Briefly:

  • At NPR, Nina Totenberg looks at the role of Chief Justice John Roberts in the upcoming presidential impeachment trial, noting that although the Constitution “says that the chief justice ‘shall preside’ over the Senate trial of a president,” “under Senate rules, it is the senators themselves who have the first and last word.”
  • In the latest episode of Law360’s The Term podcast, Jimmy Hoover and Natalie Rodriguez “dive in to new filings in a case involving abortion law protections, upcoming arguments related to New Jersey’s Bridgegate scandal, and a petition to strike down the Affordable Care Act.”
  • In an op-ed for the Daily Journal, Larry Salzman laments that although the court “reinvigorated property rights in 2019” with its ruling in takings case Knick v. Township of Scott, “it stepped back from driving the point home by side-stepping two petitions for writ of certiorari in December that presented some of the most contentious and persistent property rights conflicts for review.”
