Thursday round-up

Briefly:

  • For The Wall Street Journal, Jess Bravin reports that a “federal judge in Maryland said Wednesday that President Trump’s public remarks about immigrants and personal insistence on placing a citizenship question on the census could help determine whether the government intended to discriminate against Hispanics by adding the query.”
  • At The George Washington Law Review’s On the Docket blog, Robin Maher writes that although “[t]he decision [in Flowers v. Mississippi, in which the court held that a prosecutor’s repeated use of peremptory challenges to remove black people from the jury pool violated the Constitution], is very welcome, … Supreme Court decisions will not end racial jury discrimination.”
  • At Take Care, Joshua Matz “address[es] three of the most common arguments against protecting transgender people under Title VII” in the latest of a series of posts about a case next term that presents the question.

We rely on our readers to send us links for our round-up. If you have or know of a recent (published in the last two or three days) article, post, podcast or op-ed relating to the Supreme Court that you’d like us to consider for inclusion in the round-up, please send it to roundup [at] scotusblog.com. Thank you!
