Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy Announces Retirement

US Supreme Court Approves Trump's Travel Ban

Yes, a man they thought risky and demagogic was in the White House but the other branches of government - Congress and the courts - were providing an effective brake on executive power. "Each of the people on the President's list of potential Supreme Court nominees is highly qualified, with a record of fairly applying the law and adhering to the Constitution as it was originally written and ratified", he said.

U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice Anthony Kennedy arrives for the funeral of fellow justice Antonin Scalia at the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception in Washington, February 20, 2016.

The government provided enough justification for the policy to survive the court challenge, he said: "We express no opinion on the soundness of the policy".

The Supreme Court's ruling will likely prompt the administration to argue that courts should be just as deferential to the president's other immigration policies, so it's not a complete victory for plaintiffs in other suits, said Stephen Yale-Loehr, a professor of immigration law practice at Cornell Law School.

NBA Draft 2018: Lakers and Sixers reportedly trade second-round picks
Nine-time All-Star Chris Paul is certain that LeBron James will be donning a Los Angeles Lakers jersey in the upcoming season. Lastly, with the 47th pick, the Lakers selected Ukrainian guard Sviatoslav Mykhailiuk , who played his college ball at Kansas.

Kennedy has always been considered the swing vote on the court between the liberal and conservative justices. "For a member of the legal profession it is the highest of honors to serve on this Court", Kennedy wrote.

Stephen Colbert admitted there was no way to sugarcoat the day's big news, that Justice Anthony Kennedy has announced he is retiring from the Supreme Court.

Though he was nominated by a Republican president, Kennedy, a California native, also has a strong libertarian streak, and he was the swing vote on the court, casting the deciding vote on the same-sex marriage decision, affirmative action, and Citizens United, among others.

Though the Tuesday ruling on the travel ban mostly impacts immigrants and refugees, CAIR Minnesota Executive Director Jaylani Hussein said that news about the decision alarmed many people in Minnesota, including native-born, non-Muslim residents.

What not to miss on World Cup Day 11
The first Group H match of the day - Japan vs Senegal will start at 8 pm local time, 8:30 pm IST and 4 pm BST. There's very little to separate all four teams in this group, and it should be a fascinating evening.

The president also stated he will pick his next nominee from the list of 25 names he released a year ago, a revision of lists he published during his presidential campaign. He has cast multiple votes both protecting legal abortion and affirming the homosexual agenda, though he has also signaled openness to some abortion restrictions. Trump could add more countries to the list. Conservative activists have already announced their intention to use a more conservative court to overturn the 1973 Roe v. Wade decision legalizing abortion.

Trump told reporters in the Oval Office Wednesday that the same 25 names that were on the list when he chose Neil Gorsuch are up for consideration as Kennedy's replacement.

"I think that, with respect to social issues, that means that the validity of Roe is imperiled and civil rights laws covering LGBT persons are ripe for judicial dismantling", he said in an email to Law & Crime reported.

SCOTUS rules states can collect taxes from online shopping transactions
While this ruling is beneficial to state governments, it stands to have a negative impact on retailers and consumers alike. We asked some vendors of sales-tax services for their advice. "They've been getting an unfair advantage for 20 years".
