What’s going on with Munsingwear?
SCOTUS Blog
by SCOTUStalk
8h ago
Share In an essay published in The New York Times this fall, two law professors, Lisa Tucker and Stefanie Lindquist, argued that the Supreme Court is increasingly setting aside significant decisions from the lower courts as if they never happened. The court is invalidating these decisions in brief procedural orders under what’s known as “Munsingwear vacatur.” Amy sits down with Tucker and Lindquist to hear more about the trend. Send us a question about the court at scotustalk@scotusblog.com or leave us a voicemail at (202) 596-2906. Please tell us your first name and where you’re calling from ..read more

SCOTUS Blog
by Kalvis Golde
3d ago
Share The Petitions of the Week column highlights a selection of cert petitions recently filed in the Supreme Court. A list of all petitions we’re watching is available here. Two years ago, the court ruled that medical device maker Arthrex, Inc., was wronged when the government made a final decision on a dispute over one of its patents by a panel of internally appointed officials. The justices held that the Constitution requires reviewability by a more senior patent officer appointed by the president and confirmed by the Senate. This week, we highlight cert petitions that ask the court to con ..read more

No, Ruth Bader Ginsburg did not dissent in Obergefell — and other things ChatGPT gets wrong about the Supreme Court
SCOTUS Blog
by James Romoser
4d ago
Share When ChatGPT, a cutting-edge artificial-intelligence chatbot, launched in November, it captured the attention of the legal community. Some lawyers worried that the program — which can generate eerily human-sounding text in response to complex written prompts — would make them obsolete. Law professors discovered that the bot can pass their exams. One CEO offered $1 million to any Supreme Court litigator willing to let ChatGPT argue their case (a prospect both ethically dubious and physically impossible). Naturally, here at SCOTUSblog, we began to wonder about our own risk of A.I. displac ..read more

A “DIG” on attorney-client privilege: Why the court decided not to decide In re Grand Jury
SCOTUS Blog
by Stephen Gillers
5d ago
Share After the oral argument in In re Grand Jury, the smart money would have predicted either that the court would affirm the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit or dismiss the case as improvidently granted. On Monday, it dismissed. In fact, one might be left wondering why the court agreed to hear the case in the first place. Yet the dismissal – known as a “DIG” – does not mean that the court has lost interest in the issue raised, only that the facts of the case were not the right vehicle for exploring it. The case invited the court to answer a simple but recurrent question: When a cli ..read more

Justices request federal government’s views on Texas and Florida social-media laws
SCOTUS Blog
by Amy Howe
1w ago
Share The Supreme Court on Monday asked the Biden administration for its views on a pair of controversial social-media laws enacted in Texas and Florida. Passed in response to beliefs that social-media platforms were censoring their users, particularly those expressing conservative political views, both states’ laws seek to regulate the content-moderation policies of social-media companies like Facebook and Twitter. The justices asked the solicitor general to weigh in on NetChoice v. Paxton (a pending petition on the Texas law) and NetChoice v. Moody and Moody v. NetChoice (two pending petiti ..read more
