    It doesn't always have to be about venting. Intelligent political discussion is allowed.

    It's a list of Justices' names. I thought there might be a reason for it. My mistake.

    The Supreme Court’s big ruling on ‘patent trolls’ will rock businesses everywhere

    https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/...=.1a415261b6fa

    I mean it literally — as in where, geographically, the case*can be heard by a court. Until the Supreme Court's ruling this week, patent lawsuits*could be heard all across the country, giving*companies the opportunity to seek out*courts where the odds were tilted in their favor.

    It's a big deal, particularly for smaller companies. The court voted unanimously to say that*patent lawsuits should be tried where the defending company is based, rather than in a court of the plaintiff's choosing.

    “The Supreme Court’s unanimous decision is a significant victory for the software developers who drive the $143 billion app ecosystem, as well as patent holders across the country,” said Morgan Reed, president of ACT | The App Association.

    Three Justices that were born in the 1930's. How many will either die or retire in the next few years? The makeup of the Supreme Court could change drastically. That's a major reason why I couldn't vote for Hillary.

    I think it's a good idea. There could be several cases we might want to discuss as time goes on. Or previous cases.

    It is. I was just worried I'd missed something!

    There might also be another vacancy and appointment.

    Trump appeals travel ban case to Supreme Court

    http://thehill.com/blogs/blog-briefi...-supreme-court

    The administration filed two emergency applications with the Supreme Court justices seeking to block lower level court rulings that had previously halted Trump's March 6 executive order Reuters*reported Thursday. The revised order banned citizens of Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen from entering the country for 90 days while the government implemented a stricter visa screening process.

    This might end up being my favorite thread. I'm a SCOTUS watcher, and this is the best time of year for that as most of the major decisions tend to come down in June.

    Someone speculated as SCOTUS blog the other day that because this case, Masterpiece Cake Shop has been relisted eleven times, we're probably seeing a dissent from a denial of cert, which means the lower court verdict against the shop will stand. Basically, the court will deny to hear the case, but one or more justices may be writing one heck of a dissent arguing that the court should have taken it up.

    The other major religious freedom case this term, Trinity Lutheran v. Comer was also relisted forever when the court was still one justice short, but after Justice Gorsuch was nominated they granted cert in that case. They could have done the same in this case, but they didn't. My guess is if they do deny cert, we'll see a similar case heard by the full court this term or next.
