In Tuesday's Supreme Court Brief, our newsletter on the high court, we reported on oral arguments in McCutcheon v. Federal Election Commission, the justices' latest foray into campaign finance regulation.
Also, Justice Antonin Scalia's extraordinary interview in New York magazine this week has generated a lot of buzz for what he said about the devil, Duck Dynasty, and the "shrilly liberal" Washington Post. But in the newsletter we've highlighted portions of the interview that lawyers should know about, including his views on Supreme Court practitioners, law clerks, and originalism at Harvard Law School. Finally, court scholar Lisa McElroy makes a plea for the court to stay open next week in spite of the government shutdown.
In today's edition, sent to subscribers this afternoon, we'll report on today's oral arguments, and an important petition before the court on class action settlements.
