On Tuesday, the court will release opinions at 10 a.m. We will be live-blogging starting at 9:20 a.m. at this link, where you can sign up for an email reminder when the live blog begins.

The justices have scheduled an additional conference on Wednesday. The court will release orders from that conference on Thursday at 9:30 a.m.

Why the delay?

Possibly/probably, though July opinions are not unheard of.

And I still think the most likely outcome is they find some way to remand it to a lower court to prevent any actual outcome before the election.

I feel like this is glazing over the point of the ruling, which is that "Booking" is different from "Booking.com" when it comes to trademarks, which does make sense. It's like I could make a jerky chew called Chewy, but I couldn't brand it Chewy.com

Even Thomas made a reasonable argument that a URL can be trademarked.
The uniqueness of DNS means Booking.com is distinct from Booking.co.uk or Booking.net or Booking.xxx, ect.

Also, RBG is the first decision?  If they're releasing all 10 today, Roberts has probably been a busy boy.

Copy/paste from yesterday's thread.

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.

Not really, Delta airlines was the first to register delta.com  (or at least they bought it from someone) and eventually registered the trademark delta.com. So they own the trademark delta.com    do they own the tradmark for deltablahblah.com  that is a different decision. It really depends on if the user is trying to confuse the audience by pretending it is Delta Airlines or not.

Is there any way possible that Trump would not know which way the court is going to go on his taxes before the decision was publicly issued?

It would make for an amazing fourth of July weekend if Trump loses on his taxes before the holiday.

Literally opinions put out in July. Each Supreme Court term starts the first week of October and usually ends by June, but this year (as in other years but not anytime recently) it has bled over into July.

Specifically, according to SCOTUSblog, there has been precisely one opinion released in July in the 21st century, and it was a per curiam. 

It's not entirely unprecedented, it's just not something that's happened in decades.

Roberts, Thomas, and Alitos' opinions all discussed the anti-Catholic origins of Montana's constitutional provision. 

But ISTG Alito is an unprofessional and bitter justice, even more so than Thomas. Other justices (and Scalia back in the day) tended to be more artful in their pokes at other justices but Alito here goes out of his way to be a dick about two rulings that were unrelated. And it's also one of those complaints where someone thinks they're being smart, "Oh? If x, then y!" when your reaction is, "yes. If x then y. I'd say you finally get it but you're being sarcastic." 

That's actually very revealing, because to think that way, Alito has to see everything as victories and losses for ideology rather than questions of law. And that pretty much convinces me he doesn't belong on the Court.
 
2020-06-30 11:27:06 AM  
Also: does anyone else see irony in Alito complaining about anti-Catholic bigotry by whining it wasn't easier to put people to death?

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.


Most to least likely for me, because the least likely scenario I can predict turns out to be HI FARKING LARIOUS.

1.) SCOTUS rules that the subpoena is valid & Mazars/DB must comply

(essentially tied for 1st)
2.) SCOTUS creates a test to determine if a Congressional subpoena is overly burdensome & remands it to District Court to apply. This effectively means it won't get resolved until after the election.

3.) 4 justices rule the subpoena is valid, 4 justices rule to remand, & Brett farking Kavanaugh rules that Congressional subpoenas are not justiciable, meaning it's not the job of the court to rule on whether the subpoenas are valid. This means that 4 justices say the subpoena is valid & 1 justice says the court can't rule on it, so from Mazars/Deutsche Bank's perspective, a majority of the court has not quashed the subpoena so they'd better comply.

There is zero chance this one goes for Donnie. There is, however, a fairly high likelihood that however it is decided, we will get some validation that some form of "Absolute Immunity" exists. Conservatives want it to be pretty expansive but even liberals are likely to assert that certain types of discussions are immune beyond what executive privilege provides.

If they were gonna rule for him, they'd have ruled earlier.

If they intend to push this out past the election, delaying helps. If they have to rule against him but conservatives don't wanna, delaying helps.
