Wednesday round-up

Kentucky county clerk Kim Davis, who had spent several days in jail after she continued to refuse to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples even after the Supreme Court declined to stay a federal judge’s ruling ordering her to do so, was released yesterday.  Lyle Denniston reported on the latest developments for this blog, with (brief) commentary coming from Marty Lederman at Balkinization.


  • Howard Fischer of Capitol Media Services (via reports that Arizona’s secretary of state “has joined Republican interests in asking the U.S. Supreme Court to void the state’s current legislative-redistricting plan.”
  • At the Pacific Legal Foundation’s Liberty Blog, Wen Fa responds to Linda Greenhouse’s column for The New York Times on standing and conservative judges (which we covered in last week’s round-up), describing her suggestion that “Article III standing analysis changes depending on whose ox gets gored” as “wrong.”

 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]
