The brief order may end years of litigation over the committee's efforts to review the tax records of Trump and his businesses.
JUST IN: Whisky, dog toys... and trademark law.
SCOTUS has agreed to hear a dispute between Jack Daniel's and a company that makes squeaking "Bad Spaniels" dog toys. The case will have implications for the tension between parody & intellectual property. https://www.supremecourt.gov/orders/courtorders/112122zr_e1p3.pdf
In a quiet Monday morning order list, SCOTUS adds no new cases to its docket. The court will not hear Brooks v. Abbott, a challenge to an alleged racial gerrymander of a state senate district in Texas. Here's the full order list: https://www.supremecourt.gov/orders/courtorders/112122zor_7lhn.pdf
JUST IN: The Biden administration, as expected, asks the Supreme Court to revive Biden's student-loan relief plan.

JUST IN: The Supreme Court DENIES Arizona GOP chair Kelli Ward's bid to block the Jan. 6 committee from reviewing her phone records. Clarence Thomas and Samuel Alito dissent from the court's brief, unexplained order denying Ward's request.
NEW: Another fight on the shadow docket over a subpoena seeking information about election interference.

Here's Ward's filing: https://www.scotusblog.com/wp-content/uploads/2022/10/22A350.pdf
