Today at SCOTUS: The final two arguments of 2021, and they're both biggies. One case involves a state's refusal to provide funds to religious schools. The other involves the right to an effective lawyer -- and what happens post-conviction if that right was potentially violated.
First up: Carson v. Makin, a challenge to a Maine program that pays for some students to attend private schools but does not allow the money to be used at schools that provide religious instruction. The challengers say that violates religious freedom.…
Next up: Shinn v. Ramirez & Jones, which involves two men on Arizona's death row who claim their court-appointed lawyers put up ineffective defenses. The question is whether they can develop those claims when challenging their convictions in federal court.…

First up is Patel v. Garland, involving a man who has lived in the U.S. for nearly 30 years and is facing deportation. The question is whether federal courts can review the immigration agency's decision to deny him relief. Here's @shobawadhia's preview:…
Next up will be Hughes v. Northwestern University, an important case on the Employee Retirement Income Security Act. The lawsuit alleges that the university violated ERISA by including too many high-fee investment options in its employee retirement plans.…

Starting momentarily: Oral argument in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, a case involving Mississippi’s attempt to ban nearly all abortions after 15 weeks. The state has asked the court to overturn Roe v. Wade. We’ll be live-tweeting the argument here in this thread.
The court's marshal has gaveled in today's session, and the chief justice has called the case.

Arguing first: Scott Stewart, the solicitor general of Mississippi.
Stewart begins by saying that Roe (which established a constitutional right to abortion in 1973) and Casey (which re-affirmed Roe's core holding in 1992) "damaged the democratic process" and "poisoned the law."

In advance of tomorrow's argument in Dobbs v. Jackson Women's Health Organization, we asked experts and advocates on both sides of the abortion debate to weigh in on how the court should approach the case. You can read our full symposium here:…
First, @marjoriesba argues that the court's abortion precedents are "hopelessly unworkable" and based on misunderstandings about women's progress. SCOTUS, she argues, should scrap those precedents and allow the democratic branches to set abortion policy.…
Arguing that abortion is "a fundamental aspect of liberty and equality," @FGossGraves highlights the systemic disparities that affect the ability to decide whether and when to have children. She urges SCOTUS to affirm five decades of abortion precedent.…
