Link to the two affirmative action cases being argued tomorrow… All nine Justices will sit for the North Carolina case, but Justice Jackson will be recused for the Harvard case. Unlikely her recusal will make a bit of difference.
There is ONLY one conclusion that the Justices can come to.
They must drive a stake into the heart of affirmative action and kill it forever. Admissions must be strictly race neutral.
No other cases schedule tomorrow, but expecting an order list.
Well, after oral arguments, we clearly have a 6-3 majority to ban affirmative action in North Carolina and 6-2 in Harvard. There won’t be a lot of back and forth on this, so we could see these decisions as early as December. Possibly just a decision in North Carolina and a vacate and remand in Harvard.
The Supreme Court denied certiorari in a case from the DC Circuit, leaving intact a ruling giving the United States broad authority to require masks on planes and trains.
Link to today’s order list.
From said list:
22-5162 WEIDRICK, MARY JO V. BIDEN, PRESIDENT OF U.S., ET AL. Because the Court lacks a quorum, 28 U. S. C. §1, and since the qualified Justices are of the opinion that the case cannot be heard and determined at the next Term of the Court, the judgment is affirmed under 28 U. S. C. §2109, which provides that under these circumstances “the court shall enter its order affirming the judgment of the court from which the case was brought for review with the same effect as upon affirmance by an equally divided court.” The Chief Justice, Justice Thomas, Justice Alito, Justice Sotomayor, Justice Kavanaugh, Justice Barrett, and Justice Jackson took no part in the consideration or decision of this petition.
Yes, evidently the government is still raping Mary Jo Weidrick’s brain.
I don’t think she makes that particular claim in this latest filing, but it is still up to her usual looney tunes standards.
