On Monday, two plaintiffs filed what are believed to be the first lawsuits against a Texas doctor who admitted that he performed an abortion apparently in violation of the state’s new abortion law. The Texas law is unique in that it’s not enforced by state officials. Those realities could well persuade a Texas court that the Legislature overstepped its authority in deputizing citizens of other states to enforce Texas law. The Texas law appears to allow any person to sue those involved in providing unlawful abortions for money damages. But that point has absolutely nothing, zero-point-zero, to do with a complaint against Braid pursuant to the Texas abortion law.

Social media users are sharing a screenshot showing part of a satirical article that claims screaming expletives about U.S. President Joe Biden is illegal. The description in one post reads: “So now it’s dangerous and illegal?!?! Reuters found no evidence that saying expletives at a president would be illegal. “What the First Amendment does is it protects our right to say anything subject only to very limited exceptions,” Goldberg said. It is not illegal to curse about the president.

Bypassing Republicans would likely require altering or abandoning the Senate's filibuster rule, which requires 60 of the chamber's 100 members to agree on most legislation. "As Senator Manchin said earlier this year regarding congressional action on voting rights, inaction is not an option," Schumer said on the Senate floor. In recent years, the Senate has eliminated the filibuster rule on executive branch nominations, including presidential picks for the U.S. Supreme Court. In June, all 50 Senate Republicans blocked an ambitious voting rights bill. Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell on Tuesday slammed the door on the new bill.

Storm clouds roll in over the U.S. Supreme Court in Washington, U.S., September 1, 2021. read moreMississippi's lawyers said in papers filed with the court in July that the Roe v. Wade ruling and the 1992 decision were both "egregiously wrong" and should be overturned. It has been a long-standing aim of religious conservatives to overturn Roe v. Wade. The Mississippi law, enacted in 2018, would ban abortion much earlier than that. The Supreme Court in 2016 and 2020 struck down restrictive abortion laws in Texas and Louisiana, but new justices appointed by Republican former President Donald Trump have moved the court further rightward.

Field Marshal Hussein Tantawi (C) attends the funeral of Egypt's former intelligence chief Omar Suleiman in Cairo July 21, 2012. Tantawi - a decorated veteran of wars against Israel in 1956, 1967 and 1973 - was defence minister for nearly 21 years. He led the Supreme Council of the Armed Forces (SCAF) that ruled Egypt for a year-and-a-half after the removal of long-ruling President Hosni Mubarak in February 2011. Tantawi then disappeared from view until President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi came to power after leading the army to overthrow Mursi in 2013 amid mass protests. The general command of the armed forces and cabinet also mourned the former military leader.

Over 500 prominent female athletes, including Megan Rapinoe and Sue Bird, urged the Supreme Court to protect abortion rights. The Supreme Court will consider a major abortion case in the upcoming term. The Supreme Court is set to hear arguments on the Mississippi case, Dobbs v. Jackson Women's Health Organization, starting December 1. The female athletes joined hundreds of state legislators and congressional lawmakers who have also recently signed on to amicus briefs demanding the Supreme Court uphold abortion rights. The justices will hand down their ruling on the abortion case, which is widely considered a direct challenge to Roe and Casey, at the end of June next year.

Sen. Elizabeth Warren and Rep. Cori Bush unveiled a bill to protect renters from eviction during the ongoing pandemic. of Health and Human Services to automatically implement an eviction ban. This comes after the Supreme Court struck down Biden's eviction ban extension in August. On August 3, Biden's Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) issued a new eviction ban following pressure from progressives, after a nationwide ban had just lapsed on July 31. And given the surge of the Delta variant, there isn't any way to know when the pandemic will end and how long the proposed eviction ban would need to last.

When I left my home state, Puebla, in 2010 to attend law school in Mexico City, I learned that first-trimester abortions were made legal in the capital of our country in 2007. After Mexico City opened the door to legalization, states slowly followed. However, the decision does not translate into an immediate decriminalization of abortion in all states, since abortion is still a crime on the books in 28 local criminal codes. We are early yet in the story of our rights in Mexico. Women living outside of Mexico City, Oaxaca, Veracruz or Hidalgo — the areas where abortion rights have progressed the farthest — still have to travel to have an abortion.

The Supreme Court has scheduled arguments for the highly anticipated Mississippi abortion case. The case, which will consider the legality of Mississippi's ban on most abortions after 15 weeks of pregnancy, will be heard Dec. 1, according to the court. The case also comes after the high court declined to block Texas' restrictive abortion law, which bans abortions at around six weeks of pregnancy — before most women know they are pregnant — without any exceptions for rape and incest. Mississippi lawmakers in 2018 voted to ban abortions after 15 weeks except in cases of medical emergencies or severe fetal abnormality. Circuit Court of Appeals affirmed the ruling, prompting the state's appeal to the Supreme Court.

Nearly 900 state legislators from 45 states asked the Supreme Court on Monday to uphold Roe v. Wade and reject Mississippi’s 15-week abortion ban, a direct attack on the landmark decision that legalized abortion nationwide. The brief was filed Monday morning by the State Innovation Exchange, a progressive legislation advocacy group, in the case of Dobbs v. Jackson Women's Health Organization. The brief's organizers believe it's the largest-ever collection of state legislators to have signed a brief in a Supreme Court case related to abortion access. Legislators from states at risk of banning abortion in the absence or gutting of Roe have an interest in protecting Roe so abortion remains legal in their state,” the brief states. In a filing in July, lawyers for the state of Mississippi urged the Supreme Court to not only uphold the state's law, but to also explicitly overturn Roe v. Wade and Planned Parenthood v. Casey.

But the 9-year-old wasn’t allowed in that school — because she was Mexican American. Instead, each day she walked past her dream school and trudged over to the “Mexican school,” a rundown building next to a cow pasture. It also paved the way for the Brown v. Board of Education decision at the U.S. Supreme Court, which found segregation in public schools unconstitutional. Earl Warren signed legislation to officially end desegregation in public schools. By then, the chief justice was Earl Warren, who sided with Marshall and wrote the majority opinion ending segregation in public schools.

WASHINGTON—The Supreme Court set Dec. 1 for arguments over a Mississippi law banning most abortions after 15 weeks, a case that could bring the court’s most significant ruling on reproductive rights since the Roe v. Wade decision in 1973. The court announced the date on Monday, as dozens of organizations, officials and advocates submitted briefs seeking to influence the decision before a midnight filing deadline. While many positions were predictable—the National Right to Life Committee favoring the ban, the American Civil Liberties Union in opposition—the case drew a range of submissions from around the world.

Among other things, it required executive branch officials to make public, “to the greatest extent practicable,” decisions from the intelligence court that included significant legal determinations. Under separation-of-powers principles, they say, courts rather than the executive branch should decide whether judicial opinions ought to be made public.

Prosecutors and lawyers for Trump Organization CFO Allen Weisselberg clashed in a court hearing Monday.

Prosecutors with the office of Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance Jr. have accused Weisselberg and the Trump Organization of wide-ranging tax crimes.

A placard saying, Abortion is a Human Right, is seen during the "Stop The Bans Day of Action for Abortion Rights" rally in front of the Supreme Court in Washington, DC. The Supreme Court will hear oral arguments on Dec. 1 in a case that threatens to overturn the decades-old abortion protections established under Roe v. Wade. The case, Dobbs v. Jackson Women's Health Organization, takes aim at the Supreme Court precedent barring states from banning abortions prior to a fetus becoming viable, or capable of living outside the womb. The Texas law bars most abortions after six weeks. The Supreme Court agreed in mid-May to hear arguments over Mississippi's abortion law after the next term begins in October.

U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken announced the move on Twitter, saying a top aide of Guatemalan Attorney General Consuelo Porras was also on the list, which adds to growing U.S. concerns about efforts to tackle graft in both countries. El Salvador's President Nayib Bukele, who has a strained relationship with Washington, responded on Twitter saying: "It's clear the list has NOTHING to do with "corruption", it's pure politics and the lowest kind of interference." Bukele questioned why no Salvadoran opposition figures were on the list, or anyone from the Honduran government.

Mandatory Credit: Kyle Terada-USA TODAY Sports/File PhotoWASHINGTON, Sept 20 (Reuters) - A group of prominent women athletes including soccer star Megan Rapinoe and basketball standouts Diana Taurasi and Sue Bird on Monday urged the U.S. Supreme Court to protect abortion rights in a case involving Mississippi's Republican-backed bid to ban the procedure after 15 weeks of pregnancy. Abortion opponents have asked the court, which has a 6-3 conservative majority, to overturn the landmark 1973 Roe v. Wade ruling that recognized a woman's right to end a pregnancy and made abortion legal nationwide after it was outlawed in certain states. More than 500 athletes and groups signed a friend-of-the-court brief to the justices, including 26 Olympians, 73 professional athletes and various athlete associations. They argued that abortion rights have helped the growth of women's sports and expressed concern that future athletes would suffer without those protections. Mississippi's court filing marked the first time that the Republican-governed state, in seeking to revive a law blocked by lower courts, made overturning Roe v. Wade a central part of its argument.

A disbarred former attorney in Arkansas is suing a Texas doctor for performing an abortion. The lawsuit presents the first publicized legal challenge to Texas' new abortion restrictions. Dr. Alan Braid admitted to performing the abortion in a Washington Post opinion article on Saturday. The lawsuit represents the first legal test to the Texas abortion law — considered to be one of the most restrictive in the nation — that took effect on September 1. The Biden administration filed a lawsuit against Texas earlier this month in an attempt to block the law.

Justice Dept. Urges Supreme Court to Uphold Roe v. Wade

WASHINGTON — The Justice Department urged the Supreme Court on Monday to reaffirm Roe v. Wade when it hears a case challenging Mississippi’s restrictive abortion law later this year, arguing that any other decision would uphold an unconstitutional law and undermine a doctrine that gives power to Supreme Court precedents. The department also asked for permission to present oral arguments when the case is heard on Dec. 1, an indication of the significance of this particular legal fight in the larger effort to overturn Roe and enact abortion bans across the country. The briefs, filed by the acting solicitor general, Brian H. Fletcher, are the latest step by the Biden Justice Department to try to protect the legal right to an abortion. The Justice Department was one of more than 40 parties to file a friend-of-the-court brief in support of Jackson Women’s Health Organization, the only abortion provider in Mississippi. In all, more than 140 supporters and detractors of the Mississippi law have filed such briefs this year.

REUTERS/Jonathan ErnstSept 20 (Reuters) - A San Antonio physician who announced he gave an abortion to a woman in defiance of a new Texas law was sued in Texas state court on Monday by two plaintiffs from other states who want to test the law's constitutionality. "I think it's a decision between her and her doctor," he said when asked whether he supported giving women the right to choose abortion access. Monday's lawsuits are to date the most direct test of the legality of the Texas abortion ban, which is one of the most restrictive such laws in the United States. Abortion rights groups and the U.S. Justice Department have also sued Texas over the law in federal court, saying it violates a woman's constitutional right to abortion before the fetus is viable. Texas Right to Life, a state anti-abortion group, did not return a call for comment.

This overlap between judicial ideology and the policy preferences of partisan political actors has long been a feature of our constitutional politics. The Supreme Court possesses nearly complete discretion over its docket, and most of its decisions lack clear partisan implications — many are even unanimous. Politically contentious cases are likely to drive perceptions that the court is divided by political rather than legal disagreement. But it comes at a potential cost of undermining the authority and perceived legitimacy of the court as an institution. Justices who take these steps to disentangle themselves from partisanship may have to pay some price for doing so.
