Scalia on the Lemon Test as Late-Night Ghoul (now eliminated by SCOTUS)
06/27/2022 7:40:57 AM PDT · by cotton1706 · 13 replies ^ | 11/30/13 | R. SCOTT CLARK
Like some ghoul in a late-night horror movie that repeatedly sits up in its grave and shuffles abroad, after being repeatedly killed and buried, Lemon stalks our Establishment Clause jurisprudence once again, frightening the little children and school attorneys of Center Moriches Union Free School District. Its most recent burial, only last Term, was, to be sure, not fully six feet under: Our decision in Lee v. Weisman conspicuously avoided using the supposed test but also declined the invitation to repudiate it. Over the years, however, no fewer than five of the currently sitting Justices have, in their own opinions,...

Scalia also hinted at possible tangles between a Biden administration and the Catholic Church over birth control coverage mandates imposed under Obamacare but repealed by the Trump administration. The Rev. Paul Scalia, son of the late Supreme Court justice Antonin Scalia and a Catholic priest at St. James Catholic Church in Falls Church, Va., said Sunday he was wary of Sen. Kamala Harris, technology giants and other forces that he sees as encroaching on freedom of religion. Scalia also hinted at possible tangles between a Biden administration and the Catholic Church over birth control coverage mandates imposed under the Obama...

Philadelphia Foster Care Case Challenges Justice Scalia’s Most Controversial Opinion

The Federalist ^ | November 13, 2020 | Elizabeth Slattery and Anastasia Boden
Fulton is part of a broader effort to hold the government to a higher standard whenever it limits our freedom—from our ability to speak, work, exercise religion, or simply live as we choose. On Nov. 4, the Supreme Court heard oral argument in Fulton v. City of Philadelphia, a challenge to the city’s exclusion of Catholic Social Services from participation in the foster care system due to its views on same-sex behavior. This may sound like a run-of-the-mill battle in the culture war, but there’s a lot more to it.Fulton is part of a broader effort to hold the government...

Barrett to praise Scalia in opening hearing statement, say court should not make policy

Judge will praise her mentor, the late Justice Antonin Scalia, and emphasize her belief that it is not the job of the Supreme Court to create policy in the text of her opening statement obtained by Fox News. "Courts have a vital responsibility to enforce the rule of law, which is critical to a free society," Barrett's opening statement reads. "But courts are not designed to solve every problem or right every wrong in our public life. The policy decisions and value judgments of government must be made by the political branches elected by and accountable to the People." Barrett...

Dem Sen. Coons: Amy Coney Barrett ‘Even More Conservative Than Justice Scalia’ — ‘Qualified as a Judge’

Breitbart ^ | October 07 2020 | JEFF POOR
Wednesday on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” despite taking issue with the timing of the confirmation process for Seventh Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals Judge Amy Coney Barrett, Sen. Chris Coons (D-DE) acknowledged the pick was “qualified as a judge” for the nomination. “We should not be racing ahead with this partisan process,” Coon declared. “There is no precedent in our nation’s history for the Senate holding a confirmation hearing for a Supreme Court nominee this close, just 27 days, before a presidential election where people are already voting in more than half the states.”

Amy Coney Barrett, Trump's Supreme Court pick, is Antonin Scalia's heir

Associated Press via KHOU ^ | 09/26/2020 | Michael Tarm
Although Amy Coney Barrett is the president's choice to replace Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, she is more aptly described as heir to another departed Supreme Court justice: conservative hero Antonin Scalia. Like Scalia, for whom she once clerked, she is a committed Roman Catholic as well as a firm devotee of his favored interpretation of the Constitution known as originalism. Those qualifications delight many on the right but dismay liberals and others who fear her votes could result in the chipping away of some laws, especially the Roe v. Wade decision legalizing abortion. President Donald Trump announced his choice of...

It’s a new year, but nothing much has changed since 2019 as far as how dumb and ignorant some college kids can be. Yeah, you can chalk it up as kids just being young and dumb, but when a graduate student and some other college kids from several of America’s most prestigious law schools and colleges decide to express their deep disdain for the late Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia, well, some of us take notice. Daniel Espo, who according to his Facebook profile is studying or had studied at Harvard Law School, expressed his distaste for the late Justice...

New Scalia Rising? Supreme Court Justice Neil Gorsuch warns judicial activists he's coming for them

American Thinker ^ | 01/28/2020 | Monica Showalter
Is the era of Big Judicial Activism over? It might just be. Supreme Court Justic Neil Gorsuch, in a ruling about denying green cards to migrants who come here to be "public charges," something that's plainly laid out in U.S. law as illegal, threw in a special warning to activist judges, all leftists, who have been beavering away to rule from the bench, warning them that he's tired of their shenanigans. It's a specter to behold - a big lion on the Supreme Court who not only cares about rule of law, but is now warning the leftists out there...

Twelve years after the Supreme Court ruled that the right to keep and bear arms is an individual right "unconnected with service in a militia," the Second Amendment is in worse shape than ever. New York; California; Massachusetts; Connecticut; and Washington, D.C., with a combined population of 70 million, have outlawed the sale of most semi-automatic rifles and all gun magazines capable of holding more than ten rounds to the public. Colorado, New Jersey, Vermont, Maryland, and Hawaii also have restrictions on magazine capacity. Seventeen states have so-called "red flag" laws, allowing the summary confiscation of a person's firearms on...

The Hill ^ | 08/27/19 | Morgan Chalfant
President Trump on Tuesday officially nominated longtime labor lawyer Eugene Scalia to be secretary of Labor. Trump said back in July that he planned to tap Scalia, who is the son of late Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia, for the post days after Alexander Acosta resigned as Labor secretary. Scalia served as the top legal officer at the Department of Labor during the George W. Bush administration and previously was a special assistant to Attorney General William Barr during his first stint as the top law enforcement officer under the George H.W. Bush administration. Scalia, currently a partner at law...

CNN’s Cuomo: 2nd Amendment Didn’t Mean ‘Individual Right’ to Bear Arms ‘Until Scalia Read It In’

CNN’s Chris Cuomo used a tweet Thursday to suggest the Second Amendment only protected a collective right until Supreme Justice Antonin Scalia read an “individual right” into it. Cuomo tweeted: Do you remember what the 2a was created for? That there was no individual right contemplated until Scalia read it in? If you are an originalist about the constitution you have no basis for thinking you and not the state controls access. — Christopher C. Cuomo (@ChrisCuomo) August 8, 2019 Notice the last sentence of Cuomo’s tweet, “If you are an originalist about the constitution you have no basis...

President Donald Trump has selected lawyer Eugene Scalia, the son of the late Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia, to be his new labor secretary. Trump tweeted news of the planned nomination on Thursday evening, less than a week after his previous secretary, Alexander Acosta, resigned amid renewed criticism of his handling of a 2008 secret plea deal with wealthy financier Jeffrey Epstein. The financier was indicted this month on charges of sexually abusing underage girls and pleaded not guilty. "Gene has led a life of great success in the legal and labor field and is highly respected not only as...

President Trump on Thursday night announced he's nominating attorney Gene Scalia, the son of the late Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia, to replace Alex Acosta as secretary of labor. The surprise move -- which top Republicans privately pushed for -- was a visible manifestation of the close personal bond Trump has forged with the Scalia family in recent years. The confirmation process for Justice Neil Gorsuch, who ultimately filled Scalia's seat, sparked the connection. Scalia, 55, is currently a partner in the Washington office of the international law firm Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher. He is expected to face headwinds from...

Christopher Scalia: Lessons from the Kavanaugh chaos -- What my father, Justice Antonin Scalia, would have thought I’ve frequently been asked in the past few weeks what my father, the late Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia, would think about the contentious battle just waged over Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination to the nation’s highest court. Would he have been surprised by the heated debate, political maneuvers, protests, last-minute delays and uncorroborated allegations of sexual misconduct that we saw during now-Justice Kavanaugh’s confirmation process? Although I don’t think my father (or anyone) could have predicted the twists and turns of the past...

A son of the late Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia rejected claims that Brett Kavanaugh lacks the appropriate temperament to serve on the Supreme Court after a contentious hearing with senators Thursday. "It's really not all that rare for justices to get angry," public relations professional Christopher Scalia said during a Fox News interview. "You read some of the dissents, they're mad. They are often called scathing and fiery." Scalia, one of nine children of the late conservative justice, said the context of Kavanaugh's hearing is different than what he would face on the court. "It's true that Justice Kavanaugh...

Leadership of the Democrat caucus is so morally bankrupt. Their lust for power and domination in Washington seems to be considered a birthright by the left The American people are currently witnessing the worst angels of the Democrat Party (and some establishment Republicans) as Brett Kavanaugh gets dragged through the sewer. This man is acknowledged by both sides of the aisle as one of the great legal minds in America. He is perhaps, as some have said, a man set apart in his generation.
