"Court's Recent Miranda Rulings Won't Have Broad Impact": Lawrence Hurley has this article today in The Daily Journal of California.
Posted at 11:00 PM by Howard Bashman

"Plea to stop military trial; Canadian detainee's challenge": Lyle Denniston has this post at "SCOTUSblog."

And in somewhat related coverage, The Miami Herald has an article headlined "Do Guantanamo media limits prevent open trials?"
Posted at 08:40 PM by Howard Bashman

"US Supreme Court asked to halt Guantanamo trial": The Associated Press has this report.
Posted at 06:17 PM by Howard Bashman

"California Supreme Court upholds Prop. 209 affirmative action ban": Howard Mintz of The San Jose Mercury News has an update that begins, "Tackling Proposition 209 for the first time in a decade, the California Supreme Court today left intact the state's ban on affirmative action in public programs. In a 6-1 ruling, the Supreme Court upheld the voter-approved 1996 law, in the process invalidating a 7-year-old San Francisco ordinance designed to aid minority- and women-owned businesses in the contracting process."

And The Associated Press reports that "Calif high court upholds affirmative action ban."

"Key Republican previews case against Kagan": The Associated Press has this report.
Posted at 04:53 PM by Howard Bashman

Pennsylvania law permits a negligent design defect claim against the manufacturer of a dangerous prescription drug, the Superior Court of Pennsylvania has ruled: The Superior Court of Pennsylvania today issued this ruling in an appeal that I argued on behalf of the plaintiff on June 22, 2010.

Unfortunately, a somewhat related appeal that I argued on behalf of different plaintiffs that same day before the very same panel was decided last week in favor of the defendant. Looking on the bright side, the case in which my clients did not prevail raises an interesting question of first impression that the Supreme Court of Pennsylvania may be willing to review.

"Groups seek judge's removal from drilling case": The Associated Press has a report that begins, "Several environmental groups have asked a federal appeals court to disqualify a judge from a lawsuit over the Obama administration's initial six-month moratorium on deep-water oil drilling."
Posted at 03:25 PM by Howard Bashman

"Roberts v. Kagan? Will there be friction between the chief justice and Elena Kagan on the Supreme Court?" Dahlia Lithwick has this jurisprudence essay online at Slate.
Posted at 08:14 AM by Howard Bashman

"Elena Kagan on rare path: first a Supreme Court clerk, later a justice; If confirmed, Elena Kagan will become the sixth former Supreme Court law clerk to become a justice later in life; Much of the work behind the scenes in the Supreme Court is done by these brilliant recent graduates": Warren Richey of The Christian Science Monitor has this report.

And Alexander Bolton of The Hill reports that "Kagan presents a test for the NRA as court confirmation assured."
Posted at 08:04 AM by Howard Bashman

"Corporate campaign fundraising picks up speed; Business and conservative groups see a chance to influence the midterm election because of rising anger at Democratic policies and recent court rulings on political spending": The Los Angeles Times today contains an article that begins, "Driven by increasing anger at Democratic policies and by recent Supreme Court decisions unshackling corporate contributions, business and conservative groups are preparing a flood of campaign money to try to wrest control of Congress from the Democrats."
Posted at 08:00 AM by Howard Bashman

"Appeals court considering UT's use of race in admissions; Three-judge panel in New Orleans to hear oral arguments on Tuesday": Today's edition of The Austin American-Statesman contains an article that begins, "Is the University of Texas violating the law by considering race and ethnicity when it decides whom to admit to its freshman class? That question will be debated Tuesday before a three-judge panel of the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in New Orleans."

And last week, The Daily Texan published articles headlined "Court battle re-examines admittance policy of UT" and "Legal history of using race in admissions adds lawsuit."
