    Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor is taking the high road regarding Justice Brett Kavanaugh, stating he is already part of the “Supreme Court family,” despite the intense criticism her liberal supporters have lathered upon him. Appearing on CNN with David Axelrod, Sotomayor noted that the court adjusted very quickly to the addition of Kavanaugh to their bench, CNN reported. “When you’re charged with working together for most of the remainder of your life, you have to create a relationship,” Sotomayor told Axelrod during an interview that will air Saturday evening. “The nine of us are now a family, and we’re...
  • Justice Sotomayor on Kavanaugh Coming to the Supreme Court: 'The Nine of Us Are Now a Family'

    Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor says that newly appointed Justice Brett Kavanaugh is already like “family.” Sotomayor recently sat down with David Axelrod, for an episode of CNN’s “Axe Files” that will air Saturday, and spoke about welcoming in the new justice. Kavanaugh was confirmed after a highly publicized Senate Judiciary Committee hearing in September. He was accused by Professor Christine Blasey Ford of sexual assault in the 1980s when they were both teenagers. Kavanaugh vehemently denied the accusation and was eventually confirmed with a 50-48 vote in the Senate. Sotomayor said among Supreme Court justices, typically a lifetime appointment,...

    In a highly unusual move, lawyer Tom Goldstein asked the US Supreme Court on Friday evening to declare Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein as the acting attorney general, instead of Matthew Whitaker who currently holds the job. Goldstein also represented Maryland's Attorney General in a similar court filing at the district court level earlier this week. Goldstein's motion was filed in connection with a gun rights case that is before the Supreme Court as a petition for a writ of certiorari, meaning the nine Justices will meet in conference at a date still to be determined to decide whether to...

    Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg plans to continue her workout routine next week after recently injuring herself in a fall, her trainer reportedly said. “With three cracked ribs, I won’t have her on the elliptical right away," Ginsburg's trainer, Bryant Johnson, told Vox in an article published Tuesday. "My warm up will be gentler — and then we’ll adjust accordingly. When she gets stronger, we’ll resume the regular workouts.”

    US President Donald Trump has sent the nomination of Neomi Rao, a prominent Indian-American attorney and academic, to the Senate to replace Justice Brett Kavanaugh on the powerful D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals. If confirmed by the Senate, Rao, who is 45, would be able to serve a lifetime post on the D.C. court, largely considered the second highest court of the land and a training ground for future Supreme Court justices. If the Senate confirms her, she would be the second Indian-American judge in the D.C. Circuit Court after judge Sree Srinivasan, who was appointed during the previous Obama...

    On the Michigan ballot for Supreme Court there are 6 candidates, you can vote for 2. However if you don't look up beforehand there is no party affiliation to guide your decision. The candidates are: Samuel Bagenstos Megan Kathleen Cavanagh Elizabeth T. Clement Justice of Supreme Court Doug Dern Kerry Lee Morgan Kurtis T. Wilder Justice of Supreme Court In my research it appears that Clement and Wilder are the closest to being conservative. If you agree the easiest way to identify them on your ballot is they both have "Justice of Supreme Court" associated with their names, the others...

    The Senate Judiciary Committee late Saturday released a 414-page report in which the panel members say they found no supporting evidence for any of the allegations of sexual misconduct made against Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh ahead of his confirmation. "Committee investigators spoke with 45 individuals and took 25 written statements relating to the various allegations made in the course of the #SCOTUS confirmation process," the Senate Judiciary Committee tweeted Saturday. "In neither the committee's investigation nor in the supplemental background investigation conducted by the FBI was there ANY evidence to substantiate or corroborate any of the allegations." The committee...

    A woman who accused Justice Kavanaugh of raping her when he was in high school has admitted to federal investigators that she made up the claims because she was "angry" and "wanted attention." Senator Grassley has now referred the false accuser to the Justice Department for investigation on Friday after her confession that she "just wanted to get attention" on Thursday.

    A woman who accused Justice Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault admitted to congressional investigators she made up her claims to "get attention."According to a letter sent to Attorney General Jeff Sessions late Friday afternoon, Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley referred Judy Munro-Leighton for criminal prosecution and revealed her actions were part of a ploy to take down Kavanaugh's nomination. From the letter, bolding is mine:  Given her relatively unique name, Committee investigators were able to use open-source research to locate Ms. Munro-Leighton and determine that she: (1) is a left-wing activist; (2) is decades older than Judge Kavanaugh; and (3)...

    ISLAMABAD — A Christian woman who spent eight years on death row under Pakistan’s blasphemy law was acquitted and ordered released Wednesday by the country’s top court, a ruling that raised fears of violence by religious extremists who held angry protests over the verdict. Asia Ms. Bibi was in an undisclosed location for her safety, and her lawyer said he expected that she would soon leave the country. France and Spain have offered asylum to the 54-year-old mother of five, who is a Roman Catholic. Chief Justice Mian Saqib Nisar, who had received death threats, announced the landmark verdict that...

    The 2018 midterms are here. It’s close. It was never that way heading into October. The Supreme Court nomination of Brett Kavanaugh was vicious. It was nasty. It was the weaponization of the Me Too movement in an attempt to clip a qualified judge from taking his spot on the court; Kavanaugh was besieged at the last minute with baseless and unsubstantiated allegations of sexual misconduct. It was a slog, but Kavanaugh was confirmed earlier this month. It also lit a fire under the GOP base, which was at long last energized, infuriated, and ready to vote, especially GOP women....

  • Transgender fight could prove major test for Supreme Court

    The fight over civil rights protections for transgender people could prove to be a major test for the Supreme Court, particularly its conservative wing, as justices weigh whether to take up the issue this term. The court has a request before it to hear a case challenging whether civil rights laws that prohibit discrimination on the basis of sex in employment extend to transgender workers. It’s a dispute that may have a significant impact on the Trump administration’s reported plans to exclude federal protections for transgender people by narrowly defining gender. The New York Time reported last week that the...

    During day one of Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation hearings, Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) accused him of being beyond “pro-gun” and suggested more people will die in mass shootings if he is confirmed. Feinstein said: “If the Supreme Court were to adopt your reasoning I fear the number of victims would continue to grow and citizens would be rendered powerless in enacting sensible gun laws.”
