US court rules for Pom Wonderful over Coke Washington: The US Supreme Court today sided with juice maker Pom Wonderful in its long-running false advertising dispute with Coca Cola, a decision that could open the door to more litigation against food makers for deceptive labelling. The justices ruled 8-0 that Pom can go forward with a lawsuit alleging the label on a "Pomegranate Blueberry" beverage offered by Coke's Minute Maid unit is misleading because 99 per cent of the drink consists of apple and grape juice. Lower courts had ruled in favour of Coke because the label conforms to Food and Drug Administration laws and regulations. But the Supreme Court reversed, finding that the juice label may technically comply with FDA rules but still be misleading to consumers for different reasons. Writing for the court, Justice Anthony Kennedy said federal FDA laws and trademark laws complement each other in the regulation of misleading labels. He said it is unlikely Congress intended FDA law to preclude all tradema ...
Nothing new in Florida laws . WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The U.S. Supreme Court on Tuesday threw out a death sentence for a Florida man in a decision that found the state's method for assessing whether defendants are mentally disabled was unconstitutional. The court ruled on a 5-4 vote, with Justice Anthony Kennedy writing the majority opinion, that death row inmate Freddie Lee Hall should have another chance to show he should not be executed. Florida had initially determined that convicted murderer Hall was mentally disabled in 1992, but later found him competent after he scored 71 on an IQ test, the minimum under Florida law. The court found that the Florida process was unlawful under the Eighth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, which bans cruel and unusual punishment
The following is an exceptionally good article on the "Supreme Court" FILE This column by Ryan W. McMaken originally appeared on the Ludwig von Mises Institute website on May 13. The Supreme Court’s recent decision on prayer at government meetings reminds me that Supreme Court “season” is upon us. And for the next two months or so, we can expect to see the court decide on a variety of cases that can have profound impacts on the lives of citizens and non-citizens alike. The court’s decision in Town of Greece vs. Galloway has produced a lot of commentary on both sides, with much discussion about the dynamics between justices, and how Justice Anthony Kennedy must have been in a pro-prayer mood that day, since his decisions appear to be made on a variety of unknowable whims. Nearly all of this commentary contains the assumption that it is perfectly normal, and probably laudable, that the Supreme Court has the power to decide the legality of virtually everything under the sun, from the death penalty to ...
Throughout the debate over the HHS mandate, the mandate’s supporters have depicted its opponents as alarmists who exaggerate the mandate’s impact. Conveniently overlooking sterilization and abortion-inducing drugs, they ask since only Catholics care about contraception, why should Protestants oppose the mandate? Well, aside from a little issue of religious freedom, recent events in Washington State show us why. During oral arguments in the Hobby Lobby case, Justice Anthony Kennedy told Solicitor General Donald Verrilli, who was defending the mandate, that, under Verrilli's view, “a for-profit corporation could be forced to pay for abortions." A surprised Verrilli replied “you're right," and then dismissed the concern saying that there "is no law like that on the books." Well, there soon may be. In Washington State, HB 2148 would require health plans to “provide coverage for maternity care or services to provide a covered person with substantially equivalent coverage to permit the voluntary termi ...

The United States Supreme Court upheld prayers in public meetings as constitutional under the First Amendment.

My hometown: Sacramento, Ca. celebrating a local civil rights hero. Marshall D. Bailey Nat Colley SACRAMENTO – The Black History Month documentary, “The Time is Now: The Civic Life of Sacramento’s Nathaniel S. Colley” will air at 7:00 p.m., Feb. 20, on KVIE. The documentary examines the life of Sacramento’s first practicing African American attorney, who spent 50 years shaping the course of American history. Colley’s pursuit of civil rights and education brought Colley together with the likes of President John F. Kennedy, Gov. Edmund “Pat” Brown, and Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy. It was through Colley’s efforts that the court ruled that “mere receipt of federal housing benefits” prohibits racial discrimination in the sale of private housing. He also successfully argued and had the courts require all financial institutions to pay homeowners on impounded and loan trust accounts.

Wall Street Journal Letters The Feds, the Supremes, Same-Sex Marriage and Utah It is a shame Justice Kennedy had not read, or perhaps understood, the Court's 1885 Murphy v. Ramsey decision. Jan. 26, 2014 In "Utah's Marriage Battles and the Ghost of Brigham Young" (Cross Country, Jan. 18), Seth Lipsky remarks on the irony of the Dec. 20 decision of a U.S. district judge in overturning Utah's ban on same-sex marriage, while another federal judge struck down an essential part of its ban on polygamy-this done to a state that had to outlaw polygamy to enter the union. If same-sex marriage is OK, what could be wrong with polygamy? This is taking place in the backwash of June's Supreme Court decision in U.S. v. Windsor, which found the Defense of Marriage Act unconstitutional because it defined marriage for federal purposes as one man and one woman. Justice Anthony Kennedy objected that DOMA served "no legitimate purpose" but only had the "purpose and effect to disparage and to injure those" in same-sex marriage ...
ARE THE UNIONS IN TROUBLE? WHAT WILL Justice Antonin Scalia DO? That was the question courtroom observers were asking Tuesday when a potentially pivotal labor case was argued before the U.S. Supreme Court. At issue was whether Pam Harris and other home care workers like her should be forced to pay money to a union they don’t want to belong to. Harris, of Lake County, is caring for her 25-year-old disabled son, Josh, and receiving assistance from the state of Illinois to do so. Gov. Pat Quinn issued an executive order designating Harris and other homecare workers as “state employees” for the purpose of joining a union. Service Employees International Union, a political ally of the governor’s, then began trying to organize the workers. “I think that there's an unhealthy relationship between elected officials and public-sector unions,” Harris told Illinois News Network last week. While the segment of workers Harris is a part of was affected by an executive order issued by Quinn, Rod Blagojevich . ...
I just got an email from Diane Black in which she tells me that she agrees that corporations are people with rights and can give all the money they want to any campaign... Dear Dr. Roy, Thank you for contacting me concerning the Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission Supreme Court case. I appreciate you taking the time to express your thoughts on this issue. In 2010, the Supreme Court ruled that the government may not prohibit independent political expenditures by corporations or unions in federal elections. In the opinion for the majority, Associate Justice Anthony Kennedy stated that "by definition, an independent expenditure is political speech presented to the electorate that is not coordinated with the candidate." Therefore, how an individual chooses to spend his or her money is a form of speech and is protected by the First Amendment. On June 25, 2012, the Supreme Court reaffirmed this decision in American Tradition Partnership, Inc. v. Bullock . This ruling struck down Montana's ...
High court weighs ‘radical’ change for unions Published by AP January 21, 2014 The Supreme Court on Tuesday weighed what one justice described as a "radical" change in the way labor unions force workers to pay them. Though the case has flown somewhat under the radar, the arguments before the high court underscored the potential impact of the dispute. The justices posed tough questions to both sides, without giving a clear indication as to which way they might rule. But they repeatedly stressed that a ruling against the unions here would be significant. "You're essentially destroying not just the ... shop, but you're destroying the ability of the union to get money even from the people who don't agree with what it's doing," Justice Antonin Scalia told the plaintiff's attorney. At issue are the complaints of home health care workers in Illinois, who object to having to pay "fair share fees" to compensate the union for its work. The workers say the fees violate the First Amendment by compelling them to . ...
A panel of three federal judges, frustrated with California’s failed five-year effort to sufficiently reduce prison overcrowding, said they will draw up their own solution within a month.The federal courts have jousted with the state over unsafe and unhealthy conditions they say violate prisoners’ constitutional rights. The federal government has been in charge of California prison healthcare since 2005 and overcrowding since 2009. The takeover followed years of prison horror stories, frequent inmate deaths, severe overcrowding, deficient health care, defiant mismanagement and, in the end, lawsuits.U.S. District Judges Lawrence K. Karlton and Thelton E. Henderson and U.S. 9th Circuit Court Judge Stephen Reinhardt concluded Monday that months of talks between the state and lawyers representing prisoners were going nowhere. The judges want California prisons, which now hold 118,435 inmates, to shed 6,271 of them and get within 137.5% of design capacity for the state’s 34 facilities.The Brown administr ...
Less buffer more free speech Supreme Court | After arguments Wednesday, the Supreme Court seems set to roll back buffer zones around abortion centers By EMILY BELZ WORLD Magazine Posted Jan. 15, 2014, 04:10 p.m. “A woman is approaching the door of a clinic, and she enters the zone. Two other women approach her. One is an employee of the facility, the other is not. The first who is an employee of the facility says, ‘Good morning. This is a safe facility.’ The other one who’s not an employee says, ‘Good morning, this is not a safe facility.’ Now, under this statute, the first one has not committed a crime. The second one has committed a crime. And the only difference between the two is that they’ve expressed a different viewpoint.” Justice Alito... Read on Thirteen years ago, the Supreme Court upheld a Colorado law that created an 8-foot buffer zone around any person who didn’t want to be approached while entering an abortion center. Justice Anthony Kennedy dissented from that ruling, sayi ...
It's an OUTRAGE! Friends, did you know that in my home state of Massachusetts (home to the "Freedom Trail") peaceful believers in Jesus Christ are not allowed to stand directly outside the baby-killing places to share the gospel of life & eternity? How is it possible that the state that is known as the "Cradle of Liberty" & the home of the "Freedom Trail" restricts freedom of religious speech by prohibiting pro-active Christians who want to prevent infant sacrifice & offer mothers help in Jesus' Name from being within 35-foot of every abortuary in Mass? Please pray as the Supreme Court votes to strike down the unconstitutional restriction of lawful (FREE) speech outside the killing places of Massachusetts. Justice Anthony Kennedy notes: "In speech cases, when you address one problem, you have a duty to protect speech that's lawful".

“The appearance of influence or access, furthermore, will NOT cause the electorate to lose faith in our democracy.” -Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy, Citizens United v. FEC Maybe if such quotes from Supreme Court decisions and legislation were run as PSA's 24/7, we would finally wake up from the nightmare of our democracy dissolving? I am ready for DIRECT DEMOCRACY!
"We now conclude that independent expenditures, including those made by corporations, do not give rise to corruption or the appearance of corruption." _ Justice Anthony Kennedy, (Citizens United) _
You were warned! Dear Friends, When Christians warned people that polygamy would be accepted if *** marriage was accepted, they were scoffed at; but here it is. We see that God intended one man for one woman for life from what He set up in the Garden of Eden (Genesis 2:24) before sin came into the world. Polygamy began in the ungodly line of Cain (Genesis 4:19-24) and was tolerated by God during the Old Testament period, just as he tolerated divorce, because of the hardness of men's hearts, but from the beginning it was not so. Now we have gone backward as we slip further and further away from God's plan and further and further into moral chaos. May God stir us up to lead people to a real faith in Christ, a faith that proves its reality by obedience! God bless you. Because of Calvary, John Janney Genesis 1:18-24 English Standard Version (ESV) 18 to rule over the day and over the night, and to separate the light from the darkness. And God saw that it was good. 19 And there was evening and there was morning ...
Moral Mayhem Multiplies - Now, It's Polygamy's Turn By: Albert Mohler As most Americans were thinking thoughts of Christmas cheer, a federal judge in Utah dropped a bomb on the institution of marriage, striking down the most crucial sections of the Utah statute outlawing polygamy. Last Friday, Judge Clark Waddoups of the United States District Court in Utah ruled that Utah’s anti-polygamy law is unconstitutional, violating the free exercise clause of the First Amendment as well as the guarantee of due process. In one sense, the decision was almost inevitable, given the trajectory of both the culture and the federal courts. On the other hand, the sheer shock of the decision serves as an alarm: marriage is being utterly redefined before our eyes, and in the span of a single generation. Judge Waddoups ruled that Utah’s law against consensual adult cohabitation among multiple partners violated the Constitution’s free exercise clause, but a main point was that opposition to polygamy did not advance a com ...
Making lives easier for LGBT families Posted on 06 Dec 2013 at 9:10am The new executive director of Family Equality Council stops in Dallas for fundraiser and calls his group the LGBT voice for families MODERN FAMILY | Gabriel Blau, right, the new executive director of Family Equality Council is pictured with his husband, Dylan, and son Elijah. David Taffet | News Editor Gabriel Blau calls his work at Family Equality Council personal. In 2008, he and his husband adopted a child, making them one of the three million LGBT parents in this country. Six million children of all ages have LGBT parents, Blau said. Family Equality Council supports those families with advocacy work to ensure all families are respected. Blau has been in his position as executive director for just three months and said he was attracted to the organization because of what he called its groundbreaking work. He will be in Dallas on Dec. 6 for a fundraiser at a private home. Blau described Family Equality Council as the LGBT voice fo ...

The problem with Obamacare isn't slow moving servers or poorly written computer code. The problem isn't a glitch. It is a fundamental misunderstanding about the nature of health care delivery and the nature of fairness. Obamacare is a redistribution scheme that is significantly raising the cost of insurance for millions of Americans. It uses that money to provide subsidized health care to other Americans who are largely Obama voters. Moreover, in its thousands of pages of legislation and regulations, it pushes a leftist agenda forcing religious institutions to subsidize procedures they find morally objectionable. The outcome of this legal battle, and the future of religious liberty in America, will largely depend on moderate swing Justice Anthony Kennedy. We are only ten months into Obama's second term, and yet that is how close we are to losing a fundamental guarantee of religious liberty. And the left's battering ram is Obamacare.

*** *** couples flock to Calif. courts to wed Associated Press - 1 hr ago Jubilant *** and *** couples flocked to city halls and county courthouses across California on Monday to wed with pets, siblings and kids in tow as same-sex marriages resumed across the state following a five-year legal hiatus. Monday was the first chance for all but a handful of the state's same-sex couples to wed since 2008, when about 18,000 marriages went forward during a brief legal window before a voter-approved ban. Last week, the U.S. Supreme Court declined to rule on the constitutional merits of that ban — called Proposition 8 — and a lower court on Friday said same-sex marriages could resume. On Sunday, Justice Anthony Kennedy rejected a last-ditch appeal. While a few lucky couples were able to score marriage licenses before government offices closed and wed late Friday and scores of others tied the knot at San Francisco City Hall over the weekend, Monday was the day many couples had been awaiting for years. T ...

BREAKING: Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy has denied request from Prop 8 supporters to halt same-sex marriages
EDITORIAL Needless, thoughtless, damaging THIS WEEK THE U.S. Supreme Court inserted itself into the heart of America’s contentious and evolving national conversation about the nature of marriage. But instead of offering a thoughtful framework for the accommodation of the complex moral issues and the many legitimately engaged voices involved in that conversation, Justice Anthony Kennedy, writ­ing on behalf of five justices, borrowed the phraseology of constitutional law to issue a polemical ultimatum against those who cherish how tra­ditional marriage unites men and women for the benefit of children. Kennedy’s decision in Wind­sor v. United States, a chal­lenge to the federal Defense of Marriage Act, was needless, thoughtless and damaging. Needless because the court should not have even reached the merits of the so-called case before it; thoughtless because it failed to provide a recogniz­able rationale for its holding; and damaging because it has the effect of stifling meaningful dialogue about t ...
Governor Cuomo, Justice Anthony Kennedy and VP Joe Biden are all allegedly catholic all 3 should be publicly excommunicated
Taranto - WSJ : The Wall Street Journal THE WEEKEND INTERVIEW Updated June 28, 2013, 7:06 p.m. ET Jennifer Gratz's legal battle had dragged on for 5½ years when it ended in 2003 with a 6-3 U.S. Supreme Court ruling in her favor. She tells me she felt as if she'd "been kicked in the gut." If that seems an unusual reaction to a victory, it's because the circumstances made it Pyrrhic. Ms. Gratz, then 25, had sued to challenge the University of Michigan's racially discriminatory admissions policies, under which the prestigious Ann Arbor campus had turned her away. Her case was paired with that of a prospective law student, Barbara Grutter. Ms. Grutter lost her case 5-4 as Justice Sandra Day O'Connor, joined by Stephen Breyer, switched sides. Grutter v. Bollinger gave universities the green light to continue practicing racial discrimination in the name of "diversity." Ten years and one day later, Justice Anthony Kennedy turned the light yellow. On Monday, his opinion for a 7-1 majority in Fisher v. University ...

The Supreme Court struck down the key Section 3 provision of the Defense of Marriage Act today, nullifying the law that prevented the federal government from extending benefits to same-sex marriages recognized by the dozen or so states that currently permit them. Combined with the Court's refusal to hear a case related to California's Proposition 8 - a referendum banning *** marriage in that state, which passed with huge popular support, but was effectively disabled by the state government - today was a big strategic win for the *** marriage cause. There had long been fears DOMA would be vulnerable on the equal-protection grounds Justice Anthony Kennedy cited in the majority opinion, but supporters thought it was necessary to prevent a minority of states using the network of federal law to spread same-sex marriage from coast to coast. Justice Antonin Scalia wrote an epic dissent from today's 5-4 ruling, questioning the Supreme Court's standing to rule on the case at all, since the nominal defendant, the U ...
So yesterday the Court turned the clock back on voting rights for minorities... and today the said the clock can continue forward for *** rights. This has been a bittersweet couple of days. I can’t even imagine what an African-American who has to vote in Mississippi and who is in a *** relationship is going through right now. Today’s Supreme Court decision on DOMA was another 5-4 vote, this time with Justice Anthony Kennedy making the correct call. We may have elected Barack Obama as president, but all of our nation’s big decisions are being made by Anthony Kennedy alone. The path that America is taking all boils down to what Anthony Kennedy feels, to what his experiences are. Given the last two Supreme Court decisions, I take it that Kennedy must have some *** friends, but that he never had to stand in a long line to vote. Let’s take a moment to savor this victory—and then read the dissent so that we can snicker about how much it must have annoyed Scalia and Alito. My guess is that Scalia and c ...

Court: DNA can be taken in arrests Justices rule it’s legitimate police procedure By Jesse J. Holland Associated Press WASHINGTON — A sharply divided Supreme Court cleared the way Monday for police to take a DNA swab from anyone they arrest for a serious crime, endorsing a practice now followed by more than half the states as well as the federal government. The justices differed strikingly on how big a step that was. “Taking and analyzing a cheek swab of the arrestee DNA is, like fingerprinting and photographing, a legitimate police booking procedure that is reasonable under the Fourth Amendment,” Justice Anthony Kennedy wrote for the court’s five-justice majority. The ruling backed a Mary-land law allowing DNA swabbing of people arrested for serious crimes. Kennedy, who is often considered the court’s swing vote, wrote the decision along with conservative-leaning Chief Justice John Roberts and Justices Samuel Alito and Clarence Thomas. They were joined by liberal-leaning Justice Stephen Breye ...
