Sure, if you want a product past its expiration date.

Better platform than I heard in November. I'm in.

This morning, Neil Gorsuch asked his first questions as a Supreme Court Justice

 

 

Reporting at SCOTUSblog, Amy Howe stresses how strongly Gorsuch displayed his commitment to texualism:

 

Chris Landau was the first attorney... on the receiving end of Gorsuch’s first question as a justice. Exactly what part, Gorsuch wanted to know, of the federal statute at issue provided for the path that Landau was advocating? Landau started to respond by pointing to a Supreme Court case, but he didn’t get far before Gorsuch interrupted him to focus again on what he described as “the plain language” of the statute.
 

A few minutes later, Landau sought to reassure the justices that his client was not asking the Supreme Court to “break new ground” with its ruling. But Gorsuch again seemed skeptical, suggesting that what Landau was in fact asking the justices to do was to “just continue to make it up.”...


Gorsuch [asked Brian Fletcher, the assistant to the U.S. solicitor general... whether it wouldn’t “be a lot easier” if we just followed the plain language of the statute. And when Fletcher started to outline the reasons underlying the government’s position, Gorsuch pressed Fletcher to explain “where” in the statute the government’s proposed rule found support.

 

Thank you President Trump.

A Justice that won't ask "how can deliver a ruling such that the biggest freaks on Phil Donanhue's show would have recoiled in horror..." ?

Since Nixon the GOP loves to send up stealth candidates that appear conservative but end up siding with the liberals their whole tenure.

 

Souter was a brilliant facade.
