Tuesday round-up

Yesterday the court released opinions in four argued cases, by posting the rulings on its website at five-minute intervals rather than delivering them from the bench as it usually does. Kevin Daley reports at The Washington Free Beacon that it was “the first time since Bush v. Gore that the justices issued rulings without reading decisions from the bench during an official public session.” In Kahler v. Kansas, the justices ruled 6-3 that the Constitution’s due process clause does not require Kan...

McCarthy Calls on Senate Democrats to Reconsider Leadership after Schumer’s SCOTUS Comments

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy on Thursday called on Senate Democrats to reconsider whether they want minority leader Chuck Schumer to continue in his current role in light of the threat he directed at the Supreme Court's conservative justices."I don't think you should take this lightly," McCarthy said during a press conference. "Think about who said this and where they said it. We have three co-equal branches. You had the leader of the Democrats in the Senate standing over the Sup...

A “view” from the courtroom: “Strong feelings” in the latest abortion case

The court has just one case today to close out the argument portion of the February sitting, but it’s a big one. In June Medical Services LLC v. Russo, the justices will consider whether Louisiana’s law requiring abortion doctors to have admitting privileges at nearby hospitals conflicts with the court’s decision just four years ago in Whole Woman’s Health v. Hellerstedt striking down a similar law in Texas. There is also the cross-petition from Louisiana about whether abortion providers have th...

Chief Justice John Roberts Scolds Schumer for ‘Dangerous’ Threat Directed at Conservative Justices

Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts on Wednesday criticized Senator Chuck Schumer (D., N.Y.) over comments the minority leader made in reference to an abortion case currently being debated by the court."Justices know that criticism comes with the territory, but threatening statements of this sort from the highest levels of government are not only inappropriate, they are dangerous. All Members of the Court will continue to do their job, without fear or favor, from whatever quarter," Roberts ...

Symposium: Abortion: A right in name only?

Jennifer Dalven is the director of the Reproductive Freedom Project at the ACLU, which filed an amicus brief in support of the petitioner in June Medical Services v. Gee . Is the Supreme Court going to overturn Roe v. Wade ? Everywhere I go, that’s the question I get. And to be sure, it’s a legitimate and very frightening question. After all, in 2019 alone, seven states passed laws banning abortion from the earliest days of pregnancy, all in the hopes of getting the Supreme Court to ov...

Symposium: June Medical Services – An opportunity to reject invasive appellate review

Fadwa Hammoud is the solicitor general of the state of Michigan, which joined an amicus brief on behalf of the petitioner in June Medical Services v. Gee. Many articles concerning June Medical Services v. Gee attempt to read the tea leaves regarding the future of abortion rights in light of the newer members of the Supreme Court, Justices Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh. And rightfully so, given the effect that the court’s composition can have on American life. But I will leave the tasseography...

"The Supreme Court on Friday agreed to hear its first abortion case since President Trump’s appointments of two justices."

Adam Liptak reports (at the NYT).The case [June Medical Services v. Gee] concerns a Louisiana law that its opponents say would leave the state with only one doctor in a single clinic authorized to provide abortions. And it is very likely to yield an unusually telling decision because, in 2016, the court struck down an essentially identical Texas law.The vote in the 2016 decision [Whole Woman’s Health v. Hellerstedt] was 5 to 3, with Justice Anthony M. Kennedy joining the court’s four-member libe...

You Can Now Get Anti-Anxiety "Beta-Blockers" Online - Are They Safe?

Sitting next to me on an airplane is a specific kind of misery. At the first sign of turbulence, I'm shaking uncontrollably, white-knuckling both armrests in an effort to hang on for dear life. If things get really bumpy, I'm flinging my body over your seat mid sob to get my hands on miniature wine bottles by whatever means necessary. Since that's obviously not an ideal coping routine, I've begun researching other, medically approved methods to address what a therapist informed me is not j...

In an op-ed for The New York Times, Linda Greenhouse writes that Chief Justice John Roberts’ vote last week in June Medical Services v. Gee to temporarily block a Louisiana law that would require abortion providers to have admitting privileges at nearby hospitals was not surprising, because “circumstances compelled the chief justice to stand up to a stunning act of judicial defiance” by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 5th Circuit.
