  • Report: Trump Doesn’t Expect Ginsburg And Sotomayor To Make It Through His First Term

    President Donald Trump expects to nominate a total of four Supreme Court justices, claiming that three seats will likely become vacant during his first term, anonymous sources told Mike Allen of Axios. Trump expects to fill the seats of Justices Anthony Kennedy, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, and Sonia Sotomayor in addition to nominating Neil Gorsuch, who Trump nominated to fill former Justice Antonin Scalia’s seat earlier this year. Scalia died in 2016, well before Trump took office.
  • Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg Fails to Retire, Again; Also, Anthony Kennedy

    Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg declined to announce her retirement, once again, on the last day of the session on Monday. Also, Justice Anthony Kennedy declined to his announce his retirement, though he could do so over the summer. The 84-year-old Ginsburg — the “Notorious R.B.G.,” to her fans — has been on the Court since 1993, when she was appointed by President Bill Clinton. Since then, she has been a reliable liberal vote for 24 years....

  • Ginsburg Better Do Right Thing and Recuse Herself From Trump Travel Ban Case

    06/05/2017 4:35:49 AM PDT · by simpson96 · 20 replies ^ | 6/4/2017 | Robert Barnes
    If campaign comments are evidence of bias in a way that invalidates the actions of a decision-maker (as the 4th Circuit claimed), then the same logic the 4th Circuit used to deny Trump’s travel ban must require Ginsburg’s recusal in the Supreme Court’s review of that travel ban. The standard for recusal does not require a judge admit their bias. It only requires a review whether the public might “reasonably question” the “impartiality” of the judge in the matter. Liberals argued Justice Scalia merely hunting with a Vice President compelled his recusal. As Justice Scalia recognized, recusal is appropriate whenever...
  • How can Ginsburg participate in Travel Order case after her *campaign* statements about Trump?

    Donald TrumpÂ’s second Executive Order on visa entry from six majority Muslim countries is now before the Supreme Court. Trump is seeking review of the 4th CircuitÂ’s decision upholding a Maryland District Court injunction halting the Executive Order. In addition to the Petition for a Writ of Certiorari asking SCOTUS to hear the case on the merits, Trump has a request for a stay of the lower court injunctions pending a decision on the merits. The application is on a fast track, with the Court setting June 12 as the deadline for opposition papers. The 4th CircuitÂ’s decision found that...

    I’m not sure who Allan Smith at Business Insider ran into who put a bug in his ear to talk to Trump confidant Chris Ruddy, but it must have been one heck of a conversation. The bottom line is pretty much the summation found in the title of this article. In order to avoid any more angst or consternation around Supreme Court nominations, Trump could short circuit the entire discussion by getting Ruth Bader Ginsburg to retire now rather than trying to stick it out for four more years. And what would she get in return? A promise that...

    Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg and the late Justice Antonin Scalia were honored Monday by Allegheny College in Pennsylvania. During a speech she gave at the event, Justice Ginsburg described Senator Lindsey Graham as one of the “women of the Senate.” Justice Ginsburg gave a brief talk about civility and her friendship with the late Justice Scalia. She then made an implied contrast between the era in which she and Scalia were confirmed and the present day. “I thought back to the 1993 confirmation of my nomination to the court,” she said. She continued, “The hearing was altogether civil....

    The confirmation of Neil Gorsuch to the United States Supreme Court represents a huge political victory for Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, who gambled on blocking the nomination of Merrick Garland in the hopes of a GOP electoral victory. It may also have been an equally huge loss for the of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, who ignored increasing calls for her retirement during the Obama administration to avoid the prospect of the flipping of her seat from a liberal to a conservative member. That gamble — whatever calculation — could now cost a sweeping number of key cases hanging by a...

    "I thought back to the 1993 confirmation of my nomination to the court—the hearing was altogether civil, the vote was 96 to 3. For Justice Scalia, the vote was unanimous," Ginsburg said. "Let's hope members of Congress, the members that Allegheny College has already honored — Vice President Joe Biden and Senator John McCain, the women of the Senate, Senators Dianne Feinstein and Lindsey Graham — let's hope that they and others of goodwill will lead in restoring harmonious work ways."

    Just how much influence is President Donald Trump going to have on the U.S. Supreme Court? His administration hasn’t been quiet about its hopes to replace as many as four justices — with Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg near the top of the list. But with rumbling concerns about her health, Ginsburg doesn’t appear to be ready to step down. In fact, the same week she was a no-show at President Trump’s address to Congress, she was in the news for her impressive workout regimen. Now aged 84, and the senior member of the high court’s four-person liberal wing, Ginsburg has...

    Rank your recommended "List of 21" nominees for any future Trump SCOTUS nominations! (Obviously we are recommending "in the abstract," i.e., without knowing what the current political weather will be when a vacancy arises. If another "Access: Hollywood" recording comes out, Trump will be hard-pressed to pick a woman, etc.) My considerations, in order of importance, are: 1. Clearly constitutionalist. If we blow it on this point, the rest doesn't matter. Never forget that Brennan, Warren, Blackmun and Souter were all REPUBLICAN nominees. 2. Sufficiently non-controversial, so that we don't lose squish GOP Senators like Collins and Murkowski. (This will...

    Although I am a committed conservative, I have voted for the Supreme Court nominees of both parties—even those I might not have chosen myself—as long as I have been assured of their fitness for office. I helped shepherd through President Clinton’s nominees, Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Stephen Breyer. Both had shown themselves to be honorable, capable jurists with reputations for careful, non-ideological work on federal appeals courts.

    Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg says the US is "not experiencing the best of times" - but the "pendulum" will swing back. Speaking to BBC Newsnight in a rare interview, Justice Ginsburg reiterated the importance of the free press. "I read the Washington Post and the New York Times every day, and I think that the reporters are trying to tell the public the truth," she said. Justice Ginsburg was nominated by Bill Clinton and is regarded as a liberal. Think of what the press has done in the United States," she said citing the Watergate scandal. "That story...

    Tuesday evening, President Donald Trump nominated Neil Gorsuch for deceased Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia's long-empty seat. On Wednesday morning, liberals woke up, did the math and realized it was time to be concerned about Ruth Bader Ginsburg's fiber intake. Also bone density. Also exposure to airborne viruses (Madame Justice, what is your flu shot status?), and salmonella, and slippery ice, and also: Has anyone heard how scientists are coming along with a Zika vaccine? "I'm very interested in this." says Jeanette Bavwidinski, a community organizer in Pennsylvania. "I'm interested in what her daily regimen is. Like, what are you...

    Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg hoped for a different outcome in last week’s election, but she made plain Monday that she accepts that Donald Trump will fill the Supreme Court’s 9-month-old vacancy. The 83-year-old justice said the most immediate impact on the court of Trump’s election would be to fill the seat that Justice Antonin Scalia occupied until his death in February. “President Trump will fill it,” Ginsburg said in a question-and-answer session at a meeting of the Jewish Federations of North America in a Washington ballroom. Ginsburg had criticized Trump in interviews last summer with The Associated Press and other...

    Just days after ripping Colin Kaepernick for kneeling during the national anthem, Ruth Bader Ginsburg admitted that really didn't have any idea what Kaepernick's protest was about when she answered a question about the 49ers quarterback during an interview this week. The Supreme Court Justice released a statement on Friday saying that her comments were "inappropriate," and that she was "barely aware" of the circumstances surrounding Kaepernick's protest.
