Argument analysis: A marathon debate, and no clear winners, in debate over Trump tax returns

The battle over efforts to obtain President Donald Trump’s tax returns reached the Supreme Court in two oral arguments today. Over a year ago, committees in the Democratic-controlled House of Representatives and a Manhattan district attorney issued subpoenas for the president’s financial records to the president’s longtime accountant and lenders, but the president has tried to block those institutions from complying with the subpoenas. After nearly three-and-a-half hours of oral arguments today,...

Argument analysis: After marathon argument, little consensus on future of birth-control mandate exemptions

The Supreme Court heard oral argument this morning in the latest chapter of the battle over the Affordable Care Act’s “birth-control mandate,” which generally requires employers to provide their female employees with health insurance that includes access to certain forms of contraceptives. In 2017, the Trump administration issued new rules that expanded an exemption from the mandate and allowed private employers with religious or moral objections to opt out of providing coverage without any noti...

The sweetest Palm Springs family Vow Renewal at The Sands

Christina and Francisco’s story is too good, so let’s dive in: Sands Hotel & Spa, just outside of Palm Springs is the prettiest pink wedding venue that we love seeing all decked out for an intimate vow renewal. (Theirs had 20 guests, so it totally proves just how beautiful and detailed a micro wedding or elopement can be!) Having originally tied the knot in a small, spontaneous Malibu beach wedding (we know, cute), the idea of a vow renewal was always on the table… But life gets busy, you know?...

Court grants government’s request to enforce “remain in Mexico” policy

Today the Supreme Court granted the Trump administration’s application for permission to enforce the Migrant Protection Protocols, colloquially known as the “remain in Mexico” policy, while it appeals to the Supreme Court. Announced in December 2018, the policy allows the Department of Homeland Security to return immigrants seeking asylum to Mexico while they wait for deportation proceedings. Justice Sonia Sotomayor was the only justice to note publicly that she would have denied the government’...

Former U.N. Chief and Peruvian Diplomat Javier Pérez de Cuellar Dies at Age 100

(LIMA, Peru) — Javier Pérez de Cuellar, the two-term United Nations secretary-general who brokered a historic cease-fire between Iran and Iraq in 1988 and who in later life came out of retirement to help re-establish democracy in his Peruvian homeland, died Wednesday, Peru’s foreign ministry said. He was 100. His son, Francisco Pérez de Cuellar, said his father died at home of natural causes. Javier Pérez de Cuellar was “an outstanding Peruvian, a full-bodied democrat, who dedicated his l...

A “view” from the courtroom: “Violent agreement” and some disagreement

Every oral argument sitting of October Term 2019 has had one potential blockbuster case, whether involving gay and transgender rights in October, DACA recipients in November, the Second Amendment in December, and religious rights in January, with the forthcoming March and April sittings having their own candidates. For the two-week February sitting, which has trickled into the first week of March, most people would pick Wednesday’s abortion case, June Medical Services LLC v. Russo, as the blockb...

Argument analysis: Justices divided in challenge to CFPB structure

The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau is headed by a single director, who is appointed by the president and confirmed by the Senate to serve a five-year term. Once that director is in office, she can only be removed by the president for “inefficiency, neglect of duty, or malfeasance in office.” This morning both a California law firm under investigation by the CFPB and the CFPB itself told the Supreme Court that these restrictions on the removal of the bureau’s director are unconstitutional. ...

Oracle has the support of the Trump administration and some big media industry groups in its Supreme Court fight against Google. Here's why they're siding with Oracle. (ORCL, GOOG)

Oracle and Google are scheduled to face off before the US Supreme Court on March 24.  The 10-year-old dispute is based on Oracle's claim that Google stole a key component of its Java technology to build the Android operating system. Google rejects the charge, saying Oracle cannot copyright the code — known as APIs, or application programming interfaces — which allows programs to talk to each other. The Trump administration, through Solicitor General Noel Francisco, argues that Google is using...

The low-pressure area that had once been Tropical Cyclone Francisco has been lingering in the Southern Indian Ocean since Feb. 6 when it weakened below tropical cyclone status.

Mary is at The Heart of the Matter

“I am the Lady of the Rosary.” These are the words of the Blessed Virgin Mary when she revealed her identity to three children of Fatima, Portugal, in 1917. She taught them, “Pray, pray very much, and make sacrifices for sinners; for many souls go to hell, because there are none to sacrifice themselves and to pray for them.” In her apparitions, Our Lady was giving the three young vi­sionaries personal spiritual-warfare training and equipping them with a mighty weapon, the Rosary. The Queen M...

FTC files own petition, suggesting divide in federal government

It has been nearly a half-century since Congress gave the Federal Trade Commission the right to represent itself before the Supreme Court, at least when the U.S. solicitor general, who normally represents the federal government before the court, declines to do so. That right is rare among federal agencies, and the FTC has exercised it sparingly – between 1975 and November of 2019, it had represented itself before the court only four times. In December of 2019, it did so for the fifth time, askin...
