Briefly:

  • Writing for Greenwire, Jeremy Jacobs reports that the “Obama administration is coming off its most successful term at the Supreme Court in several years with one notable exception: environmental and property rights cases.”
  • At his eponymous blog, Lyle Denniston reports that the en banc D.C. Circuit unanimously “rejected a new constitutional challenge to the seventy-five-year-old ban on political contributions by” federal contractors.
  • In dueling op-eds for The Washington Times, Steve Vladeck and John Yoo debate the role of the Court and separation of powers.

A friendly reminder:  We rely on our readers to send us links for the round-up.  If you have or know of a recent (published in the last two or three days) article, post, or op-ed relating to the Court that you’d like us to consider for inclusion in the round-up, please send it to roundup [at] scotusblog.com.
