Thursday round-up


  • At Empirical SCOTUS, Adam Feldman analyzes the citations to Supreme Court cases in the justices’ signed majority opinions last term, noting, among other things, that “three justices – Justices Kagan, Breyer, and Alito — cited Justice Scalia’s opinions more than those from any other justice including themselves.”
  • At The Huffington Post, Elliot Mincberg weighs in on the Supreme Court debut of Justice Neil Gorsuch, maintaining that “[o]n two issues in particular, despite his defenders’ claims during his confirmation hearings, Gorsuch has already become one of the most far-right justices on the Court: deference to presidential authority, and money in politics and elections.”
  • At his eponymous blog, Lyle Denniston reports that the plaintiffs challenging the administration’s travel ban submitted their final brief last night in Hawaii district court in support of their claim that “the Supreme Court’s June 26 ruling on enforcement of President Trump’s immigration executive order permits the entry of more foreign nationals and refugees than the Administration is now allowing.”

Remember, we rely exclusively 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, or op-ed relating to the Court that you’d like us to consider for inclusion in the round-up, please send it to roundup [at]
