|12-694||9th Cir.||Not Argued||Jun 3, 2013||N/A||Per Curiam||OT 2012|
Holding: In his trial for rape, Jackson sought to present evidence to show that the victim had previously reported that he had assaulted her. The state supreme court held that the evidence was properly excluded, but in his federal habeas proceedings the Ninth Circuit ordered the state to either retry or release Jackson, on the ground that the exclusion of the evidence violated Jackson’s constitutional right to present a defense, and that the state supreme court’s contrary decision was an unreasonable application of Supreme Court precedent. The Supreme Court reversed, holding that the state supreme court’s application of the Supreme Court’s clearly established precedents was in fact reasonable when no prior decision by the Supreme Court clearly established that the exclusion of the evidence violated Jackson’s constitutional right.
Judgment: Granted, reversed and remanded in a per curiam opinion on June 3, 2013.

Incidentally, Gorsuch had been scheduled to give a speech at the University of Wyoming today, but his visit was canceled due to COVID.
Nothing from Kagan or Gorsuch though 😢 https://twitter.com/scotusblog/status/1438530948207874050
💥 Breyer continues book tour (including @colbertlateshow two nights ago).

Can modern art shed new light on landmark Supreme Court rulings? A recent book says yes. Artist Xavier Cortada created 10 paintings depicting SCOTUS cases, and scholars used the paintings to re-examine each case's legacy. Here's @amanda_frost1's review:

NEW: The Senate Judiciary Committee will hold a hearing tomorrow on Biden's nomination of Elizabeth Prelogar to be solicitor general, the federal government's top lawyer at the Supreme Court.
In separate remarks on Sunday, two justices argued that SCOTUS is not a political body.
Justice Barrett did so in a speech in Kentucky, after being introduced by Mitch McConnell:

SCOTUS provides instructions to the parties in the case of John Ramirez, the death-row inmate who has requested that his pastor be permitted to lay hands on him and pray out loud in the death chamber.
#SCOTUS issued a Friday-night order outlining specific questions for inmate John Ramirez & Texas to address in their briefing in his case, which is scheduled for argument in November. The Court put Ramirez's execution on hold earlier this week: https://www.supremecourt.gov/orders/courtorders/091021zr_ap6c.pdf
