WHY WAS BARR THE DECIDER? Legal Experts Puzzled By Attorney General’s Obstruction Decision

With the special counsel investigation complete, the four-page summary letter sent by Attorney General William Barr to Congress currently offers the only insight into the Mueller report. Mueller’s apparent choice to decline to make a charging decision on whether President Trump obstructed justice, and instead outsource that decision to Attorney General William Barr and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, has many experienced attorneys puzzled. Barbara McQuade, a former U.S. attorne...

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...

Anti-Obamacare Lawsuit Threatens To Drag Down GOP In The Midterms

A lawsuit filed by 20 GOP-controlled states and supported by the Trump administration could end up becoming a serious liability for Republican candidates this November. The suit seeks to gut the remainder of the Affordable Care Act, and will go before a conservative Texas federal judge in early September, almost exactly one month before voters go to the polls to decide which party controls the House, the Senate, and dozens of influential state and local seats. While Republicans have campaigned s...

Pence Family’s Shuttered Gas Stations Left Millions In Cleanup Costs To Public

GARDEN CITY, Ind. (AP) — Vice President Mike Pence turns nostalgic when he talks about growing up in small-town Columbus, Indiana, where his father helped build a Midwestern empire of more than 200 gas stations that provided an upbringing on the “front row of the American dream.” The collapse of Kiel Bros. Oil Co. in 2004 was widely publicized. Less known is that the state of Indiana — and, to a smaller extent, Kentucky and Illinois — are still on the hook for millions of dollars to clean up mor...

Republicans’ Double Talk On Exempting Rural Whites From Medicaid Rules

As the Trump administration encourages states to impose work requirements on their Medicaid programs, now in place in four states and counting, two conflicting messages have emerged. The administration’s top health care officials, as well as many Republican governors and lawmakers, have argued that people living in counties with high unemployment rates should be exempted from the work requirement — a seemingly neutral standard that in practice favors rural white residents and places a heavier...

As this title suggests, the piece is about gender disparities in sentencing, and here are excerpts: Official federal sentencing guidelines don’t distinguish between female and male offenders.  They often downplay or outright disregard circumstances that are common among women, such as the role of an offender as the sole caretaker for child...

We’re now halfway through the Supreme Court’s November sitting. Although the court didn’t grant any new cases last week, it gave us plenty of other things to talk about.
