Empirical SCOTUS: If Ginsburg leaves, it could be the liberals’ biggest loss yet – A look back at previous justices replaced with more conservative successors

The saga over Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s health seems to ebb and flow from the headlines almost daily. Part of the mystery relates to the amount of information shared with the public. We know that, while treating Ginsburg for rib fractures, doctors found malignant lesions in her lungs that were promptly removed, and that subsequent tests have shown no evidence of any other cancer. Ginsburg has since missed oral arguments and is reportedly recovering at home while keeping current with the cour...

Reargument analysis: Justices seek a “middle position” in takings litigation case

During yesterday’s argument in Knick v. Township of Scott – the second time the court has heard the case this term – the justices seemed to be looking for a compromise position. The court granted review in the case to decide whether to overrule a 1985 precedent, Williamson County Regional Planning Commission v. Hamilton Bank, which requires local-government takings plaintiffs to follow the state’s compensation procedures before alleging a taking in federal court. Williamson County is controversi...

‘Homecoming’ Season 2 Will Not Feature Julia Roberts

If you were hoping to see Julia Roberts in Homecoming season 2, I have some bad news. While Roberts will remain an executive producer on the fantastic Amazon series from Mr. Robot creator Sam Esmail, she won’t be returning to play her season 1 character Heidi Bergman. This is a bit disappointing, as Roberts turned in a wonderful performance in season 1. THR is reporting that Julia Roberts isn’t coming back for Homecoming season 2, and I’m sad about that. Per their story, “Roberts’ initial de...

Argument analysis: When is the government not really the government for immunity from tort liability?

In Thacker v. Tennessee Valley Authority, the government contends (and the lower courts agreed) that the TVA should be immune from tort liability to shield executive policy-making, even when the TVA is engaged in arguably commercial activity. The petitioner, Gary Thacker, argues that an entirely different analysis applies to the TVA, which Congress has made broadly subject to suit without expressly preserving policy immunity. Ann O’Connell Adams, assistant to the U.S. solicitor general (Art Li...

Argument analysis: Quiescent bench dubious about broad fee awards in copyright cases

The week’s second argument, Rimini Street v. Oracle USA, has the justices considering the scope of fees available to a prevailing party in litigation under the federal Copyright Act. Sitting for the second week without Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, the bench was remarkably quiescent. To the extent the justices evinced any strong interest in the case, they seemed skeptical about allowing broad fee awards. The case calls for a reading of Section 505 of the Copyright Act, which defines the recove...

Steal This Look: A Grand Scale Double-Height Kitchen in Brooklyn

In an 1850s brick townhouse in Brooklyn’s Cobble Hill neighborhood, serial renovators Jean Lee and Tzu-Wei Lee called on architect Elizabeth Roberts to rethink the building, which had been divided intwo four apartments, as one. The biggest change? A three-story addition to the back of the building which now houses the fully custom double-height kitchen. The 1,200-square-foot space is inspired by modern Shaker design with an almost Seventies style twist. That’s thanks to beadboard-paneled cabinet...

The Genius Way Julia Roberts Repurposed Last Week's Manicure For the Critics’ Choice Awards

Julia Roberts knows her way around nail trends and how to clapback at haters who diss on her manicures, but she also knows how to revamp a look from one red carpet to another. Always on trend, Roberts's gold manicure from the Golden Globes was transformed into an edgy, angled french manicure for the Critics' Choice Awards, thanks to a swipe of black polish over the top of the gold base. Genius. The manicure was created by Mazz Hanna, the talent behind many of Roberts's nail designs, who explain...

There is no "mandate." And oh, by the way, Judge O'Connor didn't enjoin enforcement of any provision of the ACA, let alone "strike down" Obamacare in its entirety.

All the many critics are absolutely correct that Judge O’Connor’s severability analysis in his Affordable Care Act opinion yesterday is indefensible.  By focusing so intently on the severability argument, however, many of those critics concede (or assume) far too much at the front end, which is, if anything, even less defensible. The linchpin of O’Connor’s judgment—the part that triggers his severability analysis in the first place—is his conclusion that once the Affordable Care Act’s “shared r...

Experts Predict New SCOTUS Majority Will Take On Extreme Gerrymandering

The Supreme Court is slated to hear two blockbuster cases involving extreme partisan gerrymandering this spring—the last best chance for the nation’s highest court to take action on this pivotal issue before the 2020 census and once-a-decade redistricting process the following year. With swing vote Anthony Kennedy retired from the bench and Justice Brett Kavanaugh cementing the court’s 5-4 conservative majority, there’s a legitimate fear that their ruling may not institute a fairer system.

"If we had the California republic, which is something some people in California would like, it would have a lot of leverage over Nevada that it doesn’t have now, wouldn’t it?"

"Nevada would have to be careful about what it did to California. But the situation now is different because they’re states in the union."Said Justice Alito, at oral argument yesterday in Franchise Tax Board of California v. Hyatt (transcript). The case, discussed at SCOTUSblog, raises the question "Whether Nevada v. Hall, a 1979 Supreme Court ruling that said a state could be haled into another state’s courts without its consent, should be overruled."Arguing for the man who sued California in N...

Argument analysis: Justices grapple with preclusion and “occupation” in Crow Tribe treaty case

On Tuesday, the Supreme Court heard argument in its latest foray into Indian treaty interpretation, Herrera v. Wyoming. The case concerns the persistence of the Crow Tribe’s hunting right in the 1868 Second Treaty of Fort Laramie. In an occasionally meandering argument, the Supreme Court repeatedly circled the three issues at the core of the case: issue preclusion, the implications of the court’s holding in its 1999 decision in Minnesota v. Mille Lacs Band of Chippewa Indians, and the meaning of...

The Supreme Court restored it, and that company filed for cert under seal. Suspense! [Na...

The Public Might Soon Get More Info In Mystery Mueller-Tied Grand Jury Case

After weeks in which filings related to a secret grand jury case linked to the special counsel probe were submitted out of the public view, it appears that more may soon become known about the case. The appellant in the case Tuesday asked the Supreme Court allow it to file its appeal under seal but notably with a redacted version for the public record. It is not specified whether the appellant in the case is a foreign-owned company resisting a grand jury subpoena or prosecutors. However, give...

Argument analysis: Gleaning the FDA’s meaning for impossibility pre-emption

Much of the federal government may be in shutdown mode, but the Supreme Court is still open for business. The Supreme Court opened its January session Monday morning with argument in Merck Sharp & Dohme Corp. v. Albrecht, a case about the workings of the Food & Drug Administration (still partially open) and when the agency’s actions may insulate drug manufacturers from state tort suits through “impossibility pre-emption.” An important and often-used litigation defense for manufacturers, impossib...

Ginsburg Missing From Supreme Court

Chief Justice Roberts, said she can just call in her decision. Is that even within the scope of the Supreme Court Law? Now you pay millions to get to the Supreme Court and they can call it in like a traffic court judge. She should be removed if she doesn't have the decency and respect to do things fairly. What an ego.

Purported SCOTUS originalists and liberals, showing yet again that they are faint-hearted, refuse to consider extending jury trial rights to restitution punishments

I noted in this post the array of per curiam rulings and statements that the Supreme Court released today to get 2019 off to an interesting criminal justice start.  Regular readers will not be surprised to learn that one particular decision, namely the decision to deny certiorari in Hester v. US, has me revved up.  Hester involves a claim that the Sixth Amendment jury trial right recognized in Apprendi, Blakely, Booker and Southern Union is applicable to cases in which findings are essential for...
