Liberal activists fearful of Democrats losing control of the Senate are pushing for stalwart liberal Justice Stephen Breyer to retire this year but Democratic senators don't share their enthusiasm, knowing a fall confirmation battle could quickly become a partisan circus. Senators say it's entirely up to Breyer, who is 82 years old, to make a decision on when to step down from the high court.
Although the evidence of voter fraud was a bunch of rhetorical junk, the strong-arming is unnerving. Trump and his gofers seemed to believe that if they bellowed loudly enough about “Dominion” or a missing laptop or Italian satellite lizard people, they might bully the DOJ and maybe the Supreme Court into nullifying the election results or holding some kind of “do-over election,” which would, of course, delegitimize the 245-year-old project of American democracy.
"He said, 'hey, we've been waiting for you,'" Zorri recalled of the 2017 incident, in which she was led into a small room for questioning after returning to the United States from a vacation in Italy. "The first thing that rushes through my mind is 'was my family murdered while I was on the plane and they're here to tell me about it?'
A Supreme Court ruling that went against the NCAA could open the door to schools using unlimited benefits tied to education to recruit top athletes. The NCAA´s loss in a 9-0 decision will not directly lead to play-for-pay in college athletics, but it did clear a path for future legal challenges that could be even more impactful.

NORTH TEXAS (CBSDFW.COM/CNN) – A unanimous Supreme Court said student athletes could receive education-related payments, in a case that could reshape college sports by allowing more money from a billion-dollar industry to go to the players. College sports raise billions of dollars from ticket sales, television contracts and merchandise, and supporters of the students say the players are being exploited and barred from the opportunity to monetize their talents.
As the topic of name, image and likeness is a hot-button issue in college sports these days, many were expecting the ruling to potentially bring about major changes in the way collegiate athletes can be compensated. Although the ruling was a unanimous 9-0 in favor of Shawne Alston, a former running back at West Virginia University, it was quite narrow in its scope.
The National Collegiate Athletic Association once had the tightest of clamps on college athlete compensation, maintaining a strict stance that any form of benefit that rewarded players for their participation would wreck a so-called “amateur model” that it had relied on for decades. When the NCAA meets on Tuesday to determine a new vision for college sports, however, its ironclad hold on the issue has been broken—and it has little leverage to retake control.
The Supreme Court has unanimously sided with a group of former college athletes and ruled that the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) cannot bar small payments to them. In its ruling on Monday, the Supreme Court said that the NCAA’s limits on benefits related to education offered by colleges to athletes in Division I basketball and football are not enforceable.

The Supreme Court handed down a heavily caveated victory for elite college athletes on Monday. The immediate impact of the Court’s unanimous decision in National Collegiate Athletic Association v. Alston is that many elite student-athletes will receive additional education-related compensations, such as additional scholarship money. But the case could have broader implications and could eventually lead to these athletes being paid salaries.
The Supreme Court on Monday dismissed as moot a case filed against the Migrant Protection Protocols (MPP), former President Trump's signature border management program that was nixed by the Biden administration earlier this month. Under MPP, also known as "Remain in Mexico," prospective asylum-seekers found crossing the U.S.-Mexico border could be returned to Mexico while their cases played out in U.S. immigration court.
The Supreme Court on Monday ruled against the NCAA in a landmark antitrust case that specifically challenged the association’s ability to have national limits on benefits for athletes that are related to education, but more broadly had raised doubts about its ability to limit benefits at all.
(Bloomberg) -- The U.S. Supreme Court left intact a board that has invalidated more than 2,000 patents, resolving constitutional issues by giving a presidentially appointed official more power to overturn the board’s decisions. Writing the court’s lead opinion, Chief Justice John Roberts said the director of the Patent & Trademark Office will now have power to review and reverse so-called inter partes review decisions by PTAB, as the board is known.
The U.S. Supreme Court reined in the power of patent judges on Monday, finding the lack of ability to review their decisions inconsistent with their status as “inferior officers” under the Constitution. Written by Chief Justice John Roberts, the ruling spells an overhaul of the U.S. patent regime.
