Briefly:

  • In the Atlantic, Ryan Doerfler and Samuel Moyn weigh in on the debate over potential structural reforms to the Supreme Court, arguing that Democrats should abandon proposals to add justices or impose term limits and, instead, should strip power from the institution itself by “removing certain cases from its jurisdiction, requiring a greater number of justices to agree in order to interfere with democratic choices, or letting Congress override any glaring mistakes.”
  • At the National Review’s Bench Memos blog, John Bursch looks at the nascent effects of the Supreme Court’s recent decision in Espinoza v. Montana Department of Revenue, highlighting a ruling last week from the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 2nd Circuit that cited Espinoza in ruling against a Vermont educational program that excludes students attending religious high schools.
