Trump to announce Supreme Court pick July 9

Lee and his brother, Utah Supreme Court Justice Thomas Lee, are both on the list to replace Kennedy - setting up a sibling showdown over who could get the nod.

Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) said he expects to hold confirmation hearings in "the weeks ahead" but told reporters he has "no idea" whom President Trump will nominate (E&E News PM, June 27). Trump said he will pick from a list of 25 conservative candidates.

A year after he chose Neil Gorsuch to the delight of conservatives, the president is nominating a replacement for retiring Justice Anthony Kennedy. "And that will happen automatically in my opinion, because I am putting pro-life justices on the court". Environmental observers say the Clean Water Act is likely to come under fire, including the Waters of the US rule - an Obama era regulation that sought to clarify EPA's jurisdiction over USA waterways, but has since been suspended and could wind up before the Supreme Court.

"We're the closest we've ever been to overturning Roe v. Wade", a woman says in a video released online by the group Students for Life of America shortly after the news broke. Other states, including MS and Louisiana, have banned abortion at 15 weeks' gestation, and others have prohibited specific methods.

Planned Parenthood reacted on Wednesday to the news that Kennedy will step down with alarm.

"Senator McConnell set the new standard by giving the American people their say in the upcoming election before Court vacancies are filled", he said in a statement.

Hey Sony, Microsoft and Nintendo are mocking your cross-play ‘support’

Colombia 1-2 Japan: Yuya Osako header seals emotional opening win
Colombia equalized late in the first half on Juan Quintero's rolling but accurate free kick, which sneaked inside the right post. But it was all in vain when Japan's Yuya Osako leapt above his marker to head a corner into the net for the 73rd-minute victor .

Rep. Beto O'Rourke rallies outside immigrant facility
The children are only allowed two hours a day for outdoor activities and spend the rest of their days inside a former Walmart . People at the Brownsville facility indicated that most children there are able to have some communication with their parents.

The fact that the law faces a state challenge hasn't convinced some of its supporters that it won't make it to the Supreme Court, however. That process will be easier than taking on Roe directly, and it could start start as early as next year. "That's essentially what we're putting before the court and if they do their due diligence, they've got to answer".

University of Chicago Law Professor Geoffrey Stone told the legal news website conservatives now on the nation's hight court bench have a history of overturning precedent - including Wednesday's ruling in a union fees case.

That idea could be tested in Arkansas. "She generally sides with the abortion industry as opposed to the Constitution", Martin said. "Judges, and particularly the Supreme Court, have been a resounding success of this administration". The motto of the list is "no more Souters", a reference to a George W.H. Bush appointee believed to be conservative who turned out to have a moderate-liberal bent while on the court, voting to uphold Roe v. Wade. Louisiana's 15-week law is also on hold pending the outcome of litigation in the MS law. That aligns with her willingness in recent years to counter her party on abortion issues.

In 2013 - when President Obama ruled and the Democrats controlled the Senate - then-Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and current Minority Leader Chuck Schumer changed the Senate rules.

State lawmakers pledge to keep trying. "I said I'm not going to do it".

"Think of it this way - if there is another vacancy, who do you want picking the next Supreme Court Justice?"
