Why Does Justice Kavanaugh Write Concurrences?

On Monday, Justice Kavanaugh spoke at Notre Dame Law School. I've transcribed his remarks. At the 38:20 mark, Dean Cole asked, somewhat in jest, if NCAA v. Alston would extend to law review editors. Dean Cole: So since you're using sports analogies, next question is, do you think your concurrence in NCAA versus Alston could cover fields and bodies beyond college football, for example, like law journals, or the Notre […]

Supreme Court says justices ‘actively cooperated’ in leak probe

“During the course of the investigation, I spoke with each of the Justices, several on multiple occasions. The Justices actively cooperated in this iterative process, asking questions and answering mine,” Curley said. Curley suggested that there was no “credible” information pointing to any of the justices or their spouses as sources for POLITICO’s story last May disclosing the draft opinion and reporting that the court was poised to overturn the […]

A Federal Judge Blocks New Jersey’s Sweeping Restrictions on Public Gun Possession

Last June in New York State Rifle & Pistol Association v. Bruen, the Supreme Court held that states may not require gun owners to "demonstrate a special need for self-protection distinguishable from that of the general community" before they can exercise the constitutional right to bear arms.

Kevin McCarthy finally finds enough concessions to drag himself across the finish line

It took 15 votes and a near a near fistfight, but after a string of humiliating losses, Kevin McCarthy managed a humiliating victory. He has the résumé entry he’s been working toward for years: speaker of the House. Luckily for him, he doesn’t seem to care about anything but the title—because, after all of the concessions he made to get the title, he sure won’t be wielding much of the power generally presumed to go […]

Pennsylvania politics are heated. It soon could be utter chaos.

At the heart of the matter is a disagreement over which party has the right to set the special elections to fill seats that became empty because two Democratic state House members resigned for higher office and another died. Democrats want to hold the contests — which they are expected to win — right away, allowing them to claim their majority next year. GOP legislators, meanwhile, hope to push back […]

Supreme Court Issues Dubious Ruling that Perpetuates Title 42 “Public Health” Expulsions of Migrants

On Tuesday, the Supreme Court issued a 5-4 ruling that is likely to have the effect of perpetuating Title 42 "public health" expulsions of migrants at the US southern border. The decision stays a November DC district court ruling holding that the policy was illegal because it violates the Administrative Procedure Act, until the Supreme Court has a chance to consider the case more fully. Since March 2020, over 2 […]
