Monday round-up


  • In the latest episode of SCOTUStalk (podcast), Tom Goldstein joins Amy Howe to discuss June Medical Services v. Gee, in which a divided court temporarily blocked a Louisiana law that would require abortion providers to have admitting privileges at nearby hospitals.
  • At, Marcia Coyle reports on a new study of oral arguments showing that “Supreme Court justices direct their humorous quips and barbs most often at advocates with whom they disagree, lawyers who are losing their arguments and attorneys who do not have experience at the high court.”
  • At Jost on Justice, Kenneth Jost looks at the record in Department of Commerce v. New York, a challenge to the Trump administration’s decision to add a question about citizenship to the 2020 census, arguing that “[w]ith all these legal defects, Ross’s decision ought not stand after serious judicial review at the Supreme Court.”
  • At Jurist, William Clark and Bobby Segal urge the court to review Acklin v. Alabama, a capital case in which a defendant’s “attorney put his own interest in being paid — and the wishes of his client’s abusive father — ahead of his client’s life.”
