#SCOTUS future is already apparent with new justice Barrett casting vote to essentially reverse CJ Roberts' earlier decisions on pandemic.
Justice Amy Coney Barrett cast the pivotal vote to depart from past cases that deferred to state authorities on public-health measures
The justices split 5-4 with new Justice Amy Coney Barrett in the majority. It was the conservative's first publicly discernible vote as a justice.
The Senate just voted to advance one of the most qualified nominees in generations. Judge Barrett’s intellectual brilliance, integrity, and commitment to impartiality are above reproach. Tomorrow, we will vote to confirm the next Associate Justice of the Supreme Court.
CONFIRMED: Amy Coney Barrett will be the 115th Associate Justice of the Supreme Court!
Chief Justice John Roberts said in Shelby County v. Holder that no one doubts discrimination in voting still exists. I asked Judge Barrett whether she agreed with that statement or not. She refused to comment.
