Another glimpse into the shadow docket

A scalpel, a bulldozer and the Affordable Care Act

The Supreme Court will hear argument Tuesday in one of the term’s biggest blockbusters: California v. Texas, the constitutional challenge to the Affordable Care Act. A group of Republican-governed states say the law’s individual insurance mandate is unconstitutional – and they are asking the court to strike down the entire law along with the mandate. Lydia Wheeler, a senior legal reporter for Bloomberg Law, sits down with SCOTUStalk host Amy Howe to preview the case and discuss how the three newbies on the bench – Justices Neil Gorsuch, Brett Kavanaugh and Amy Coney Barrett – may approach the constitutionality of the mandate and the legal doctrine known as severability.

Who is Amy Coney Barrett?

“We’ll just have to keep doing the work”: Ginsburg’s clerks remember her example in a tumultuous year

The members of the 2016-17 clerk class for Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg started their clerkship amid great uncertainty and a grieving court. In the second in a two-part series of interviews with former Ginsburg clerks, SCOTUStalk host Amy Howe talked with all four of the justice’s clerks from that term: Subash Iyer, Hajin Kim, Beth Neitzel and Parker Rider-Longmaid. Between the recent death of Justice Antonin Scalia, a contentious election, and two nominations for one seat, they describe the year as “a slow-motion train wreck.” But amid the chaos, they remember Ginsburg’s commitment to doing the work, notable cases that advanced justice, and the few special times they made her laugh.

Grieving RBG: Words of sorrow and gratitude from mourners at the court

As soon as the public learned of the death of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg on Friday evening, mourners began gathering outside the Supreme Court.

Over the weekend, SCOTUSblog’s deputy manager, Katie Bart, interviewed members of the public who gathered in remembrance and mourning. Their words make up the latest episode of SCOTUStalk.Full Transcript:[00:00:00] Oyez! Oyez!

SCOTUStalk heads to the ballot box: The Supreme Court and the 2020 election

Ever since Bush v. Gore, the case that effectively decided the 2000 presidential race, the Supreme Court increasingly has been asked to intervene in fraught disputes over election procedures. Add in a pandemic, and the 2020 election season promises to be unprecedented. This week on SCOTUStalk, SCOTUSblog’s social media editor, Katie Barlow, joins Amy Howe to break down the court’s influence on the election. They survey major election-related rulings the justices have already handed down this summer and preview what role the court might play in the run-up to Election Day – and, potentially, the weeks afterward. Katie and Amy also discuss the launch of an exciting new project between SCOTUSblog and Election Law at Ohio State: the 2020 Election Litigation Tracker.

SCOTUS spotlight: Deanne Maynard on ‘split-second decisions’ as an oral advocate

Deanne Maynard, co-chair of Morrison & Foerster’s appellate and Supreme Court practice, has argued 14 cases before the Supreme Court since her first oral argument in 2004. On this week’s episode of SCOTUStalk, Amy Howe interviews Maynard on how she prepares to argue before the justices, how she pivots away from hostile questions, and why hypotheticals can be the toughest questions of all. Howe also takes Maynard back to her first oral argument — accompanied by live audio — and what went through her mind when Justice John Paul Stevens asked Maynard a question before she even made it up to the lectern.
