The Supreme Court opens its 2012-2013 term today with a landmark case to decide whether survivors of human rights violations in foreign countries can bring lawsuits against corporations in U.S. courts. The case centers on a lawsuit that accuses the oil giant Shell’s parent company, Royal Dutch Petroleum, of complicity in the murder and torture of Nigerian activists. Some legal analysts are comparing this case, Kiobel v. Royal Dutch Petroleum, to the landmark campaign finance ruling in Citizens United.

Supreme Court Takes a Pass on Mt. Soledad Cross Case

The Supreme Court’s decision lets stand a January ruling by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit, which held that the cross display violates the Establishment Clause of the First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. As the Ninth Circuit explained, “The use of such a distinctively Christian symbol to honor all veterans sends a strong message of endorsement and exclusion. It suggests that the government is so connected to a particular religion that it treats that religion’s symbolism as its own, as universal.

Supreme Court rules juvenile life without parole cruel and unusual

The Supreme Court on Monday limited the use of life terms in prison for murderers under 18, ruling that judges must consider the defendant’s youth and the nature of the crime before putting him behind bars with no hope for parole. In a 5-4 decision, the high court struck down as cruel and unusual punishment the laws in about 28 states that mandated a life term for murderers, including those under age 18. The justices ruled in the cases of two 14-year-olds who were given life terms for their role in a homicide, but their decision goes further. It applies to all those under 18.

Supreme Court Reversed Anti-Citizens United Ruling From Montana

WASHINGTON -- The U.S. Supreme Court on Monday struck down Montana's century-old limits on corporate political spending, putting an end to the state's resistance to Citizens United and effectively expanding that controversial ruling to the state and local elections.

The Supreme Court has refused to hear any new Guantánamo appeals even though half of the men being held were cleared for release five years ago. Critics of Monday’s decision say it leaves the fate of prisoners — many of them long cleared for release — in the hands of a conservative D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals, which has constantly sided with military prosecutors and refused to order the release of any prisoner. The high court also refused to reinstate a lawsuit by former "enemy combatant" José Padilla against former Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld.

The Absurdity of 'Judicial Review' by Ron Paul

Posted April 5th, 2012 by iamodd999
Tags:

The doctrine of judicial review, which is nowhere to be found in the Constitution, has done nothing to defend liberty against excesses by government. This unconstitutional power was usurped by the Supreme Court, says Ron Paul. It is federalism and states’ rights that should protect our liberty, not a godlike Supreme Court.

Why Obama Lawyers couldn’t answer Constitutional Questions

Posted April 2nd, 2012 by ssj12
Tags:

Last week’s historic 3 day Supreme Court debate on Obamacare made one thing abundantly clear. The Obama administration is unable to answer basic constitutional questions and does not want nor consider the fact that there are limits on what the Government is allowed to do. Whether a liberal or conservative justice asked the basic question: If Congress can do this, what can’t it do? Obama’s lawyers had no reasonable answer. Fundamentally, Obama and his administration, do not grasp liberty and freedom and the basis for the American experiment in self-rule.

The Supreme Court unanimously ruled on Tuesday that medical tests that rely on correlations between drug dosages and treatment are not eligible for patent protection.
