SCOTUS: Case Rulings Summer 2018

Tiss the Season for the US Supreme Court to issue rulings:

So maybe we can post them here as they come in and talk about how we think they should or will be ruled.

EDIT to list some of the big cases:



Gill v. Whitford and Benisek v. Lamone

These are 2 gerrymandering cases. The cases are to decided can a party draw maps to give their party a perceived advantage?

.



Janus v. AFSCME

Can you be FORCED to pay UNION fees even if you are not in one? I would have thought NOT... I think this case will be a union buster and I believe that is better for the workers--well for the good ones.



Carpenter v. United States

Huge civil liberties case! Can the government get your phone records without a warrant? (the real question is does it matter whose phone it is or rather who pays for it?)



Trump v. Hawaii


Travel ban case




South Dakota v. Wayfair

Can a state collect sales tax if that company has no physical presence in that state?

Anyone for banning the AR15 must be on the side of the criminal as once banned only criminals will have them.

SCOUTS rules in favor of Cake Baker...

An early ruling has come out giving the Colorado Cake baker the win. A big win for religious freedom was ruled 7 to 2 in favor of the baker.

This is apparently a very narrow ruling and for now, only applies to this case. This goes even further than what I thought. I thought they would say "make the cake" but rule that it ends there--that is no special decorations or designs and no on-site services.

But that was not the meat (or cake) of one of the main reasons of the ruling. The court said that the state's The Civil Rights Commission was overly hostile.

A 7-2 ruling does indicate a narrow holding.

narrow means in scope. It only applies in this or under limited situations. Not in terms of how it was voted on.

an example of a broad ruling would be same-sex marriages.

The world's most biased court. A NK kind of court.
