Wednesday round-up


  • A.O. Scott reviews “On the Basis of Sex,” a new movie about the early career of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, writing in The New York Times that “[t]his is, almost literally, the story of how Ginsburg found her voice.”
  • At Law and Liberty, Mark Pulliam argues that after last term’s decision in union-fees case Janus v. AFSCME, “[t]he rationale for upholding compulsory dues to unified bar associations has been discredited,” and that “the Court’s recent action in Fleck v. Wetch, overturning an Eighth Circuit ruling that had upheld mandatory bar dues in North Dakota, and remanding the case ‘for further consideration in light of Janus’ appears to be very consequential—handwriting on the proverbial wall.”

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