    Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg will not attend scheduled talks in the upcoming weeks in Los Angeles and New York, following her surgery in December, after she missed Supreme Court arguments earlier this month, the event hosts said. The 85-year-old justice was supposed to attend an event on January 29 at Los Angeles' Skirball Cultural Center. A long-planned conversation between Ginsburg and the financier and philanthropist David Rubenstein was scheduled for February 6, and the 92nd Street Y said Wednesday that it was working to reschedule the event. "Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg regrets that she is unable to attend...

Ginsburg was scheduled to appear at the Skirball Center as part of a celebration of her career. An exhibit being shown at the center through March 10 is called “Notorius RBG: The Life and Times of Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

    The Supreme Court denied an effort to strip acting Attorney General Matthew Whitaker’s name from a pending case, swatting down a push to force the justices to send a signal that President Trump’s temporary pick is illegal. Lawyers had asked the justices to remove Mr. Whitaker and substitute Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, arguing that he should be the rightful head of the Justice Department under the law, after former Attorney General Jeff Sessions was ousted last year. The request came in a case involving Barry Michaels, who is challenging a law denying him the right to purchase a firearm...

  • Scotus - Don’t Blame the Framers

    What is the “Judicial Power?” It’s worth knowing because the Constitution’s Article III grants all of it to Scotus and inferior courts. Through the Judicial Power, may courts fabricate previously unknown rights? What about lawsuits against government climate or border wall policies? Is this what the Framers had in mind? The language of Article III § 2 makes clear the Framers did not envision federal judges rummaging around as they pleased through the Constitution and laws of the United States, but instead provided for resolution of disputes arising in a “judicial” manner. The business of federal courts is limited to...

    There are some opponents worthy of grudging respect. Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg is a terrible legal thinker, a leftist with no real respect for liberty and a confessed critic of the Constitution over its limitations upon the government’s ability to impose her fans’ pinko vision of soft, huggy tyranny upon Normal Americans. But I respect her as an opponent – to do otherwise would be to lie to ourselves that our opponents are hopeless and helpless. She’s a tough old bird, surviving cancer and other perils and yet she always comes back to torment us with her appalling jurisprudence. You...

    Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg will miss next week’s court sessions and work from home, but her recovery from early-stage lung cancer surgery remains "on track" and no further treatment is needed, the court announced Friday. “Justice Ginsburg will continue to work from home next week and will participate in the consideration and decision of the cases on the basis of the briefs and the transcripts of oral arguments. Her recovery from surgery is on track,” Supreme Court public information officer Kathy Arberg said in a statement. “Post-surgery evaluation indicates no evidence of remaining disease, and no further treatment...
  • Erik Brunetti's 'FUCT' clothing brand case to be heard by Supreme Court

    The Washington Times ^ | January 13, 2019 | Alex Swoyer
    A Supreme Court case to be heard this spring could have the justices dropping the F-bomb. The justices last week agreed to hear a challenge to trademark law involving a clothing brand named “FUCT” — leaving court watchers wondering how the justices will handle oral argument. The U.S. Patent and Trademark Office says the name appeared to be intended as a homonym for a vulgarity, and thus violates a federal law prohibiting “scandalous” trademarks. On that basis, PTO refused to register the trademark. Designer Erik Brunetti sued and won the first round in court, but in an unusual move both...

    Feminist activists have only one goal this year: to make sure abortions in all forms stay legal. As the Supreme Court decides whether or not to hear a case that could end legislation requiring aborted fetuses to be buried as human beings, feminists are panicking. This could be the first abortion-related case to be heard by a conservative-leaning court, and the first abortion case to be heard by Justice Brett Kavanaugh. Creator of the Daily Show and pro-abortion activist Lizz Winstead tweeted on Jan. 11, “Today SCOTUS decides whether it will hear an Indiana case requiring mandatory cremation/ burial for...

    Democratic lawmakers are divided over questions some see as a religious litmus test applied to candidates for the federal bench. The debate has turned into a war of words between members of Hawaii’s Congressional delegation “We cannot and will not tolerate prejudicial treatment of those with whom we disagree, any more than we would tolerate such treatment of those with whom we agree,” Rep Tulsi Gabbard (D-HI) wrote in a Jan. 8 op-ed for The Hill. Gabbard accused senators screening judicial candidates of “religious bigotry” and warned against legislators “weaponizing” questions of personal faith. At least two judicial candidates in...

    Planned Parenthood of the Rocky Mountains is fighting a unionization attempt from Service Employees International Union, despite the labor giant's emphatic support for the nation's largest abortion provider. In November the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB), the agency in charge of union elections and settling workplace disputes, granted SEIU Local 105's petition to hold an election for joining the union at several abortion clinics in Colorado. Planned Parenthood objected to the organization campaign and appealed to the Republican-controlled board. It disputed the fact that SEIU was attempting to organize a micro-unit and improperly excluded Planned Parenthood of the Rocky Mountains...

    She's the subject of a Hollywood biopic and is very much alive, but the White House has been in contact with Senate Republicans about possible replacements for the ailing 85-year old Supreme Court justice. The White House is even working on a short-list of possible nominees to replace Ginsburg, who broke her 25-year streak when she began missing oral arguments on Monday. The White House counsel's office is even trading names with the office of new Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham. Politico published a list of them Thursday. The short list of potential replacements for the ailing Ginsburg include...

    Speaking privately, a law clerk says the Justice's Cancer has come out of remission. Editor's Note; We first posted this story in September, 2018. Sadly we were correct, as Justice Ginsburg underwent surgery on December 15th to remove a cancerous growth from her lungs. We are reposting it since so many people contacted us to ask if it was true, which sadly, it is. She did not appear for oral arguments on January 7, 2019, & it is becoming increasingly clear that she will not ever return to the bench.

    Still recovering from her recent lung surgery at home, Justice Ginsburg was unable to attend oral arguments this week for the first time in her career on the Supreme Court. As a result, Politico reports the White House is apparently telling allies to prepare themselves for the possibility she could retire. The White House “is taking the temperature on possible short-list candidates, reaching out to key stakeholders, and just making sure that people are informed on the process,” said a source familiar with those conversations, who spoke on background given the delicate nature of the subject. “They’re doing it...

    Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg has called in sick for a couple of days now and the left is beginning to panic. The 85-year-old is recovering from surgery to remove cancer from her lungs, discovered when she went in for x-rays for broken ribs after a fall. It’s been a rough patch for her but I would caution to not count her out so easily. This is the first time she has missed oral arguments at the Supreme Court since she became a Supreme Court Justice.Ginsburg is a tough old bird. She has battled cancer and continued on...
