Monday round-up


  • In The Wall Street Journal, Brent Kendall reports that a “reflective Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg offered something of a lament Saturday night for the polarized state of national politics, speaking to a theater audience following a play about her late friend and ideological sparring partner, Justice Antonin Scalia.”
  • At the National Conference of State Legislatures blog, Lisa Soronen discusses “the notorious ‘cake case,’” Masterpiece Cakeshop v. Colorado Civil Rights Commission, noting that “[i]n the past three years, lower courts have decided a number of similar cases involving other wedding vendors who did not want to provide services for same-sex weddings (e.g., photographer, florist, venue owner, stationery seller),” and that “[n]one of the vendors has won thus far.”
  • At Empirical SCOTUS, Adam Feldman examines data that may indicate how the justices will vote on the merits in the upcoming entry-ban case.
  • At Reuters, Andrew Chung reports that at least nine “companies and individuals are looking to register racially charged words and symbols for their products, including the N-word and a swastika, based on a U.S. Supreme Court decision on trademarks last month.”
