Friday round-up


  • At The Economist’s Democracy in America blog, Steven Mazie casts doubt on suggestions by Justices Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh during oral argument in Rucho v. Common Cause, a partisan gerrymandering challenge to North Carolina’s congressional districts, that “the democratic process may spare the Supreme Court from stepping in.”
  • At SCOTUS OA, Tonja Jacobi and Matthew Sag offer an initial big-picture analysis of all the oral arguments in the current term.
  • At Law360 (subscription required), Jimmy Hoover looks at why the court is taking so long to resolve Gundy v. United States, “an appeal from a convicted sex offender that conservatives are hoping will help rein in the executive branch,” the only undecided case from the October argument session.
