Ginsburg’s recovery prescription: Plenty of opinions

The justice's most recent health problems, her extended absence from the courtroom for the first time in her career and her age combined to fuel wild speculation online that Ginsburg was gravely ill or dead. Far from it.

Gorka Tells Reporter To ‘Go Outside And Lick A Metal Street Lamp’

Former White House aide Sebastian Gorka earned himself a spot in the reporter response Hall of Fame with an absolute zinger to the Daily Beast’s request for comment Thursday: “go outside and lick a metal street lamp.” The weather was in the teens in Washington D.C. when Gorka delivered his devastating literary triumph. The story for which the Daily Beast sought comment is less deserving of praise: Gorka is peddling a conspiracy theory forged in the fires of QAnon that Supreme Court Justice Ru...

"Yesterday, the Wall Street Journal ran a story on how three conservatives nominated to the rogue Ninth Circuit..."

"... but whose nominations lapsed with the last Congress, had been left off the list of nominees resubmitted to the Senate Judiciary Committee. Many of us cried foul. According to the story, the White House was trying to reach some kind of a bargain with Dianne Feinstein and Kamala Harris, allegedly to grease the skids for the inevitable replacement of Ruth Bader Ginsburg on the Supreme Court. There are several reasons to not engage in negotiations with either Feinstein or Harris. Harris is runn...

Empirical SCOTUS: If Ginsburg leaves, it could be the liberals’ biggest loss yet – A look back at previous justices replaced with more conservative successors

The saga over Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s health seems to ebb and flow from the headlines almost daily. Part of the mystery relates to the amount of information shared with the public. We know that, while treating Ginsburg for rib fractures, doctors found malignant lesions in her lungs that were promptly removed, and that subsequent tests have shown no evidence of any other cancer. Ginsburg has since missed oral arguments and is reportedly recovering at home while keeping current with the cour...

Eight new grants, Ginsburg recovery from surgery “on track”

One day after Politico reported that White House officials were preparing for the possible “death or departure” of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, who had surgery in late December to remove two cancerous growths from her lungs, the Supreme Court announced today that there was no evidence of any other cancer, and that the 85-year-old Ginsburg would not require any further treatment. Ginsburg’s recovery from surgery is “on track,” Supreme Court spokeswoman Kathleen Arberg said in a statement, althoug...

"Sources confirmed to Fox News that the White House has quietly reached out to a small number of GOP lawmakers and conservative legal advocates, reassuring them it would be ready for any court vacancy."

"Under new White House Counsel Pat Cipollone, a ready list of top-tier candidates is being updated. The low-key, unofficial heads-up is similar to when rumors of Justice Anthony Kennedy's retirement were rampant in 2017 and 2018. He announced last June he would leave the court."From "Ginsburg absence shakes court: White House makes preparations, coming weeks seen as key" (Fox News). [Author: [email protected] (Ann Althouse)]

White House Quietly Prepares Short List, Eyeing Ginsburg’s Absence From Bench

Supreme Court justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg has missed days on the bench recently amid a career of shockingly consistent attendance, even when she was enduring serious health scares. The Trump administration has noticed. According to a Politico report, the White House counsel’s office and aides on the Senate Judiciary Committee are currently drafting a short list to prepare for the possible vacancy. Should Trump get to put another justice on the bench, the most judges appointed to the highest c...

California foie gras ban not lifted by US Supreme Court

The U.S. Supreme Court has rejected the appeal of a ban on the use of foie gras — the fattened livers of force-fed ducks and geese.

Justice Ginsburg Has Surgery To Remove Cancerous Growths

WASHINGTON (AP) — Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg had surgery Friday to remove two malignant growths in her left lung, the Supreme Court said. It is the 85-year-old Ginsburg’s third bout with cancer since joining the court in 1993.

Empirical SCOTUS: Differences between “Obama” and “Trump” judges, while sometimes subtle, can’t be denied

Justices of the Supreme Court rarely give public comments on words or actions of members of the elected branches of the federal government. This made the recent spat between Chief Justice John Roberts and President Donald Trump over the role of partisanship in the federal judiciary all the more surprising and powerful. Although phrased in terse sentences (Trump’s were via Twitter), their words left much to unpack. What began as Trump decrying the decision of an “Obama judge” (a judge appointed b...

A “view” from the courtroom: The investiture of Justice Brett Kavanaugh

Today the Supreme Court held an investiture ceremony for Justice Brett Kavanaugh. Kavanaugh took the oath of office on October 6, shortly after he was confirmed, and he began to participate in the Supreme Court’s cases two days later, so this morning’s six-minute ceremony is largely a formality, at which the court will officially receive Kavanaugh’s commission; the ceremony, which is followed by a reception, also gives Kavanaugh a chance to celebrate with his family, friends and colleagues. It h...

Yet a number of hearings have left their mark on the Supreme Court nomination process. Add the confirmation of Justice Brett Kavanaugh to that list.

Primer: GA Faces Lawsuit Over Voting Requirement That Disproportionately Affects Black Voters

Georgia Secretary of State and Republican gubernatorial candidate Brian Kemp is facing a lawsuit for the state’s exact match voter-registration requirement. Under the protocol, registrations can be placed on hold for minor discrepancies, such as a misplaced hyphen, between the application form and the state’s records. The state legislature passed the current version of exact match into law after Kemp had to abandon implementing the system as an administrative rule due to lawsuit that prompted a ...

More on Kavanaugh (if you can stand it)

I was asked by my daughter (and others) why I did not sign the letter opposing Kavanaugh's nomination.  It's certainly not because I'm not vehemently opposed to confirming him.  Nor can I blame it entirely on learning quite late about the existence of the letter.  Rather, I believe that the "judicial temperament" complaint, though real, is also something of a red herring.  Not only is it difficult exactly to figure out what that entails.  But it is also open to the pervasive game of "whataboutis...

Ginsburg Slams ‘Highly Partisan Show’ SCOTUS Confirmation Has Become

The Supreme Court’s liberal stalwart Ruth Bader Ginsburg rebuked the Senate’s Supreme Court confirmation process, labeling the ordeal a “highly partisan show.” “The Republicans move in lockstep, so do the Democrats,” she said Wednesday at George Washington University, according to the Hill. “I wish I could wave a magic wand and have it go back to the way it was.” According to the Hill, Ginsburg said she was confirmed by by a 96 to 3 vote and not one senator asked her about her time working fo...

After An Hour Of Dem Protests, Grassley Begins Opening Statement Touting Kavanaugh’s ‘Exceptional Qualifications’

It took about an hour, due to Senate Democrats and public demonstrators repeatedly interrupting the start of Brett Kavanaugh’s Supreme Court hearings, but Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-IA) began his opening statement for the hearings Tuesday with some unsurprisingly laudatory remarks. “ We are here this week to hear from Brett Kavanaugh, to hear about his exceptional qualifications, his record of dedication to the rule of law, and his demonstrated independence and his appreciation of t...
