Major rulings?

I'd be thrilled if we actually got more than a single decision today, given how the past couple weeks have gone.  And I still think the Trump records cases will be on the final day of issuing decisions, probably a week or two from now at this rate.

Yeah, it has been disappointing that they've been trickling these out. That makes me nervous.

I figure we'll get CFPB or the abortion case today.  Maybe one other, not-as-major, decision as well.

In the Bit Twit's various tax release cases, which should be the easiest rulings in the history of the Court, what's the over/under they will a) get it wrong or b) not be able to find the haystack in the needle.  I personally think both a and b are probably very biggestly.

Does the Espinoza v. Montana Department of Revenue have implication for the school voucher program? What about other private school funding issues?

Some law talking type, help me out here. My Cracker Jack Official Law GED does nothing for me.

Everything has to be released by the end of the month, as far as i know.  Since June 30 is when the current term ends and things shut down until cases and arguments spin up again in the fall.

Nope.  It can go into July and it has in the past.  The folks at SCOTUSblog are not expecting things to be wrapped up this week.

Given Trump's current mental state, if he loses his tax cases he may well stroke out.

I'm guessing the NY State case goes to the state, but the House subpoena cases could go either way.  They should get the same ruling, but I'm expecting some twisted argument to deny them.

Look at the bright side: we will have clearly codified presidential harassment into the legal system so that we can be sure that good faith investigations of future presidents will happen while investigations premised on bad faith will not. Right? Right?

I would say we are going to pass those laws sometime in February or thereafter.

If the court rules against Trump on the tax case, I think Trump may actually stroke out (and not on the golf course).  Hmm, actually with the amount of time Trump spends on the golf course, he may actually stroke out there.  Either that or he may order a nuke strike.

Trump might find finally find it a relief that he is officially f$cked.  They say guilty people sleep like babies once arrested because they see the crisis as finally being over.

Look how calm and relaxed Cohen is when he finally realizes he is going to prison.  I want to know how Republican Senators are feeling today.

Least to most likely in my mind:

4) They determine that Congress has the power to subpeona records from a third party and the president doesn't have the authority to intercede.

3) They determine that asking for the records constitutes presidential harassment and the president has the authority to use the state protect his personal records from review while in office.

2) The boring answer that New York State can get the records but Congress cannot because Congress is playing silly buggers claiming they need them for a policy reason rather than an investigative reason.

1) The majority of the Supreme Court remand it to a lower court to answer some question of minor legal import in order to kick the can past November.

I don't.

Although we do have an additional decision day tomorrow at 10am, then Thursday at 10am.  I do think we'll have decisions coming next week, though.

Since the law has been on the books for almost 100 years and never been a concern I'm figuring the strict constructionists will find it unconstitutional - much like they find anything that "provides for the common defense, promotes the general welfare, establishes justice and ensures domestic tranquility" also unconstitutional as these words in quotes are CLEARLY socialistic.

I never saw SCOTUS live, one of my biggest regrets. I had tickets to see them opening on the Beastie Boys/Rage Against the Machine tour but unfortunately that got cancelled.

Looks like we're getting at least two decisions today!

First decision out
 
2020-06-29 10:06:10 AM  
Today the court holds that the government can enforce the condition as to the foreign affiliates of US nonprofits: "plaintiffs' foreign affiliates are foreign organizations," Kavanaugh writes, "and foreign organizations operating abroad have no First Amendment rights."

I'm thinking this decision might have some ramifications down the line that make this a bigger deal than just this case.

imaconnect4guy: First decision out


US government isn't violating free speech only giving HIV/AIDs money to groups that oppose sex work.
 
2020-06-29 10:07:37 AM  
Hmm, not a horribly surprising ruling.  The Court isn't typically all that concerned with First Amendment protections outside of the US.  Thomas' take is a little more asinine, arguing that it isn't technically compelled speech since they can still refuse the money, but it's at least colorable, similar to tying federal funding to states passing certain laws.

Roberts: I joined the dissent in Whole Woman's Health and con- tinue to believe that the case was wrongly decided. The question today however is not whether Whole Woman's Health was right or wrong, but whether to adhere to it in deciding the present case.

That was a really close call then.
