Briefly:

  • For The Washington Post (subscription required), Robert Barnes looks at recent polls that measured the public’s view of the Supreme Court, noting that one poll revealed a surprising “amount of support for increasing the number of justices.”
  • At Bloomberg Law, Jordan Rubin reports that Argentina is “fighting for [the] life” of one of its citizens, “who faces execution in Texas”: Victor Saldaño’s “latest appeal is pending before the U.S. Supreme Court, and he hopes the weight of a country behind him helps win the justices over.”
  • At Time, Tessa Berenson has a sneak peek at an upcoming documentary on Justice Clarence Thomas, in which “Thomas describes his faith, his political awakening, his judicial philosophy, and the role race has played in his life, offering viewers rare insight into the mind of a justice known for his reticence on the public stage.”
  • In the latest episode of Law360’s The Term podcast, hosts Jimmy Hoover and Natalie Rodriguez “discuss the justices taking up a case over the constitutionality of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau’s leadership structure” and “weigh in on some denials from the court, and why refusing to take a case is sometimes better than a fractured ruling.”
