Big cases, retirement rumors at Supreme Court

The Supreme Court on Monday ordered new arguments in two cases involving immigrants or foreigners, giving new Justice Neil Gorsuch a change to participate in the decisions.

Gorsuch, Trump's first nominee, was only confirmed to the court in April.

The justices will begin to hear cases again October 2.

Also expected in the next few days, though there's no deadline by which the court must decide, is a ruling on whether to allow the administration to immediately enforce a 90-day ban on visitors from six mostly Muslim countries. The media would be screaming bias and asking him to recuse himself of all cases coming before him that had a hint of President Obama behind them.

To liberals he is a hero for Obergefell v. Hodges - a landmark opinion that cleared the way for same-sex marriage in 2015 and will likely be his most lasting legacy.

Gorsuch dissented. This time he wrote for the trio of himself, Thomas and Alito: "The statute in question establishes a set of rules created to ensure that the biological parents of a child are listed on the child's birth certificate". Regardless of their political leanings, each justice has a duty to judge the merits of the cases before them, putting aside their personal opinion of the author.

In the years since, every state supreme court, save Rhode Island's, has implemented a judicial term limit or mandatory retirement age provision. On Monday the court finally pulled the trigger after months of inexplicable inaction.

The San Francisco-based 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals said the travel policy does not comply with federal immigration law, including a prohibition on nationality-based discrimination.

Unlike its larger sibling, however, the design of the smaller Pixel 2 device would be largely identical to last year's versions. The smartphone will come with Qualcomm's Snapdragon 835 processor and have up to 128GB of storage and 4GB of RAM.

Mr Smith said the litigation path the US Department of Justice was now trying to extend "in parallel to legislative progress" sought to require the Supreme Court to decide "how a law written three decades ago applies to today's global internet". The ruling potentially could narrow the separation of church and state.

"That came through in spades today not just in the Arkansas case, but in his separate concurrence in a case striking down a Missouri program that refused to provide otherwise available funds for preschool playgrounds to schools affiliated with religious institutions", Vladeck said.

Those who pushed for his nomination were thrilled.

In January this year, a USA federal appeals court refused to reconsider its earlier landmark decision forbidding the U.S. government from forcing Microsoft and other firms to turn over customer emails stored on servers outside the United States.

"They ask for equal dignity in the eyes of the law and the Constitution grants them that right", Kennedy wrote.

Leo also noted something else about the court's newest member.

He added that hearings held in House and Senate committees earlier this month showed lawmakers have "strong support" for updating the 31-year-old privacy law at issue in this case.
