Women losing coverage under Obamacare, too
Topic - U.S. Court Of Appeals
Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts on Friday declined to temporarily block a lower court ruling that opens the world's best-selling multiple sclerosis drug to competition from generic rivals next month.
The U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia on Tuesday spiked a cockamamie scheme originated by Common Cause, a liberal lobbying group, to rewrite the rules of the U.S. Senate to make it easier to silence minority voices.
Even after President Obama and the Democrats enacted Obamacare, they didn't know what was in it, despite Nancy Pelosi's assurance that Congress would find out what it had done once it was the law.
A D.C. man sentenced to nearly two decades in prison after his conviction on a $600 drug deal saw his closely-watched appeal rejected Friday, as defense attorneys prepare to take the case to the Supreme Court.
The Federal Communications Commission — part of what some consider the "fourth branch" of government — reared its head recently with an ill-conceived and ill-advised plan to question journalists about how they report the news.
The president's stunning proclamation that he will ignore the Constitution's checks and balances to go it alone puts new pressure on the judiciary. In the tug of war between the three branches of government, it often falls to judges to take the pen out of the hand of an overeager executive.
The IRS on Tuesday lost a federal appeal in a legal battle over its effort to institute competency exams and other new regulations for as many as 700,000 paid tax preparers.
Thanks to her son Robert, Joyce Wilkins has had a close look at the U.S. Senate confirmation process for federal judges.
Will broadband providers start charging Internet services such as Netflix to deliver the massive amounts of data that streaming video and other content require?
In a battle that could determine the future of the Internet, a federal appeals court Tuesday struck down federal rules blocking large Internet providers from charging higher rates for the biggest online users, raising the prospect of higher costs and slower connections for popular consumer services such as Amazon.com, Netflix and eBay.
Obamacare is headed for a do-over in the Supreme Court, and perhaps this time the court will be more amenable to doing its duty by putting this badly implemented scheme out of the nation's misery. The high court on Monday declined to hear Liberty University's expansive challenge to the employer mandate, but it did agree last week to consider a more focused challenge to the requirement that private firms pay for contraceptive devices and abortions, regardless of any moral objections they might have.
At the outset of his presidential campaign, in 2007, Barack Obama said that he was "running in this race because of what Dr. King called 'the fierce urgency of now.' Because I believe that there's such a thing as being too late. And that hour is almost upon us."
President Obama's deal-making skills usually shortchange America. He puts the world at risk by coddling an Iran loving the bomb; he requires Americans to purchase health care they don't want from a website that doesn't work. Now the administration is compelling utility companies to pay for a nuclear-waste storage site they can't use, and never will.
If you have ever been before a judge for any reason, did you think about whether the judge was appointed by a Democrat or a Republican? Probably not. People expect judges, regardless of political leanings, to be fair and competent -- and for the most part, this expectation has been fulfilled in America, unlike many other places in the world.
The U.S. Department of Justice wants an appeal to a court ruling that allows the U.S. House of Representatives to proceed with contempt charges against U.S. Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. for his role in the botched "Fast and Furious" gun-running scheme.
