Court names military attorney as second-ever female marshal

Col. Gail Curley, an attorney in the U.S. Army who has advised military leaders on national security law, will be the Supreme Court’s new marshal, the court announced on Monday. Curley succeeds Pamela Talkin, the first woman to serve as marshal, who retired last year after 19 years on the job. Curley, who will begin her new position on June 21, comes to the court 30 years after graduating from West Point with a bachelor’s degree in political science. She received her law degree from the Univers...

Justices turn down cadet’s attempt to sue government over sexual assault

The Supreme Court won’t weigh in on whether a West Point cadet who was sexually assaulted by a fellow classmate can sue the federal government. The justices announced on Monday morning that they will not hear oral argument in Doe v. United States, one of the cases that they considered at their private conference last week. The justices also called for the federal government’s views in two cases, but they once again did not act on a closely watched challenge to a Mississippi law that would gener...

Justices ponder narrow ruling in student speech case

The Supreme Court on Wednesday appeared conflicted over a school district’s plea to be allowed to discipline students for their speech outside of school. Some justices expressed concern about whether allowing schools to regulate off-campus speech could sweep in too much speech by young people, while others worried that – particularly in the internet era – a contrary rule would give too little weight to the harmful effects that some speech, such as cyberbullying, can have at school even when it ...

Student’s Snapchat sets up major ruling on school speech

In 1969, the Supreme Court ruled in Tinker v. Des Moines Independent Community School District that public school officials can regulate speech that would substantially disrupt the school’s work. On Wednesday, the justices will consider whether Tinker also applies to speech by students that occurs off campus. In the internet era, in which cellphones and social media are omnipresent and many schools and parents worry about cyberbullying, the court’s ruling in Mahanoy Area School District v. B.L....

Justices add new cases on state secrets, free speech

The Supreme Court issued orders on Monday morning from the justices’ private conference on Friday, April 23. The court added three new cases to its docket for arguments next fall, including a major new case (covered in this article) on the scope of the Second Amendment right to carry a gun outside the home. The justices also turned down (at least for now) efforts by a group of states, led by Texas, to revive litigation over the “public charge” rule after the Biden administration refused to defe...

Justices doubtful on California donor-disclosure requirement

The Supreme Court on Monday seemed poised to side with two conservative groups challenging the constitutionality of California’s requirement that charities and nonprofits operating in the state provide the state attorney general’s office with the names and addresses of their largest donors. The requirement, the state insists, helps it to police charitable fraud. But two nonprofits argue that the rule violates the First Amendment by discouraging their donors from making contributions. After near...

Justices rebuff states’ request to reinstate public-charge rule, but leave door open for further litigation

The Supreme Court on Monday declined to immediately resolve an attempt by 14 states to revive litigation over a controversial Trump-era immigration rule after the Biden administration declined to defend it in court. In a brief, unsigned order, the justices said the states must first make their arguments in the lower courts, but they left open the possibility that the states could eventually return to the Supreme Court on this issue. The so-called “public charge” rule is one with which the justi...

Court to take up major gun-rights case

Over a decade after it ruled that the Second Amendment protects the right to have a handgun in the home for self-defense, the Supreme Court agreed on Monday to decide whether the Constitution also protects the right to carry a gun outside the home. The justices’ announcement that they will take up a challenge to a New York law that requires anyone who wants to carry a gun in the state to show a good reason for doing so sets the stage for a major ruling on gun rights in the court’s 2021-22 term....

Justices to consider constitutionality of donor disclosure rule

The Supreme Court will close out its April argument session next week with two major First Amendment cases. On Wednesday, it will hear the case of a Pennsylvania student who was removed from her high school cheerleading team after posting offensive messages on social media. But on Monday, it will first hear a very different First Amendment case: a challenge to California’s requirement that charities and nonprofits operating in the state provide the state attorney general’s office with the names...

A book published almost 25 years ago predicted that the 'Next New Deal' would follow a period of great social unrest in 2020 - and that millennials would take the reins after decades of boomer rule

Could President Joe Biden be the "gray champion" of the Fourth Turning? Pool/Getty Images A generational theory written in 1997 predicted America would see the climax of a crisis in 2020. As the climax turned toward resolution, a "Next New Deal" would reshape the economy and give millennials a brighter future. A "gray champion" would usher in this new economic zeitgeist.

Robin Lehner’s COVID Talk And WHA Records

from Larry Brooks of the New York Post, It is unclear where the disconnect occurred with Robin Lehner, who believes he was coerced into becoming vaccinated against COVID-19 with promises of relaxed league protocols. No other player has seconded his tale. So either someone unidentified by the Vegas goaltender flat out lied to him or there was a rather significant misunderstanding derived from his conversations about the NHL/NHLPA virus-related restrictions. But an individual with k...

Court upholds life-without-parole sentence for Mississippi man convicted as juvenile

This article was updated on Thursday, April 22, at 7:40 p.m. The Supreme Court on Thursday declined to impose new restrictions on the ability of states to sentence juveniles to life without parole, rejecting a challenge from a Mississippi man, Brett Jones, who was convicted of the 2004 stabbing death of his grandfather, a crime committed when Jones was 15. Jones had argued that two recent Supreme Court decisions on mandatory life-without-parole decisions for juveniles – the court’s 2012 decisio...

Justices add confrontation-clause case to next term’s docket

The Sixth Amendment gives a defendant in a criminal prosecution the right “to be confronted with the witnesses against him.” On Monday, the Supreme Court agreed to take up the case of Darrell Hemphill, who was convicted for the 2006 shooting death of a child, who was a passenger in a car that drove by a fight on a street in the Bronx. The question that the justices agreed to decide is whether Hemphill “opened the door” at his trial to the use of evidence that would normally be barred by the Con...

Hockey Notes On A Great Spring Sunday Morning In Motown

from Steve Simmons of the Toronto Sun, - On Saturday night, Patrick Marleau tied Howe by playing in his 1,767th game. (Marcel) Dionne is more impressed with Ovechkin than he is with Marleau, who on Monday, barring an injury, will pass Howe. “What is he scoring now, a goal or two a year? I’m not that impressed with that. I give him credit for playing that long. Just not how he’s doing it.” Marleau, for the record, has four goals this season. - So if J.T.

Patrick Marleau About To Replace Gordie Howe In Most Games Played

from Nicholas J. Cotsonika of, Growing up in Aneroid, Saskatchewan, Patrick Marleau looked to see which players from his province had made the NHL. At the top of the list was one of the greatest of all time, the one who had played more NHL games than anyone else, Gordie Howe. "It gives you hope," he said. "It gives you hope that maybe that could be me one day playing in the NHL, since these other guys before me did it coming from small farming communities in Saskatchewan." ...

Howe played 1,767 NHL games. Marleau, heading into Saturday night, had played 1,762. What doesn’t get mentioned often enough is that Howe played 419 WHA games and somehow that gets forgotten in the record books - Alex Ovechkin is five goals away from passing Marcel Dionne for fifth overall in NHL goal scoring....

Divided court blocks California’s COVID-related restrictions on in-home religious gatherings

A divided Supreme Court on Friday night granted a request by a California pastor to put COVID-related restrictions on in-home Bible study and prayer meetings on hold. The ruling, issued just before midnight, was the most recent in a series of challenges, dating back almost to the start of the pandemic, to restrictions on in-person gatherings. Chief Justice John Roberts indicated that he would have denied the request; Justice Elena Kagan filed a dissenting opinion, which was joined by Justices S...

Big effort by La Salle comes up short against Harvard-Westlake in the Rose Bowl

The excitement of playing in the historic Rose Bowl provided the Harvard-Westlake football team with both early sparks and late sparks from Jason Thomson who scored five touchdowns to carry his team to a 58-40 win over La Salle on Friday night in what was a matchup of two unbeaten teams in Del Rey League action. With the win, Harvard-Westlake (5, -0, 3-0) has the inside track to claim an outright league championship in this shortened season. The Wolverines can wrap up the championship next week ...

Biden to create bipartisan commission on Supreme Court reform

President Joe Biden will issue an executive order to create a commission to study potential reforms to the Supreme Court, the White House announced on Friday. The announcement fulfilled a campaign promise by the president, who last fall proposed the idea of a commission after he declined to endorse efforts by liberals to expand the Supreme Court – efforts that Justice Stephen Breyer criticized in a speech on Tuesday at Harvard Law School. In its statement, the White House indicated that the com...

In Harvard speech, Breyer speaks out against “court packing”

Emphasizing that the Supreme Court’s authority hinges on the public’s trust in the court, Justice Stephen Breyer used a speech on Tuesday at Harvard Law School to argue against efforts to expand the number of seats on the Supreme Court. The 82-year-old Breyer contended that public trust in the court rests in the public’s perception that “the court is guided by legal principle, not politics” and would therefore be eroded if the court’s structure were changed in response to concerns about the inf...

Justices throw out Trump Twitter case

Just under three months after former President Donald Trump was permanently banned from Twitter, the Supreme Court put an end to a legal battle over Trump’s personal Twitter account, throwing out a lower-court ruling against the former president and instructing that court to dismiss the case on the ground that it is moot – that is, no longer a live controversy. The lawsuit was filed in July 2017 by the Knight First Amendment Institute and seven individuals whom Trump had blocked on Twitter afte...
