Supreme Court docket after the hearings on the ACA
The Supreme Court has chosen to be involved in many of the major issues during this election campaign. From the NYT:
… the court will hear arguments in a challenge to Arizona’s tough immigration law, and it will soon confront cases concerning affirmative action in higher education and a request to reconsider the Citizens United campaign finance decision. Cases on voting rights and same-sex marriage are not far behind.
Hey they can’t let Etch A Sketch’s Super Pac do all the heavy lifting. Cmon!
Their end may be near so the push is on. They’re such an active court getting all this work done.
in case anyone missed it, they repealed the 4th amendment yesterday:
Supreme Court Rules for Strip Searches for Even Those Arrested for Minor Offenses – Circling back to the debate about whether the Supreme Court cares very much about its own legitimacy, here’s a ruling that it handed down today. The Supreme Court on Monday ruled by a 5-to-4 vote that officials may strip-search people arrested for any offense, however minor, before admitting them to jails even if the officials have no reason to suspect the presence of contraband. Justice Anthony M. Kennedy, joined by the court’s conservative wing, wrote that courts are in no position to second-guess the judgments of correctional officials who must consider not only the possibility of smuggled weapons and drugs but also public health and information about gang affiliations. About 13 million people are admitted each year to the nation’s jails, Justice Kennedy wrote. Under Monday’s ruling, he wrote, “every detainee who will be admitted to the general population may be required to undergo a close visual inspection while undressed.”
