Holding: Because the foreign affiliates of American NGOs possess no First Amendment rights, the requirement for funding under the United States Leadership Against HIV/AIDS, Tuberculosis, and Malaria Act that organizations have “a policy explicitly opposing prostitution and sex trafficking,” as applied those foreign affiliates, does not violate the Constitution.
Judgment: Reversed, 5-3, in an opinion by Justice Kavanaugh on June 29, 2020. Justice Thomas filed a concurring opinion. Justice Breyer filed a dissenting opinion, in which Justices Ginsburg and Sotomayor joined. Justice Kagan took no part in the consideration or decision of this case.

#SCOTUS does not take up 2nd question in the case, on whether to overrule its 2020 decision in McGirt v. Oklahoma. Full order is here: https://www.supremecourt.gov/orders/courtorders/012122zr_3f14.pdf https://twitter.com/AHoweBlogger/status/1484606315519516675
#SCOTUS grants one new case, sets it for argument in April: Oklahoma v. Castro-Huerta, on whether a state has authority to prosecute non-Indians who commit crimes against Indians in Indian country.
More opinions coming on Monday.
#SCOTUS website indicates that the Court is expected to release more opinions on Monday morning at 10 am.
The next #SCOTUS grants? Kevin McCarthy v. Nancy Pelosi in a fight over congressional proxy voting; the First Amendment-based ministerial exception to employment law returns; nondelegation doctrine (!); and the constitutionality of the FTC's structure.
