Friday round-up

Coverage of the Court’s release of a revised version of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s dissent in the Texas voter ID case (on which Lyle reported for this blog on Wednesday) continues.  At The Wall Street Journal’s Washington Wire, Jess Bravin observes that, with the correction, Ginsburg “may have made history a second time.”  And Tony Mauro’s story on the release for The Blog of Legal Times includes an interview with Frank Wagner, the retired reporter of decisions, about the role that the reporter might have played in such an opinion.


  • At Just Security, William Dodge looks at Samantar v. Yousuf, the human rights case in which the Court recently asked the Solicitor General to file a brief expressing the views of the United States.
  • At The Huffington Post, Elizabeth Wydra examines recent comments by Chief Justice John Roberts regarding politics and the Court.
  • At the Constitutional Accountability Center’s Text and History Blog, Brianne Gorod continues the CAC’s series on the Chief Justice with a focus on his views on federal power.
  • At ACSblog, Jason Steed begins the first part of a three-part series on term limits at the Court, starting with the 1968 presidential elections.
