Immigration removal procedures and lawsuits against federal officials are the two topics before the Supreme Court on Monday. During oral argument in Niz-Chavez v. Barr, the justices will consider an important procedural question about how the government must notify non-citizens that it is initiating deportation proceedings against them (our preview of the case is here). And in Brownback v. King, the justices will consider the extent to which a statutory provision in the Federal Tort Claims Act limits the ability of individuals to sue federal officials for constitutional violations (our preview is here). Meanwhile, most Supreme Court watchers are awaiting Tuesday’s argument in one of the biggest cases of the term: California v. Texas, the constitutional challenge to the Affordable Care Act.
