On November 23, for the first time, a constitutional court talked about social media users’ right to be forgotten in the cases of revenge porn. This is what the right is about 👉
If the Supreme Court becomes just another political arena, constitutional rights will cease to function as a check on majority power. We the people — ALL of us — can and must do our part to defend liberty. We won't stop fighting.
Constitutional scholar @AlanDersh explains the chances of the Supreme Court taking Trump’s campaign lawsuits. “If there are 20 or 30 challenged ballots but if the margin of victory is at 80,000 votes, the Supreme Court won’t take that case.”
I had missed this from judge Brann's ruling this weekend: "But even if it were logically possible to hold Pennsylvania’s electoral system both constitutional and unconstitutional at the same time, the Court would not do so.”
Let me be as clear as I can be. Despite what Trump's extreme, right-wing Supreme Court nominee may believe, it is women, not the government, who have the right to control their own bodies. Abortion is a constitutional right — period.
Today the Supreme Court threw up its hands & declared it can’t rein in partisan gerrymandering – can’t protect Americans’ constitutional rights to participate in their democracy equally & choose their representatives. It's a shameful blow to the functioning of our democracy.
I want a Supreme Court that will stand up for civil liberties, constitutional rights, workers' rights, environmental rights, women's rights.
