Agreed. Getting to strike down liberal laws would be so much easier for him than worry about either being written about in history books as the Chief Justice who enabled Trump or feeling the constant wrath of the red team.

These decisions are just to soften the blow when we get the 5-4 decision in Trump's favor on the release of his financials.

Yes, I'd bet he's assuming that if Biden replaces Ginsburg and Breyer, the pressure will be eased even if the court's ideological makeup hasn't changed.

But wouldn't you make that trade? Only death will get Trump out of office before 1/20/21.

Dems will learn the same lesson when Biden adds another woke corporatist to the court.

Their victories are in the future when the Court strikes down the Green New Deal.

The Louisiana abortion law is struck down, but without a majority. Roberts just concurred in the judgment and played the stare decisis card, even though he dissented from the very precedent that was set via stare decisis.

And finally, the CFPB case came down. Roberts struck down the provision regarding the removal of the director, but saved the rest of the CFPB by finding that provision severable. Thomas and Gorsuch would have not severed.

Sorry I forgot about the board for a couple weeks and missed some discussion, of which may be very late:

Concurrences and dissents all over the place. Looking forward to GH's summary.

Looks like the controlling opinion is that Trump has the right to end DACA but the method of doing so was capricious and arbitrary and therefore unconstitutional.
1. SCOTUS essentially punted DACA until after November.
2. But there is something to be said on how comical it is that Trump keeps incompetently losing at SCOTUS on capricious and arbitrary grounds.

I think one factor to consider is whether the Democrats would threaten to pack the Court if they gain the power to do so. If they make such a threat, it could be done so as a warning to Roberts that you better not strike down the legislation we pass, or we're going to take away the immense power you have as the median Justice on the Court.

What do you think, afraid of Democrats stacking the Court? Fear of more social upheaval/protests, loss of legitimacy of the Court? Guaranteeing a blue wave in November? Something else?

I would indeed guess that Roberts fears that gutting Roe v. Wade now would motivate the left to turn out in 2020. It also likely didn't help that Louisiana did essentially the same thing that Texas did and they assumed that just replacing Kennedy with Kavanaugh would solve things. I think Roberts is definitely leaving the door open for anti-abortion activists to try again with more creative legislation should the Court continue to move more in their favor.

I need to read what he wrote when I get a chance. I'm definitely curious if he encouraged future challenges.

I have more questions but I'll read up on it later today.

Lets continue the proud tradition of making terrible rulings in an attempt to deter court packing!
