Supreme Court grants review in three cases to decide, once and for all, whether Title VII protects LGBTQ employees from discrimination

Yesterday, the Supreme Court agreed to hear appeals in three cases, to decide whether Title VII's prohibition against "sex discrimination" expressly includes prohibitions against LGBTQ discrimination. I cannot overstate enough the importance of these cases to the future of American civil rights. Currently, only 21 states have statutes that protect against both sexual orientation and gender identity discrimination in employment in the public and private sector. For the other 28 states (Ohio...

Empirical SCOTUS: Advocates who drive the justices’ votes

Scholars of the Supreme Court often debate the role of lawyers in Supreme Court decision-making. For an attitudinalist, the justices’ preferences make all (or at least most of) the difference. According to this theory, justices will often vote based on their preferred policy direction, which minimizes the role of advocacy. More recent studies show that such a view, however, might obscure the impact lawyers have on Supreme Court output. Surprisingly, these two views are not necessarily mutually e...

New rules mean tighter deadlines, fewer words

The Supreme Court issued revisions to its rules today. The changes largely mirror the amendments proposed late last year, with one notable exception: Although the justices reduced the word limits for opening briefs on the merits, they left the existing word limits for reply briefs in place. Changes to two rules – Rules 14.1 and 15.2 – require the parties to a case before the Supreme Court to identify any lower-court cases that are directly related to the Supreme Court proceedings. This change, a...

Abortion providers ask Supreme Court to take up appeal

In early February, the Supreme Court put a temporary hold on a Louisiana law that requires doctors who perform abortions in the state to have the authority to admit patients at a nearby hospital. Chief Justice John Roberts joined the court’s four more liberal justices in granting a request from abortion providers to bar the state from enforcing the law until the providers could file a petition for review of a ruling by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit upholding the law. That petit...

Pentagon Admits Plan to Launch 1,300 Satellites Might Not Prevent Chinese or Russian Attacks

Photo Illustration by The Daily Beast/GettyA new Pentagon space agency wants to launch nearly 1,300 small satellites and, in the process, totally reinvent the way the military operates in orbit.The goal: to help the U.S. satellite constellation survive a sneak-attack by China or Russia. With hundreds of satellites in orbit, no single satellite is critically important, or so the thinking goes. If the Chinese or Russians were to knock out one or even dozens of satellites, scores more could take th...

John Houbolt

When engineers first pondered how to send astronauts to the Moon, they thought big. They planned on sending a single rocket — like the rockets in 1950s science fiction. It would fly directly to the Moon, land, then take off and head straight for home. Such a rocket would have been expensive and taken many years to develop. Astronauts wouldn’t have landed until well after the end-of-the-’60s deadline imposed by President John F. Kennedy. But an engineer who was born 100 years ago today had a b...
