The deranged Supreme Court case that threatens US democracy, explained

  The deranged Supreme Court case that threatens US democracy, explained Moore v. Harper is a test of whether this Supreme Court can ever be trusted with power.Moore is also potentially the biggest threat to free and fair elections in the United States to reach the Supreme Court in my lifetime — and I was alive for Bush v. Gore. Four justices have endorsed the utterly nonsensical legal theory underlying Moore, which means that, unless one of those four has second thoughts, the future of US elections will be decided by Trump-appointed Justice Amy Coney Barrett.

His resignation was noted in the Government Gazette on Friday and signed by Governor-General David Hurley's official secretary Paul Singer.

Mr Heydon served on the High Court from 2003 until 2013.

In June 2020, the High Court publicly apologised to six women after allegations of sexual harassment of them by Mr Heydon were upheld by an independent investigator.

A settlement with three women earlier this year over harassment they were found to have suffered included an apology from the attorney-general on behalf of the government.

Mr Heydon was appointed a companion in the general division of the Order of Australia in 2004.
