Kavanaugh’s Civil Rights Views Scrutinized Ahead Of Confirmation Hearings

WASHINGTON (AP) — Brett Kavanaugh emailed his White House colleagues in June 2003 with an alert: The U.S. Supreme Court was about to release opinions on the University of Michigan’s use of race as a factor to admit students. It was an issue of great interest to his boss, President George W. Bush — who favored race-neutral admissions — and one Kavanaugh had followed for years. Staff prepared a response anticipating the practice would be struck down, saying, “We must be ever mindful not to use ...

5 Points On What Trump’s Bogus Elections Commission Is Really About

The people who professionally study election protocols are very worried about the commission President Trump has created to ostensibly study election protocols. The so-called “Presidential Commission on Election Integrity,” which was unveiled in an executive order last week, is being viewed with deep skepticism in the voting rights community. That is in no small part due to Trump’s outlandish and unsubstantiated claims that millions of people voted illegally in the 2016 election; the commission ...

Abbott, the pending challenge to Texas's voter ID law, before the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals en banc.

Texas Runs To The Supreme Court With Voter ID Law, But It Won't Matter In This Election

Texas on Friday asked the Supreme Court to take a long, hard look at its voter ID law ― weakened after legal challenges stripped it of much of its teeth. State officials filed a formal appeal asking justices to review a July ruling that found the law had a discriminatory effect on minority voters and thus violated the Voting Rights Act of 1965. The move, for now, is only symbolic. The petition for review will have no impact on the November election, since the Supreme Court can take several mont...

Monday round-up

Next week the Court will hear oral arguments in the challenge to the Obama administration’s deferred-action policy for some immigrants.  Lyle Denniston covered Friday’s order expanding the argument time to ninety minutes, while Mark Walsh covered the education angles of the case for Education Week. Commentary comes from David Leopold, who at Medium contends that a four-to-four tie in the case would guarantee “at least three levels of judicial chaos. Whether or not that happens rests with Chief J...
