Reading the IG report, one can imagine a MAGA hat-wearing Greek chorus in the background chanting, "If a Republican had done this….."  Rep. Trey Gowdy, the Republican former prosecutor who has been defending the DOJ and decried attacks on the FBI, raises that very point in his response:"The treatment afforded to former Secretary Clinton and other potential subjects and targets was starkly different from the FBI's investigation into Trump campaign officials. Voluntariness and consent in the former were replaced with search warrants, subpoenas, and other compulsory processes… [read post]

Despite denials from Conway and others, it’s pretty clear that the White House moved to its zero-tolerance policy in order to put pressure on Democrats in Congress to move to the White House position on border security and immigration reform. So far it’s backfiring, though, and forcing Trump’s allies to run for political cover, thanks at least in part to the confusion among Trump’s team as to whether this was actually a desired outcome or not. It’s time to come up with a Plan B, and maybe to take a second look at the advisors who drove this decision in the… [read post]

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) recently issued a warning about the dangers of 15-passenger vans. NHTSA warns that these vehicles are dangerous in the hands of inexperienced drivers. According to NHTSA, 15-passenger vans have a high center of gravity that increases the risk of a rollover accident. Statistics published by NHTSA show that rollovers cause roughly 60 percent of crashes involving these vehicles. In addition, older models of these vans may lack modern safety features that can prevent other types of accidents. There are a few reasons why… [read post]

by Dennis Crouch In the pending case of Helsinn Healthcare S.A. v. Teva Pharmaceuticals USA, Inc., et al., No. 17-1229 (Supreme Court 2018), the petitioner has asked the Supreme Court to offer its statement on whether Congress altered the “on sale bar” to now apply only to non-confidential sales or offers.

The attempt by Wisconsin Democrats to claim partisan gerrymandering as a form of actionable discrimination has failed at the Supreme Court — at least for now. In a decision joined at least in part by all nine justices, the court sent Gill v Whitford back to the district court after ruling that the plaintiffs failed to show “concrete and particularized injuries.” However, the decision stops short of dismissing the effort entirely, allowing the plaintiffs an opportunity to try again: via Those darn passive virtues.

by Michael C. DorfThis is shaping up as a real nothing of a Supreme Court Term. Two weeks ago, the Court ducked the important questions in Masterpiece Cakeshop and Hughes v. United States. Today the Court ducked the question whether claims challenging partisan gerrymandering present non-justiciable political questions and if not, how to adjudicate them. In a brief per curiam in Benisek v. Lamone, the Court affirmed the district court's denial of preliminary injunctive relief in Republicans' challenge to Maryland gerrymandering, relying entirely on the technical details of the standard… [read post]
