  Supreme Court cases: Here are the 8 cases justices have yet to rule on The Supreme Court is taking an unusually long time to complete its term this year, with decisions in eight cases still under wraps days after the justices would have typically cleared out its docket for the season. © Photo-Illustration:CNN/Getty Inages The coronavirus pandemic can be partly blamed for the delay. Already, the justices broke tradition in May by holding oral arguments over the phone and broadcasting them live as much of the country was under lockdown. require(["medianetNativeAdOnArticle"], function (medianetNativeAdOnArticle) { medianetNativeAdOnArticle.

The decision will likely delay Supreme Court arguments on the landmark case until after the 2020 elections , with a ruling as far out as 2021. Holz said Obamacare remains an overhang on the sector, "although we can deal with the clouds as opposed to the appeals court having more issues with

The term of the United States Supreme Court that just concluded was generally not a fun-fest for Republicans who expected more from their 5-4 conservative majority on the bench. Decisions affirming coverage of LGBTQ rights in anti-discrimination laws, striking down a popular state abortion restriction, and contradicting Trump’s sweeping assertions of presidential power were all nasty surprises for many of the president’s friends and allies.

But on the way to their vacation haunts, the Justices did give Republicans a small and unobtrusive gift, as reported by SCOTUSblog’s Amy Howe:

Democrats ask Supreme Court to hear emoluments case against Trump

  Democrats ask Supreme Court to hear emoluments case against Trump A group of Democratic lawmakers are appealing their emoluments case against President Trump to the Supreme Court after a federal appeals court ruled that they lacked standing to sue over alleged constitutional violations.The members of Congress are accusing Trump of violating the Constitution's Foreign Emoluments Clause, which prohibits federal officials from receiving gifts or money from foreign governments without congressional approval, by continuing to operate and profit from his hotel chain while in office. require(["medianetNativeAdOnArticle"], function (medianetNativeAdOnArticle) { medianetNativeAdOnArticle.

The Supreme Court consolidated several of these cases to consider whether the Obama administration’s “accommodation” still violates RFRA. Breitbart News previously reported on this case and covered oral arguments live from the courtroom. Today, the Supreme Court declined to decide

WASHINGTON — The Supreme Court on Tuesday rejected a request from Democratic state officials and the House of Representatives to quickly consider The Democratic states and the House, which intervened in the case to defend the health law, asked the Supreme Court to immediately review the

Today the Supreme Court released its calendar for the October argument session, which begins on Monday, Oct. 5, and continues through Wednesday, Oct. 14. The justices will hear 10 hours of oral argument over five days; they will not hear argument on Monday, Oct. 12, which is a federal holiday. All of the cases scheduled for argument in October had originally been scheduled for oral argument in March or April of this year but were postponed because of the COVID-19 pandemic. The shift of the spring cases to the October argument session also means that the challenge to the Affordable Care Act’s individual mandate will not be argued until the court’s November argument session at the earliest. That session begins on Nov. 2, the day before Election Day.

Supreme Court upholds Trump's expansion of ObamaCare birth control exemptions

  Supreme Court upholds Trump's expansion of ObamaCare birth control exemptions The Supreme Court on Wednesday upheld the Trump administration's expansion of ObamaCare birth control exemptions for employers.The 7-2 decision stemmed from a highly litigated question that first arose in the early days of the 2010 Affordable Care Act: Do employers who oppose birth control have to pay for workers' contraception?In the Obama era, religious nonprofits could claim an exemption from contraceptive coverage. Under the Trump administration, eligibility was extended to companies that voiced religious or moral objections.

“If the case reaches the Supreme Court , it would be decided in 2020 at the earliest.” The fifth circuit recently has averaged about 10 months to While the case could go all the way to the Supreme Court , “the most likely outcome is a legislative fix,” said Mizuho Securities analysts Ann Hynes and

The Supreme Court on Wednesday will take up a case from an order of nuns called the Little Sisters of the Poor to Obamacare 's 'contraceptive mandate'.

Democrats had avidly anticipated that oral argument as an opportunity to reinforce the huge gap between the two parties on health care policy, made more acute, of course, by the COVID-19 pandemic, as I observed when the Trump administration formally joined the appeal to SCOTUS just a few weeks ago:

The Supreme Court is reportedly already planning oral arguments on this case for the fall, likely before the November elections, making it excellent fodder for Democratic claims that Trump and the GOP are determined to strip Americans of health-care coverage. In fact, congressional Democrats and several Democratic-governed states tried unsuccessfully in January to expedite Supreme Court consideration of the case so that an actual decision would precede the elections. All that activity, of course, was prior to the coronavirus pandemic breakout, which has threatened health-care coverage for the many millions of people who are losing their jobs, and made health care a top-tier issue for nearly all voters.

Trump taxes: Supreme Court to issue opinions Thursday on Trump's financial records

This last point really is important. Just today a new study came out estimating that 5.4 million Americans lost their employer-based health insurance between February and April. It would be a really bad time for the Obamacare/Medicaid safety net for the uninsured to be shredded by the courts at the behest of Donald Trump and the Republican Party, particularly since they still do not have an alternative health care program to offer after all these years of frantic attacks on Obamacare.

So Republicans would just as soon change the subject from health care to almost anything else before voters vote. And if Democrats do succeed in ejecting Trump from power and taking control of both chambers of Congress, perhaps the endless GOP vendetta against the Affordable Care Act will become nothing more than a bad memory.
