John Paul Stevens, who served on the United States Supreme Court from 1975 until his retirement in 2010, has died. He was 99. Stevens died Tuesday at Holy Cross Hospital in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, of complications following a stroke he suffered on July 15. Stevens, known for his sporty bow ties, was born near the end of the wartime presidency of Woodrow Wilson, the nation's 28th president. He retired to allow his successor to be nominated by Barack Obama, the 44th president, the Associated Press reported at the time. Stevens was born into a family that owned a large hotel in Chicago that attracted celebrities as guests. As a child, he made the acquaintance of Amelia Earhart and Charles Lindbergh. The husband of a missing San Antonio, Texas, woman was charged with murder after authorities confirmed they'd found the remains 29-year-old Andreen McDonald. The Bexar County Sheriff's Office arrested Andre McDonald, 40, just two days after authorities found a human skull and … [Read more...] about Former Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens Dies

The issue came up after the United States Supreme Court announced that it’s planning to consider three separate cases of alleged discrimination against LGBTs, one of which involves a biological … [Read more...] about If the Supreme Court rules in favor of “gender identity,” it will cause employers nationwide to avoid hiring transgender candidates
On January 22, 1973, the United States Supreme Court ruled 7 to 2 that the ability to terminate a pregnancy was a constitutional right. Now, less than five decades later, with a number of lower-court abortion decisions advancing and the most conservative Supreme Court since the 1930s, abortion opponents could be close to getting what they have wanted ever since Roe v. Wade: the decision’s reversal. I am an abortion rights activist, and frankly, I couldn’t be happier. Story Continued Below Anti-abortion legal groups appear determined to use one of the several lower-court abortion cases currently pending to directly challenge Roe in the coming years. Right now, there are more than 20 cases in line at the Supreme Court that could fundamentally alter abortion rights as enshrined in Roe. And some are tired of waiting: Last week, Texas’ 5th Circuit Court of Appeals, the most conservative in the country, appeared to try to force the Supreme Court to take up abortion rights … [Read more...] about I Am an Abortion Rights Activist.

By JOEY BUNCHColoradoPolitics.comColorado’s most important political football is on the tee. The state Supreme Court soon could put the future of the Taxpayer’s Bill of Rights in play or out of reach.Liberals and conservatives are paying close attention, because TABOR controls how the state caps spending and government growth. Critics say it also hobbles Colorado’s ability to invest in schools, transportation and the other spoils of population growth.Some critics want voters to decide this year if TABOR can be undone with a ballot initiative. Opponents and the law say TABOR is so big and multilayered that a single vote would violate the state’s “single subject rule” that says ballot questions can only take up one thing at a time.“People put it in the Constitution as one measure; it seems like people ought to have the power to take it out as one measure,” said Carol Hedges, executive director of the Colorado Fiscal Institute, which filed … [Read more...] about TABOR a target unless state Supreme Court puts it out of reach
Jonathan Oosting The Detroit News Published 5:32 PM EST Jan 25, 2019 Lansing — Michigan Republicans are asking the U.S. Supreme Court to hit pause on a federal lawsuit alleging GOP gerrymandering, a move that could disrupt a settlement agreement announced Friday by Democratic Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson. Benson's deal with plaintiffs would require Michigan to redraw at least 11 state House districts. It would likely force a recalibration of an unknown number of surrounding districts as well. But attorneys for Republican lawmakers are asking the nation’s highest court to intervene and delay any action in the suit until justices consider arguments in similar gerrymandering cases out of North Carolina and Maryland they are expected to take up in March. “The Supreme Court will be ruling soon on the exact issues presented in this case, and this afternoon we asked the United States Supreme Court to stay this entire proceeding,” Attorney Charlie Spies … [Read more...] about GOP asks Supreme Court to block Dem settlement in gerrymandering suit
