In Montana Landowners’ Case, Justices Ponder What Happens When SCOTUS Rulings Throw a Wrench into Statutory Interpretation

The justices were jovial as they heard oral arguments Wednesday in Wilkins v. United States, a dispute with underlying facts befitting an episode of Yellowstone: Montana landowners suing the federal government for land-locking them with an improper easement. At stake, though, is not the justices’ views on the Western wilderness, but rather, whether the federal government’s 12-year limitation on lawsuits applies to the landowners even when recent SCOTUS rulings in other cases might indicate otherwise.

Supreme Court approval ticks up in new poll

The Supreme Court’s approval rating ticked up from one of its lowest ratings in modern history, rising to 44 percent, according to a new poll. The poll from Marquette University Law School showed the court’s approval rating rose 4 points from a poll conducted in September. The rating had previously dropped to 38 percent in a poll in July in the aftermath of the court overturning Roe v. Wade, which established a federal right to abortion, in June.

The Supreme Court Case That’s All About Donald Trump

In just a few days, on December 7, the Supreme Court will consider a case that could have dire implications for American democracy, Moore v. Harper. Moore concerns the “independent state legislature” theory: the idea that the Constitution grants state legislatures some level of special authority in administering federal elections that may not be constrained by state courts or perhaps even state constitutions. The idea is, to put it mildly, contested. The conservative jurist J. Michael Luttig, who recently signed on as co-counsel for litigants opposing the independent state legislature theory in Moore, has argued in The Atlantic that Moore represents “the most important case for American democracy in the almost two and a half centuries since America’s founding” and cautioned that the theory is a key part of “the Republican blueprint to steal the 2024 election.” Former Attorney General Eric Holder warned that, depending on how the Court rules, Moore could pose “an existential threat to our democracy.”

The Supreme Court Case That Could Drain The Swamp?

“The Question: How can you support, and defend, the Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic? Answer: You investigate. If there are claims that there is a threat, even if you don’t believe there is a threat, you investigate. How else can you determine if there is a threat unless you investigate? You can’t. Were there claims of a threat to the Constitution? Yes. Where did these serious claims come from? 100 members of Congress. What was the threat? That there were enemies of the Constitution who successfully rigged the 2020 election. Is this lawsuit about a rigged election? No, it’s about the members of Congress who voted AGAINST the investigation thereby thwarting the investigation. Was this a clear violation of their oath? YES.”

Progressive Groups Call For Senate Investigation Into Supreme Court Corruption

More than 60 progressive groups called for the Senate Judiciary Committee to investigate ethics lapses plaguing the Supreme Court in a letter sent on Tuesday. Groups including Demand Justice, Planned Parenthood, NARAL Pro-Choice America, the National Organization for Women and Indivisible sent a letter urging the committee to open an investigation into the court’s lack of a binding ethics code. It comes on the heels of allegations that Justice Samuel Alito leaked the outcome of his 2014 decision in Burwell v.
