    Full title: "Sherry Knowles Scrutinizes an Activist Supreme Court and its Unconstitutional Approach to Patent Eligibility" “The Supreme Court has brazenly admitted it is not following Congress’ statutory instructions on patent eligibility in several cases. And it has carried out virtually none of the required statutory construction. It is judicial activism in the extreme.”Sherry Knowles is one of the best known patent attorneys you will find. She is a former Vice President and Chief Patent Counsel for GlaxoSmithKline, where she led the charge on behalf of the industry to fight back the claims and continuations rules package the United States...

    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.

    Robert J. Luck, a highly respected rule-of-law conservative on the 3rd District Court of Appeal is Gov. Ron DeSantis' second pick for the Florida Supreme Court. During a recent interview, Luck described his judicial philosophy: “I understand how the judiciary -- what Hamilton called our least dangerous branch -- fits into our system of government ... Having worked in each of the three branches, I understand the modest role of the judge in reviewing the laws enacted by the Legislature, the actions taken by the executive, and the findings of the lower courts ... I conducted myself that way for...

    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...

    Officials with the U.S. Supreme Court have tried to downplay the fact that Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg missed three days’ worth of oral arguments this week as related to her recent cancer surgery. “Her recovery from surgery is on track. Post-surgery evaluation indicates no evidence of remaining disease, and no further treatment is required,” said court spokesperson Kathy Arberg. While that statement can be taken a couple of different ways, The Hill is reporting that the Clinton-nominated justice will also be out next week, which will no doubt set off panic among Left-wing groups and congressional Democrats...

    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...

    Judge Barbara Lagoa, a rock-solid, rule-of-law conservative from Miami and the first Cuban-American woman to serve on the Third District Court of Appeal, is Gov. Ron DeSantis' first of three Supreme Court selections. DeSantis, standing with Lagoa and Lt. Gov. Jeanette Nuńez at the Freedom Tower on Biscayne Boulevard in Miami, made the announcement at 10 a.m. It was one of his first orders of business in office and one of his highest priorities. She is the first Hispanic woman in history to serve on the Florida Supreme Court. Her appointment is effective immediately. "Justice Lagoa’s proven commitment to upholding...

    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...

    WASHINGTON (JTA) — Bryant Johnson says pressure creates diamonds, and I think I just upped the carat level. Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s personal trainer did not know that his two other clients on the Supreme Court — Stephen Breyer and Elena Kagan — are Jewish, too. Until I told him. “I never thought about it that way,” he says when I tell him that he’s responsible in part for the health of the court’s entire Jewish contingent. Ginsburg is 85, Breyer is 80 and Kagan is a spritely 58. Where Johnson takes the conversation from there is interesting — he says...

    There’s no hack cliché like the New Year’s prediction column cliché, so with that in mind, here’s my Top 10 Predictions for 2019 column, and my general prediction is that 2019 will be even crazier than 2018!10.     Out of Afghanistan Too: Yeah, our 17-year war will largely end as we bring most of the boys back home. As always, Trump will make his opponents go nuts. What will be a big part of the fun is watching the liberal media that slobbered over Obama’s tragic, premature Iraq pullout posing as hawks over this long-overdue strategic rethink. What you...

    President Donald Trump on Wednesday said that should the U.S. Supreme Court rule that the Obama-era Deferred Action on Childhood Arrivals (DACA) is legal and can’t be dismantled by executive order, then he will have inherited a “scary” amount of power. “If the Supreme Court rules that President Obama was wrong, which they should because… by the way, if he was right, then I’ve been given tremendous power,” Trump told reporters at the White House. “Can you imagine me having that power? Wouldn’t that be scary?”

    On November 7, Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg fell, fracturing two ribs. X-rays to treat the broken ribs revealed two nodules on her lungs. On Friday, Ginsburg, who is 85, underwent surgery to remove the nodules, both of which proved cancerous upon post-operative testing. The surgery was successful, and doctors say there’s no evidence of further cancer on Ginsburg’s scans. “She hopes to be back on the court for the start of the next argument session in early January,” reported NPR. Ginsburg, who previously survived colorectal and pancreatic cancer, is tough as they come. Liberals thrilled to reports that...
