Today at the 9th Circuit, @chasestrangio will be arguing in the Idaho anti-trans sports ban case, Hecox v. Little. The plaintiffs won an injunction below.

The judges are currently on the 2nd of 4 arguments. Hecox is the 4th. You can watch it here:…
They're starting on the third case now, which, given the time allotted, means the Hecox arguments should be beginning around 5:15p ET/2:15p PT.
The Hecox v. Little arguments are beginning now:…
"The singular effect of the law is to exclude transgender women and girls from sports. ... This was the entirety of the debate." - @chasestrangio, arguing before the 9th Circuit in opposition to Idaho's anti-trans sports law
Judge Kleinfeld, a GHWB appointee who was born in 1945 and took senior status more than a decade ago, is most aggressively going after the plaintiffs' arguments — on standing and mootness and on the merits.

One hundred days ago, Donald Trump was ending his time in office, but Tim Scott starts off his speech by saying Biden is divisive. OK.
Tim Scott continues trying to sell Biden as divisive.

“Families get to define [the American Dream] for themselves,” Scott says, opposing ... more schooling availability for all Americans.
Scott is most effective, rhetorically, on policing, race-based discrimination, & voting — using his own experiences w/ racism to try to push back against Dem attacks on GOP policies/positions. It was an attempt to connect, but then he just went off into defensive talking points.

A long-overdue moment. It’s not the work, but it’s a moment for history.
If you told your Election 2008 self that Liz Cheney would fist-bump Joe Biden one day, you’d have laughed yourself out of the room.
For the kids: “Fistbump: The Politics of Fear,” by Barry Blitt.…

OK, let’s do this. It’s the #Oscars ... Here’s my thread.
TBH, I didn’t see a bunch of the films so I don’t have as strong of feelings about tonight as usual.

But I welcome Laura Dern in a cloud with all of my heart.
Loved Regina King’s opening. Honest and compelling.

Um. I think this glacier is alive and we don’t even have a Sharknado-type movie on tap to prepare us for this.
(Does Gen Z even know what Sharknado is? Honestly, without looking I’d place it at, hmm, approximately 2013?)
Oh, wow. I got it right! 🦈🌪🦈

You really should read the relatively short #SCOTUS ruling tonight. The unsigned opinion for the Supreme Court is pretty much downright rude to the *conservative* panel below.…
Which is yet another reason why the shadow docket’s constant per curiam treatment is inappropriate given how many cases are effectively being resolved this way — as the justices in the majority tonight themselves make clear they expect lower courts to understand.
The 2-page dissent from Kagan is just as sharp — but aimed (uncharacteristically, for Kagan) at her colleagues in the majority. (Look at that last sentence.)

This story is amazing, but for none of the reasons intended by @politico, I suspect.
This paragraph is either an Escher drawing or a Rorschach test. I can’t decide which.
Back in 2009, I was a blogger in Columbus, Ohio, mere days before I covered the signing of the Matthew Shepard and James Byrd Jr. Hate Crimes Prevention Act bill-signing (it was actually the NDAA) at the White House. They welcomed me with open arms!
