Republicans can't sue to protect their gerrymandered map, per SCOTUS.
Ruling in a case out of Alabama, SCOTUS rules 7-2 that defendants can be tried in state and federal courts for the same crime. Bad news for Paul Manafort, facing charges in New York that he was convicted of in federal court.
Yes a state court can try a defendant for the same crime as the federal government. This is a loss for Paul Manafort.
SCOTUS refuses to hear a case challenging registration of gun silencers.
The Supreme Court refuses to hear a case of people buying gun silencers without registering them.
He says the Supreme Court will likely rule without ever hearing the new evidence.
Remember his "principled" stand against letting President Obama fill Scalia's Supreme Court seat?
SCOTUS says Indiana's abortion law, which prevented a couple from terminating a pregnancy due to an unhealthy fetus, remains blocked. PS: The Notorious RBG was awesome as usual.
Indiana passed a law interfering with a couple's private medical decision. A lower court said no, and Tuesday the Supreme Court upheld that block. They also allowed Indiana to legislate the disposal of waste from an abortion procedure.
At least six Democratic candidates for president were at the Supreme Court today in defense of reproductive rights.
