Tuesday round-up

The Supreme Court hears oral arguments Tuesday in cases that ask when companies can sue or be sued. First up is a pair of consolidated cases — Nestlé USA v. Doe I and Cargill, Inc. v. Doe I — in which the justices will decide whether the Alien Tort Statute allows citizens of Mali to sue American food corporations for violating international human rights norms. The plaintiffs say the corporations aided and abetted child slavery on cocoa plantations in Ivory Coast. Our preview is here. Next, the c...

Monday round-up

It’s not quite yet December, but the Supreme Court opens its December argument sitting on Monday morning with oral arguments in a pair of cases with broad ramifications: Trump v. New. York, the challenge to President Donald Trump’s plan to exclude people living in the country without authorization from the population totals used to reapportion congressional seats among the states; and Van Buren v.

At the end of a busy week dealing with emergency requests on the court’s shadow docket, the justices are meeting Friday for a private conference. It is the first conference at which newly confirmed Justice Amy Coney Barrett will participate.

Thursday round-up

The nomination hearings for Judge Amy Coney Barrett continued on Wednesday with a second day of questions and answers (or, mostly, non-answers) at the Senate Judiciary Committee. Senators pressed Barrett on an array of legal issues — from health care and abortion to section 230 of the Communications Decency Act — but she mostly avoided expressing any views on topics that could potentially come before the Supreme Court. Republicans expect to wrap up the nomination hearings Thursday, with a commit...

Friday round-up

As Washington and the nation absorb the overnight news that President Donald Trump has tested positive for the coronavirus, one of the many serious questions involves the potential effects on the nomination of Judge Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court. As Chloee Weiner notes for NPR, Trump has been “in close contact” with Barrett “within the past seven days,” although the date of their most recent contact — and other details, such as whether Barrett has been tested or whether she plans to sel...

Wednesday round-up

The Supreme Court — and President Donald Trump’s nomination of Judge Amy Coney Barrett — were the subject of the first segment of Tuesday night’s chaotic presidential debate. Trump reiterated his pledge to fill the court’s vacancy before Election Day, while Democrat Joe Biden said the seat should not be filled until after Americans express their views in the election. USA Today’s Richard Wolf recounts the debate segment. Extensive coverage of Barrett’s nomination continues. Briefly: In The Wa...

A “view” from the Rose Garden: The nine

President Donald Trump announced his first two Supreme Court nominees in the East Room of the White House, and both in prime time on a weeknight. Many people commented on the vaguely game-show suspense the former host of “The Apprentice” brought to the process: the surprising lack of leaks about the pick, the hint that two finalists might appear for the announcement that went to then-Judge Neil Gorsuch in 2017, and the president again entering the room by himself before revealing then-Judge Bret...

Wednesday round-up

As the Supreme Court and the nation honor Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, the court’s regular work continues. As Amy Howe reports for SCOTUSblog (in a story first published at Howe on the Court), the Trump administration on Tuesday asked the justices to weigh in on a dispute involving the 2020 census and whether people living in the country illegally can be excluded from the count used to determine congressional apportionment. Also on Tuesday, the justices declined to grant emergency relief to Will...

Monday round-up: Remembering Justice Ginsburg

The flags at 1 First Street are flying at half-staff, where they will remain for 30 days. A black wool crepe hangs over Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s chair on the Supreme Court bench. And words of tribute and gratitude to the late justice are pouring in. Here is how the world is remembering Ginsburg’s life — and looking ahead to the battle over her seat on the court.

Friday round-up

Two Supreme Court justices made public appearances on Thursday — if only virtually — and a third received a lifetime achievement award as the legal academy celebrated Constitution Day. The National Constitution Center awarded its 32nd annual Liberty Medal to Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg and, in lieu of an in-person ceremony, the center invited Ginsburg’s favorite opera singers and friends to pay tribute to her lifelong work in the law. Justices Stephen Breyer and Neil Gorsuch, meanwhile, particip...

Two new cert petitions from the Trump administration were in the news Thursday: one involving the death penalty for the Boston Marathon bomber and the other involving President Donald Trump’s practice of blocking people on Twitter. In the Boston bombing case, the Justice Department is asking the Supreme Court to review a ruling from the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 1st Circuit that vacated the death sentence for Dzkokhar Tsarnaev, CNN’s Connor Spielmaker, Sonia Moghe and Paul LeBlanc report.

The Supreme Court on Thursday rejected another attempt to ease election-related rules during the coronavirus crisis – this time by imposing a stay on a lower-court order that would have made it easier for an Idaho advocacy group to gather signatures for a proposed ballot measure. Amy Howe writes for SCOTUSblog – in a story first published at Howe on the Court – that the justices “have now on several occasions signaled that federal courts should not alter rules relating to an election even to acc...

Monday round-up

The Supreme Court begins its second week of summer recess as court watchers continue to absorb the news on Friday that Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg has a recurrence of cancer. Politico’s Josh Gerstein reports that Ginsburg’s announcement renews focus on a lack of transparency around the justices’ health, with critics saying the public is entitled to more information. CNN’s Dan Berman notes that gemcitabine – the chemotherapy drug that Ginsburg began on May 19 – “is a standard chemotherapy treatme...

The Supreme Court on Thursday issued its final opinions of the 2019-20 term, deciding blockbuster cases on President Donald Trump’s financial documents and the status of Native American land in Oklahoma. Amy Howe explains the pair of rulings on Trump’s financial records in an analysis for SCOTUSblog that first appeared at Howe on the Court.

At Bloomberg, Greg Stohr reports that the court “will end its term Thursday morning with historic rulings that will probably determine whether the public sees President Donald Trump’s long-hidden financial records before the November election.” For The New York Times, Adam Liptak looks at the two cases involving the president’s records, “one concerning subpoenas from House committees, the other a subpoena from the Manhattan district attorney, Cyrus R. Vance Jr., a Democrat.” Yesterday the court ...

Yesterday the court decided unanimously in Chiafalo v. Washington and Colorado Department of State v. Baca that state laws that penalize or remove presidential electors who do not vote for candidate they pledged to support do not violate the Constitution. Amy Howe has this blog’s opinion analysis, which first appeared at Howe on the Court. Nina Totenberg reports at NPR that the decision “is so strong that it would seem to allow states to remove faithless electors even without a state law.” At Fo...

Sheryl Gay Stolberg reports for The New York Times that “[t]he Trump administration asked the Supreme Court late Thursday to overturn the Affordable Care Act — a move that, if successful, would bring a permanent end to the health insurance program popularly known as Obamacare and wipe out coverage for as many as 23 million Americans.” At ABC News, Devin Dwyer reports that “[t]he administration makes the case in a legal brief filed Thursday in” California v.

For USA Today, Richard Wolf reports that even if the Supreme Court agrees to review one of several pending cert petitions that ask the justices to reconsider the doctrine of qualified immunity, “the murky standard of ‘reasonableness’ would remain a hurdle for those claiming police misconduct.” At Education Week, Mark Walsh looks at how changes to the qualified immunity doctrine might affect public school educators.
