There have been a few news stories this week about the Supreme Court’s non-action on the DOMA and Same-Sex Marriage cases late last week and today. Gawker argues, surely as a joke, that the Court is being deliberately obtuse: Maybe they’ll make an announcement Monday, maybe they’ll wait until they meet again in January. Maybe [...]

The news that Mike Sacks has been tapped to become the Huffington Post’s first Supreme Court reporter is notable for two reasons. The first is that Mike did great work at F1@1F and Supreme Court fans should look forward to seeing what he can do as a full-time reporter with resources behind him. The second, [...]

Supreme Tweets

The market for legal news and analysis has expanded as quickly as any other and, to help you out, I’ve compiled a list of useful, interesting, and entertaining twitter-ers. For those of you who hate twitter, don’t forget that each of these pages has an RSS feed that you can add to your reader of [...]

The Washington Post has a fascinating article about Tom Goldstein that you can find here. The best quote is definitely the following: White House officials had asked to consult Goldstein on the court vacancy, but by the time he returned from a weekend in Paris, Obama had made his choice. Determined not to miss the [...]

Marty Lederman, known to many as one of the most insightful legal bloggers on the ‘net, will begin work immediately in the Office of Legal Council in the Obama administration. From 1994 to 2002, he served as Attorney Advisor in the OLC and he left in 2002 to take up a teaching position at Georgetown [...]

Over the course of the past week, both the blogosphere and mainstream media have been spending quite a bit of time over at the Supreme Court rumor mill. There has been a lot of buzz about two cases concerned with president-elect Obama’s citizenship, Donofrio v. Wells (08A407) and Wrotnowski v. Bysiewicz (08A469). The applications for [...]

Law blogs (or blawgs, if you’re a silly person) are going absolutely nuts over the impending Heller decision. Over at Volokh, the everawesome (and possibly evergreen) Professor Kerr has a post telling everyone to come back tomorrow and one commenter asks: On what day of the term was Brown v. Board of Education released? This [...]

A lot of pundits have been calling for the democrats to make the Court a major campaign issue in light of the massive setback that is known as the 2006 Term. Some argue that democrats need to ‘control the issue’ and take judicial activism to the people. The problem with this notion is that these [...]

I am going absolutely crazy with all the talk of Clarence Thomas and his total perversion of originalism. I’m not one to rant, but this is the closest I will ever come to declaring an absolute- Originalism is NEVER appropriate. Thats right, there is never an instance where it is appropriate to take our noses [...]
