Retire Universal Injunctions

"The combination of universal injunctions and the mandatory legal process has made courts more prominent in our political life."

There’s not much worth discussing yet in Donald Trump’s criminal trial in New York, so Sarah and David focus on the Supreme Court and a case on Idaho’s law restricting gender-transition treatment for minors. Plus: Murmurs about Clarence Thomas’ brief absence.

The Agenda:
Election law crimes, tax crimes, and falsification of business records
—Challenges of broad injunctions
Idaho’s Vulnerable Child Protection Act
—SCOTUS exhausted with emergency docket applications
Justices call to retire universal injunctions
January 6 arguments before SCOTUS
SCOTUS declines to intervene in a police lawsuit against a Black Lives Matter activist
—Obstructions in official proceedings
—Legal issues in the Iran-Israel conflict
