They spent three years making 'RBG.' Here's what they learned about Justice Ginsburg

News that Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg underwent surgery at Memorial Sloan Kettering to remove two cancerous nodules in her left lung hit progressives hard. But Julie Cohen and Betsy West, who filmed a documentary on Ginsburg, attest to her "cyborg-level toughness" and write, "RBG's biggest challenge may be to pace herself."

‘The LEGO Movie 2’ Cast Includes Social Media Icon/Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg

Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Supreme Court Justice, walking meme machine and all-around good sport, took some time away from holding the entire fate of the United States on her shoulders to lend her voice to The LEGO Movie 2 cast. Ginsburg will be playing herself, in LEGO form (of course). I’m pretty sure this makes Ginsburg the first Supreme Court Justice to appear in a cartoon, except for that time Earl Warren appeared as the voice of the Galloping Ghost on an episode of Scooby-Doo*. In 2018, Ruth...

Fox & Friends apologizes for announcing death of Ruth Bader Ginsburg, who lives

Too bad, conservatives! Fox & Friends apologized on Monday after briefly airing a graphic suggesting that Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg is dead. As the show came back from commercials, they briefly showed a graphic of Ginsburg with the caption 1933-2019. It's established journalistic proactice to have pre-written graphics and obits and whatnot ready to roll for famous people. But having them floating around in production databases and content management systems, one click of a "Publ...

All life matters on Sanctity of Human Life Sunday

USA (MNN) -- Abortion isn’t the only sanctity of life issue, but it typically drives the conversation each year on Sanctity of Human Life Sunday. Thousands of people are taking part in today’s March for Life in Washington, DC. Abortion has increasingly become a political issue, too. President Trump’s nomination of Brett Kavanaugh last fall created the potential for a conservative majority on the Supreme Court and made the overturn of Roe v Wade a possibility. Earlier this month , pro-cho...

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...

Argument analysis: Justices weigh text and history of 21st Amendment in challenge to state residency requirement for liquor licenses

Ratified in 1933, the 21st Amendment ended Prohibition – which (fun fact!) was established by the 18th Amendment, ratified 100 years ago today. It also gave states broad power to regulate alcoholic beverages. At today’s oral argument in Tennessee Wine and Spirits Retailers Association v. Blair, the justices considered exactly how expansive that regulatory power is. In particular, does the 21st Amendment allow Tennessee to impose a two-year residency requirement for anyone who wants a retail lice...

Argument analysis: Justices grapple with notice-and-comment rulemaking for Medicare and beyond

Medicare was before the Supreme Court yesterday in a case that could have significant implications for administrative law. At the granular level, the case, Azar v. Allina Health Services, concerns whether the Department of Health and Human Services was permitted to change, without notice and comment, an important reimbursement formula for hospitals that treat many low-income patients. That question alone determines the fate of $3 to $4 billion. But the stakes are higher because the case requires...

Opinion analysis: Justices uphold arbitration exemption for transportation workers in rare victory for arbitration opponents

Arbitration month at the Supreme Court continued this morning with the unanimous decision in New Prime Inc. v. Oliveira – following by a single week the unanimous decision in Henry Schein v. Archer & White Sales. New Prime, though, is anything but business as usual: Justice Neil Gorsuch’s opinion for a unanimous court rejects a claim for arbitration for the first time in a string of more than a dozen of the Supreme Court’s cases stretching back more than a decade. Indeed, I doubt the court has r...

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...

Lindsey Graham ‘hell-bent’ on replacing Ruth Bader Ginsburg despite Supreme Court saying she is 'cancer free'

Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg has said she doesn't plan on retiring before the presidential election in 2020 — but Republicans appear to have other ideas. Donald Trump’s White House and close allies have begun preparing for her replacement, with senior Republicans like Senator Lindsey Graham saying he will be “hell-bent” on replacing the notorious liberal justice with a conservative upon her departure — a move that could radically shift the balance of the court for decades. Despite...
