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.
Thanks @marinklevy for joining us on the latest episode of SCOTUStalk!
On today's SCOTUStalk episode @marinklevy joins to talk new-justice history, including the time Earl Warren rushed across the country to take his seat and showed up with the wrong type of robes.
