Supreme Court ends term without retirement

01 July, 2018, 01:03 | Author: Grady King
  • U.S. Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy prepares to testify before the House Financial Services and General Government Subcommittee on Capitol Hill

However, he voted with the majority to uphold women's abortion rights established in the Roe v. Wade decision, and he cast the deciding vote in striking down the Defense of Marriage Act, which defined marriage as between a man and a woman.

In a statement, the White House said that "Justice Kennedy has been a tireless voice for individual rights and the Founders' enduring vision of limited government".

"This is the moment conservative women have been waiting for - the chance to return justice and constitutional limits to the nation's highest court", said Penny Nance, the president of Concerned Women for America.

The president said he would review an existing list of 25 candidates for the opening.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., has committed to confirming a nominee in the fall, which the Republican-controlled Senate should be able to do if McConnell can hold his razor-thin majority together. "No matter how I vote there are going to be people who are furious at me", Collins told POLITICO.

USA charges hundreds in healthcare fraud, opioid crackdown
More than 42,000 Americans died from opioid overdoses in 2016, according to the latest numbers from the U.S. They are being charged for their roles in prescribing and distributing addictive painkillers.

But it's just as likely that Trump nominates someone more aligned with the other conservatives on criminal justice issues.

Karen Tumlin, of the pro-immigration National Immigration Law Center, said that "a decision like this does shake one's belief", and that she and the rest of the organization "will turn to continuing a longer fight for justice".

She explained that how President Trump pledged during his election campaign to ban Muslims, which the then enforced through an executive order following his assumption of office after a stunning victory against rival Democrat and former First Lady Hillary Clinton.

In the wise words of Maya Angelou, "When someone shows you who they are, believe them the first time". Because the Supreme Court has a conservative majority, Kennedy's vote was precious to progressive causes.

Trump said he would interview six to seven candidates in total.

Pharmacy stocks are getting slammed after Amazon buys PillPack (AMZN, WBA)
After months of speculation that it would get into the pharmacy business, online retailer Amazon is buying a pharmacy company. The startup has raised upwards of $120 million in funding from backers including TechStars, Menlo Ventures, and Accel.

Kennedy's retirement is likely to elevate the issue of the Supreme Court in the November 6 midterm elections, in which Democrats are seeking to wrest the House and Senate from Republican control.

He was often referred to as the "swing vote" between the four more liberal and four more reliably conservative justices now presiding over the court. "At a minimum, we have to make sure that we vet people coming into the country", the Republican president said, referring in a statement to "this era of worldwide terrorism and extremist movements bent on harming innocent civilians".

Manchin says he's "pro-life, but I know how that divides our country immediately, divides everyone". Trump said his choice will come from a list of possible nominees that he put out during his campaign and updated last fall.

Kennedy's departure at the end of July will give Trump the opportunity to appoint his second justice to the nine-seat bench, which exerts a deep and far-reaching influence on American life. He's been a great justice of the Supreme Court. "Judges, and particularly the Supreme Court, have been a resounding success of this administration". "We shouldn't vote on confirmation until they have voted at the ballot box".
