Twitter Web App : Need a refresher on 'cert before judgment' practice at SCOTUS? We've got you covered.

Steve Vladeck examined the practice (among other types of extraordinary relief) in 2018: scotusblog.com/2018/12/power-…

Twitter Web App : NOTICE: On Wednesday, September 29 at 10:00 AM ET, the Senate Judiciary Committee will hold a hearing entitled “Texas’s Unconstitutional Abortion Ban and the Role of the Shadow Docket” to examine the consequences of S.B. 8 and the shadow docket scheme that enabled it.

Twitter for iPhone : It would be crazy enough to argue that a sitting President is somehow exempt from ordinary contract law principles simply because he’s the President.

Twitter Web App : Except that the federal government is still arguing (and surely will *continue* to argue) exactly the opposite in court — in order to defend the ongoing military detention of 27 of the 39 detainees (the other 12 are in the military commissions).

They can't both be right.
