|21A145||2nd Cir.||N/A||N/A||N/A||N/A||OT 2021|
Issues: (1) Whether an administrative rule is generally applicable when it bans specific religiously motivated conduct inside a covered facility while expressly permitting otherwise identical secular conduct in the same facility at the same time; (2) whether an administrative rule mandating vaccination for health care workers is religiously neutral for purposes of the free exercise clause when it targets religion by removing a religious exemption while retaining a medical exemption, when the governor declared that the removal was intentional and that religious objectors to vaccination are “not doing what God wants,” and when the state enforces that view by punitively denying unemployment benefits to terminated religious objectors; and (3) whether a state administrative rule can forbid private employers from offering any religious accommodations under Title VII other than exclusion from the employer’s premises.

The Supreme Court sides with Sen. Ted Cruz in his First Amendment challenge to a federal campaign-finance law that limits how and when candidates can recoup loans that they make to their own campaigns. The vote is 6-3 along ideological lines.
In an immigration case, SCOTUS rules 5-4 that federal courts do NOT have jurisdiction to review certain executive-branch factual findings that determine whether non-citizens are eligible for "adjustment of status." Those findings can dictate whether a person is deported.
SCOTUS agrees to take up two new cases: Jones v. Hendrix (a habeas corpus case) and SEC v. Cochran (a case about the power of district courts to hear challenges to the constitutionality of the SEC's administrative law proceedings).
