Appeals court keeps Flynn case alive
"Legal saga of Michael Flynn is not over yet. The full DC Federal Court of Appeals has ruled that the Justice Department and the former Trump National Security Advisor cannot force the trial judge to dismiss the criminal case against Flynn without a hearing. The 82 decision was the result of a rare on bank hearing after a three judge panel ruled in favor of Flynn in June. The case has taken unusual twists and turns with the latest separation of powers fight between a veteran federal judge and the Trump Administration. Perhaps the most unusual Joining me is former federal prosecutor Robert Mintz, a partner McCarter in English. But what was the reason the full court gave for reversing the decision of the three judge panel? Well, the opinion by the full court of people really was a procedural decision. It really turned on the question of whether or not the Court of Appeals should be granting this rarely granted writ of mandate in a kind of riddle, man. Dana is something that is Only infrequently used. It was really not a surprise that the full Court of Appeals ruled the way it did. Because in this case, judge Children have not actually done anything that he had not even had a hearing that he'd not ruled against. The Department of Justice is motion to dismiss. And so in this case, it was difficult. We're really impossible for Flint lawyers to argue that they were some manifest. Injustice. If this writ of mandamus was not granted, and that they had no adequate alternative beings in order to satisfy their claim or gain the release they were seeking here, the relief could simply come on appeal. It goes back to jail salivating dogs. Sullivan could make a decision on what the Court of appeal says. If you don't like the decisions I made, you could be right back before the court of Appeals again and we will reconsider the case at that point. The D. C court confirmed what many legal experts have been saying that this was an unprecedented move by Flynn saying that Flynn has not sighted any case in which our court or any court issued the writ to compel a district court to decide an undecided motion in a particular way. Does that put into context how odd this motion was at this time? Yes, This whole case has been extremely unusual for a whole variety of reasons than what it really turned on this question of who has the right to determine whether the case should be dismissed. Thankfully, the executive branch clearly has the authority to commence or to continue prosecution that something that is up to the Department of Justice. That rule 48 a required believe of court before a case is a mess, And I think that's what this entire controversies about. What does leave of Courtney did give the trial judge the authority to probe the Department of Justice for the reasons that they are dismissing a case or does the trial just stuff we have to accept the dismissal at face value? And dismiss the case. Regardless of any concerns that the trial judge may have about the motivation behind the Department of Justice is decision. What were the dissents by two Republican appointees based on Essentially that it is the Department of Justice is Lone authority to decide whether to prosecute a case. But what this hearing is really about the question of whether or not the trial judge gets to probe into the reasoning behind the Department of Justice is decision to drop this case what the dissenting judges are arguing that the trial judge does not have the authority. To probe into the internal decision making by the Department of Justice that that's an executive Department decision and that what the court here is doing is usurping the authority of the executive department to decide whether or not to prosecute criminal cases. This is obviously a victory for Judge Emmet Sullivan. But how much of a victory and what I mean by that is Did the D C circuit court define what kind of hearing he can hold. Can he actually dig into the administration's motives for dismissing the case against Flynn? The Court of Appeals sent a very clear signal to the trial judge that they do not expect the hearing to turn into any kind of a circus. And in fact, the lawyer who is representing Judge Sullivan before the full Court of appeals, actually represented during the argument that there will be no discovery from the Department of Justice during any kind of sharing will be no evidentiary hearing, And in fact, she argued that the judge may well decide to dismiss this case after the party simply found grief. Is this one of the longest guilty please you've ever seen. Michael Flynn pleaded guilty in December off 2017. This case does have a rather convoluted history. It began with a guilty plea in 2017, where he had been lying to FBI agent about his conversations with Russia's faster to the United States. In the weeks leading up to President Trump's inauguration. Then he hired a new lawyer, and in 2019, he began to retreat from his prior position, trying to undo his guilty plea. Initially, a Department of Justice opposed efforts to withdraw the guilty plea and then in an about face took the position that the case should be dismissed. That's what bled us to where we are today, but this has been a protracted battle where we've seen the defendant admit twice in court. For lying to federal agents amended now attracting his plea and wants the case to be dismissed. Interestingly, the Department of Justice is logic for dismissing the case is not the General Clinton did not lie to federal agents, but is that it wasn't

You'll see me with my little wagon, my wagon with my ice chest and my signs and I'm doing my best to try to hit every neighborhood. I can between now and November you know just to. You know right now the crazy times we're living in it, it is hard. You can't really have functions like. Normally would during an election cycle. Having these big fundraisers or or meet and greets that that we would normally have. Not Safe, so we're not having and so the only way to really get out and meet people is to get on the street knock on the door and Ryan Sale. So I my experience has been very positive. People are grateful that you're coming to them and sharing your your information and and you know if they are afraid or don't want to answer. The door I've had people. They're still very nice. They usually all just wave or say, no, thank you leave your car and I just tell them and leaving it on the door and they say, okay, thank you very much. You know. So people are very, very nice and they're grateful for the opportunity to meet you and ask you questions if they want to ask you questions. It's been positive. Just A it's just a lot of walking.

A, Marshall. Oh. Yes. I did forget about city Marshal Race Yeah. Yeah. That presidential race is really going to be pulling a lot of people to the poll I. Think. So I think certainly for the November third I, we should have a really big turn out and you know that's why I think it's important to get out there and tell you who I am right So what is the Is there one or two questions that you hear over and over like what are people curious about? My goodness you know usually. If I can kind of give my little. Spiel about what I want to accomplish in in in what I've done in my experience and my qualifications. Usually. My the response I get is. Well that sounds great because I. You know. So you kind of answered any questions oftentimes I have it now casually they'll me. A question about a particular issue. and. One lady I, in particular member very unhappy with the police. She was asking me about defunding the police. and. It's very hard because people do want. They want to know who you are where you stay on as a as a candidate, I want to be able to tell you that too. But. The rules of ethics basically say we are not allowed to publicly take a stance on one side or other of a particular issue like abortion or something yes. To not that you have any control over them right? Exactly. But you really can't speak on one side of the other of any issue because you never know if that issue would come before you know or you're really supposed to be. Impartial and always appear to be impartial and and it's and it's really not even about my stance because as a judge I have to. Listen to the fax and apply the law to those facts. Not What my personal feelings are they don't I don't get to put my personal feelings in the mix. You know law our our changed a lot because that's exactly right. That's not the job of a judge in the I don't make the law I. Would only apply the law that might have and so and I and I'm I'm a firm believer in that too is i. think there are roles that we haven't and I'm a rule follower I'm going to follow those rules so. Sometimes, somebody might ask you a question that you can't really answer of given them my answer, and sometimes they like it sometimes, they don't most of the time they understand that you know because we all I think, honestly, we all want to judge it's GonNa follow the rules. If you're not gonNA follow the rules while you're campaigning, what's going to happen when you're on the bench So. So most of the time you know I I really honestly all the different people I've talked to I can think of. One person who was not happy with the answer and then you know when I told them I said, well, don't you want to judge is going to follow the rules. He said Yeah Yeah I do you guys? I say he did when he thought about that you're right. You're right on understand you know said so so what I think doesn't matter anyway, I ran for office in the past and I really enjoyed meeting people and you just it's it can be humorous it can be poignant you know and But they do people WanNa, talk, yeah they WANNA talk about. Federal Government and what do you think about this only has found it to be fascinating because you really do get to know the community much better. Yeah. People is I'm amazed at how friendly people really are. You know that was always my concern about knocking on somebody's door the companion erupting them there. Saturday they weren't al or whatever yeah and for the most part people are even even if the answer the door and I like okay thank you and. If I after I've said a couple a couple of sentences now, they'll stop and listen to what you know and and so they're very, very nice. People are great. Yeah. Well, one last question you talked about people you know you, you tell them your qualifications, your experience in what you want to accomplish. Do you want to share that like that part of your message what you want to accomplish if you are elected judge is there like an overriding? Place in your heart you know that you want to share with us about why what you can accomplish if you're elected. When I talk to people but I tell them is you know I was like to tell them my qualifications that I started Mike. With the DA's office twenty years I've been there. As a felony prosecutor, I try cases ranging from felony theft of first degree murder everything in between. Just kind of know what I do You Know Health Start I said but I do believe in in rehabilitation over incarceration when that's. Appropriate and I helped start the drug court program, and so I really want people to understand that. Yes. I strongly believe in law and order when that's appropriate in a when when when it's appropriate to really enforce law and order like with violent offenders. If a violent offender has has hurt someone they need to be held appropriately accountable. If they're convicted in my opinion I'm but I want people I believe that that it is important to have rehabilitation over and Carson nation because it helps our whole community if we can help nonviolent offenders to get back on track with their lives and become contributing members of our community rather than just living off the community. A that helps all of us you know and so that's really what I want to try to accomplish. Once I'm on the bench is to keep the momentum of some of these.

"Being a prosecutor and I love my job and I love helping people and seeking justice and feeling like what I'm doing is important for my community and so forth and So. So it really wasn't on my radar, but that's kind of. How I got to that to this position. Obviously, judges do a lot to help the community, and so you know that's I do have a certain. Called it a calling to public service because that is really where feel the most fulfilled. I. I enjoyed my private practice and and you can help people in private practice. No doubt but But I really do enjoy working in the public sector and. Particularly obviously in the criminal section because our. I it's. It's a wonderful feeling to know that you have helped a family who may be lost someone to try to seek justice. You can't ever fill that void of the loved one they lost but certainly knowing that you helped them. To seek justice for the loss of their their resolution. Yeah, somewhat. I guess they never really find closure because they still lost their loved one but. But that's a wonderful feeling. And I. Can also tell you. Might. Sound crazy to you but I've heard people convicted. A that I've seen later say thank you for convicting me because you saved my life you know but by by. It is really. So that's. Gratifying. But also humbling. To now so So such just is it's very gratifying field work in. What is the role of a District Court judge? You're saying that judge me show? Overseas track four, but they see more than just criminal cases. So at the role of Well Street Corner District Judge, is going to handle all con-. You know all of the different criminal type cases and he he just happens to have been assigned to track for for a number of years. But you know. Who you have a district judge assigned to track one who handles the drug charges and stuff but they hear misdemeanor cases. Well, the here traffic they hear juvenile they hear all kinds of civil cases, lawsuits, lawsuits, family law. So district they hear family law. The family court seats industry court primarily handle family. Court matters except that certain cases can be heard by the other district court judges as well. particularly. If there's any kind of conflict or if there's not necessarily children involved that kind of thing a see. Just divorces kind of throwing but. So yeah, you cover Khanna, the full gamut of everything. Yeah. The bring that experience to the table. And I'm curious your thoughts You really have handled a lot of different types of legal cases. What kind of temperament does a good judge need and? How do you think you show up for that role I? Do think it's I think temperament is really important I mean respect. You know it it costs you nothing to be kind and respectful to another person you know and so. To me respect is very important for judge to come in knock their docked just to demand respect from the people in the courtroom. But to actually show respect to others and to the attorneys you know attorneys come in they've worked hard on their cases. So they deserve respect the parties, who were there the witnesses the jurors have taken time out of their busy days to come in and participate in judicial process. So respect is very important you know I. I love being in court but I realized other people in A. So, much you know, and so it can be really scary if you usually coming to court because it something negative. You've either been harmed or you've harmed someone or you're accused of harming someone and it could be civil or criminal either way but. You're going through a divorce goan fighting over your kids or over property. So it can oftentimes be really daunting and scary, and so I think that having a judge who can be respectful. And just behind That's really important. It will help ease the process. So certainly, I feel I to do that. Now as a prosecutor, I always try to be respectful to. Even the defendant and in the defendants family you know and they have you know they're all raw human beings. So that's I. You know. So I think that I can bring that to the courtroom and that's what I certainly my goal right now, the in the introduction was saying you're a founding team member of the Lafayette, Parish Drug Court Program, and I've heard you say that you are proponent of specialty courts. Can you talk about that which are well I did I was one of the founding members when I worked for the public defender's office was when drug court was I In the concept stage, and so I I represent the public defenders. Office actually Rick Michaud. Was the judge who started with it and and. Janet Perriman was the. District. Attorney. the assistant district attorney and so we all we went to a lot of training we did different things judge Edwards came in shortly after that and took over. When judge me handed it over to him and he's been running our the helm of it now for twenty something years. But. It's a wonderful program that helps. A. Nonviolent offenders to. Hopefully may be fine sobriety. If, they've come into court and it's not just drug charges on most of the time, it is a drug charge, but they accept other charges such as L.. Let's say theft or say you burglarize someone shed and stole a lot of icicle or something like that. I. Mean can be other charges as well. The idea being after the after the individuals assess we realize it's because they have a drug problem that they've done become involved in this other criminal behavior. So A. You know it's been a very successful program on and I'm very proud to have been a part of it and help get it off the ground and I'm very grateful to. Judge Edwards and the other attorneys now who have stepped in and continued it all these years. I'm happy to say that it's still going strong and so I know the judge Edwards has also started steps to try to. Introduce her build a veteran's court, and so I am very interested in making sure that that happens in that that just because he is stepping down from district running for for CITICORP that we don't lose those other specialty court. So I've been advocating that I actually afford the specialty courts on. Anytime you can rehabilitate someone rather than incarcerate them. It's a benefit to that individual, but it's benefit all of us. And so You know especially with veterans we have men and women they've served for us and where they come back to civilian life. There's all kinds of reasons why they may have made a bad choice could be could be ptsd depression on could be as simple as unemployment I mean times are hard and they make some bad choices and they find themselves in criminal courts. If it's a nonviolent offense, it would be I think beneficial to all of us to help them try to get back on the right track at them some services. There are some other veteran courts around veterans, courts around the state and and I know that. Steps have been taken to already of spokane speak with the A and I think that that I think it will be able to be get gotten off the ground and I really just want to make sure that continues and so I'm a big proponent of it You know. Any time, we can help someone help themselves. As, I said I gave.

Either way, it was bound for Venezuela, and now it's believed to be bound for the U. S. And the Justice Department says the proceeds from its sale will go toward the fund for victims of state sponsored terrorism. And where those four tankers now are. They also on their way to the U. S. Well, it's unclear right now. The four tankers turned off their location. Transponder is more than three months ago, so we don't know where they are. At the moment. If the U. S has the ships they could be brought back here to the U. S and sold at auction. They could have been handed back to the Greek shipowner. We don't know. I talked to a couple of analyst today, including shipping analysts, and this action is really just seen as part of a broader effort by the Trump administration to put pressure on Iran by going after shipping companies. That are carrying Iranian fuel or oil, or even the insurance companies that they use and threatening to sanction them. If they deal with the Iranians, you know. For the past few years, the administration has been heavily sanctioning Iranian in Venezuelan, for that matter, companies and individuals and this is just a different route to apply pressure on the regime. And what is Iran's saying about this? Well. Iran's ambassador to Venezuela rejected the US justification for this seizure and confiscation as fake news, and he called it another lie and psychological warfare by US propaganda machine and said that the tanker's have nothing to do with Iran. The fact is, Iran really needs the money from its oil sales. They've been hit very hard by the Trump administration's maximum pressure campaign, which will sanction any country dealing with Iran. So any sales that it makes have to be kept quiet. And you know, even though this is a seizure of just over a 1,000,000 barrels, it's a shot by the US directly towards Tehran. And we're hearing about the seizure. Just today. After the U. S. Announced it had brokered an agreement between Israel and the United Arab Emirates. They're going to establish full diplomatic relations. That new friendship is seen as being driven by their mutual dislike for Iran. So Iran maybe feeling more isolated. Now, Jackie is Iran expected to retaliate for the seizure of its ships. Battleground, has vowed to resist US attempts to isolated and could certainly see these events as a really challenge and feel it may need to stand up for itself using whatever is available for them to respond. You know it might try to seize vessels of its own if you be called just over a year ago, Iran seized a British oil tanker and it's 23 crew members in the Strait of Hormuz in retaliation for British forces detaining on Iranian tanker in Gibraltar also last year, is believed Iran was using Mine's to attack ships in the Persian Gulf and you know, the U. S says already In the last few days, Iranian forces boarded a ship trying to take the petroleum on board but wasn't successful.
U.S. Seizes Iranian Fuel Cargo for First Time
"The U. S. Says it seized a multimillion dollar shipment of fuel from Iran's Revolutionary Guard Corps to Venezuela. NPR's Ryan Lucas reports. The government says it's the largest ever confiscation of Iranian fuel shipments. The Justice Department says it has executed a seizure order from the US District Court in Washington, D. C. Confiscate the cargo from four foreign flagged oil tankers. The vessels were carrying a combined total of more than one million barrels of petroleum, all of which is now in U. S custody. The Justice Department says the shipment was sent by Iran's Revolutionary Guard Corps, which the U. S says is a terrorist organization and that the oil was bound for Venezuela. Department says forfeited funds that are connected to a state sponsor of terrorism can be directed to US victims.

Trump signs executive actions after stimulus talks break down on Capitol Hill
"Orders that his New Jersey Golf Club yesterday, bypassing Congress after negotiations on a new Corona virus Rescue package collapsed Armory Akina breaks down the legality of those orders. Emelec's legal expert Brad Down says. Technically, the president did not sign in order to extend unemployment benefits because executive orders cannot alter legislation. There is already a fund of about $44 billion that set aside for emergency use in a different area. Yah! So what the president's executive order does is to pay $300 a month from that fund for disaster relief and in the States would be responsible to pay an additional $100 which they would eventually get refunded. But the states had a front $100 per week. While they're likely will be suits, Young says. There's an issue. Of who can challenge There's a district court opinion from the D.

TikTok To Sue Trump Administration Over Ban, As Soon As Tuesday
"The initial headlines was that trump was going to ban TIKTOK well. Then there was another headline saying trump was going to back down banning TIKTOK. Because there's a chance that Microsoft was going to purchase the talk property in the United States have their own US division and Microsoft buying that. But now trump has issued an executive order regarding Tick Tock and apparently rather than banning the APP itself, they took a different tack and are banning the service from the United States meaning that you cannot interact with Tick Tock Company. That's the supposedly how. Little bit more here from from NPR tug confused they talking about the video sharing APP being hugely popular and this the APP is actually planning on filing a lawsuit against the trump administration. As soon as Tuesday, according to a person directly involved with the forthcoming suits be filed in the District Court in. South? Cal California where Tiktok American operations are based NPR's learned. The suit will argue that trump's far-reaching action is unconstitutional because it failed to give the company a chance to respond. It also alleges the administration's national security justification for the order is baseless. Saying it's on pure speculation and conjecture. The has no findings. Of fact, just reiterates rhetoric about China that has been kicking around the White House declined to comment on the expected litigation but defended the executive order from President saying quote, the administration is committed to protecting the American people from all cyber related threats to critical infrastructure, public health and safety and our economic and national security they claim. So what they're doing is under the executive order quote any transaction unquote between a US citizen and Tick Tock. Beijing. Based parent company. Bite dance will be outlawed in forty five days for national security reasons seems like it could be interpreted very broadly. Yes. I suspect the interpretation would be that a transaction would mean you opening the APP you sending any sort of data to it you doing anything with asking support for some help. While you're installing it down, that seems like what is a transaction under the definition of this particular order right? I think it's any interaction with sometimes the transaction means a monetary thing right but you don't pay for Tiktok at least I. Don't think you right. I mean, maybe they have some sort of a paid to your. But I guarantee you the one, hundred million people or whatever that are using it aren't aren't paying for. One hundred million I, don't I honestly don't know it may be more than one hundred, million I. Don't know if that's in the United States it's probably worldwide or whatever but it's a very, very popular APP. The APP has also they say, they talk a little bit about you know the short videos are usually like fifteen seconds very, very short. The APP has also been used to antagonize the president including thousands and. Thousands of teens reserved tickets to the president's rally in Tulsa Oklahoma with no intention of going inflating the trump campaign's expectations for the event and causing embarrassment over the disappointing turns man bed. No Orangemen said. If the presidential ban goes into effect the APP may no longer be able to send software updates rendering tiktok unmanageable on smartphones and eventually nonfunctional. So they're considering a transaction I think to me in any data moving from one to another.

That's the short answer. Long answer though were you? Did you grow up in New Orleans? I grew up in New Orleans and we're in New Orleans so I grew up in uptown.

"Don't really wouldn't be regulatory chaos to wear a challenge is brought under the ACA to a regulation taking account of that final remedies that's available granting preliminary relief on an issue wide basis is appropriate he was also appropriate here because the District Court found it a very thorough very well reasoned discussion technolog your honor's concerns expressed about nationwide injunctions discuss this idea that that there are significant cross border harms here that simply couldn't be addressed in a more narrow injections thank you the it would seem though that that ultimately you could get if that's the argument nationwide injunctions with virtually any regulatory change justice Thomas I don't believe that's the case your honor I would I would think that there are many regulations that are not going to impose costs on states directly or indirectly and certainly in a nationwide injunction context I think it would still depend on the specifics of the rule being challenged and the nature of the harm that the challengers are alleging and is again indicated that the District Court really took account of all these concerns talked about the need for percolation among the circuit courts and and knowledge frankly and in plain terms that stashing preliminary relief is an imperfect science adjuster courts try their best and their refusal to be used as a special standard I think that is what you are one I do want to get in one question about when the APA was adopted do you think there were such things as nationwide injunctions or with a handle on the case by case basis your honor I believe there is a history certainly this relief going to beyond beyond the parties to the case whether they were classified a nationwide injunctions it is difficult to say I think this is dealt with very well by the very Sam against priest but I also think that in passing the APA Congress provided a very specific remedy and as your honor stated in the that the travel ban case yeah authority for nationwide action has the government of the constitution or statute well the EPA here is the authority that we would allege what we argue that the the basis for this injunction comes from it says as a final remedy courts shall set aside improper agency action and that it permits agencies are parents courts to stay it is the action as this court did a few years ago when the clean power plan case it permits a veteran junctions it permits them to postpone the effective dates and many of those remedies suggests going to be released going to the rule in its entirety right here the tax justice Ginsburg live coverage of the Supreme Court on C. span radio WCS be FM Washington this is a repair she's been radio programming from one so I I just remain world size the complete abandonment of the services interesting saving women hostesses at a four listen to women thanks I was ready to provide free coverage for I've never seen any of our prior decision suggests that those interests could be flown to the wind and the women could be left to their own resources to never themselves to get policies that would cover them for these contraceptive services as a premium to them your honor that is absolutely correct and I think it's important to remember just how broad these rules are first of their two rules were dealing with one that we haven't talked about as much as the moral rule that simply says an employer with a moral objection to providing contraception can be completely exams at the District Court noted this could in theory allow an employer that objects to women in the workforce for instance to remove itself from providing contraception and with respect to the religious exemption yeah there's certain key features that really show how broad the says first of all eliminates the accommodation is a mandatory requirement so even for for instance all the various plaintiffs in the hobby lobby case is this court recognized were perfectly fine with accommodation they are now exams and I disagree with my friends conclusion that they're unlikely to take advantage of the exemption because these are entities that object to contraception they made that clear they were simply fine with complying with the accommodations I think it's likely that many of them will in fact opt out in addition as I mentioned this applies to Morrow may what is the moral exemption come from that division so it is it is not they do not rely on a reference for the moral exemptions they claim authority under three hundred Gigi dash thirteen under the ACA's women's health a member for the moral exemption and as we've argued as as Courtois sense that statue simply doesn't support the conclusion that they can create whatever exceptions they want if they're reading were correct there would be no limits to what her so could do other than arbitrary capricious view could decide to eliminate that no cost sharing requirements it could decide that you know certain services really don't need to be covered at all even if there and you know even if they're widely recognized as preventive services it could exams whole classes of employers for reasons having nothing to do with the reasons here so our reading we sent us a far better wine and and frankly it's we have to remember we're talking about the health resources and services administration it's really unlikely that Congress would have delegated to that organization I started to create broad religious and moral objections exemptions given that they have no expertise in that area justice prior two related questions thank you one is is you know the statute says that they have to provide additional preventive care as provided for in comprehensive guidelines supported by the health resources and services administration well read that yet at least some ambiguity so my question is really given your arguments and given what may well be ambiguity at least in the statute why didn't you make the argument it's arbitrary capricious an abuse of discretion you are saying it's too broad you are saying that it'll hurt women you you you know you you point out that it'll raise health care costs and a whole lot of things and and the government has things to reply to that but why isn't that the problem legal box that's my first my related question is if you were to lead a District Court get out that issue that district judge might try to reach an accommodation by saying have you read me to have three of the bill is in Boise and Daniel McGuire thank you points out that the prior rule didn't pilot did not pirate the health plan of little sisters Hey if they think you did and you think you didn't well my goodness it trust me able to monkey with it in some way everybody reluctantly agrees that it's okay all I know northern vantage's IC of going back and making a different kind of argument put all your organs to release the box still wanting us your honor I I don't disagree with any of that I do think the rules are additionally arbitrary and capricious and we did raise that argument in our complaint we also argued I think correctly that they exceeded the statutory authority cited by the agencies did not support the rules and says we want on that basis there is no need to go any further and say well if they had the authority to be exercised correctly I disagree also with your honor suggestion that the language is ambiguous I think as we explain the use of the word supported in context reflects similar language in paragraph three immediately preceding and all that refers to is the fact that the guidelines in paragraph three which are they the bright horizons guidelines were funded by herself but actually conducted are produced by the American academy of pediatrics pediatrics of herself supports those guidelines by contracting by funding I think Congress bar that language and has provided for that as I indicated refers back to such additional prayer preventive care and screenings so we don't think there's an argument as to ambiguity as to whether there could be a resolution I certainly would hope that there is as the the board to acquire briefs explains the government the prior administration and we do not believe that these plans are being hijacked and to be clear we brought the suit against the federal government we have not challenge a little sisters we have not challenged their Colorado in junction J. and all the other parties to sue becks are protected by injunctions and do not have to comply with the contraceptive mandate no matter what happens in this case Michael sincere Pennsylvania chief deputy Attorney General under the resolution to the narrow set of spaces out there I would hope so but the fact that there was ongoing dispute doesn't justify jettisoning the accommodation for everyone else bring in publicly traded companies certainly doesn't justify the moral rules and those I think are the the most egregious examples of support how overbroad this feature regulations are thank you thank you very much justice Alito Mister Fisher you say that the affordable Care Act does not allow the government to make any exceptions to the contraceptive mandate to accommodate religious objections now that's true the original exemption for churches there are salaries and conventions of churches which was established by the prior administration violated the affordable Care Act would you come back and say that was required to comply with the first amendment church autonomy doctor and what I'd like you to explain is your understanding of the scope of that doctrine and let's take as an example a woman who works for a church in an entirely secular capacity let's say a woman who cleans church property under your understanding of this religious autonomy doctrine does that mean that that bill Clinton relationship is entirely off limits for any federal regulation for example or any state regulation for example from title sevens probation of discrimination on the basis of race age discrimination in employment act Americans with disabilities act equal pay act the fair labor standards act your honor we would not agree with that conclusion that individuals entirely secular positions are exempt from all those requirements under the church autonomy doctrines what we have argued is that what you but you do say that it would violate the first amendment to require the church to provide contraceptive coverage for that one your honor what we are arguing is that there is a basis in the first amendment for exempting churches and some way that certainly there is a core of church autonomy that that agencies in implementing federal law must protect in some way as to the provision of insurance coverage for contraceptives I took your argument to me the first amendment would prohibit the government from acquiring a church to provide that and I will certainly attitude has two ministers certainly Dr it has two ministers certainly that is correct but but I would add we are not arguing necessarily that the prior administration got everything right in the details there've been arguments on both sides that perhaps think about the details I'm talking about exacting a secular employee of the church from.

"We have the salon owner in Dallas getting a an order from a state District Court judge this afternoon a temporary restraining order against her that was initiated by the city and the state District Court judge said you are violating the city the county and the state orders and he ordered her to be closed until may twelfth saying that local residents will suffer irreparable injury because covert nineteen is easily transmitted and also one of the things we talked about yesterday is that this salon owner could lose her license and in fact the state agency that handles salon ownership with the TV L. R. has said the licensing regulation department for Texas said that they've got numerous complaints against her salon and so that means for everything I've seen that she's probably gonna end up losing her license but guess what it as you learn first on the crisscross so last night I have not seen this anywhere else that she doesn't have a cosmetology license according to what I confirmed with the news department today so why she only has salon license which means if you lose that she was re opened under different names so she isn't risking much because if she was a cosmetologist had a license for cosmetology then she would actually not be able to cut hair she doesn't care L. or do nails she just owns the salon so that's pretty interesting and so that's why some stylists are not happen with the not agreeing with what she's doing in fact the CBS eleven in one of their stories today had a say they they actually say that stylists are that some of them have talked to channel eleven and said Hey this is not cool I can only get that one year ago with this is from CBS eleven today other salon owners CBS eleven spoke to that have remained close to losing money they said it simply isn't fair for those who defy the order not to suffer consequences one lady is a Stephanie Randall she owns a salon in north Dallas normally see seven client today but for more than a month she hasn't handed income but also some other salon owners plural option eleven says they're like this is not cool with what they're doing so they're not happy about it you heard from one couple that owns a salon in the area their last night on the show and they also disagree with her it's a very interesting huh so we also have defiance and by the way I'm so it's going to progress with what she's doing and there will be very instancias unfolds I do want to say something that I think is becoming more and more clear that this virus truly appears to have lots of stories in front of me on this you know to date Bakersfield Dr site they're testing date data the urge re opening I have a New York Post column by Dr ER doctor in the Bronx who says I've been on the front lines every day for a long time now and I've seen all this hell in this horror but it's time to ease a lockdown and I'll give his reasons in a little bit here's another one microbiologist says testing shows lockdowns are actually harmful here's another one this is in the Wall Street journal today do most to lock down save many lives in most places data says now I don't disagree with that I don't refute that and I think that this is turning out to be and I hope a lot less deadly than we were told that he hears a thing we weren't lied to we are not being lied to by most officials that that we have like president trump his doctors and governor abit his doctors judge Whitley whose Republican intercounty I people can't get in this is really it's a sad and then enemy that people can get partisanship out of their minds on this when it comes to lives and that's just a sad thing that individual people can't are gonna have to reckon with but then I have been saying in exposing that you have so many people like selectively have selective outrage at Democrats but not it Republicans on this who are enforcing these things but I I believe it's a lot less deadly I believe the time start re opening is now but I also believe that we must and should obey officials in a loss and we must do it the right way I I heard today about of Pennsylvania the governor of Pennsylvania is beings the somebody of business couple business owners suing the state of Pennsylvania I'm all for that that's the way to get your redress is to sue not to have a political or could be a a stunt show and for you to be used as a useful idiot to support a woman who's openly of violating the law and asking for you to donate money to her so that you pay for her disobedience she doesn't pay for it so I mean you're it it's America you're allowed to do what you want to do but I don't the US support breaking the law and I don't support a publicity stunt that I think is has a false false motives with the salon owner but also the bar you listen this guy's in fourth I've told you that several bars have said they're going to open this Friday and defied the governor's orders and the Republican CD Republican gov mayor and Republican county judge's orders in Tarrant and the guy who's got to put a thing on that today saying we're gonna do a pub crawl or bar crawl on Friday for over a year so first of all I think a lot of people are not critical of the very few people gonna shove is my prediction because you can't buy any alcohol there and second of all it's sister shows you the buffoonery yeah I mean if you wanna blame him a protest I I'm all for that I support you hundred twenty million percent I might not agree people who cares I if you're right a lot right today for this and the up the side of the city of fourth and the county people said are the code enforcement said clearly said no we'll be there and we're gonna go after with the tea with the with the TABC those bars will not have a license if they pull this and and actually the funniest thing is about this joke the person who put the stupid thing together this pub crawl thing for Friday night ran against what's your name the Republican there Kay Granger and lost and so he's pulling this stunt and guess what happened to me today we were I'm reading guess what three I think most of the bars came out and said no we're not doing that we don't support this is us but using our name so it's very crazy like we're getting conflicting messages from officials we're having a idiots for lack of young men who are claiming they're gonna have a rally with four bars and then like the bars like no we're not you in San and we're having your people are this is you're seeing humanity humanity is broken and you're seeing humanity this is what happens when we have of a pandemic it's it's stuff happen in real the real the problems that people have in their hearts in their life start coming out right I'm with you that this is way less deadly than we thought but you know we found out today guess what a seventeen year old girl this isn't a scare tactic the gosh darn true then this could be your daughter mine a seventeen year old Lancaster girl is one of the youngest victims it's a died today and that the teacher was talking or two days ago and the cheese I'm so sorry I'm late on my homework the teachers that don't worry about the next day he died no no I. conditions

"Of the standards and that once they are adopted the standards will be subject to judicial review while the proposed standards have not yet been announced several bureau officials roles have publicly expressed opinions indicating a belief that pasteurized beer is safer than unpasteurized beer however these officials have not stated whether they intend to include a pasteurization requirement in the standards a brewery that produces unpasteurized beer is concerned that after the appropriate proceedings the bureau may adopt quality standards that will prohibit the sale of unpasteurized beer. The brewery has sued in Federal District Court to Enjoin enjoined the Bureau from adopting standards that would prohibit the sale of unpasteurized beer and sidebar. We have an umbrella thing we've got. We've got beer ear makers that listen to the show so I would love to know how this pasteurized beer stuff comes down but but anyway for purposes of the T._t.. Question the t three B question I should say how should the district court proceed with the suit a that doesn't determine whether the bureau could reasonably reasonably believed that pasteurization is the safest process by which to brew beer and if so refuse to issue the injunction against the bureau be determine whether the process used by the brewery is as safest pasteurization and if so issue the injunction against the Bureau C- refuse to adjudicate the merits of the suit at this time and stay the action until the bureau has actually issued beer quality standards or D. refused is to adjudicate the merits of the suit and dismiss it because it does not involve a justiciable case or controversy all all right. This is tough. I was when we were going through this question. I was thinking are we. Are we doing like Chevron deference here. We doing our difference some some sort of difference <hes> but I don't I don't know at that in the end will matter <hes>. I'm pretty solidly C or D <hes>. This sounds like a nonsense lawsuit to me like you've heard some people talking about their opinions but nothing has happened yet like the book so okay Federal Statute had requires that the National Bureau established the standards. It's got judicial review so what the standards have not even been announced <hes>. It's just based on bureau officials publicly expressing opinions I don't. I don't think there could be anything. Here's pretty solidly C. or D.. Which of the two you know which are essentially the two that are like there's nothing here <hes> <hes> Airbnb so aid determine whether the bureau could reasonably believe that pasteurization that I don't know that that really seems like not the right thing like they haven't even issued standards yet? I feel like courts are busy enough as it is without having to like take prospective cases and adjudicate like weather. This'll be cool. If if something happens like I feel like there's nothing here be determined whether the process used by the brewery is as safe as pastors now. I don't believe that we're we're not there yet. Okay so see hear my two answers. C. And D. refuse to adjudicate the merits of the suit at this time and stay the action until the bureau has actually issued beer quality standards so that's that's one level of. It's almost like they go in in order of how much we don't think this is a good action a sort of and then D. refuse to adjudicate the merits of the suit and dismiss it because it does not involve a justiciable case or controversy wow so like do I is that I mean the I guess the key difference would be do. I think they're even eventually could be just issue. Bull case or controversy are not the brewery has sued in Federal District Court to Enjoin the Bureau from Adopting Standards that would prohibit the sale of unpasteurized career. I don't know how how would you do that. You know like how do you. It seems like if the statute gives them the authority to do this then they just do it and you'd be like now sorry but I don't know if that means like do you get the opportunity opportunity to adjudicate.
