Fresh update on "stephen breyer" discussed on Bloomberg Law

"Knows that Steven bryer has been an exemplary justice Fair to the parties before him courteous to his colleagues careful in his reasoning He's written landmark opinions on topics ranging from reproductive rights to healthcare devoting rights to patent law to laws protecting our environment and the laws that protect our religious practices Justice Stephen breyer will step down from the Supreme Court after 28 years on the bench Known as a scholar a pragmatist a consensus builder and an optimist with a professorial heir breyer displayed those qualities in his remarks at The White House on Thursday The justice said that in his talks with students he reminds them that our system of government should still be considered an experiment It's that next generation The one after that My grandchildren and their children They'll determine whether the experiment still works And of course I am an optimist and I'm pretty sure it will Does it surprise you that that's the thought that comes into my mind today My guest to discuss justice prior's legacy is constitutional law scholar Stephen vladeck a professor at the University of Texas law school Justice breyer has been adamant in the past that justices are not political Once they take their oath they quote are loyal to the rule of law not the political party that helps secure their appointment But his retirement now before the end of the term giving the democratic president plenty of time to get another justice confirmed before possible change in power in the Senate Is it breyer's acknowledgment that politics and the court are intertwined The question is whether you can somehow walk a tight rope between acknowledging that I think everyone has to that the confirmation process is political That political actors in the form of the president and the Senate are making political decision about who to nominate about timing while still believing that once the process is oak once the classic is confirmed and takes the oath and joins the bench that what they're doing is somehow divorced from politics And I think justice breyer may be the last of his kind in trying to argue forcefully that yes that's a line that can be preserved that we can have a political if not partisan confirmation process and still be judges doing judicial power as opposed to political power Once we Don our robes I think the question is how many books still believe that There are a lot of textualists on the court now breyer was more of a pragmatist Tell us about his approach to the constitution I'm sure part of this was a reflection of his experience versus a long time Senate staffer as an administrative law guru as a professor and then June as you know as a lower court judge he really thought that when it comes to the structure of government the best way to think about how the branch is relate to each other is a more functionalist approach where the branches are not hermetically sealed from each other where there's power sharing where the checks and balances are both formal and informal And the informal part is what often gets missed in contemporary discourse but breyer knew of what he spoke He was part of it when he was working for the judiciary committee when he was involved in the administrative conference of the United States And so I think his approach to judge him was the notion that it is not forbidden and is not as thin to look at the constitution to look at statutes to look at circumstances where judges are allowed to exercise a modicum of independent judgment and ask what actually makes the most sense What would be the most administrable What would be the most efficient And that kind of functionalist pragmatism used to be a lot more common on the court and I think it's again another respect in which breyers retirement may well be the end of an era Justice breyer was on the bench nearly three decades yet he wasn't as well known to the general public as other justices I don't think folks think about justice breyer the same way that maybe they think about life justice Sotomayor or justice Ginsburg because he wasn't as visible in cases affecting civil rights for example But for all his warts for all this pause not the fact that we justice breyer who wrote what until recently it was probably the most important contemporary abortion decision in favor of women's rights to choose in the whole of the healthcare in 2016 It was just as brier who was often right over ability decisions in affirmative action cases It was just prior who was supportive at least a large chunk of the court starts prudence that is now in descent And so I think what complicates this legacy June is not him I think we knew who he was in 1994 when president Clinton on the him It's how much the court moved around him It's how different a court he left than the court that he joined and how he looked through that lens as opposed to the lens that we thought would be assessing him through 28 years ago Would you describe him as more of a moderate than a liberal Our so subjective I certainly think that for the duration of his tenure on the court he was probably the most centrist of the justices typically identified as that of the democratic appointees and even when justice Stevens and Cedar were still in the court The breyer was probably the one closest to the center And Judy we have empirical evidence of that There were high profile cases where it was brier who provided the key to vote in favor of what we might think of as a more conservative position The harm in 2004 it was briar who provided the 5th vote for the proposition that even American citizens could be detained at enemy compatible It was this is briar in the series of cases in the early 2010 who actually traded places with justice Kennedy in some fairly significant questions about the right to sue the government to enforce federal claims against date officers And so I don't think there's any question that he was certainly the most moderate of the justices we typically use the L word for the question is whether that made him a moderate in the abstract and I think folks are just going to disagree about that Coming up I'll continue this conversation with professor Stephen vladeck.

Mike Gallagher: Justice Breyer Didn't Have the Guts of Ruth Bader Ginsburg

"And honestly, the bridge collapse near the site of his infrastructure speech is just about on point with his promise to appoint a nominate rather a black woman on the Supreme Court. I mean, let me tell you something. This has gone from bad to worse for them. And even what ought to be a victory for them is no victory. When a president gets to nominate a Supreme Court Justice, that's a victory, right ostensibly, he can't change the direction, ideologically of the court. It's a liberal for a liberal. There's no victory here. Stephen breyer got hounded out by the left because the progressives and the machine mounted an unprecedented campaign to force him out, listen, everybody, given all their plaudits to him and all that too bad you didn't have the guts of RBG. Justice breyer, too bad you didn't have the tenacity to stay the course. I don't want to deny somebody the right to retire. He's out because he knows after we sweep the midterms and Republicans take control of the Senate. McConnell has already said, we will not confirm in the Senate, a Biden selection for Supreme Court until after the 2024 presidential election. Breyer had to go. The left broke him.

Mike Gallagher: Race Is What Matters to Joe Biden in His Supreme Court Nominee

"We've got a president who absolutely is is willing to confirm that race is what matters to his next Supreme Court to his first Supreme Court nominee. And listen, I'm going to be very blunt here, and I'm going to be fair because I try every day to be as fair as I can be. Somebody pointed out last night that Ronald Reagan was committed to having the first female justice on the Supreme Court. And that kind of puts it in perspective, a historic perspective. He nominated and Sandra Day O'Connor was confirmed. And there's no difference there. That isn't looking for somebody with the best qualifications that is saying a woman should be represented on the Supreme Court and Joe Biden is confirming that a black woman will be nominated to his Supreme Court. Here's Biden confirming his intention to fill this vacancy with Stephen breyers announcement of his retirement with a black woman. I will select the nominee worthy of justice prior's legacy of excellence and decency. All I've been studying candidates backgrounds and writings, I've made no decision except one. A person I will nominate will be some of the extraordinary qualifications, character, experience, and integrity. And that person will be the first black woman ever nominated to the United States Supreme Court.

"When the bombshell announcement was made yesterday, the justice Stephen breyer is retiring from the Supreme Court. I immediately went in my mind to November 8th. What does this do to the midterms? Because whether we like it or not, the next Supreme Court Justice is not going to be a constitution supporting conservative. It's just not. We could dream, it ain't gonna happen. And I kept thinking, how are Republicans going to react to this? How are Republicans tasked with interviewing and interrogating and grilling this pick behave? Very, very important message on the MyPillow text line to start this hour that I agree with. Concede the battle to win the war. If Republicans go nuclear and attack the nominee, they will be exploited because the Democrats will accuse Republicans of being sexist, racist, whatever other hot button, buzzword they can throw

"Gunfire, then a tense silence. By daybreak on Monday, bullet riddled and blood spattered presidential vehicles were visible in the streets. On state television, a young army captain flanked by gun toting heavies declared that the rule of president rock kaburi was over. Responsibility Duval is to a community national. In his place a military government that says it's committed to defending Burkina Faso from the scourge of West African jihadists. The Burkina Faso's president roc kabore is pretty worrying, but frankly, it's not unexpected. Henley 7 is our Africa correspondent and it's based in Senegal. This is the fourth coup and West Africa in just the last 17 months had been two in neighboring Mali, for example, and it's Burkina Faso's 8th successful coup since gaining independence. Even more immediately, just two weeks ago, the government arrested 8 soldiers for allegedly plotting some form of coup and there's been some tension bubbling for a while between mister as government and the armed forces. And you've had mentioned that attempted coup when we spoke last about Molly, what is it that's led to that instability in Burkina Faso? Well, it's most squarely about just the terrible security situation. Burkina Faso is a country of 21 million people, but about one and a half million of them have been pushed from their homes by an onslaught of jihadist attacks in just the last three years. So a very steep acceleration of displacement about another 7000 people have died in the fighting in the last three years. And then there have been some really devastating attacks that have spurred also protests in the capital. One was a slaughter last June of more than a hundred people in a village called sohan in the north of the country and then perhaps even more directly precipitating this coup was a November attack in inat or another northern town where jihadists killed about 50 John derms. And those John arms had, it seems not received food for two weeks, at least according to a report that they sent to their superiors. So that attack in the sense that the security forces were not really being properly supported by their civilian heads, caused a lot of anger and military circles. And though there's been boasts of improved military spending from the government, it does seem like little of that gear got to some of those frontline areas. And so now that this coup has happened how have the people of Burkina Faso reacted to it? So it's difficult, obviously to speak for the whole country, but in the capital I could do there was a clear sense of celebration. There was a fist of atmospheric strict the next day with hundreds perhaps thousands of people coming out. This perhaps reflects a longer term sense of apathy with the democratic government that had been in place in 2018 a poll showed that support for military rule had climbed to about 50% up from only 24% a few years earlier. And part of this is what the army's trying to tap into. They say they want to do more to protect the nation from this and security. And they claim that having the military run the shop is the only way to achieve this. The argument goes, if you like that, having the military enchant will mean that money and kit needed to fight jihadists will actually get to the front lines and be less likely to be stolen. And what's your take on that argument that having the military in charge will help with the jihadist problem? Well, I think it's doubtful. The same argument that what was needed is military running the whole government was made in recent coups in Mali on multiple occasions, but there's just not much evidence that having soldiers run the government has improved security. In fact, some analysts in Mali suggest that since the coups in 2020 and 2021, the army is actually withdrawn even more than it had before from some embattled parts of the country. I think it's also clear to say that in the short run, this is pretty likely to help jihadists. You know, this new military outfit in Burkina Faso will have its hands full trying to consolidate power in the capital, but even in the long run, who's often lead to more instability more contestation of power and even more coups. So I'm skeptical that it will do much good in the medium term either. So the environment then is actually in the short term, as you say, more favorable for jihadists. What will happen if they do gain some ground while this is going on? Well, the real blow to the wider western campaign against jihadists that is happening in Mali, Burkina Faso and Niger in France is deployed about 5100 soldiers as Sahel, although its operations at Burkina Faso have been a bit more limited. But there's also a wide number of regional troops. There are some commanders from America. They're a European commander is also operating in the region. And in Mali, the UN has 15,000 peacekeepers. And this strategy more recently has shifted slowly from a very heavy military focus towards trying to get the local states themselves to return to troubled areas to provide services and ultimately to build a functioning and accountable democracies. President Macron of France has talked about the need for the return of the state on many occasions. And this coup just really flies in the face of all of that. And it's potentially open to the window for a longer term worry, which is of jihadists finding it easier to expand through Burkina Faso and take a hold and coastal countries such as Benin or Côte d’Ivoire where we have already seen the number of attacks beginning to increase. But of course, France and its allies aren't the only foreign actors in the region. Yes, when we spoke about Molly, one of the complicating factors there was the arrival of Russian mercenaries. Yes, that's right. Russian influence has certainly been growing in the region alongside anti French sentiment. Now that's been most obvious in Mali and in fact spilled over very recently into a disagreement with Danish forces who are working alongside the French and the Malian government that has actually asked them to leave the country. But we also see this growth of interest in Russia now in Burkina Faso Russian flags was seen in the hands of Cruz supporters this week in the crowd celebrating the coup various people on the ground talked about how they were inspired by Marley's defiance of France. And what about more broadly and going forward, we do keep speaking about coups in this part of the world. Should we expect more? Well, the Sahel more generally is very unstable. And of course, the history tells us that coups tend to repeat over time and particularly in West Africa. So it's hard to be confident that this is the last of the cycle of coups. And I think as long as jihadists remain on the march and the security situation remains dire, it's very difficult to rule out. What's clearer, I think, is that fighting that jihadist threat will require more than just force. There's clearly a need for some change. It's difficult to know in truth exactly what, but clearly better governance by these states and more cooperation between countries in the region is needed. So is a more consistent approach from their armed forces and better relations, frankly, between political elites and local armies as well as their foreign backers. All of those need to work better together. But unfortunately, that.

"He was granted clemency 30 years later. And who else who are the other contenders? There is another strong contender, leandra Kruger. She's younger, which is an asset. At 45, she'd be the youngest Supreme Court Justice among those currently serving. She has Ivy League degrees too from Harvard and Yale. She clerked on the Supreme Court. She worked in the solicitor general's office under Obama and argued 12 cases at the Supreme Court. She was dynamite in these hearings, incredibly poised and polished, even when she was fighting, losing battles, and all of the 9 justices had their knives out for her. She's currently a judge on the state Supreme Court of California. They're a handful of other 40 something federal judges who might be chosen for breyer's seat, but judges Jackson and Kruger are far and away the favorites. And what about the confirmation end of things? How likely did any of these women would be confirmed if nominated? Well, it seems the Democrats are present. Do you have the votes? All they need is a majority. And when judge Jackson was confirmed to the appeals court last year, three Republicans joined Democrats to vote for her. And this is one of those rare times when Democrats can thank none other than Mitch McConnell for the present rules. He blew up the Senate filibuster for Supreme Court confirmations in 2017 in order to get Neil Gorsuch on the bench. The McConnell rule holds, and the Democrats bear Senate majority may be just enough if the party can hold together as well in this instance, as it has for Biden's many lower court nominations. And what about the ideological makeup of the court? What do you think all of this means for the court going forward? However, quickly, mister Biden gets a successor confirmed, and whoever she turns out to be, the court's direction will not change in the short or medium term. There will still be twice as many conservatives as liberals, abortion rights appear to be endangered, gun rights around the upswing, affirmative actions days are probably numbered. At least in the near term, the next justice will probably find herself dissenting early and often. And what about four soon to be former justice breyer? What do you think his legacy will be where will he end up in the history books? Justice breyer has been a stalwart, but pragmatic, liberal justice, who believed the judges should look beyond a laws text to its purposes into its consequences. His pragmatic approach was really about rolling up our sleeves and figuring out together as common citizens, how to work out our differences. This attitude inspired his majority opinions upholding abortion rights, delineating the limits of presidential power and addressing the delicate matter of religion in the public square. Everyone likes to make fun of priors, lengthy and almost stream of consciousness, hypothetical questions in oral arguments. But he was also a delightful questioner. He was funny. He was at once professorial and down to earth. One thing that preoccupies justice breyer is the stability of democracy and the rule of law. The idea that people will trust the system and abide by its rules, even when they disagree with them, because they feel represented in and by their institutions. It's helpful to a country to have a system where people follow laws where people in fact follow laws interpreted by judges and may do that even when the judges are wrong. So I think that's the goal. Prior wants that as his legacy, but by retiring at this time he seems to be telling us that public faith in the judiciary might be threatened if the court is not protected from drifting.

"Who make public radio great every day and also those who listen It's morning edition from NPR news I'm Stevens keep And I'm Rachel Martin Supreme Court Justice Stephen breyer is expected to announce his retirement today at 83 he has written many of the courts less glamorous but legally important decisions Here's NPR legal affairs correspondent Nina tomburg If Stephen breyer hadn't been a justice Hollywood might have made him up Deeply intellectual fluent in not just law but philosophy art and culture he was also absent minded geeky self deprecatingly funny physically fit but so preoccupied that he three times suffered serious injuries when knocked off his bicycle Among breyer's most publicly well-known decisions was the one he wrote in 2016 striking down a Texas law that closed nearly half the clinics in the state without any demonstrable safety justification The decision had no majestic language but its effect was profound in reaffirming at the time The rights of women to terminate pregnancies The closures mean fewer doctors longer waiting times increased crowding and significantly greater travel distances all of which when taken together burden a woman's right to choose For the most part though breyers monuments were not so much the decisions that he authored as the decisions that he influenced Behind the scenes he pushed and prodded his fellow justices for consensus On everything from ObamaCare to affirmative action In 2013 when the courts conservatives seem poised to invalidate all affirmative action programs in higher education the justices instead punted on the issue by a 7 to one vote Justice Anthony Kennedy wrote the decision but breyers hidden hand was said to be behind the compromise ruling And three years later Kennedy would for the first time embrace affirmative action in higher education Sunny and disposition naturally optimistic briar believed in persuasion and viewed a descent as a failed opinion But he did dissent and sometimes passionately as he did in 2007 when a 5 justice majority struck down voluntary school disaggregation plans in Louisville Kentucky where the schools had once been segregated by law and in Seattle where they'd been segregated in practice As breyer noted the court had long allowed local school districts considerable leeway to prevent resegregation But now it was striking down the same sorts of plans because of the votes of 5 justices two of them new to the court It is not In the law it's so few have so quickly changed so much It was hardly the only time that breyer would see the court's handiwork even his own work quickly undone by a dramatically more conservative new court majority Breyer for instance was one of the justices who wrote the court's majority opinion upholding a 2002 federal law aimed at limiting the influence of big money and campaigns Only to see the law gutted by a different and more conservative majority 7 years later Briefly despondent he ultimately returned to his optimistic ways always hoping to persuade and sometimes succeeding But this year faced with a 6 to three conservative supermajority apparently determined to reverse some longtime legal precedents that he cared deeply about including abortion breyer decided it was time to go Stephen Gerald breyer was born in San Francisco where his father was a lawyer for the city's public schools An academic star at Stanford Harvard Law School and Oxford breyer would go on to spend decades as a professor at Harvard Law School but with several stints in Washington in the Justice Department then as an assistant prosecutor in the investigation of the Watergate scandal and as chief counsel for the Senate Judiciary Committee then chaired by senator Edward Kennedy It was Kennedy's example the top prior important lessons on how to forge consensus He tell us don't worry so much about credit Credit is something where if you succeed there will be plenty of credit to go around And if you fail who wants the credit While on the committee brier helped enact legislation that deregulated the airline industry and legislation to make federal criminal sentencing more uniform He was so successful that when president Carter nominated him to the federal appeals court based in Boston just days after Ronald Reagan was elected in 1980 Republicans let the appointment go through An act of cooperation that is simply unimaginable today Breyer served as an appeals court judge for 14 years eventually becoming chief judge and in 1994 president Clinton named him to the Supreme Court Once there he proved a moderate liberal who worked well with moderate conservatives like Sandra Day O'Connor when she retired and conservatives of a new brand began to populate the court Breyer sought to make the public case against the conservative doctrine of originalism often debating conservative justice Antonin Scalia now deceased While Scalia argued that the constitution must be interpreted as the founding fathers would have at the time it was written briar countered that the founders understood perfectly well that nothing is static citing for example the constitution's ban on cruel and unusual punishment Flogging as a punishment might have been fine in the 18th century That doesn't mean that it would be okay and not cruel and unusual today What's more he observed in an NPR interview even historians don't agree on what the founders meant at the time they wrote the constitution History is very often in these matters a blank slate or a confused slate and if you want to govern the country by means of that history then you better select 9 historians and not 9 judges to be on the court and I'll tell you those 9 historians will very often disagree with each other The job of a Supreme Court Justice breyer said is to apply the constitution's values to modern circumstances.

What Is the Legal Rationale for Biden's COVID-19 Vaccine Mandate

"Gap best vaccine mandate has taken effect. You listeners have to get vaccinated or else you have to listen to me. Spin out stephen. Breyer fantasia every day. That's gonna be. The new mandate from the vest after shunning mandates. For months president biden has announced a broad mandate. So he's requiring federal employees and contractors to get vaccinated. He's also requiring healthcare workers at federally funded institutions get vaccinated and he has had osha. The occupational safety and health administration come up with a rule that will require companies that have more than one hundred workers to demand vaccination or weekly testing in order to protect the workplace health and safety of other employees. there he also doubled fines on people who violate math mandates on things like airplanes so emily. It's pretty clear that this mandate on federal workers and those on federally funded health clinics legal straight up. No problem i mean people may not like it seems like biden can do it. What is the legal rationale for the mandate on large employers. The legal rationale for the mandate is that the federal government through osha through. It's occupational health and safety powers sets tons of rules for workplaces. There are plenty of other vaccine. Mandates out there in the united states in schools and at work and lots of other conditions that the government sets for employers and employees to follow and so the biden administration wants to see this as kind of routine use of its powers in that domain and there is some precedent for this but this is also in its scope and its sweep and introducing a new vaccine pretty unprecedented and so i expect legal challenges to binds vaccine conditions. Once this rule is finalized.

A group of liberal groups hired a truck to drive around the supreme court with a direct message to the justice. Briar retire a week later representative mondaire jones of new york became the first member of congress to sign on to that message. These days representative alexandria ocasio. Cortez of new york has lent her progressive credibility to that push and twitter seems to already be planning briars retirement party. The pressure has only grown more intense senate minority leader mitch. Mcconnell last week vowed to block any potential buyers supreme court nominee in the lead up to the twenty twenty four election and if republicans control the senate calendar twenty twenty two midterms with democrats and republicans each currently at fifty seats apiece and vice president. Kamala harris breaking the tie in democrats favor even the slightest shift in the balance of power could tilt the senate and the court further to the right. Progressives still smarting from mcconnell's refusal to even have a hearing for president barack obama's 2016 nominee to the court. Don't wanna give mcconnell another opportunity to in their mind steal a seat from the party in the white house. Mcconnell has studiously maintained that history says election year supreme court nominees are considered only when the same party controls the senate and the white house otherwise the nomination can be tanked. He has been intentionally vague. On what a biden nominee would face a in twenty twenty three brier or no doubt gets that he has been fairly vocal about how confirmation hearings have become too partisan and how journalists identify the president's. Who nominated the jurists. Says though that dictates their allegiances he bemoans a widespread willingness to describe the justices judicial philosophy through a political lens. He clearly understands the politics surrounding judicial nominations after an career. That featured stance as watergate prosecutor and senator ted. Kennedy's council on the judiciary committee. But as a not just how much things have changed since then brier one confirmation to the supreme court by an eighty seven to nine vote the most recent justice to win confirmation amy coney barrett did so by a fifty to forty eight vote. Which is why the dual pressures from the democratic laughed and mcconnell's not so subtle threat from the right may keep brier in the job. Brier hates that. The court has become political. The so called strategic retirement isn't an idea that seems to appeal to him. Justice ruth bader ginsburg stayed in her robes. While battling several health scares on obama's watch seemingly determined to retire. When hillary rodham clinton could make the nomination instead ginsberg died on the bench and president donald trump replaced the liberal icon last fall with barrett a conservative jurist in her forties who now stands to shape american law for decades. A fun fact. Bill clinton was deciding between brier ginsburg in nineteen ninety-three for his first supreme court nomination brier lost out to ginsburg in his first at bat. With hillary clinton a major factor in that choice brier himself described. How considering politics actually dams the court in the public's mind behaving like quote political officials are. Let's call them. Junior politicians rather than jurists only erodes confidence..

Supreme Court throws out Louisiana abortion restrictions

"Been talking to Stephen Black professor at the University of Texas Law School about the decision today We're a divided Supreme Court struck down a Louisiana law that opponents said would have left the state with only one abortion clinic. Chief Justice John Roberts provided the crucial vote during the court's liberal justices in a 5 to 4 majority. So Justice Stephen Breyer, who also wrote the majority opinion in the Texas Case, wrote the majority opinion here did he reiterated his reasoning in the Texas case, or did he just follow precedent? No American. I think a lot of the plurality of him by the prior was very much not just reiterating what he wrote for the majority four years ago in the home of health case, but also do not carefully trying to explain why that decision for your so should control the case. Why the Louisiana line is not in any material way. Actually, or legally different fromthe law that the court threw out in Texas four years ago. If I can, you know for Brier, the queue is to show why these cases are not the similar And you know, I don't get you. Justice. Roberts actually agreed with that. I think you just agreed with the endorsement of the analysis from the earlier decision on hold and help if that's why he felt obliged and compelled to write separately. What was the thread running through the dissenting opinions? What's interesting about this case is, you know if you read the sentinel opinions that actually very little tune about roar, Casey and a whole lot about standing, you know, I think for the defenders, the ground they were hoping in this case would be resolved on Was that the abortion providers June Medical Services, etcetera weren't proper parties. The challenge Louisiana long the first place that would have allowed the court sidestep a major ruling on the stuff into scope of the right to pursue a pre viability abortion. But of course, there were consequences all his own indignant much harder for a court to hear these kinds of pieces going forward, so No, I think for the dissenters for justice Promise Justice Alito. The quarters from Kavanaugh know there at least stated opposition here with principally to the court allow in this case to reach America at all. I suspect June that that no one will be surprised if no. Were those marriage to be properly before them. They just hostile to them that know the descent maybe focus on stand them, but I think it's not hard to imagine that there are objections on the merits behind them as well. So during his confirmation hearings, Justice Cavanaugh was questioned again and again on Roe v. Wade, and he said he would follow precedent. Did he veer from that in this decision? I don't think so. I mean, just, Kavanaugh wrote only a very short to page dissent, although he joined a large chunk of just much longer defense. You know, I think Kavanaugh is a little bit cagey and careful on exactly that point. Doesn't say a lot about roar. Casey. He really put it on the procedural question of whether these planets had standin on why he thinks that matter should have been read ended the trial court traditional back finding on that question. But, you know, I think folks are not gonna have trouble reason. If you imagine this is You know, suitable and without necessarily saying that he's probably a reliable vote for the conservatives in a case where the merits of an abortion restriction really aren't properly before the court. You know, I don't think it's directly inconsistent with anything, he said during the confirmation process, But Matt it certainly doesn't come running like wall. We've heard a lot about Justice Roberts Justice Gorsuch Has Cavanaugh been a reliable conservative vote during his first term here, I think, for the most part, I mean, I think there's one or two paces June where You know he's been on the other side. We're siding with the progressive on Ly one that comes to mind when you was the deciding vote on. It wasn't an especially major contention case that without an antitrust case You know, I think he's probably been in some respects more reliable in a smaller data set as a conservative vote than justice. Gorsuch has been, obviously, of course, it's you know, it's fresh off of the Majority opinion he wrote in the LGBT discrimination case, You know, so I think I think it's pretty clear that injustice. Cavanaugh, the conservative, got what they were hoping for. Um Whether that hold across the larger data set, we'll see. But you know, I also think it's also a sign of the times. June. You know, we had a 30 year period We had a Supreme Court with No. Two very obvious swing. That justice is Justice Sandra Day O'Connor, Justice Anthony Kennedy, where you could see these pretty profound shift in majorities from one case to the next. That's not where we are. Now we have a solid conservative majority and results, like the abortion case, don't change that. I think they just show that there are at least some elements that even the solid conservative majority won't transgress. This was the third time in two weeks that Chief Justice John Roberts disappointed conservatives in a blockbuster opinion. Is he now the next Justice Kennedy Oh, I think it's been clear June since Justice Cabin always confirmed to the Supreme Court that in most, not all but most of the high profile, divisive partisan No social and contentious cases before the Supreme Court. The departure of death of Kennedy puts to Justice Robert from the middle, and I think, you know we're seeing that this term in spades. It's not just his decisive vote today in the Louisiana abortion paid not just his majority opinion in the doc a case you know that he also joined Justice Gorsuch. In the LGBT discrimination case, So you know they're going to be out liars where it's not the chief Cruz the swing vote, But I think you know in the high profile cases more often than not, yes, where there's a 5 to 4 majority, and it's No for the conservatives who sent him the the one who will have been personally to switch sides with the chief justice John, I don't think that's because anything about the chief has changed. I think that because No. The court itself has changed. And because the kind of dispute the court is taken are increasingly grounds new towards ones where any of those five justices were going. Be disinclined Tio. Ride with the quote unquote conservative position. It's going to be John Roberts. Using this opinion and looking forward at some of the other opinions that are coming out, especially the decision on the subpoenas for Trump's financial records. Does this tell us anything about how justice Roberts may vote on that? I really don't think so. You know, I don't think that this is any kind of broader shift or pattern in how the chief justice instead of his job, you know, I think he's he's able to take that from cases differently. I mean, you know, right after we got the abortion opinion this morning, we got the chief justice's majority opinion. And that's the Buchanans, which was a very classically conservative separation of powers. Hold them from him. So I don't think we should read anything broader into his vote in these cases, other than the reality that he is now the Longboat And, you know, do not could show up again as early as you know the cases where they were coming down on Tuesday or the rest of this week or next week. You know, I don't think this is the last time this term that the chief going to be the swing vote, But I also don't think that you know the fact that he's this one wrote in some cases allows us to predict in which cases It most likely

'Supreme Inequality' Argues That America's Top Court Has Become Right-Wing

"Us my guest is Adam Cohen he's a lawyer and a journalist and author of the new book supreme inequality the supreme court's fifty year battle for a more unjust America it's about how the Supreme Court has grown more conservative often ruling against the poor against workers rights against voting rights while favoring corporations and the wealthy overall contributing to income inequality you read that in the five decades since the Nixon presidency there've only been three Supreme Court chief justices and they've all been conservative burger Rehnquist and Roberts yes and they've had a conservative majority behind them the whole time and that's really stunning right because if you think about going back to nineteen seventy we've had so many changes in the White House right we've had conservatives we've had you know we've had Reagan we've had George W. bush and we've had Clinton we've had Obama Congress has switched parties multiple times right back and forth back and forth we have just had a right wing court for sixty years so do you think that's kind of coincidence that justices tend to to leave or die during Republican presidencies or it do you think that Republicans are better at getting Supreme Court justices appointed well the game the whole system much better than Democrats do in many ways so one way is that they do tend to step down in strategic ways that Democrats often don't so Anthony Kennedy stepped down at a time when he knew that trump would be able to replace him and get his nominee confirmed by Republican held Senate with Peter Ginsburg and Stephen Breyer did not step down towards the end of the Obama administration's that's one part of it but another part of it really is that they just do the skulduggery a little bit better to write so when Obama nominated Merrick garland it's garland had been confirmed that would have restored a liberal majority to the court for the first time in half a century and look what the Republican Senate did they just said we're not interested what I can do anything so you're actually say in the book that these are kind of two book ends on the the half century that Nixon steals for this is C. and Mitch McConnell refuses to allow a Democrat to fill Scalia's seat and the both propped up the current conservative majority there's something about the process of nominating and confirming Supreme Court justices that seems to have changed now you mention the McConnell blocking the Merrick garland nomination but you know trump named his potential justices during the campaign that that's kind of unheard of isn't it's gotten much more political and just the way in which trump is saying you know I we were putting together this list and we're consulting with the federal society and and I think it's pretty much acknowledged that you know trump in many ways was not very traditional right wing presidential candidate by background by temperament to many other things one thing he clearly did to solidify his support from the right wing from fundamentalist Christians and all that was to make it clear to them we're going to choose the kind of justices you walked and they've been very emphatic about doing that it used to be the was not supposed to be a litmus test for Supreme Court justice but now both Democrats and Republicans seem to be boldly mentioning their support of a litmus test I mean some democratic candidates have said that yeah they would choose you know Supreme Court justice who supports abortion rights at that would be essential so I think that's something that's changed too with that you know intentionally stating to the public yes this this judge is coming in with you know certain points of view in advance I think that's right the mask is falling off right everyone can see what's really going on you know in theory if the court is the sort of legal body we like to pretend it is what present should be saying is I'm gonna look for the best interpreter of the law I will look for someone who maybe got very good grades or road very good lord you articles or who is a fabulous teacher or who has shown just a general you know excellence in the craft but that's not what they talk about it all is as you say they talk about the politics because everyone's pretty much admitting now that the court is a political institution you read that the area in which the Supreme Court has changed the most is in the area of economic class give us an example of that sure during the war in court which we were talking about the court really embraced poor people and their problems so we began to see them being very active around issues like the poll tax but also really about welfare right I mean welfare used to be something that was kind of disparaged and embarrassment people didn't talk about it we looked out the people who are on welfare well the Warren court comes along and says no welfare is an important thing in our society that allows people to subsist and the and actually right after the Warren court ended with the momentum of the Warren court in nineteen seventy the Supreme Court did an amazing thing in a case called October versus Kelly they actually ruled that under the due process clause localities cannot remove people from the welfare rolls without giving them a formal hearing first chance to be heard so that's that's something that is you know it would have been unheard of a decade earlier so that was the kind of new approach the court took to the poor but then when the burger court rises and when the Nixon justice is really begin to take control the quick very quickly turned his back on the poor and and it's actually just a couple weeks later that the court issues a ruling that really sounded the death knell for the poverty law movement case called energy Williams where the court not only said that they were going to uphold really discriminatory unfair local welfare rule but he basically said you know we're washing our hands of welfare law cases where it's you know it's the this is something we're pretty much going to leave to the government to do as they want and after that Dandridge case although not in on the court began to rule against the poor and to make clear that they didn't care about things like whether welfare was fair by the controversy over whether the equal protection clause of the Fourteenth Amendment should include poor people as a group with special protected status yeah this is one of the most fascinating things that was going on during the war in Europe so there is this notion of a suspect class is there certain classes that the court says I have a higher standing under the equal protection clause so it it's mainly you know racial minorities religious minorities non citizens groups like that and the idea is that if you're a discreet and insular minority that is unable to really effectively protect itself through the political process which is often true of the groups I just mentioned the court will give you extra care so the court had been for years identifying different groups it considered to be in this class and if you get in this class the court is that much more likely to strike down any laws that puts a burden on your disadvantages you and for years the court was edging close to putting poor people in this category they would say things like you know what lines with the government draws against poor people are very similar to lines of the drive against racial groups and you know everything but actually calling the suspect class and we don't know what the Warren court would have done if it had been allowed to continue but one of the first things the burger court did in that dentures case as I mentioned was really make clear no the poor not could be a suspect class and they're not getting any special attention from us so if the court had ruled differently and said poor people were a protected class how might that have changed things the poor would then be given a very powerful legal tool to use in a lot of different context to challenge a lot of ways in which their heartbeat so right now we have very unequal distribution of of welfare around the country there are some states that if you live in California New York not that welfare is munificent because it is not but with the other states where you get almost nothing you know if you're if you're in Wyoming and you need help so things like that could have been amenable to being challenged by under equal protection for people to say look we're not being treated equally by the federal government how it distributes well for so there are a lot of categories like that we're we're populars would've been able to step up and say this is a way in which a law is really hurting the poor and remember there are a suspect class my guess is Adam Cohen author of the new books of freedom and
