Gopal Subramanium and Rohinton Nariman are top lawyers of the country __both were Solicitor Generals of India. now their names are being recommended by the SC collegium for elevation to SC. Hope they would make exceptionally good Judges as well. Among the sitting Judges of US SC, Chief Justice John Roberts before elevation (by former President George Bush Jr) had not occupied any judicial office and he is directly elevated from the bar as the Chief Justice of US Supreme Court. Justice Elena Kagan of US Supreme Court was Dean of Harvard Law School and then Solicitor General (appointed by President Obama) for a short period before being elevated as US SC Judge. she was also not a Judge before being appointed to the highest Court. Both Mr.Subramanium and Mr.R.F.Nariman are comparable to them. Hope they would make us proud. Indian Supreme Court has got wide jurisdiction and many of the specialized matters are directly taken up by SC (by way of statutory appeal from Tribunals/Specialized bodies) without t ...
Thanks to Robert Shepherd: Louis Brandeis was a Justice on the Supreme Court of the United States from 1916 to 1939. He was born in Louisville, Kentucky, to Jewish immigrant parents from Bohemia, who raised him in a secular home. He enrolled at Harvard Law School, graduating at the age of twenty with the highest grade average in the Law School's history. Brandeis settled in Boston where he became a recognized lawyer through his work on progressive social causes. Because of his liberal activism, he was dubbed the “People’s Lawyer.” When Woodrow Wilson appointed him, Republicans fought the nomination bitterly. Justice William O. Douglas wrote, "Brandeis was a militant crusader for social justice whoever his opponent might be. He was dangerous not only because of his brilliance, his arithmetic, his courage. He was dangerous because he was incorruptible. . . [and] the fears of the Establishment were greater because Brandeis was the first Jew to be named to the Court." What a Beacon of Liberalism.
Subject: TX Senator Ted Cruz's father on the present administration. (Bad officials are elected by good citizens who do not vote. George Jean Nathan ...) the video at the end of this message. It's very eye opening. Obama has no liking for Senator Ted Cruz, the least reason of which is because Cruz is Republican. Here are a few other factors: Cruz is academically superior. Cruz graduated *** laude from Princeton. Not the case for Obama. Cruz graduated magna *** laude from Harvard Law School. Not so for Obama. Cruz's mental prowess has been recognized by Allan Dershowitz (who by all accounts is a bigger liberal than Obama) who said that Cruz is one of the most brilliant legal minds that he has ever seen. His actual quote was that "Cruz was off-the-charts brilliant." Not so Obama. Cruz clerked for the Chief Justice of the U. S. Supreme Court, Justice William Renquist, one of the most coveted positions for any young lawyer right out of Law School. Not so Obama. The liberal tin horns in Washington along wi ...
In 2012 Ted Cruz pulled off a stunning 14-point victory in the Texas Republican primary for the U.S. Senate against the state's better-known and better-funded lieutenant governor. He then went on to win the general election in November by 16 points. The Washington Post called his election, "the biggest upset of 2012… a true grassroots victory against very long odds." The senator's background includes experience as the first Hispanic clerk to the Chief Justice of the U.S. Supreme Court, domestic policy advisor to George W. Bush's presidential campaign, and, by his early 30s, Solicitor General of Texas. He authored more than 80 U.S. Supreme Court briefs and made nine oral arguments before the High Court. At Harvard Law School, he was an editor of the Harvard Law Review (like Barack Obama but Cruz got the job without 'Affirmative Action'), and Constitutional Lawyer Alan Dershowitz, who taught Cruz at Harvard, said in July 2013 that Cruz was "among the smartest students I've ever had." Since arriving in the ...
The Chairman John Conyers Judiciary Braintrust “Protecting the Right to Vote” Panel at the 43rd Congressional Black Caucus Foundation Annual Legislative Conference Today, September 20, 2013, 1-3pm Washington Convention Center, Room 143-A Through its opinion in Shelby County v. Holder, the Supreme Court substantially altered the web of laws protecting the voting rights of the African-American Community. While the federal government still retains formidable authority under the Voting Rights Act, Congress will be required to re-examine federal authority under Section 5 of the Act. When combined with the challenges raised by voter suppression statutes passed by the states during prior to the 2012 elections, important concerns exists about the state of the law and whether the Court has turned back the clock. This Braintrust will explore the impact of the Shelby County decision and how Congress can act to restore Voting Rights Act authority and continue to protect voter from evolving discrimination.

We have a TRAITOR on the supreme court !! * Elena Kagan’s views render her the first Supreme Court Justice who actively favors the introduction of Sharia Law into national Constitutions and legal systems. It’s unprecedented in American History. We now have a liberal, pro-Sharia justice sitting on the highest court in the land. And is it any wonder? After all, as Obama’s Solicitor General, it was Kagan who blocked as many as nine lawsuits from being heard by the Supreme Court. Although the nine cases listed on the High Court’s docket had nothing to do with Obama’s eligibility issues, there is no arguing Kagan’s advocacy for Islamic rule and Sharia Law as evidenced below. What do you want to bet that she refuses to recuse herself on any Sharia-related decision and instead leads the charge to legitimize Sharia Law in America? Christine Brim of the Center for Security Policy summarized Kagans’ 2003-2009 career as Dean of Harvard Law School in the following five points. They tell the story of Ele ...

Edward Terry Sanford (July 23, 1865 – March 8, 1930) American jurist who served as an Associate Justice on the United States Supreme Court from 1923 until his death in 1930. Prior to his nomination to the High Court, Sanford served as an Assistant Attorney General under President Theodore Roosevelt from 1905 to 1907, and as a federal district court judge from 1908 to 1923. Sanford is typically viewed as a conservative justice, favoring strict adherence to antitrust laws, and often voted with his mentor, Chief Justice William Howard Taft. A graduate of Harvard Law School, Sanford practiced law in his hometown of Knoxville, Tennessee, during the 1890s and early 1900s (decade). As Assistant Attorney General, he rose to national prominence as lead prosecutor during the high-profile trial of Joseph Shipp in 1907, which to date is the only criminal trial conducted by the Supreme Court. Sanford's most lasting impact on American law is arguably his majority opinion in the landmark case, Gitlow v. New York (1925 ...

Black History Month Day 20- Charles Hamilton Houston civil-rights attorney, 1895-1950. Houston, a powerful advocate of civil rights, helped gain ground for the movement by taking the fight to the court system. Houston earned his A.B. from Amherst College at age 19 and then began teaching English at Howard University. He joined the Army during World War I, serving in a segregated unit of the American Expeditionary Forces. In 1919 Houston entered Harvard Law School, where he served as the first black editor of the Harvard Law Review. He later joined the faculty at Howard University and began preparing young black lawyers, including Thurgood Marshall, to argue cases against discrimination. Houston himself argued a number of cases before the Supreme Court, serving as special counsel to the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) from 1935 to 1940.
Charles Hamilton Houston conceived of and led the legal strategy leading to the end of legalized racial segregation in the United States. He and those he taught and mentored laid the legal groundwork through thought and action that ultimately led to 1954 U.S. Supreme Court decision in Brown v. Board of Education that made racial segregation in public primary and secondary schools unconstitutional. He died four years before full fruition of his work to end "separate but equal" as a valid constitutional principle. Houston not only participated in effecting the change, but was the inspiration and mentor to Thurgood Marshall, James Nabrit, Spottswood Robinson, A. Leon Higginbotham, Robert Carter, William Hastie and many others who carried on the battle and remains an inspiration to those working for social justice today. Houston completed high school at the age of 15 and graduated from as one of six valedictorians from Amherst College in Massachusetts in 1915. He then taught at Howard University in Washington ...

Adebayo Ogunlesi, 56, is the chairman and managing partner, Global Infrastructure Partners (GIP), an independent investment fund based in New York City with worldwide stake in infrastructure assets, has been reported to be the new owner of the London Gatwick Airport.

Local News Brown, Warren seek momentum off 2nd Senate debate Tuesday, October 02, 2012 Associated Press Republican U.S. Sen. Scott Brown and his Democratic challenger Elizabeth Warren are both hoping to use their second televised debate to give their campaigns a boost among voters with Election Day just five weeks away. During the sometimes testy match-up Monday, the two jousted on everything from immigration reform and Afghanistan to jobs and the U.S. Supreme Court. The one-hour contest included several sharp exchanges between Brown and Warren, a Harvard Law School professor. "Excuse me, I'm not a student in your classroom, let me respond," Brown said to Warren at one point as the candidates talked over each other while sparring over a jobs bill. Warren accused Brown of "making things up" when he questioned her past legal work on behalf of corporations in cases involving asbestos victims and chided him for claiming to be one of the most bipartisan senators in Washington. Brown began the debate, moderated ...
Michelle Obama graduated from Harvard Law School in 1988, and was admitted as a lawyer by the Supreme Court of Illinois on May 12, 1989. Following graduation, she joined Sidley Austin, a corporate Law Firm in Chicago. But a few years later, in 1994, while working for the Public Allies project in Chicago, Obama voluntarily surrounded her law license under clouded circumstances.

In a disturbing revelation for a Supreme Court nominee, Elena Kagan took millions of dollars from the Saudis as dean of Harvard Law School and a chunk of it reportedly came from 9/11 mastermind Osama bin Laden.
A Harvard Law School professor's idea on campaign finance reform took center stage at a Senate subcommittee hearing July 24, when he suggested holding "citizen conventions" to craft a constitutional amendment in response to the Supreme Court's decision in Citizens United v. Federal Election Commissi...
In his quest to make conservatives comfortable, Obama hasn’t brought forth any assertive policy, executive order or bold “bully pulpit” announcement that directly impacts the black community. The courage with which the Obama White House has stood up for the *** community, women’s rights groups and Latinos has yet to be matched for African Americans, who have been far more loyal than any of those groups. Even the two Supreme Court picks the president had in his possession went to a Latino woman and a white woman from Harvard with a racially-exclusive hiring record (Elena Kagan didn’t hire or promote one single black, latino or native American tenure track professor during her entire six year term as dean at Harvard Law School). Dorothy Height, before she died, told President Obama that it is sad that after existing for two centuries, the Supreme Court has yet to have an African American woman….at the same time, they’ve had dozens of Harvard graduates like Obama.
The President just announced that he nominates Elena Kagan, current Solicitor General, to the Supreme Court bench vacated by John Paul Stevens. Kagan is a liberal and the former dean of Harvard Law School. She has been criticized because, as dean, she banned Army recruiters on the university’s campus based on her position on homosexual and *** rights and her disagreement with the military’s position. She recently came into the spotlight after national media reported that she is a *** and would be the first on the Supreme Court if appointed. At age 50, she would be a young appointment and most likely be on the Court for years to come. The next phase of the nomination process takes Kagan’s nomination to the Senate Judiciary Committee, on which Texas Senator John Cornyn sits. If she passes the committee, the final step takes her nomination before the full Senate for a vote.President Nominates Elena Kagan to Supreme Court
