BEN WILLIAMS — The one 2018 U.S. Supreme Court opinion to read

The U.S. Supreme Court wrapped up the sitting portion of the 2017-2018 term on June 28, 2018. The nine lifetime Justices left 59 signed merit opinions and a stunned public in their wake. The June opinion releases overshadowed the term. In rapid fire decimation of liberal aspirations, the Court announced a slew of controversial, conservative opinions. Swing vote Justice Anthony ...

BEN WILLIAMS — Alexander Hamilton v Robert S. Mueller III: Can a president be indicted?

At the end of Act I of the box-office smash Hamilton: An American Musical, the play’s namesake beseeches his murderer-to-be to co-author a “series of essays, anonymously published” defending the proposed U.S. Constitution.  Alexander Hamilton’s entreaty to Aaron Burr probably never occurred, but Hamilton – with assistance from fellow Founding Fathers James Madison and John Jay – would publish incognito ...

BEN WILLIAMS — Dissecting the December 2017 U.S. Supreme Court Travel Ban Order

When Hawaii-based U.S. District Judge Derrick Kahala Watson issued his short-lived October 17, 2017 U.S.-wide restraining order of President Trump’s September 24, 2017 Proclamation 9645 (sometimes called the “third travel ban”), the lifetime Article III appointee felt compelled to lead with injudicious humor: “Professional athletes mirror the federal government in this respect: they operate within a set of rules, and ...

Marshall Ramsey’s September 3 cartoon, depicting Governor Bryant as a Confederate soldier writing home about defending the flag on order of the “Yankee Supreme Court,” is quite clever and well-drawn.  The immensely-talented cartoonist is a credit to the State of Mississippi.  This particular cartoon, however, may perpetuate recent indistinct and misleading news reports.  Counter to published reports in various news ...

BEN WILLIAMS — The one U.S. Supreme Court opinion to read in 2017

The U.S. Supreme Court’s regular term ended Friday, June 30, 2017, and the nine lifetime Justices began their summer recesses. A vacant seat and a perceived 4-4 ideological split clouded expectations in October when the court term began.  Six months into the session, Justice Gorsuch joined the bench in a televised swearing-in ceremony conducted by swing-vote Justice Kennedy at the ...
