Justices add constitutional question to citizenship case

On April 23, the Supreme Court will hear oral argument in the challenge to the decision to reinstate a question about citizenship on the 2020 census. The justices had originally granted review to decide whether that decision violated federal laws governing administrative agencies, but today the justices announced that they will also consider whether the decision violates the Constitution. The justices’ order adding the constitutional issue to the case came four days after U.S. Solicitor General ...

Argument preview: Justices to weigh allegations of racial discrimination in jury selection

During jury selection, some potential jurors can be removed “for cause” – that is, when a judge believes that a juror cannot be impartial in deciding the case. The lawyers trying the case also have a certain number of “peremptory strikes,” which allow them to reject jurors without providing a reason. However, the Supreme Court ruled in Batson v. Kentucky that prosecutors cannot use their peremptory strikes to remove prospective jurors from the jury pool based only on the jurors’ race. Next week ...

Argument preview: Virginia racial gerrymandering case returns to Supreme Court

The issue of gerrymandering will be front and center at the Supreme Court in March. On March 26, the justices will tackle two of the highest-profile cases of the term, involving partisan gerrymandering – the idea that state officials went too far in considering politics when redistricting, by drawing maps that favor one political party at another’s expense. But first, on March 18, the justices will once again tackle another thorny issue: accusations of racial gerrymandering, the idea that legisl...

Friday round-up

Amy Howe reports for this blog, in a post that first appeared at Howe on the Court, that yesterday Justices Samuel Alito and Elena Kagan testified about the Supreme Court’s budget at a congressional hearing, “field[ing] questions about cameras in the courtroom, law clerk diversity, partisan attacks on the judiciary, and the #MeToo movement.” Jess Bravin reports for that, according to Kagan, “Chief Justice John Roberts is weighing whether to create a code of conduct for members of the Supreme C...

Eddie Howe gives Bournemouth injury update before Huddersfield

Huddersfield vs Bournemouth Bournemouth will travel to Huddersfield on Saturday as they look to end their poor run of form. The Cherries are now 12th in the Premier League and without a win in their last five outings, losing four and drawing one. Bournemouth are now also 10 points off 7th place Wolves.

Funding the one percent

Justices Samuel Alito and Elena Kagan appeared this afternoon before the Subcommittee on Financial Services and General Government of the House Committee on Appropriations. They were invited to discuss the Supreme Court’s budget requirements for fiscal year 2020, but they also fielded questions about cameras in the courtroom, law clerk diversity, partisan attacks on the judiciary, and the #MeToo movement. Perhaps most notably, Kagan disclosed that Chief Justice John Roberts is studying a code ...

Red Wings’ “Terrible” Ted Lindsay: Honoring a Lasting Legacy

Ted Lindsay, one of the Detroit Red Wings’ all-time greats died on Monday, March 4, 2019. He was 93. Toronto Maple Leafs’ President and former Red Wings player Brendan Shanahan said it well: “We used to walk by this photo in Olympia room at Joe Louis Arena every day. It served as inspiration and brought many of Ted’s stories to life. If they play pick-up hockey in heaven, I’d like to think everyone is nervously doing up their chinstraps today. You were a giant, Ted.” The Production Line was re-...

Abortion could return to the Supreme Court: In Plain English

In 2016, Justice Anthony Kennedy provided the fifth vote to strike down a Texas law that required doctors who perform abortions to have “admitting privileges” – the right to admit patients – at a local hospital. But Kennedy retired last year. So when two doctors who perform abortions, along with an abortion clinic, came to the Supreme Court in January, asking the justices to bar Louisiana from enforcing a similar law, many court-watchers saw the case as a bellwether for the Supreme Court’s abort...

Justices add patent-fees case to next term’s docket

This morning the Supreme Court issued orders from last week’s conference, adding a new case involving fees in patent cases to its docket. Under federal law, an unsuccessful patent applicant who wants a court to review the denial of his patent by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office has two options. He can go to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit, which will review the denial based on the same record that the USPTO used. Or he can go to federal district court, which will let him ad...

Callum Wilson injury update before Bournemouth vs Man City

Bournemouth vs Man City Bournemouth are set to host Manchester City on Saturday as they look to end their poor form. The Cherries have now slipped down to 12th in the table and after such a bright start to the season, they have lost their last four league outings. The latest of which saw them get smashed 5-1 by Arsenal in midweek. Bournemouth could move as high as 9th with a win on Saturday but that is unlikely given their opponents. Man City head into the game 2nd in the Premier League having ...

Argument analysis: Peace cross appears safe, if not stable

For nearly a century, a 40-foot-tall stone and concrete cross has stood on a traffic median in the Washington, D.C., suburbs, just a few miles from the Supreme Court. But seven years ago, a group of local residents filed a lawsuit seeking to have the cross removed. They argue that the presence of the cross on public land violates the Constitution, which bars the government from establishing an official religion and favoring one religion over another. The state of Maryland, which owns and maintai...

Opinion analysis: Court orders new look at death sentence for Alabama inmate with dementia

Today the Supreme Court gave an Alabama death-row inmate at least a temporary reprieve, sending the case back to the lower courts for them to consider whether the inmate’s dementia leaves him so incompetent that he cannot be executed. The vote was 5-3, with Chief Justice John Roberts joining the court’s four more liberal justices in a ruling in favor of the inmate. Justice Samuel Alito wrote a dissenting opinion that was joined by Justices Clarence Thomas and Neil Gorsuch; Justice Brett Kavanaug...

Argument analysis: Court poised to rule for challenger in dispute over constitutionality of sex-offender law

This morning the Supreme Court heard oral argument in a dispute over the constitutionality of a federal law that requires convicted sex offenders to return to prison for at least five years – and possibly for the rest of their lives – if a judge finds that they have committed certain crimes. The defendant in the case, an Oklahoma man who served time for possessing child pornography and was then sent back to prison after he violated the terms of his supervised release, argues that the law violate...

There's A Right & A Wrong Way To Use Your Favorite Face Mist

Luxury is, by definition, a state of great comfort and extravagance, particularly as it relates to lifestyle. In practice, it takes on many different forms: fine leather goods, a five-course prix fixe at a restaurant that's fully booked six months out, a Patek Philippe timepiece (that's a fancy word for watch), a chalet in the Alps, a private jet that takes you to your chalet in the Alps. But maybe true luxury is doing things just because you can, because you can afford to — like spraying very ...

Argument analysis: No clear resolution on whether First Amendment applies to public-access channels

The Supreme Court heard oral argument today in a case involving whether a private nonprofit corporation that runs a public-access TV channel is a “state actor,” who can be sued for violations of the First Amendment. After roughly an hour of debate, there was no clear winner in the case: The justices who spoke appeared to be divided, and two justices – Clarence Thomas and Neil Gorsuch – asked no questions at all. The events leading up to today’s case began back in 2012, when DeeDee Halleck, an aw...
