U.S. Supreme Court rules California must pay private businesses to allow union access

By Ariane de Vogue and Veronica Stracqualursi | CNN The US Supreme Court said Wednesday that California cannot allow unions to enter the private property of agricultural businesses to address workers unless the businesses are compensated for the visit, in a case that could have broad property rights implications. The ruling will imperil not only union organizers in California seeking to reach workers but could make it more difficult for the government to allow temporary access in other areas. C...

Dodgers have asked starting pitchers to carry a heavy workload

SAN DIEGO — There was plenty of speculation this spring about what going back to a 162-game regular season after last year’s compressed 60-game schedule would do to pitching staffs. Starter workloads, in particular, seemed to be ripe for cutback this season. Going into Tuesday’s game, however, the Dodgers had leaned heavily on their starting pitchers. Despite the fact that they have had only four true starters for most of the past seven weeks since Dustin May’s injury, Dodgers starting pitchers ...

Despite fear-mongering, Amy Coney Barrett upholds Obamacare

The Supreme Court just voted 7-2 to uphold the Affordable Care Act (ACA, or Obamacare), rejecting a GOP-led challenge to the constitutionality of the individual mandate. Aside from the fact that we’re now stuck with the law for good, the decision exposes the farce that was Democratic senators’ opposition to Amy Coney Barrett’s confirmation. First, let’s refresh our memories. On October 26, 2020, 48 members of the Senate voted against the nomination of Justice Amy Coney Barrett under the pretext ...

Determining Judicial Ethical Conduct: Not So Straightforward? Part I

INTRODUCTION Time was the community or advocacy activity of lawyers with judicial aspirations centred around fundraising and other activities related to participation in our major political parties. Eventually, some of these lawyers found themselves rewarded with a judicial appointment. They cut their ties, as far as anyone knew, with their favoured party. It was not difficult to end their pre-judicial activity and remove themselves from community involvement. More recently, however, with the ne...

Court requires religious exemption but leaves many questions unanswered

This article is the final entry in a symposium on the court’s decision in Fulton v. City of Philadelphia. Holly Hollman is general counsel and associate executive director of Baptist Joint Committee for Religious Liberty. In Fulton v. City of Philadelphia, the court came to a surprisingly unanimous result: Philadelphia violated Catholic Social Services’ free exercise rights by denying it a contract based on the agency’s refusal to comply with the city’s nondiscrimination policy. How did the cou...

Albert Pujols on his Dodgers days: ‘This is the most fun that I’ve had in awhile’

SAN DIEGO — The shade stretched all the way up I-5 to Anaheim. “This is the most fun that I’ve had in a while,” Albert Pujols said Monday afternoon about his time with the Dodgers. “I’m having a great time right now, enjoying every moment, And, I’m just glad every time I’m out there I can help this ballclub to win and that’s my goal. I really don’t think ahead and just really focus on the moment and I’m enjoying this moment right now.” On the field, Pujols has been exactly what the Dodgers hoped...

Justices scale back “unreviewable authority” of administrative patent judges

The Supreme Court ruled Monday that more than 200 administrative patent judges in the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office must be subject to greater supervision by the agency director in order to comply with the Constitution’s appointments clause. The decision in United States v. Arthrex, Inc. was fragmented. The court ruled 5-4 that the level of authority exercised by the patent judges is incompatible with the Constitution because the patent judges are not nominated by the president and confirmed...

Dodgers complete sweep of last-place Diamondbacks

PHOENIX — There was such a significant percentage of Dodgers fans at Chase Field this weekend – roaring at Dodger home runs, booing a member of the home team (Josh Reddick) for past transgressions committed in another league – that they must have felt like road games for the Arizona Diamondbacks. And that is not a good feeling for them. The Dodgers came to town for the weekend, filled the stands with their fans and collected their door prize – a three-game sweep of the Diamondbacks, wrapped up w...

Dodgers find themselves in unexpected 3-team race in NL West

PHOENIX — The Dodgers head to San Diego on Monday for another showdown series … between second- and third-place teams. As the midpoint of the season nears, the National League West is home to the teams with the league’s two best records. But the highly-anticipated battle in the NL West has featured an interloper. It is the San Francisco Giants who lead the division – and have the best record in the majors – not either of the two teams that dominated preseason hype. The Giants have been a surpris...

With LGBTQ Adoption Ruling, SCOTUS Nods To A Bigger Win For Conservatives Ahead

This article is part of TPM Cafe, TPM’s home for opinion and news analysis. It wasn’t a dramatic expansion of religious rights – not yet. But the Supreme Court’s ruling in favor of a Catholic adoption agency that had been excluded from Philadelphia’s foster programs for refusing to work with same-sex couples will be consequential. It suggests that when the broader question of whether religious groups have the right to discriminate does come before the justices, they will likely uphold relig...

Dodgers coach Mark Prior says pitchers will adjust to MLB crackdown

PHOENIX — Things are about to change for Mark Prior’s charges. But the Dodgers pitching coach says things change all the time. “I honestly don’t know,” Prior said Saturday when asked how MLB’s planned crackdown on the use of grip-enhancing substances beginning Monday might affect the performance of the Dodgers’ pitchers. “It’s not going to change how we go about preparing for Monday. And if things do change then we adjust. That’s part of the game anyway. We adapt. You always have to go through a...

Dodgers’ Cody Bellinger, Max Muncy could return during Padres series

PHOENIX — The near-perfect climate has done wonders for others. Now the Dodgers are going to get healthy in San Diego. Both infielder Max Muncy (oblique) and outfielder/first baseman Cody Bellinger (hamstring) are on track to come off the injured list and rejoin the Dodgers’ lineup during the three-game series at Petco Park that begins Monday.

Devin Nunes' Family's Bizarrely Stupid Defamation Lawsuit Goes Off The Rails (techdirt)

As you may recall, Rep. Devin Nunes has been involved in a bunch of totally frivolous SLAPP suits that seem designed to try to intimidate journalists from writing stories criticizing Devin Nunes. A key one that seems to have gotten deeply under Nunes' skin is an Esquire piece from a few years ago entitled Devin Nunes’s Family Farm Is Hiding a Politically Explosive Secret written by reporter Ryan Lizza. In the fall of 2019 he sued over that article, and a few months later his family sued over it ...

Dodgers’ Walker Buehler having successful season without usual pile of strikeouts

LOS ANGELES — All around baseball, hitters are striking out more often than they ever have in the history of the sport. But not when they face Walker Buehler. By any measure, the young Dodgers right-hander is having an outstanding season. He ranks in the National League’s top 10 in ERA (2.38), adjusted ERA (159) and WHIP (0.94). He has pitched at least six innings in each of his 13 starts this season and allowed two runs or fewer in 10 of those starts. He will take a 14-inning scoreless streak i...

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 holds that city’s refusal to make referrals to faith-based agency violates Constitution

This article was updated on June 17 at 6:52 p.m. In a clash between religious freedom and public policies that protect LGBTQ people, the Supreme Court ruled Thursday that Philadelphia violated the First Amendment’s free exercise clause when the city stopped working with a Catholic organization that refused to certify same-sex couples as potential foster parents. The ruling was a victory for Catholic Social Services, an organization associated with the Archdiocese of Philadelphia, and two foster...

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...

Dodgers’ patient approach with Steven Souza Jr. pays off

LOS ANGELES — When the Houston Astros released Steven Souza Jr. from his minor-league contract in March, the 32-year-old outfielder thought his baseball playing days might be over. He had batted .095 in spring training. He started to wonder what might be next. The Dodgers didn’t give Souza enough time to switch careers. They reached out the next day, scheduled a conference call with Souza, and before long came to agreement on a minor league contract. After getting back to basics in the batter’s ...

Trevor Bauer, Dodgers pitchers prepare for MLB crackdown on grip enhancers

LOS ANGELES — The crackdown is coming. In a memo to teams and a press release, Major League Baseball announced Tuesday that there will be new enforcement of the rule against using foreign substances on the baseball that could include 10-game suspensions. The release asserted that “existing on-field enforcement process has not deterred an increasing number of violations.” Umpires will conduct “regular checks of all pitchers” whether the opposing team challenges for it or not. The new standard for...

Dodgers’ Cody Bellinger could be headed to IL if hamstring doesn’t improve

LOS ANGELES — Cody Bellinger missed his third consecutive game Monday and could be headed to the injured list soon. Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said Bellinger’s injured left hamstring was “better today than yesterday” after the center fielder went through a pre-game workout that included agility drills and some light running. But Roberts said it was “unlikely” Bellinger will play Tuesday either. The “best-case scenario” would be for the 2019 National League MVP to work out Wednesday afternoon a...

Dodgers place Max Muncy (oblique) on 10-day injured list

LOS ANGELES ― Between his power and patience on offense, and his ability to shift effortlessly between first and second base on defense, Max Muncy has been the Dodgers’ most valuable player this season. Until recently, he was equal parts healthy and productive. Muncy missed one game entirely and was relegated to the bench in two others, after he injured his ankle on June 4 in Atlanta. On Friday, Muncy strained his right oblique muscle early in a 12-1 victory over the Texas Rangers. On Saturday, ...

LOS ANGELES — With recent progress, Dodgers shortstop Corey Seager could be back on the field for a minor-league injury-rehabilitation assignment within the next two weeks – a timetable that could put him back in the Dodgers’ lineup early in July. Dodgers manager Dave Roberts has been reluctant to acknowledge any kind of expectations for Seager’s return from a broken bone in his right hand. But he accepted the two-week estimate. “I think that’s fair,” Roberts said. “That sounds reasonable.” Seag...
