No 6-3 decisions – Update

Perhaps I spoke to soon. Two important cases were just decided with all six conservatives in the majority as follows:

Americans for Prosperity v. Bonta

The Court struck down California’s requirement that charities and nonprofits operating in the state provide the state attorney general’s office with the names and addresses of their largest donors. (From Scotusblog.com)

Brnovich v. Democratic National Committee

By a vote of 6-3, the justices upheld two Arizona voting provisions that Democrats and civil rights groups challenged as disproportionately burdening minority voters. In an opinion by Justice Samuel Alito, the majority outlined what it described as “guideposts” for future challenges to voting laws under Section 2 of the Voting Rights Act, which bans racial discrimination in election practices. The court’s three liberal justices dissented, with Justice Elena Kagan complaining that Thursday’s decision “undermines Section 2 and the right it provides.” (From Scotusblog.com)

Stay tuned,
