Relist Watch: The Muller Report

John Elwood reviews Monday’s relists. I normally try to have Relist Watch written up by Wednesday after the court issues its order list. Here it is late Thursday and I’m just getting it out. It’s not just that I’m lazy, though I am. It’s that I’ve been mulling over the five new relists, and what I think their prospects are for Supreme Court review. In fact, I’ve been mulling these cases so deeply that you could call today’s installment the “Muller Report.” I like the ring of it. I’ve also spent ...

Relist Watch

John Elwood previews next Monday’s likely relists. This week’s installment is going to be brief, but at least it won’t be funny. It’s not just that I’m pressed for time, though I am: As I type this, the power is out for my entire neighborhood, and I sit hunched over my laptop in inky blackness. Apparently, the universe has decided that my gratuitous hyperlinks need to be given a rest. There was one grant out of last week’s relists, pushing the Kansas Supreme Court into an early lead as the most-...

Conservatives Say Students Censored Border Patrol. Now the University of Arizona Will Charge Them for Protesting.

Dianne Leeth / AlamyLaw enforcement at the University of Arizona said they plan to charge two students for protesting Border Patrol agents’ presence on campus last month. In a statement announcing the charges, the university’s president accused the students of infringing on “free speech” rights.The March 20 incident was tailor-made for right-wing outrage. A viral video shows a University of Arizona student standing outside a classroom and criticizing two Border Patrol agents who had come to give...

Relist Watch

John Elwood reviews Monday’s relists. After last week’s relist commotion, this week the changes are fewer, more subtle, and bad news for petitioners. Eight-time relist Newton v. Indiana, 17-1511, involving whether Miller v. Alabama applies to discretionary sentences of life without parole imposed for juvenile offenses, has been downgraded to a “hold” for last week’s grant in Mathena v. Malvo, 18-217, (itself relisted seven times) which basically covers the same issue. (The news isn’t that bad fo...

Relist Watch

John Elwood reviews Monday’s relists. Exciting times on the relist front! After a couple of light weeks, we had a flurry of action Monday. From last installment’s two new relists, the Supreme Court called for the views of the solicitor general in one case involving what accommodations employers must make for their employees’ religious exercise. The court denied cert in the other case, which involved claims of racial bias in jury deliberations, prompting Justice Sonia Sotomayor to issue an opinio...

Relist Watch

John Elwood previews next Monday’s likely relists. With my long-awaited argument finally out of the way, my preparations will no longer keep me from creating humorous and informative posts on the relisted cases the Supreme Court is considering; instead, my lack of talent will. We had fairly little movement at the last conference. We got an opinion respecting the denial of certiorari in two cases that had been relisted five times. And one new grant in a case involving Yeezy’s latest persona. But ...

Relist Watch

John Elwood reviews Monday’s relists. With the recent reduction in trusted sources for Supreme Court news, untrusted news sources must do our best to fill the gap. So even though I have an argument approaching, I will once again try to rise to the occasion. Happily for me, it’s a light week for relists. First the old business. The court finally resolved that tangle of 56 Armed Career Criminal Act cases pretty much the way I expected. Otherwise, from last week’s installment, we had one denial, ...

Relist Watch

John Elwood reviews Tuesday’s relists. I have an argument coming up, so I’m going to be fairly summary today. There was a fair amount of turnover at the February 15 conference, with one relist getting the nod (while its companion case had to settle for a hold) and one lucky petitioner winning summary reversal. Although the court to a former congressman who sought to challenge criminal charges he was facing, Justice Sonia Sotomayor at least filed an opinion acknowledging that the issue he raise...

Senators Feinstein, Harris join Rep. Lowenthal, other legislators who wonder why DACA-holders can’t travel abroad

California Senators Dianne Feinstein and Kamala Harris joined a growing number in Congress calling on the Trump administration to allow DACA recipients to travel abroad – a campaign spearheaded by a Cal State Long Beach professor and Southern California immigrant youth. In a letter sent Tuesday, Feb. 12, 36 legislators from both chambers asked for documents and information relating to the administration’s policy shift in 2017, when officials began denying requests from those with DACA status who...

Relist Watch

John Elwood previews February’s likely relists. We’re now in the middle of the Supreme Court’s nearly month-long midwinter hiatus between conferences. This means that the court hasn’t actually relisted the cases that it wishes to consider again after the January 18 conference, and probably won’t do so until closer to February 11. Still, we have a pretty good idea of which cases will be relisted. But before we head on to that, let’s bid farewell to the relisted cases that moved on to fairer clime...

Thursday round-up

At The Daily Signal, Elizabeth Slattery and Amy Swearer remark Tuesday’s cert grant in New York State Rifle & Pistol Association Inc. v. City of New York, New York, a challenge to New York City’s limits on transporting personal firearms, “gives the Supreme Court an opportunity to shed some much-needed clarity on its Second Amendment jurisprudence and ensure that the right is not treated like a second-class right.” At The Atlantic, Garrett Epps writes that “[a]lmost of necessity, the result is li...

DACA recipients see little reason to hope in latest proposal

PHOENIX (AP) — Daniel Briones has a degree in economics and a job in banking, but his future could not feel less certain.
