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. The ban was upheld by the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Pasadena. Above, foie gras is seen in a dish at Vaca in Costa Mesa in a file photo. (Photo by Brad A. Johnson, Orange County Register/SCNG) LOS ANGELES — The U.S. Supreme Court on Monday rejected the foie gras industry’s latest challenge to California’s ban against the French delicacy made from the fat...

Ginsburg misses Supreme Court arguments for 1st time as she recuperates from cancer surgery

By MARK SHERMAN WASHINGTON  —  Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg is missing arguments for the first time in more than 25 years as she recuperates from cancer surgery last month, the Supreme Court said. Ginsburg was not on the bench as the court met Monday to hear arguments. It was not clear when she would return to the court, which will hear more cases on Tuesday and Wednesday, and again next week. Court spokeswoman Kathy Arberg said the 85-year-old justice is continuing to recuperate and work from ho...

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. Doctors at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York found “no evidence of any remaining disease” and scans taken before the surgery showed no cancerous growths elsewhere in her body, the court said in a statement. No additional treatment is currently planned,...

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...

SCOTUS for law students: Remembering recent confirmation hearings

Supreme Court confirmation hearings in the Senate Judiciary Committee are not usually a place one looks for legacies. 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. This column will consider examples from the confirmation of the late Justice Antonin Scalia, the unsuccessful nomination of the late Judge Robert Bork, and the hearings for Justices Clarence Thomas and Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Chief J...

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...

Kavanaugh and the environment

Michael Livermore is professor of law at University of Virginia School of Law. As in many other areas, Justice Anthony Kennedy was the swing vote in environmental cases, lining up in the middle of his more reliably conservative and liberal peers. His proposed replacement, Judge Brett Kavanaugh, has exhibited a very clear track record of relative solicitousness to regulated industry and skepticism to environmental interests. These instincts will likely place him to the right of Chief Justice John...

Kavanaugh Is Beltway And Bush Veteran, Clear Establishment Pick

WASHINGTON (AP) — Judge Brett Kavanaugh is the embodiment of the Republican legal establishment: an Ivy Leaguer who worked for the justice he has been nominated to replace, investigated a Democratic president, served in a Republican White House and now is an influential member of what is often called the second most powerful court in the country. The 53-year-old Kavanaugh was even born inside the Beltway and has lived there virtually his entire life. “He can still recite the section and seat num...

Inside Donald Trump’s Supreme Court Deliberations

White House officials had an appointment with their television remotes at 9 p.m. on Saturday. At that hour, they worried, Fox News’ “Justice with Judge Jeanine” might sway Donald Trump’s pick for the Supreme Court and undo everything officials have spent weeks working on. Trump and the former Westchester County judge are, to be sure, close. But the nervousness inside the Trump orbit this weekend, days before the President is set to announce his nominee to replace outgoing Justice Anthony Ke...

Back Doors And Tunnels Help Presidents Sneak In Supreme Court Nominees

WASHINGTON (AP) — To keep his arrival in Washington secret, the Supreme Court nominee was driven along a back farm road and flown to the nation’s capital on a military jet. He stayed with friends, rather than at a hotel. That allowed President Donald Trump to build up the suspense until he revealed, in a 2017 prime-time address, his first pick for the high court: Neil Gorsuch. “Here they come. Here they come,” Trump said as Gorsuch and his wife entered the East Room of the White House. “So was t...

Sotomayor promotes new law clerk hiring plan at ACS convention

At the American Constitution Society’s National Convention today, Justice Sonia Sotomayor promoted a new hiring plan for federal law clerks. Sotomayor promised to “raise an eyebrow and act accordingly” if she receives applications that don’t follow the plan, which sets a schedule for clerk hiring after a law student’s second year and eliminates “exploding” clerkship offers. Justices Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Stephen Breyer and Elena Kagan have also voiced support for the plan. An ad hoc committee on ...
