Two important acknowledgements in the ACA case

As my fellow amicus Mike Dorf explains, it appears likely the Supreme Court will rule for California and the House of Representatives in California v. Texas either by holding that no plaintiff has suffered an article III injury or by holding that even if there's a plaintiff with standing and even if the amended Section 5000A is unconstitutional, that provision is severable from the remainder of the Affordable Care Act.Either of those holdings would be correct.  As Mike and I have argued, however...

Commerce Clause Findings Are Not Inseverability Clauses: The ACA Returns to Court

 The future of the entire 2,000-page Affordable Care Act again lies with the Supreme Court, which will hear California v. Texas one week after the election.   As I’ve detailed elsewhere, the arguments in California are not only a perverse application of settled statutory interpretation doctrine; they also seek an unconstitutional judicial usurpation of congressional power. That they have gotten this far is a threat to the legitimacy both of the Court and of its settled doctrines of statutory ...

Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, the Outsider’s Champion, Has Died at 87

Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Supreme Court justice, trailblazing feminist, and the closest thing to a folk hero the high court has ever seen, has died at the age of 87. The Supreme Court announced that she died Friday due to complications from metastatic pancreas cancer.In a statement dictated to her granddaughter just days before her death, Ginsburg said, “My most fervent wish is that I will not be replaced until a new president is installed.”Tributes began pouring in instantly. The chief justice, John...

Book review: In two new scholarly works, a shared critique of the court’s approach to church and state

Steven Green is the Fred H. Paulus professor of law and director of the Center for Religion, Law & Democracy at Willamette University College of Law. It is rare for two books on the same subject – and written by some of the nation’s leading scholars – to be published not only in the same year but practically in the same month. But that’s what has happened with two new works on the First Amendment’s religion clauses. (Possibly, there is less of a coincidence than meets the eye in that they share...

"Hey Siri, play music."

I said into my AirPods. So nonspecific! I was out and about and not in a good position to skip things, but I was also forcing myself to accept whatever it was that I had put into my iPhone music library. I have so many audiobooks, but they're in a different app, so it's only rarely that spoken word comes up when I'm playing the "Music" app randomly. I can tell Siri to skip a track, so it's not as though I'd need to dig the iPhone out of my bag and squint to read it in the sunlight. But I sometim...

Anti-discrimination law in Baseline Hell

Progressives Should Take Yes For An Answer – And Not Miss Chances To Exploit Their Surprising Supreme Court Wins

Simon Lazarus   “You would have been dismissed as delusional,” as ACLU Legal Director David Cole said last week, if in October 2019 you had predicted end-of-term progressive Supreme Court victories establishing LGBTQ workplace equality, and rejecting Louisiana’s abortion restrictions,Trump’s bid to rescind DACA, and the Trump-Barr claim that presidents are immune from all federal or state prosecutions and investigations. Many progressive pundits, advocates, and politicians are visibly strugg...

Opinion analysis: Court rejects challenge to exemptions from birth-control mandate

The Affordable Care Act’s birth-control mandate requires most employers to provide their female employees with health insurance that includes access to certain forms of contraceptives. In 2017, the Trump administration issued new rules that expanded an exemption from the mandate to allow private employers with religious or moral objections to opt out of providing coverage without any notice. Today, by a vote of 7-2, the Supreme Court in Little Sisters of the Poor v. Pennsylvania rejected a chall...

Interim Stat Pack for October Term 2019

With the 2019-2020 Supreme Court term coming to a close, the discussion among court-watchers continues to focus on Chief Justice John Roberts’ decision-making. Much has been made of his siding with the more liberal justices in striking down a Louisiana abortion law in June Medical Services LLC v. Russo and upholding the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program (at least temporarily) in Department of Homeland Security v. Regents of the University of California. Roberts’ positions in these c...

The headline from the 5-4 decision in June Medical Services v. Russo striking down Louisiana’s abortion restriction is unquestionably the vote of Chief Justice John Roberts. He determined the outcome. While he may have previewed his position a year ago when he voted to stay the ruling from the U.S. Court of Appeals for t...

Argument analysis: After marathon argument, little consensus on future of birth-control mandate exemptions

The Supreme Court heard oral argument this morning in the latest chapter of the battle over the Affordable Care Act’s “birth-control mandate,” which generally requires employers to provide their female employees with health insurance that includes access to certain forms of contraceptives. In 2017, the Trump administration issued new rules that expanded an exemption from the mandate and allowed private employers with religious or moral objections to opt out of providing coverage without any noti...

In the middle of a presidential election season, the justices will once again weigh in on the battle over the Affordable Care Act’s birth-control mandate, which generally requires employers to provide their female employees with health insurance that includes access to certain forms of birth control.

International Refugee Assistance Project the term before that. Whole Woman’s Health v. Hellerstedt was decided in June, a...

Sebelius. They wrote that Biskupic’s inside account of the Court’s post-argument opinion-drafting does not demonstrate that the Chief Justice was motivated by anythin...

Empirical SCOTUS: Who’s in the majority?

Although few people ever have the opportunity of sitting on the Supreme Court, some similarities exist between this upper echelon of judging and other jobs. One parallel has to do with job satisfaction. Judges who make it all the way to the Supreme Court should feel accomplished and contented because of their achievements, but there also must be at least a continuum of job satisfaction among the justices. That is not to say that any justice necessarily dislikes the job, just that they may not en...

Short-eared Owls at Burwell Fen

A 7- or 8-mile hike from NT Wicken Fen car park out through Burwell Fen to The Anchor in Burwell and back via the electric sub-station. Timing was perfect, just ahead of sunset by the time we got to the western side of Burwell Fen, there were about 20 others with cameras waiting for the local Short-eared Owls (Asio flammeus) to emerge for their late-afternoon prandials. Reckon we saw three of possibly six that live around this Fen. Like I say, there were quite a few people on the Fen watching...
