Relist Watch

John Elwood reviews Monday’s relists. I’m today, so I’m going to be more summary than usual. The April calendar already appears to have a full complement of 12 cases, but the court in theory could add to it with this Friday’s grants. Admittedly, if it does so, petitioners won’t have the full 30 days to file reply briefs before oral argument. After this Friday, the court’s next scheduled conference isn’t until February 15 – almost a month from now. And any cases granted at that conference will ...

Polls: Voters Oppose Trump On Shutdown By Wide Margins In Key 2020 Senate States

Voters disagree with President Trump’s demand for border wall funding by double-digit margins in seven key Senate swing states, according to new polling conducted for a coalition of liberal groups.

The surveys were conducted by Public Policy Polling for the ...

WASHINGTON (AP) — White House officials and congressional aides emerged from talks aimed at ending a partial government shutdown without a breakthrough Saturday, though they planned to return to the table the following day.

Power versus discretion: Extraordinary relief and the Supreme Court

In an overwhelming majority of the cases that the Supreme Court hears, the matter at issue has been adjudicated all the way through the lower courts, and comes to the justices only on the far side of a ruling by a federal court of appeals or the highest court of a state or territory. As the justices have reiterated often in recent years, “[o]urs is a court of final review and not first view.” By waiting for most cases to go through multiple layers of review by lower courts, the justices give the...

Election 2018: Acosta, Gabriel, Rivas, Nazarian hold on to San Fernando Valley Assembly seats

Assemblyman Dante Acosta on Wednesday continued his grip on a small lead over Democrat Christy Smith in the race for a statehouse district that spans two counties and three valleys, while three other local Assembly incumbents held on to win their seats — all with 100 percent of precincts reporting. In the case of Acosta, with a narrow 1,222-vote lead over Smith, it appeared — if that number holds up — he was going to keep a Republican hold on the 38th Assembly seat, which spans the L.A. and Vent...
