronavirus compared to New York

As the coronavirus pandemic sweeps the country, a surprising trend has emerged: California, an early hot spot that logged its first infection in January, has seen its outbreak grow far slower than other states along the Atlantic and Gulf coasts that didn’t even record a case until last month. New York, with about half California’s population, marked its first COVID-19 infection March 1. That same day, its mayor urged residents on Twitter to “get out on the town” while his San Francisco counterpa...
