Liberals' Supreme Court Opinions are Changing | National Review
That history should inform our judgment of the risks of returning to a more modest understanding of the judicial function. The country was able to enjoy the blessings of constitutional government without making nearly as extensive use of judicial review as we now do. And the distortions created by too active a judiciary, particularly in constitutional matters, are harder to correct than those created by passivity.

Newt Gingrich Suggests That Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh Is a Trump Guy
Well, the implication here is....Hell, we all know what Newt is saying. We knew it when Kavanaugh’s name randomly appeared as a frontrunner for the job. We knew it when all of the Congressional white boys went apeshit over the way that Kavanaugh was treated during a sexual-assault investigation in which he was the accused, not the accuser. We knew it when the Congressional frat boys pushed to get him confirmed.

Supreme Court case could decide Facebook, Twitter power to regulate speech • CNBC
Tucker Higgins:
<p>The Supreme Court has agreed to hear a case that could determine whether users can challenge social media companies on free speech grounds.

The case, Manhattan Community Access Corp. v. Halleck, No. 17-702, centers on whether a private operator of a public access television network is considered a state actor, which can be sued for First Amendment violations.

The case could have broader implications for social media and other media outlets. In particular, a broad ruling from the high court could open the country's largest technology companies up to First Amendment lawsuits.

That could shape the ability of companies like Facebook, Twitter and Alphabet's Google to control the content on their platforms as lawmakers clamor for more regulation and activists on the left and right spar over issues related to censorship and harassment.

The Supreme Court accepted the case on Friday. It is the first case taken by a reconstituted high court after Justice Brett Kavanaugh's confirmation earlier this month.

On its face, the case has nothing to do with social media at all. Rather, the facts of the case concern public access television, and two producers who claim they were punished for expressing their political views. The producers, DeeDee Halleck and Jesus Melendez, say that Manhattan Neighborhood Network suspended them for expressing views that were critical of the network.

In making the argument to the justices that the case was worthy of review, attorneys for MNN said the court could use the case to resolve a lingering dispute over the power of social media companies to regulate the content on their platforms.

While the First Amendment is meant to protect citizens against government attempts to limit speech, there are certain situations in which private companies can be subject to First Amendment liability. </p>

We're betting on Kavanaugh ruling in favour of it being a "state actor", yes?

How the Trump Administration Is Remaking the Courts - The New York Times
To be sure, Ho’s was a dissenting opinion, but what so cheered members of the conservative legal movement is that it was likely the first of many, because Ho is only 45. And because there will be more and more judges like Ho on the federal bench, it’s only a matter of time before such opinions will no longer be dissents. Indeed, after just 18 months, Trump has “flipped” two circuits — the Sixth and Seventh — from what Trump’s supporters in the conservative legal movement consider “liberal” to more properly conservative. Two more — the Eighth and the 11th — are on the verge of tipping. Even circuits that are decidedly liberal are undergoing significant changes. “It’ll be really important for the Second and the Ninth Circuits to have between two and four really good, high-octane intellectual conservative jurists,” explains a person close to the judicial-nominations process, “because dissents provide a signaling function to the U.S. Supreme Court, and those are very important circuits.”

Supreme Court plunges dagger deep into the heart of climate fight—as Antarctica stares down collapse
In a welcome basket yesterday, the majority of the Supreme Court rebuffed an appeal of its newest member Brett Kavanaugh’s ruling yesterday, back when he was on the D.C. Circuit court. They cavalierly passed on hearing an appeal of a rule, issued by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency under President Obama, that regulates hydrofluorocarbons, a potent greenhouse gas. The Trump administration had withdrawn the rule to “rewrite” it—in other words, they’ll do absolutely nothing about a greenhouse gas that is responsible for the warming of the southern ocean.

This insanely dangerous move by the nation’s highest court follows a dire report released by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change on Monday, warning that the world has exactly 12 years to stop 45% of carbon dioxide emissions and just 32 years to reach zero emissions. That unfathomable requirement of rapid decarbonization presents our last opportunity to prevent cataclysmic effects of climate change—by keeping temperature rise limited to 1.5°C—and even then, it may not work. The consortium of the world’s top climate scientists warned governmental leaders that the Paris Accord is nowhere near enough to prevent a civilization-ending apocalypse.
