"The Conscience of a Conservative: The lifelong Republican who argued Bush v. Gore before the Supreme Court--and won--goes to court this week to overturn California's ban on gay marriage. Huh?" This article will appear in the January 18, 2010 issue of Newsweek.

And David G. Savage of The Los Angeles Times has a news update headlined "Lawyers for Prop. 8 file high court appeal to ban YouTube video of trial; The federal trial on the constitutionality of the measure beginning Monday has 'the potential to become a media circus,' an attorney says in an emergency appeal to Supreme Court Justice Kennedy."

"This case presents one issue on appeal: whether the federal regulatory regime governing pharmaceuticals preempts state-law failure-to-warn claims against manufacturers of generic drugs." So begins a ruling that the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit issued yesterday.

Agreeing with a recent Eighth Circuit ruling that I previously covered here, the Fifth Circuit ruled yesterday that "[b]ecause state imposition of duties to warn on generic drug manufacturers neither renders compliance with federal regulation impossible nor obstructs the goals of that regulation, we AFFIRM the district court's finding that Demahy's state-law failure-to-warn claims are not preempted."

"High Court ruling throws sand into wheels of justice": Today's edition of The Virginian-Pilot contains an article that begins, "U.S. Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia predicted that the 'sky will not fall' with a decision more than six months ago mandating that lab analysts testify in person to the validity of drug tests and alcohol screenings."

And at "SCOTUSblog," Lyle Denniston previews the oral argument in a post titled "A limit on Confrontation rights?"

Posted at 10:48 AM by Howard Bashman

Posted at 10:45 AM by Howard Bashman


"Melvin lets loose with call for judicial reform": Today's edition of The Pittsburgh Tribune-Review contains an article that begins, "Sworn in Friday as a Supreme Court justice, Joan Orie Melvin pledged to make it her mission to 'remove the stealth nature of the judiciary' and called for specific reforms of the state court system."
Posted at 10:38 AM by Howard Bashman
