Briefly:

  • Sadie Gurman and Jess Bravin report for The Wall Street Journal that “Attorney General William Barr said Monday he expects to find a legal way to add a citizenship question to the 2020 census, less than a week after the Justice Department said it would drop the attempt in the wake of a Supreme Court decision blocking it.”
  • At the Yale Journal on Regulation’s Notice & Comment blog, Bernard Bell offers the second of a two-part post on the implications of Food Marketing Institute v. Argus Leader Media, in which the court held that when commercial or financial information is treated as private by its owner and given to the government with an assurance of privacy, that information is “confidential” under Exemption 4 to the Freedom of Information Act.
  • At The Oklahoman, Chris Casteel reports on the court’s decision to restore Carpenter v. Murphy, which asks whether Oklahoma had power to try Patrick Murphy for a murder that took place on land that was part of the Creek Nation, to its calendar for reargument, noting that the court “likely deadlocked and may try a different approach in its next term.”
  • At The Chicago Daily Law Bulletin (subscription required), Daniel Cotter has the first of a two-part look back at the recent Supreme Court term.
  • Kevin Daley writes at The Daily Caller that, according to a new book about the nomination of Justice Brett Kavanaugh, “[l]awyers associated with the Trump campaign consulted retired Justice Anthony Kennedy while compiling a list of prospective Supreme Court nominees during the 2016 presidential campaign.”
