    To be fair, challenges to the discontinuation of a program created solely by agency policy/executive order rarely go well.

    Pretty good motivator to get people out and vote...this would rapidly be reversed if a Dem takes the presidency. Better to have it happen now with < 1yr before election than a couple years ago.

    NRA vs New York today.

    On Monday the court hears argument in a case from New York, a city and a state with some of the toughest gun regulations in the country. Several gun owners and the NRA's New York affiliate challenged the rules for having a handgun at home. They contended the city gun license was so restrictive it was unconstitutional.

    Specifically, they said the state law and city regulations violated the right to bear arms because they forbid handgun owners from carrying their pistols anywhere other than seven firing ranges within the city limits. That meant that pistol owners could not carry their guns to a second home, or to shooting ranges or competitions in other states nearby. The lower courts upheld the regulations as justified to protect safety in the most densely populated city in the country.

    But when the Supreme Court agreed to hear the gun owners appeal, the state and the city changed the law to allow handgun owners to transport their locked and unloaded guns to second homes or shooting ranges outside the city.

    If the challenge is based on those specific grounds SCOTUS may decide the issue is moot but with this Court I wouldn't bet on it.

    The Supreme Court will decide who can view Trump's tax returns.

    Trump appealed. Goes to the highest court.

    I think only four Justices have to want to hear the case in order to get cert.

    Yep, that's correct.

    Looks like supreme court has already sided with Trump indirectly at least according to Alan Dershowitz, he is probably gonna join white house defense and already argued on news recently that since S.C granted certiorari on congressional subpeona it proves that Trump doesn't need to comply unless courts rule on it.

    Not sure what that does to the obstruction article of impeachment, B.G lawyers can probably weigh in on this with more clarity.

    Just cause the supreme court took the case doesnt mean it's likely to be overturned. Like was said earlier, only 4 of 9 justices need to grant cert for them to hear the case.

    The court has refused to hear an appeal that would have made homelessness a crime.

    The case stems from a lawsuit filed nearly a decade ago. A handful of people sued the city of Boise for repeatedly ticketing them for violating an ordinance against sleeping outside. While Boise officials later amended it to prohibit citations when shelters are full, the 9th Circuit eventually determined the local law was unconstitutional.

    In a decision last year, the court said it was "cruel and unusual punishment" to enforce rules that stop homeless people from camping in public places when they have no place else to go. That means states across the 9th Circuit can no longer enforce similar statutes if they don't have enough shelter beds for homeless people sleeping outside.

    In court documents, lawyers for Boise said, "Public encampments, now protected by the Constitution under the Ninth Circuit's decision, have spawned crime and violence, incubated disease, and created environmental hazards that threaten the lives and well-being both of those living on the streets and the public at large."

    Major West Coast cities and counties with soaring homeless populations had backed Boise in its petition, including Los Angeles County, where the number of people without a permanent place to live has jumped by 16% in the past year.

    The Supreme Court on Friday said it will consider whether states may punish or replace “faithless” presidential electors who refuse to support the winner of their state’s popular vote, or whether the Constitution forbids dictating how such officials cast their ballots.


    Lower courts have split on the question, and both red and blue states urged the justices to settle the matter in advance of the “white hot” glare of the 2020 election. They say they fear a handful of independent-minded members of the electoral college deciding the next president.
