SG Mehta: I was going to say that this kind of order sets a wrong precedent. But a common man doesn't get the benefits of habeas when arrested...

SG Mehta: Other side's argument would be that it's an interim order, go argue. That I'll address it first. The Supreme Court has held in its judgement that where notice is made returnable and not the date of filing.

Some bad news for Indian Country as U.S. Supreme Court rules that tribes do not enjoy sovereign immunity in federal bankruptcy proceedings.

Decision is 8-1, with Justice Neil Gorsuch the lone voice in support of tribes.

Justice Ketanji Brown Jackson authors the court's opinion.
Justice Ketanji Brown Jackson:"Under our precedents, we will not find an abrogation of tribal sovereign immunity unless Congress has conveyed its intent to abrogate in unequivocal terms. That is a high bar. But for the reasons explained below, we find it has been satisfied here."
Justice Clarence Thomas, naturally, chimes in with this nugget of wisdom: "As I have explained, to the extent that tribes possess sovereign immunity at all, that immunity does not extend to 'suits arising out of a tribe’s commercial activities conducted beyond its territory.'"

1. Yesterday, while West Bengal CM (with doubtful basic educational credentials) was demanding resignation of the fine technocrat Railway Minister of India,

her State Govt went to the #SupremeCourt appealing for a stay on the #CalcuttaHighCourt order of CBI probe of
#recruitmentscam in West Bengal's municipalities too

WB expected a fast hearing of such appeal

Supreme Court rapped them

Said, no fast hearing,not before July 3

Added that the accused people in such scam could have come, but how could the State Govt appear to halt such probe?
As the Solicitor General opposed West Bengal Govt's appeal,

GoWB stated SG knew nothing about this case, how could he oppose?

SG said he was aware of the #recruitmentscam in the education sector & hence, could legitimately oppose

The top Court didn't grant West Bengal Govt

In those terms, it seems like the game is over. #Biden should just surrender, hand the most extreme wing of the (degraded, corrupt, illegitimate, authoritarian) #GOP everything, even if doing so will push Biden's approval rating lower, dangerously close to the next election.
