The Supreme Court denied an effort to strip acting Attorney General Matthew Whitakers name from a pending case, swatting down a push to force the justices to send a signal that President Trumps 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 after convictions for fraud and financial crimes.
The case is titled Barry Michaels v. Whitaker and lawyers saw that as a way to try to force the justices to confront whether Mr. Whitaker was properly installed as the acting attorney general.

Libs are really stupid. That’s all that can be said.
The Whitaker appt seems to have been well researched before it happened. Makes the Dems look stupid...like laws don’t count.
“Libs are really stupid. Thats all that can be said.”
Stupid and incredibly hateful. I never imagined the level of hate that’s being spewed against President Trump, his supporters, Republicans in general, and conservatives.
Each Rat “patriot” is encouraged and inspired to do all they can against America, even if incurring tactical losses.
The dems/left have a feudal kink- the want to be ruling royalty.
Libs always trying to chew their leg off.
The LIBERAL LEFT continues to chase their own A$$!
Evil hates good people and will kill and destroy if given half a vhance.
Wow. They will try anything won’t they?
The Dems hatred of President Trump speaks loudly in these ridiculous lawsuits and shows their stupidity.
Apparently, Trump is not allowed to make ANY decisions regarding his authority as president. Isn’t that what the leftist trolls are saying?
Support Free Republic, Folks!
Civics 101 - Separation of powers.
Our leftist enemies have hit on a new tactic. They keep bringing crap to the courts forcing the Supreme Court to, in effect, become Trump’s lawyer. More to the point, they want to jamb up the USSC calendar and thus keep the Court busy and able to rule against the left.
A pack of mules, braying because they haven’t been fed, have more legal credibility than the moron plaintiffs.
I agree, and the leftists still have many lower court leftist judges in their pockets to slow the entire process down.
Yup, the hatred directed toward Pres. Trump is reached near Nixonian levels!
