Thursday round-up

Briefly: At Verdict, Sherry Colb discusses Mitchell v. Wisconsin, in which the court will decide whether a statute authorizing a blood draw from an unconscious motorist provides an exception to the Fourth Amendment warrant requirement; she questions the utility of the “implied consent” concept, arguing that the Fourth Amendment analysis would be cleaner without it.

"But while my feminist sensibilities make me wary of suggesting that Ginni Thomas should not be completely free to embrace her causes and live her life..."

"... there’s something troublesome about the unbounded nature of her public advocacy, at least for those of us who still care about the Supreme Court.... As a Supreme Court spouse, Ginni Thomas has always been different. In November 1991, weeks after her husband’s apocalyptic confirmation hearing, she gave an interview to People magazine, appearing on the cover in her husband’s embrace with the headline, 'How We Survived.' The disappearing act of other Supreme Court spouses is not for Ms. Thomas...

Academic highlight: Greenhouse and Siegel on the past, present and future of Roe v. Wade

The future of a constitutionally protected right to abortion is uncertain now that Justice Anthony Kennedy has retired from the Supreme Court, leaving a vacancy for President Donald Trump to fill. During the campaign, Trump promised to appoint justices who would vote to overturn Roe v. Wade – the standard position of all recent Republican nominees for president. Members of the Senate Judiciary Committee questioned Judges Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh closely on the matter, and many legal scho...

"What will the Supreme Court look like when neither side has to walk on eggs to win the favor of the one in the middle?"

"It will be a more conservative court, for sure, and maybe a more honest one. Justices may feel more free to say what they really think, and the public will ultimately judge the result by expressing itself in electoral politics."Writes Linda Greenhouse in the NYT.I'm going to look closely at 2 phrases — "more honest" and "walk on eggs."1. Greenhouse writes "more honest," not "more nearly honest," so — assuming she's in control of her writing — she must see honesty as not absolute: the Court can ...

The ever-evolving US Supreme Court

Justice Byron R. White, who served on the Supreme Court for 31 years (1962-1993), once observed that every time a new justice joins the court, it’s a new court. His observation may sound counter-intuitive: after all, a new justice joins eight incumbents. Can a single new member make such a difference? But consider the dynamics of an institution in which each of the nine members has an equal vote, and where no one can accomplish anything without persuading colleagues to go along – four other just...

As Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination reaches its 10th day, it continues to generate interest. Jeffrey Jones presents the results of a Gallup poll: A “four-percentage point margin [in favor of Kavanaugh’s confirmation] is slimmer than any Gallup has measured in its initial read on 10 prior nominees since 1987,” with the average margin being 23 points. At the same time, Scott Bixby of the Daily Beast reports that “[p]rogressive groups are falling behind in the war over President Donald Trump’s Su...

Empirical SCOTUS: Interpretive dance

In the Supreme Court’s first decision of the term, Hamer v. Neighborhood Housing Services of Chicago, Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg cited language from the court’s 2010 decision in Magwood v. Patterson stipulating that “[w]e cannot replace the actual text with speculation as to Congress’ intent.” Indeed, as Justice Elena Kagan wrote in the 2015 decision Ross v. Blake, “[s]tatutory interpretation, as we always say, begins with the text.” Even with this prescription, however, the justices often disa...
