Briefly:

  • At The Advocate of Baton Rouge (via How Appealing), Joe Gyan Jr, reports that in Mckesson v. Doe, “[a] civil rights group is urging the nation’s highest court to overturn a lower-court ruling that said a Black Lives Matter organizer has no First Amendment defense to a lawsuit filed by a Baton Rouge officer who was injured while trying to arrest protesters after the 2016 killing of Alton Sterling.”
  • Mark Sherman reports for AP that when Chief Justice John Roberts “makes the short trip from the Supreme Court to the Senate to preside over President Donald Trump’s impeachment trial,” “he will have the chance to demonstrate by example what he has preached relentlessly in recent years: Judges are not politicians.”
