BREAKING: #SCOTUS Halts Deposition Of Commerce Secretary In Challenge To Census Citizenship Question, Allows Deposition of DOJ Official To Proceed:…
While #SCOTUS stopped the Ross deposition for now and allowed the deposition of Gore and other discovery to go ahead, Gorsuch, joined by Thomas, would have granted the stay as sought by DOJ — halting both depositions and the extra discovery.…
The Chief found a way to keep this to only two justices voicing disagreement with the order. That's an impressive compromise — which involved quite a bit of work inside the court, I have to imagine.…
(To be clear, a compromise within the court is not a statement about the acceptability of that compromise to folks outside of the court. It's just a statement of what's happening within the court.)
One comment: The way Gorsuch chooses to describe what has gone on here — ignoring the changed understanding of where the question came from and Ross's testimony to Congress — is ... not the most compelling or accurate presentation of the information in this case.
There are links in my story to more, but here's a simple point, made clear once DOJ revealed that Bannon and Ross talked in early 2017 about the citizenship question issue:…
NY AG spokesperson @amyspitalnick comments on tonight’s #SCOTUS order (with the argument that this is good for the challengers b/c they got everything they wanted but Ross right away) —>
Here’s my full story on tonight’s #SCOTUS order, which scuttles Ross’s deposition in the Census citizenship question case for now, but allows the deposition of Gore and other discovery to go ahead. (Also: The case isn’t going away, at SCOTUS or dist ct.)…
Following up on last night's #SCOTUS order in the Census case —… — Judge Furman has already scheduled a hearing for 2:30p Wednesday and ordered a letter or letters including info on when Gore's deposition is taking place to be submitted by 10a Wednesday.
