Supreme Court divided over fight for Trump's financial records  

...........The dispute’s political and constitutional implications are enormous and could see the court could alter the balance of power between government branches, or determine whether Trump can be implicated in a New York state criminal probe.

With rulings expected to arrive just months before Election Day, a closely divided decision — particularly one that falls along ideological lines, which Roberts is likely striving to avoid

— could make control over future court vacancies an even more salient issue at the 2020 ballot box........

Supreme Court denies California church's challenge to state restrictions

 
"The Supreme Court issued a rare late-night ruling on Friday against a California church challenging the state’s stay-at-home order.In a 5-4 vote, Chief Justice John Roberts broke from other conservative justices to rule in favor of the state. The case was brought by the South Bay United Pentecostal Church in Chula Vista, Calif., which said Gov. Gavin Newsom’s (D) stay-at-home order ignored religious freedoms.Roberts noted in an opinion concurring in the unsigned ruling that the restrictions in place apply to nonreligious gatherings and therefore don’t pose a threat to religious liberties. 

“Although California’s guidelines place restrictions on places of worship, those restrictions appear consistent with the free exercise clause of the First Amendment,” Roberts wrote............

Supreme Court rules immigrants who fear torture can appeal deportations in court

n a 7-2 decision, the high court rejected the Trump administration's argument that foreigners tagged for deportation have no right to judicial review if their request for relief under the international Convention Against Torture (CAT) is denied.

The decision will allow immigrants who have been convicted of a crime and designated for deportation to make factual challenges in court when the Department of Justice's Board of Immigration Appeals decides that they do not qualify for deportation protection under CAT.  ...........................

In landmark case, Supreme Court rules LGBTQ workers are protected from job discrimination

The decision said Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, which makes it illegal for employers to discriminate because of a person's sex, also covers sexual orientation and transgender status.
 
........By a vote of 6-3, the court said Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, which makes it illegal for employers to discriminate because of a person's sex, among other factors, also covers sexual orientation and transgender status. It upheld rulings from lower courts that said sexual orientation discrimination was a form of sex discrimination.
 

Equally surprising was that the decision was written by President Donald Trump's first Supreme Court appointee, Neil Gorsuch, who was joined by Chief Justice John Roberts and the court's four more liberal members to form a majority. ............

AP Explains: US Supreme Court ruling on DACA program

..........The court on Thursday ruled President Donald Trump didn’t properly end the program, which then-President Barack Obama created in 2012. Trump attempted to end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program in 2017 shortly after being elected on a largely anti-immigrant platform. ...........

The Supreme Court’s decision to keep DACA intact means the 650,000 people who are enrolled will keep their protections, which last two years. But the program hasn’t accepted any new applicants in a couple of years, and it’s unclear whether people who would have qualified for the program but couldn’t apply after Trump announced he was rescinding it will now be able to apply.

 

Sarah Pierce, a policy analyst at the Migration Policy Institute, said the Trump administration is unlikely to take new applicants without a lower court’s order. “It’s up in the air,” Pierce said...........

Trump and his toadies wouldn't take new applications without the Supreme Court telling them to.  The bigger issue is how quickly Trump will move to comply with whatever directions Robets indicated to make cancelling DACA legal.

Supreme Court rejects mail-in voting for all in Texas during pandemic

For months, Republican Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton has fought expanding mail-in balloting during the pandemic, saying fear of contracting the virus is an insufficient reason.

The U.S. Supreme Court on Friday rejected a request by Texas Democrats to allow all of the state’s 16 million registered voters to vote by mail during the coronavirus pandemic.

The denial is not the end of the ongoing battle over mail-in voting in Texas, but it remains a loss for Democrats who made the emergency ruling request while the original case is tied up at the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals. ..........

Read the article, but does not say the Court's rationale for rejecting the request.   Hope that the 5th Circuit Court would make a decision very soon?

Supreme Court strikes down Louisiana abortion restrictions-

"........The decision — with Chief Justice John Roberts concurring with the court's four-member liberal minority — is the court's first major abortion rights decision since two Trump appointees took the bench, delivering a major win to abortion rights supporters who've been concerned about the court's new ideological makeup and how that would impact the future of abortion access. 

Thursday's 138-page decision, written by Justice Stephen Breyer, found Louisiana's restriction — which requires doctors who provide abortions to have admitting privileges at a nearby hospital — violated precedent set in the 2016 Whole Woman's Health v. Hellerstedt ruling, a case that dealt with a nearly identical regulation in Texas.........

Supreme Court agrees to expedite order on Trump's tax returns

 

"The Supreme Court on Friday granted the Manhattan district attorney's request to expedite its recent decision rejecting President Trump's claims of absolute immunity from a subpoena for eight years of tax returns.

Chief Justice John Roberts ordered the decision to go into effect immediately. The president's legal team did not oppose the move.

The order will allow the remaining proceedings at the district court level to advance more swiftly. It normally takes nearly a month for the Supreme Court's decisions to go into effect. .....

Kavanaugh urged Supreme Court to avoid decisions on Trump finances, abortion: report

..........The justice recommended his colleagues avoid ruling on the merits of the Louisiana law, a case viewed by both pro- and anti-abortion rights groups as the high court’s first chance to revisit the landmark 1973 Roe v. Wade decision since President Trump appointed Kavanaugh and Justice Neil Gorsuch to the court. Under his proposal to return the case to a lower trial court, the law would not have taken immediate effect but the justices would not have put their views on it on record. The court ultimately ruled 5-4 against the law.

Kavanaugh also proposed the court sidestep a ruling on the House subpoena for the president’s financial records, saying a decision would have meant the court taking sides in a political dispute. He would ultimately join six of his fellow justices in ruling that Trump had to comply with the subpoena if the House could justify its request but did not need to immediately do so. .......
