"Justice Clarence Thomas, who once went a decade without asking a question from the Supreme Court bench, is about to complete a term in which he was an active participant in every single argument...."

"The justices now ask questions one at a time, in order of seniority. Justice Thomas, who joined the court in 1991, goes second, right after Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr., asking probing questions in his distinctive baritone....  If Justice Thomas’s questions differed from those of his colleagues, it was in their courtesy. He almost never interrupted lawyers, though he asked pointed follow-up questions if there was time left. Some of his most memorable comments were colorful asides. Over...

A Case Can Be Made To Replace Law Reviews With Law Blogs

No one could have imagined the changes we have seen the last ten or twenty years. Two day delivery of anything we want from the largest company in the world, a company that didn’t exist twenty plus years ago. A newly minted electric car company with a valuation in excess of all the other U.S. auto manufacturers, combined. All the result of innovation, technology and the Internet. While we hear of legal tech left and right, today, we hear little, if anything, of innovation when it co...

" The Supreme Court said on Monday that it would review a New York law that imposes strict limits on carrying guns outside the home... its first major Second Amendment case in more than a decade...."

"The Supreme Court has turned down countless Second Amendment appeals since it established an individual right to keep guns in the home for self-defense in 2008 in District of Columbia v. Heller. Since then, lower courts have generally sustained gun control laws. But they are divided on the fundamental and open question posed by the new case: whether states can stop law-abiding citizens from carrying guns outside their homes for self-defense unless they can satisfy the authorities that they hav...

Mnuchin, the justices will consider a lawsuit by shareholders of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac who are challenging a 2012 agreement between the Treasury Department and the Federal Housing Finance Agency (which acts as a conservator for Fannie and Freddie).

"The Supreme Court on Thursday cleared the way for prosecutors in New York to see President Trump’s financial records, a stunning defeat for Mr. Trump..."

"... but a decision that probably means the records will be shielded from public scrutiny under grand jury secrecy rules until after the election, and perhaps indefinitely. In a separate decision, the court ruled that Congress could not, at least for now, see many of the same records. The vote in both cases was 7 to 2. Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr. wrote both majority opinions."Writes Adam Liptak in the NYT.Jay Sekulow, a lawyer for Mr. Trump, [said] “We are pleased that in the decisions iss...
