Whicker: Want an NCAA revolution? The Supreme Court is here to help

Associate Justice Brett Kavanaugh did not have to write a thing. The Supreme Court had already spoken, in 9-0 unanimity. It upheld a district court’s decision in NCAA v. Alston that barred the NCAA from limiting the money an athlete could receive from a college for education-related purposes. It was another paper cut, another hatchet chop against the bloated business of intercollegiate athletics. Then Kavanaugh brought the chainsaw. He wrote a concurring opinion that immediately becomes the bigg...

"Who cares about a parenting memoirist’s removal from a law-school teaching roster?"

"The answer is, in part, because this story manages to touch on seemingly every single cultural flashpoint of the past few years. Chua’s critics see a story about #MeToo—because of her husband, but also because Chua supported the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court, even after he was accused of sexual assault. Meanwhile, Chua’s defenders see a morality tale about liberal cancel culture. 'What they’ve done to you is SOP'—standard operating procedure—'for conservative allies but chi...

Court makes it easier for appellate courts to affirm federal felon-in-possession convictions after Rehaif

Federal felon-in-possession defendants who fail in the trial court to assert their rights under the Supreme Court’s 2019 decision in Rehaif v. United States face an “uphill climb” to get a new trial or plea proceeding, the court stated Monday in Greer v. United States and United States v. Gary. Justice Brett Kavanaugh wrote for a unanimous court affirming Greer and an 8-1 majority reversing Gary, stating that “if a defendant was in fact a felon, it will be difficult for him to carry the burden ...

The unanimous opinion was authored by Justice Stephen Br...
