SCOTUS: DOMA's Fate in Kennedy's Hands

The woman who brought this lawsuit, Edith Windsor, argues along with most of the gay rights community that DOMA fails because it has no rational basis. In other words, when a supermajority of Democrats and Republicans in both the House and Senate voted for DOMA—and Democrat Bill Clinton signed it—they were literally irrational. They were driven by fear or animus—meaning malicious hostility or even hatred. Mar 27, 2013 8:30 PM PT

Prop 8 Case: Roberts as Swing Vote Again?

The likely swing vote on this issue of “standing” is Chief Justice John Roberts. Kennedy tipped his hand that he might regard the official sponsors of Prop 8—which the California Supreme Court unanimously held are empowered by the California Constitution to defend the measure in court—as meeting the U.S. Constitution’s requirements for the lawsuit to proceed. Roberts, however, didn’t tip his hand one way or the other, so it’s not clear whether there are enough votes to move forward to decide the merits of the case. Mar 26, 2013 5:42 PM PT

George Will, DOMA, and Polygamy

Dr. George Will is a respected social scientist and acclaimed writer, but he’s not a lawyer.

NRA Sues NY Gov. Cuomo on Gun-Control Law

The lawsuit challenges two provisions of Cuomo’s new gun-control law: one that bans a made-up type of firearm some politicians call “assault weapons” (there is no such type of firearm--it’s a collection of various types of guns that look scary but function like ordinary guns), and also the provision that bans ammunition magazines that hold more than seven rounds.
