- Ninety-two years ago on Saturday, the Nineteenth Amendment was ratified, guaranteeing that no one would be denied the right to vote because they are a woman.
- Puerto Rican voters rejected two amendments to their constitution, including an amendment that would have eliminated the territory’s guarantee that all accused persons are entitled to bail.
- Todd Peppers explains why, if any Supreme Court law clerks were responsible for the leaks that occurred shortly after the Affordable Care Act case was decided, they violated their ethical obligations even if they did so at the direction of their justice.
- At least two of seven suspects accused of murdering two sheriff’s deputies in Louisiana and wounding two others are tied to a right-wing anti-government movement known as “sovereign citizens.”
- The full Fourth Circuit will hear a case challenging a law requiring anti-abortion “crisis pregnancy centers” to reveal that they do not actually provide medical services. Although the law was struck down by a three-judge panel of the same court, the fact that the entire left-leaning court intends to rehear it suggests that at least part of the law will be upheld.
