‘Making A Murderer’ Subject Denied U.S. Supreme Court Appeal

‘Making A Murderer’ Subject Denied U.S. Supreme Court Appeal

The Court mostly overturned a finding by a lower court that numerous districts - which Texas adopted based on an interim map approved by that court in 2012 as a temporary fix - were still impermissible gerrymanders. "He has compared her religious beliefs about marriage - which the Supreme Court said are "decent and honorable" - to racial discrimination", Waggoner continued. Last week, however, voting rights advocates secured a high-profile victory in their challenge to Kansas Secretary of State's Kris Kobach's proof-of-citizenship voter-registration requirement when a district judge handed down her...

Representing Stutzman, the Alliance Defending Freedom filed a brief with the U.S. Supreme Court arguing Stutzman's case should be reconsidered because the court reversed Colorado's decision to punish Phillips for declining the same-sex couples request based on his religious beliefs about marriage. Stutzman appealed the ruling to the U.S. Supreme Court.

"To be clear, the court made no indication the lower courts ruled incorrectly and made no decision on the case's merits", James Esseks, director of the ACLU's LGBT and HIV Project, said in a statement.

While Wisconsin courts ruled Dassey's confession was voluntary, a federal magistrate judge and a three-judge appeals court panel disagreed, saying he should be retried or released from prison. They initially ordered the General Assembly to redraw the maps again before this year's elections, but the Supreme Court quickly put that part of the ruling on hold.

In 2012, a US district judge in San Antonio ruled that the maps unfairly discriminated against Texas' minority voters.

Supreme Court's E-Commerce Ruling Could Help Amazon
About half its sales involve goods owned by millions of third-party merchants, many of which don't collect taxes. Internet companies argued applying a sales tax would be a daunting task, as local tax laws vary widely by state.

A federal magistrate overturned the conviction previous year, but the Wisconsin Department of Justice appealed that decision up to a U.S. Appeals Court, which in a 4-3 ruling found the confession to be voluntary.

Though he did not find one in that case, he signaled his openness to striking down extreme partisan gerrymanders if the court could agree on a standard to do so. "Dassey was subjected to myriad psychologically coercive techniques, but the state court did not review his interrogation with the special care required by Supreme Court precedent". As a learning-disabled 16-year-old, Dassey was interrogated four times over a 48-hour period, and video recordings appear to show investigators telling him information about the murder that he does not know.

In the baker ruling, the court's five conservatives were joined by two liberals in issuing a narrow decision written by Justice Anthony Kennedy limited to the facts in that particular case.
