Grandparents Win Reprieve From Trump Travel Ban in Federal Court

The Supreme Court did not specify which individuals or entities would qualify as close relations. However, the State Department said that they would include spouses, parents, parents-in-law, children, sons- and daughters-in-law, fiancés and siblings of those already in the United States. They would not include grandparents, grandchildren, uncles, aunts, nephews, nieces, cousins, brothers- and sisters-in-law. It also decided that a resettlement agency’s relationship to those it planned to settle in the United States would not circumvent the ban.PhotoJudge Derrick K. Watson of Federal District Court in Honolulu.Credit George F. Lee/The Star-Advertiser, via Associated PressHawaii challenged the administration’s interpretation of what constitutes a close relationship. […]

Trump Rules: Neomi Rao, the Scholar Who Will Help Lead Trump’s Regulatory Assault

The office, created during the Carter administration, approves government data collections and determines whether agencies have sufficiently addressed problems during rule-making. In the end, the administrator accepts regulations or sends them back to be reworked, a decision that can expedite rules or effectively neutralize them by imposing extensive delays.Continue reading the main storyMs. Rao, 44, who has served in all three branches of the federal government, brings to the position knowledge of Washington, a lengthy Republican contacts list and scholarly credentials from the ideologically charged field of regulatory study.She is the founder of the Center for the Study of the Administrative State at George Mason, which is affiliated with the law school and has been a beneficiary of the donation from the Charles Koch Foundation. Ms. Rao started the center two years ago at a time of growing scholarly intrigue about the regulatory process and the authority of federal agencies to set and enforce rules, a section of the law that rose to prominence during the New Deal era.Regulatory decisions under President Barack Obama, who was among the most prolific authors of major regulations in presidential history, heightened the interest among conservative academics, who questioned whether agencies had overstepped their constitutional bounds.Ms. Rao was an easy pick for Republicans for the White House role, but she also won the backing of a bipartisan group of eight former administrators of the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs.“I have a lot of concerns about what this administration is going to do in regulatory areas,” said one of them, John Spotila, who led the office during the Clinton administration. But, he said, “I don’t start with the conviction that Neomi is bad, and anybody Trump picks is going to be horrible and we are doomed.”He added, “Maybe Neomi will surprise us.”Even before Ms. Rao begins, the regulatory rollback is well underway. Mr. Trump has issued a series of executive orders mandating a reduction of regulatory burdens on everyone from bankers and energy companies to small businesses and farmers. […]

DOJ Forces Hobby Lobby To Return Artifacts Taken From Iraq

The United States filed a civil complaint Wednesday calling on Hobby Lobby to forfeit thousands of ancient Iraqi artifacts that were smuggled into the United States through dealers in Israel and the United Arab Emirates and shipped to its stores here beginning in 2009 labelled as “ceramics” and “samples.” The company has agreed to return return 5,500 artifacts and pay $3 million to resolve the civil action. Hobby Lobby did not attempt to verify the legal custodian or origin of the 5,513 of the artifacts at any point, according to the suit. The Green family, which owns Hobby Lobby, had been under federal investigation for possible illicit importation since 2011, as first reported in The Daily Beast. The company is famous for winning a landmark Supreme Court case in which they argued companies should not be required to provide contraception for employees under the Affordable Care Act if it does not align with their religious beliefs.

The Right and Left React to Medicaid Cuts, the Travel Ban and More

Mr. Benson points out that under the Republican plan, states would once again be able to concentrate government dollars to the poorest people and make Medicaid “fiscally sustainable.” He goes on to say that, under the Affordable Care Act, life expectancy has decreased. If Republicans trafficked in the “same brand of ugly, motive-impugning hysteria” as the Democrats, he argues, they would try to establish a causal relationship between the Affordable Care Act and rising mortality rates.

States Must Aid Some Church Programs, Justices Rule

Justice Sonia Sotomayor summarized her dissent from the bench, an indication of deep disagreement.“This case is about nothing less than the relationship between religious institutions and the civil government — that is, between church and state,” Justice Sotomayor wrote in her dissent, which was joined by Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. “The court today profoundly changes that relationship by holding, for the first time, that the Constitution requires the government to provide public funds directly to a church.”Continue reading the main storyThe Missouri Constitution bars spending public money “directly or indirectly, in aid of any church,” and the state Supreme Court has called for “a very high wall between church and state.” Thirty-eight other states have similar provisions.The Missouri recycling program was not available to all applicants.

Justices Strike Down Law Banning Disparaging Trademarks

On the other hand, the Supreme Court has said that the First Amendment falls out of the analysis when the government is not acting as a censor, but is merely choosing what speech to adopt or support. In 2015, in a 5-to-4 decision in Walker v. Sons of Confederate Veterans, the court ruled that Texas could refuse to allow specialty license plates bearing the Confederate battle flag because the plates were the government’s speech and were thus immune from attacks on First Amendment grounds.Continue reading the main storyThe Slants said they did not intend to disparage anyone. Instead, they said, they sought to adopt and reform a disparaging term about Asians, much as some gay people have embraced the term “queer.”The government has applied the law inconsistently when faced with trademarks based on ethnic slurs. It has, for instance, both registered and rejected trademarks for the terms “Heeb,” “Dago,” “Injun” and “Squaw.”In the Redskins case, the trademark office registered the team’s trademarks in 1967, 1974, 1978 and 1990. In 2014, though, it reversed course and canceled six registrations, saying they disparaged Native Americans.The team lost before a trial judge in Virginia and appealed to the United States Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit, also in Virginia. The appeals court put the case aside while the Supreme Court considered the Slants case, Matal v. Tam, No. […]
