Re: US Supreme Court Discussions

The court has confirmed that Thursday and Friday this week will be opinion days in addition to Wednesday (which was obviously going to be the case). With 14 cases left, they could clear them all out this week, though I am still betting on them leaving the Trump immunity case (as well as Fischer , th...

Re: Gender and threats to "Normality" (spilit from "The challenges ahead")

Now that the Supreme Court has taken this issue on, here is an excellent law review article by Anthony Michael Kreis (at the Duke University Law Review) explaining why the reasoning of Bostock (which I should have explained above ruled, in an opinion surprisingly written by Justice Gorsuch) that gen...

Re: Nature Pics

Almost all of the potted plants and the ones in the raised beds are protected by deer netting. But they have done a number of the wildflowers in the yard, as you can see from that one fawn. I'm not sure what the dried brown stuff that the mama doe is eating and the other fawn is trying to get. A cou...

Re: Gender and threats to "Normality" (spilit from "The challenges ahead")

This is probably the most important case the court has taken up for the next term. Like Stern I am skeptical that the court will extend Bostock into this context, but then, I was surprised by Bostock so we'll see (click on the tweet to read the whole thread). https://twitter.com/mjs_DC/status/180523...

Another possible opportunity to see how widespread that popularity is.

An intruder broke into the home of Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi and attacked her 82 year old husband Paul Pelosi with a hammer, injuring him significantly. While no motive has been established, it is reported that the intruder was yelling "where is Nancy" before attacking her husband...

That's it! Outside the gates of Minas Tirith, just before Gandalf comes to get him to heal Faramir, Éowyn and Merry.

I am very happy to see that, Inanna! I remember well how disappointed you were when you first read it. It sure is a different kind of book that JS&MN.

Re: US Supreme Court Discussions

Five cases today. The most significant of them is the last one, United States v. Rahimi , in which the court reversed the radical Fifth Circuit's outlandish decision that individuals subject to a domestic violence restraining order could not be prevented from possessing a gun. Only Thomas dissented,...

Re: US Supreme Court Discussions

There are, by my count, 19 cases left to resolve this term. Tomorrow was already announced as an opinion day, and the court just announced that Wednesday will be another opinion day (which almost certainly means that Monday and Tuesday will not be). Assuming that there also opinions on Thursday and ...
