US supreme court gives conservatives the blues but what's really going on?

Donald Trump’s nomination of two justices seemed to have tilted the balance decisively but recent rulings have raised eyebrowsFor all the ominous twists of Donald Trump’s presidency, his placement on the US supreme court of two deeply conservative justices, Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh, inspired a special kind of foreboding for many liberals.With three conservatives already sitting on the court, the creation by Trump of a seemingly impregnable, five-vote conservative supreme court majority a...

Interim Stat Pack for October Term 2019

With the 2019-2020 Supreme Court term coming to a close, the discussion among court-watchers continues to focus on Chief Justice John Roberts’ decision-making. Much has been made of his siding with the more liberal justices in striking down a Louisiana abortion law in June Medical Services LLC v. Russo and upholding the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program (at least temporarily) in Department of Homeland Security v. Regents of the University of California. Roberts’ positions in these c...

Susan Collins Cast the Crucial Vote for Brett Kavanaugh. His Biggest Backers Returned the Favor.

Sen. Susan Collins (R-ME) has been the object of liberal ire since her 2018 vote to confirm Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court. Now in a tight re-election fight, whatever hopes she might have had of putting that episode behind her were dashed this week, when now-Justice Kavanaugh cast a dissenting vote in the Supreme Court’s latest decision to uphold the legal framework that grants access to women seeking abortions.But the legacy of Collins’ vote on Kavanaugh hasn’t been all bad for the longti...

Nail In Coffin? Facing Toughest Race Yet, Collins Forced To Answer For Kavanaugh Vote

This article is part of TPM Cafe, TPM’s home for opinion and news analysis.  During the nomination fight, Sen. Susan Collins (R) bought into now-Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s Roe v. Wade hedging, publicly asserting she believed Kavanaugh when he said he respected precedent.  But in dissenting with the decision issued on Monday regarding a Louisiana law restricting access to abortion, Kavanaugh stood against the four-year-old precedent the court established on a similar case in Texas. ...

Supreme Court lifts ban on state aid to religious schooling

By MARK SHERMAN WASHINGTON (AP) — The Supreme Court on Tuesday made it easier for religious schools to obtain public funds, upholding a Montana scholarship program that allows state tax credits for private schooling.

The Legislature created the tax cred...

Opinion analysis: Justices uphold condition for HIV/AIDS funding

Seven years ago, the Supreme Court ruled that nongovernmental organizations based in the United States cannot be required to have a policy that expressly opposes prostitution and sex trafficking in order to receive government funds to fight HIV/AIDS. However, by a vote of 5-3, the court held today in U.S. Agency for International Development v. Alliance for Open Society International that enforcement of a similar requirement against the foreign affiliates of the same U.S.-based NGOs does not vio...

Opinion analysis: With Roberts providing the fifth vote, court strikes down Louisiana abortion law (Updated)

Four years ago, by a vote of 5-3, the Supreme Court struck down a Texas law that (among other things) required doctors who perform abortions to have the right to admit patients at a nearby hospital. In that case, Justice Anthony Kennedy joined his four more liberal colleagues in holding that, although Texas has a genuine interest in protecting the health of pregnant women, there was no evidence that the law actually did anything to promote that interest – but it did make it more difficult for wo...

Shocker: Supreme Court Preserves Abortion Rights, Strikes Down Louisiana Hospital Privileges Law

The Supreme Court has struck down a Louisiana abortion law that opponents say would have closed all but one abortion clinic in the state and had lasting repercussions for reproductive rights across the country.The Louisiana law, known as Act 620, would have required abortion providers to have the ability to admit patients at local hospitals. Supporters said the legislation promoted safety and continuity of care; abortion-rights advocates say it was a medically unnecessary restriction would force...

Unbundling DACA and Unpacking Regents: What Chief Justice Roberts Got Right

Benjamin Eidelson This post offers preliminary analysis of DHS v. Regents, last Thursday’s Supreme Court decision invalidating the 2017 rescission of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) policy. I’ll focus mainly on Chief Justice Roberts’ approach to the merits, which closely tracks a theory developed in a brief that I co-authored on behalf of the “D.C. Respondents” (as well as an op-ed that I published in the fall). [1] I’ll also flesh out the Court’s sound reasons for refusing...

Who Will Face McConnell In November? KY Sen Primary Results Still Too Close To Call

The Kentucky Senate Democratic primary race to determine who takes on Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R) in November is too close to call, according to projections made by “NBC News.” As of Wednesday morning, Amy McGrath (D), a retired Marine lieutenant colonel, had a slight lead on Rep. Charles Booker (D-KY) by a margin of just over 2,000 votes in what looks like a tight race so far. McGrath headed up Booker, 44 percent to 39.6 percent, in the votes that have been counted so far...

Interim Stat Pack for October Term 2019

OT 2019 has turned out to be a term of unexpected twists and turns. From coronavirus and an oral argument sitting in May — instead of March and April — with remote arguments for the first time ever, to fewer decided cases than in any term since the 19th century, to Chief Justice John Roberts siding with the court’s liberals in some of the most significant decisions of the term, nothing seems to be going according to common expectations. This interim Stat Pack contains data for all decided and ar...

Gorsuch made a mockery of textualism in discrimination case: Lackland Bloom, Jr.

The recent opinion of the Supreme Court in Bostick v. Clayton County, Georgia, holding that discrimination based on sex under the Civil Rights Act of 1964 necessarily encompasses discrimination based on sexual orientation or transgender status, is not simply patently wrong as a matter of law — but rather dishonest and fraudulent. Lengthy dissents written by Justices Alito and Kavanaugh explain in great detail why this is so. For those of you who do not have the time or the patience to read them,...

Opinion analysis: Court rejects Trump administration’s effort to end DACA (Updated)

It has been eight years since the Obama administration created the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, known as DACA, which allows undocumented young adults who came to the United States as children to apply for protection from deportation. In 2017, the Trump administration announced that it would end the program, which it believed had been illegal in the first place. Today, by a vote of 5-4, the Supreme Court ruled that the administration acted improperly in terminating the program,...
