The Conservative Pipeline to the Supreme Court | The New Yorker
Leo has for many years been the executive vice-president of the Federalist Society, a nationwide organization of conservative lawyers, based in Washington. Leo served, in effect, as Trump’s subcontractor on the selection of Gorsuch, who was confirmed by a vote of 54–45, last week, [...]. Leo’s role in the nomination capped a period of extraordinary influence for him and for the Federalist Society. During the Administration of George W. Bush, Leo also played a crucial part in the nominations of John Roberts and Samuel Alito. Now that Gorsuch has been confirmed, Leo is responsible, to a considerable extent, for a third of the Supreme Court.

Can Police Track You Through Your Cellphone Without A Warrant?
Carpenter v. United States

“In this case, as in others, prosecutors argue that the Supreme Court has long viewed information shared by a consumer as fair game without a warrant. Even before the Stored Communications law was enacted, the high court ruled that you lose your Fourth Amendment right to privacy when you share information with a third party, like the phone company.”

Another Big Win: SCOTUS Just Banned Domestic Abusers From Owning Firearms
In this morning's 6-2 Supreme Court decision, the crime of reckless domestic violence and abuse is now considered a misdemeanor that justifies firearms possession restriction. What does that mean? It means closing one of the many gaping loopholes in gun control legislation and cracking down on violent domestic crime. Most importantly, it means safer homes for those most at risk: women (especially women of color), LGBTQ+ folks, and children.



The Voisine v. United States decision extended the previous ruling in United States v. Castleman that declared the “firearms possession by convicted felons” illegal. So why wasn’t this a thing before?

Sisi’s Pyrrhic Victory - Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, June 27, 2017
While Sisi’s regime struggled to bring the State Council fully under control, parliament issued a new law on April 26 (swiftly approved by the Sisi) that changed the selection process for heads of judicial bodies. Before, the process had been based on seniority, and the president simply ratified the appointments, whereas now each judicial body proposes three names, allowing the president to make the selection from among them. This was widely seen as a move to punish Yehia Dakroury, the judge responsible for the CAJ court order in June 2016, who was due to take over as the head of the State Council. In defiance of this new law, on May 13 the State Council nominated Dakroury as its sole candidate for council chief, rather than the three candidates as stipulated. Sisi did not confirm Dakroury’s nomination, and is instead expected to appoint Ahmed Abul Azm, a strong supporter of Sisi on the State Council. Even so, the council’s move shows that even though the judiciary is closely allied with the regime, it still has a measure of independence that it is willing to assert in certain circumstances.
