Supreme Court unanimously sides with ex-athletes in NCAA compensation case

WASHINGTON — In a ruling that could help push changes in college athletics, the Supreme Court on Monday unanimously ruled that the NCAA can’t enforce certain rules limiting the education-related benefits — things like computers and graduate scholarships — that colleges offer athletes. The case doesn’t decide whether students can be paid salaries. Instead, the ruling will help determine whether schools decide to offer athletes tens of thousands of dollars in those benefits for things including tu...

The NCAA "seeks immunity from the normal operation of the antitrust laws" — and loses.

In the new Supreme Court case, NCAA v. Alston. It's unanimous. Gorsuch writes the opinion. A snippet:From the start, American colleges and universities have had a complicated relationship with sports and money. In 1852, students from Harvard and Yale participated in what many regard as the Nation’s first intercollegiate competition—a boat race at Lake Winnipesaukee, New Hampshire. But this was no pickup match. A railroad executive sponsored the event to promote train travel to the picturesque la...

Justices send securities class action against Goldman Sachs back to lower court

The Supreme Court on Monday sent a shareholder class-action lawsuit against Goldman Sachs back to a lower court for a closer look at whether alleged misstatements by the bank were too general to have affected its stock price. In its opinion in Goldman Sachs Group v. Arkansas Teacher Retirement System, the court held that defendants in securities cases can rebut the presumption that class-based adjudication is appropriate by showing that the challenged statements were so generic that they would ...

From the court, a vindication of faith-based service. From Alito, a blueprint for the future.

This article is part of a symposium on the court’s decision in Fulton v. City of Philadelphia. Andrea Picciotti-Bayer is the director of the Conscience Project and previously was the legal adviser to the Catholic Association. Anti-Catholic bigotry is not a thing of the past. When the city of Philadelphia severed ties with Catholic Social Services, a church-run foster-care program, it was the equivalent of hanging a “Catholics Need Not Apply” sign outside of its Department of Human Services.

Another victory at the Supreme Court for religious groups

By JESSICA GRESKO WASHINGTON (AP) — In another victory for religious groups at the Supreme Court, the justices on Thursday unanimously sided with a Catholic foster care agency that says its religious views prevent it from working with same-sex couples. The court said the city of Philadelphia wrongly limited its relationship with the group as a result of the agency’s policy. The ruling was specific to the facts of the case, sidestepping bigger questions about how to balance religious freedom and ...

Court again leaves Affordable Care Act in place

This article was updated on June 17 at 5:16 p.m. In a much-anticipated decision, the Supreme Court on Thursday rejected another effort to dismantle the Affordable Care Act, the health care reform law often regarded as the signature legislative achievement of former President Barack Obama. The justices did not reach the main issue in the case: whether the entirety of the ACA was rendered unconstitutional when Congress eliminated the penalty for failing to obtain health insurance. Instead, by a v...

McConnell previews potential Supreme Court opposition

By Clare Foran | CNN Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell said on Monday that if his party regains the majority in 2022 it’s “highly unlikely” he would let President Joe Biden confirm a Supreme Court vacancy if one opened up in 2024, and was non-committal when asked about an opening at the end of 2023. “I think in the middle of a presidential election, if you have a Senate of the opposite party of the president, you have to go back to the 1880s to find the last time a vacancy was filled. So I ...

Justices united against “magic words” and judge-made rules on asylum seekers’ credibility

Last week in Garland v. Dai and Garland v. Alcaraz-Enriquez, the Supreme Court held that reviewing courts cannot treat an asylum seeker’s testimony as credible unless the agency first finds the applicant credible. The unanimous opinion, penned by Justice Neil Gorsuch, rejected the contrary approach of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit. In argument and briefing, the government contended that the 9th Circuit rule — which took asylum seekers’ testimony as credible when faced with agenc...

Court limits definition of “violent felony” in federal gun-possession penalty

A fractured Supreme Court on Thursday narrowed the scope of a key phrase in the Armed Career Criminal Act, ruling that crimes involving recklessness do not count as “violent felonies” for the purpose of triggering a key sentencing enhancement.

Justice Clarence Thomas did not join Kagan’s opinion but concurred in the result. That means that fi...

Diverse six-justice majority rejects broad reading of computer-fraud law

The Supreme Court’s decision on Thursday in Van Buren v.

Justice Amy Coney Barrett’s opinion for a majority 0f six firmly rejected the broad reading of that statute that the Department of Justice has pressed in recent years. Among other things, the CFAA criminalizes conduct that “exceeds authorized access” of a compute...
