  • US Supreme Court Upholds Trump's Travel Ban

Yusuf Abdi, a USA citizen who works at the International Institute of New England, a refugee resettlement agency, says his mother and three siblings have been trying to flee violence in their home country of Somalia. Picture taken on June 23, 2018.

Those cases are likely to return to the Supreme Court in the near future, but the conservative jurist President Donald Trump picks to replace Kennedy may be more likely to say that there is no standard courts can use to evaluate partisan gerrymanders. "He's been a great justice for the Supreme Court".

The travel ban has been in place since December, when the Supreme Court ruled that it could go into full effect, pending legal challenges.

Kennedy has been the only conservative justice willing to endorse any limits on severe punishments under the Eighth Amendment. "His departure will enable Trump to nominate a conservative replacement, skewing the court to the right for decades as the remaining justices serve out their lifetime tenures".

The very thought of this will dismay Democrats. But there's no actual evidence that Collins or Lisa Murkowski (R-Ala.) would buck their party on such a consequential vote. and a smart nominee will avoid commenting on how they'd rule on hypothetical cases, as Justice Neil M. Gorsuch did in his confirmation hearings previous year. But the longstanding nature of the court's close division obscures the sheer volume of deciding votes that Kennedy has cast on numerous issues that concern the country the most.

Thapar, 49, was handpicked by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell to serve as the U.S. attorney for the Eastern District of Kentucky. In the year since the Gorsuch vote, the Senate has added one more Democratic moderate whose next election is looming on the horizon: Doug Jones of Alabama, who faces re-election in 2020. "The term was a dramatically and stunningly successful one for the court's conservative majority".

The Supreme Court found that the evidence was "plainly insufficient" to prove that the 2013 Legislature acted in "bad faith". The Supreme Court handed American Express a win Monday in a lawsuit over rules it imposes on merchants who accept its cards.

With the news that conservative Justice Anthony Kennedy is to retire, a huge opportunity has landed in Donald Trump's lap.

Kennedy was considered a more centrist judge, as he sided with Democrat-appointed justices on key issues, such same sex marriage and abortion rights. On Wednesday, after Kennedy's resignation was announced, Donnelly gave an emphatically milquetoast statement in response to the news of an eventual confirmation vote, a sure sign of how carefully he'll have to navigate the process; Manchin appeared to voice support for McConnell's confirmation schedule; and Heitkamp said that "two wrongs don't make a right", an allusion to Obama's scuppered nomination of Merrick Garland. He said the seat should be left open for the next president to fill.

Murkowski vowed a careful vetting of the pick, saying she has "extremely high" standards for the Supreme Court.

While Sotomayor's argument may not have won today, her opinion still paints a clear picture of how Trump's own tweets can be used to undermine his administration's goals. "And in many of those instances I think he understood that the Constitution needed to be interpreted as it's written", Leo said.
