|Jul 08 2022||JUDGMENT ISSUED|
SCOTUS releases new "circuit justice" lineup, with Jackson taking over the Boston-based 1st Circuit (formerly handled by Breyer). Each justice reviews emergency appeals from the regions covered by his or her circuits. (Controversial cases usually get referred to the full court.)
Today at SCOTUS: The justices meet privately for their annual "long conference" to review cert petitions that have rolled in over the summer. They'll also likely discuss the status of the Dobbs leak investigation and whether to continue live audio of oral arguments this term.
BREAKING: In 5-4 vote, the Supreme Court ALLOWS Alabama to execute Alan Miller, whose lethal injection was scheduled for tonight. In a brief shadow-docket order, SCOTUS lifts a lower court's injunction that had blocked the execution. Barrett joins the three liberals in dissent.
JUST IN: By a 5-4 vote, the Supreme Court DENIES Yeshiva University's emergency request to intervene now in a dispute over whether the university must recognize an LGBTQ student group. Roberts and Kavanaugh join with Sotomayor, Kagan, and Jackson. https://www.supremecourt.gov/opinions/21pdf/22a184_3ea4.pdf
Two justices worked for Kenneth Starr early in their careers. John Roberts was his deputy when Starr was solicitor general during the George H.W. Bush administration. Brett Kavanaugh clerked for Starr on the D.C. Circuit and was on Starr's team for the Clinton investigation.
