Friday round-up


  • For the Los Angeles Times, David Savage reports that “[t]he Supreme Court meets behind closed doors [today] to weigh a question that could shape the political power of California for the decade ahead[:] At issue is the Trump administration’s plan to ask all households for the first time since 1950 whether occupants are U.S. citizens.”
  • Alex Swoyer reports for The Washington Times that “Justice Sonia Sotomayor said Thursday the high court is a prime example of how people who disagree can actually get along with one another and even have some fun together, saying she has particular respect for her colleague Justice Neil M. Gorsuch.”
  • At The New Yorker, Jeffrey Toobin writes that “there are currently two retirement dramas under way at the Court—one semi-public and the other semi-private—and they both have the potential to reshape the meaning of the Constitution for decades.”
  • At The National Law Review, Ellen Shapiro and others discuss a new cert petition “seeking clarification of the duty to update under the federal securities laws.”
