Wednesday round-up


  • Jessica Gresko of the Associated Press reports that both same- and opposite-sex couples are using excerpts from Justice Anthony Kennedy’s opinion in Obergefell v. Hodges, holding that states must allow same-sex couples to marry, in their wedding ceremonies.
  • At Cato at Liberty, Ilya Shapiro and Josh Blackman weigh in on the challenge by the Little Sisters of the Poor to the Affordable Care Act’s birth-control mandate, in which Cato recently filed an amicus brief; they urge the Court to consider an additional question – whether the responsible departments of the federal government “have the interpretive authority and ‘expertise’ to resolve this ‘major question’ of profound social, ‘economic and political significance.’”

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]
