The Pentagon reportedly used $1 billion in taxpayer money to fund the manufacture of jet engines and body armor instead of medical equipment

U.S. Defense Secretary Esper and Joint Chiefs Chair Milley hold news conference at Pentagon in Arlington, Virginia Reuters A fund of $1 billion in taxpayer money that was given to the Pentagon from Congress in March was allocated for a different purpose than what it was intended for. $1 billion was predominantly given to defense contractors and was also used for the manufacture of jet engine parts and body armor, the Washington Post first reported.  The $1 billion fund comes from the Defen...

Friday round-up

After lying in repose for two days atop the front steps, the casket of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg today will move across the street from the Supreme Court. There, Natalie Andrews of the Wall Street Journal reports that Ginsburg will be not only the first woman, but also the first person of Jewish faith, to lie in state at the Capitol. As Ginsburg leaves the Capitol Friday night for a private interment ceremony at Arlington Cemetery next week, the news cycle will remain focused on the court. “On...

The upcoming nomination battle, explained

President Donald Trump is expected to announce his nominee to fill the late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s seat on Saturday at 5 p.m. EDT. Whomever Trump selects, the nomination is certain to trigger weeks of high-stakes procedural maneuvers as Republicans try to fast-track the nomination process and Democrats try to block it. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) has promised a vote on the Senate floor sometime this year, but he has yet to specify whether it will take place before or af...

Ruth Bader Ginsburg – What Happens Now?

In the frenzied pre-electoral atmosphere South of the border, there appears to be a rush to nominate a candidate to take the place of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg who passed away less than a week ago. But politics aside, how exactly will her replacement be selected in theory? What are the procedures that need to be followed? The Congressional Research Service in Washington, D.C. has published a few reports that explain how the process is supposed to unfold. The Service is an agency ...

Thursday round-up

Six days after the death of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, retrospectives on Ginsburg’s life and career continue. Linda Greenhouse, in her New York Times column, writes that Ginsburg was able to achieve so much in her life because of her big imagination. “Ruth Ginsburg saw things that others didn’t,” Greenhouse writes. “She understood that the law could be harnessed in service to fundamental transformation.” In Forbes, Michael Bobelian examines how Ginsburg “left a lasting impact” even though she ...

In her seat

This tribute is part of a series on the life and work of the late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.  Judge David S. Tatel serves on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit. President Bill Clinton’s nomination of Judge Ruth Bader Ginsburg to the Supreme Court was widely acclaimed. For me, it was uniquely special because the president then nominated me to fill her seat on the D.C. Circuit. Happily, my robe now hangs in the robing room closet where the name plaque above mine reads...

Ginsburg’s casket carried into court building

A host of onlookers gathered on the sidewalk across from 1 First Street NE on Wednesday to watch as Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s casket was brought inside the Supreme Court. Shortly before 9:30 a.m., over 100 of the justice’s former clerks filed out of the front door of the court and down the steps, forming six single-file lines. Because of the coronavirus pandemic, the clerks, like the members of the public and news media gathered across the street, were all wearing masks, and were spaced six ...

Wednesday round-up

As the Supreme Court and the nation honor Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, the court’s regular work continues. As Amy Howe reports for SCOTUSblog (in a story first published at Howe on the Court), the Trump administration on Tuesday asked the justices to weigh in on a dispute involving the 2020 census and whether people living in the country illegally can be excluded from the count used to determine congressional apportionment. Also on Tuesday, the justices declined to grant emergency relief to Will...

Trump administration asks court to act quickly on census appeal

The Trump administration asked the Supreme Court on Tuesday to quickly resolve another dispute related to the 2020 census and citizenship – this one involving whether people living in the country illegally must be included in the apportionment of congressional seats. Last year, the court dealt a blow to the administration’s efforts to include a question about citizenship on the census. Chief Justice John Roberts joined the court’s four more liberal justices in ruling that the government’s justif...

How Joe Biden can make Barack Obama President again.

I invite Joe Biden to pledge to follow this pathway to putting Barack Obama back in the White House. By pledging, he may improve his chance of getting elected. Who knows? The Ruth Bader Ginsburg Dying Wish must come true. The vacancy on the Supreme Court must remain open. I won't spend time on that step, because that's what everyone's already talking about. So let's jump forward to the new things:First, President Joe Biden nominates Vice President Kamala Harris for the Supreme Court. He pledged ...

"Granted that most of the mythologizing came later, but for RBG to decide she was indispensable in 2013-14, when there was a Democratic President and Democratic Senate majority..."

"... that could have replaced her with another liberal, was a cosmic misjudgment. (As de Gaulle is supposed to have remarked, the cemeteries are full of indispensable people.) Self-confidence is fine and good, and in her case it was fully justified. But to imagine that through sheer will power you can endlessly defy age and illness is hubris, and we know from the Greeks, hubris invites nemesis — now in the form of a court that will pick apart and discard half her legacy. This is the tragedy we ...

Tuesday round-up

The legal community continues to mourn Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg with essays commemorating her life and her jurisprudence. At the same time, commentators are assessing what the new vacancy on the court means for the upcoming term — and how quickly that vacancy might be filled. Here is a sampling of the discourse: CNN’s Joan Biskupic looks back on “20 years of closed-door conversations” with Ginsburg. Michael Meltsner was in the room when, in 1972, faculty members at Columbia Law voted to hi...
