While critics may say that Supreme Court reform that takes place in the political sphere undermines judicial independence, Gertner and Tribe got it right: “Far worse are the dangers that flow from ignoring the court’s real problems.”

" @LaliMadduri of the Elias Law Group in Washington, D.C., said the Kansas judicial branch, as a co-equal branch of government, had the power to review and, if necessary, strike down acts of the Legislature that violated the constitution."

I am not a securities lawyer, but can someone explain how Twitter's board doesn't have an obligation to take some type of action to prevent Musk from damaging the company and then bailing out from buying it?

It has been nearly 20 years since the @FEC has won a significant case before the US Supreme Court.

The newly proposed New York map is pretty close to a best case outcome for Democrats, with just five Trump districts (v. four on the previously enacted map). Many competitive Biden-tilting CDs, but all voted more for Biden than nation as a whole.

The Court's reasoning would mean that a defeated campaign could raise unlimited donations to pay off campaign debt. (while a winning candidate could only do so within FEC limits).

If that is correct, it is much bigger news than the repayment issue directly before the court (i.e., whether Cruz could use contributions after the election to repay a loan he made to the campaign.

Did the Supreme Court just strike down contribution limits to losing campaigns? "The Government does not provide any anticorruption rationale to explain why post-election contributions to those candidates should be restricted."

At a meeting in Atlanta last week, the @NewGAProject 's chief legal officer, Aklima Khondoker, trained lawyers volunteering to help voters navigate the new law... The pro-bono lawyers will escalate cases for potential litigation to the Elias Law Group."

We fight in court to protect voting rights and prevent election subversion. That is why I say that the future of our democracy is on the docket.

What is the optimistic case for US democracy? Like, let’s assume that Republicans win the White House and Congress in 2024. What is the case that the United States will again have competitive national elections in my lifetime?
