Justice Ketanji Brown Jackson sparred with Noel Francisco in a case over the funding structure for the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. Also: Law Dork on TV.
She got THOMAS to see her point of view. Miracle Lady
A SCOTUS ruling, other than booting it out of a SCOTUS purview, will make one wonder if we can simply eliminate all other branches of our government. Just wondering....
We are so fortunate to have Justice Jackson.
Thank you so much for this information and I’m glad your Substack popped up.
Thanks for making this info accessible to those of us that aren’t lawyers!!
GENIUS - both Justice Jadckson and you, Chris Geidner. No idea what I'd do without you, sir.
If Congress can spend money however it likes, can it grant defense department the authority to automatically draw 30% of federal revenue without annual appropriation bills? And future congress cannot override this without a filibuster-proof majority (even though Congress normally only requires simple majority for appropriation bills)?
Elizabeth Prelogar has been a top-class Solicitor General in her two-plus years, and has served the government in an exemplary fashion, with well-researched and -presented arguments at the Court in several key cases. Clerking for Justices RBG and Kagan, and previously for Merrick Garland at the DCCA, has served her well, and in the CFPB currently argued, she has run circles round her predecessor from the tRump years, Noel Francisco...who quite honestly was dealt a bad hand by the 5th CA.
