‘The latest official photo of the Supreme Court’s current nine justices has been released, showing all three of Donald Trump’s picks for the first time.
More than five months after Justice Amy Coney Barrett was confirmed to replace Ruth Bader Ginsburg, the court released its official portrait showing the nine justices.
Seated in the front are Samuel Alito, Clarence Thomas, John Roberts, Stephen Breyer, and Sonia Sotomayor.
Standing behind them are Brett Kavanaugh, Elena Kagan, Neil Gorsuch, and Amy Coney Barrett.
Below is the official portrait:
The Supreme Court ruled in an 8-1 decision that a Georgia college’s speech code policy violated the First Amendment and that a student who was harmed by the policy can seek damages.
Chief Justice John Roberts was the only dissenter in the ruling favoring a couple of Christian students who challenged the university for restricting when, where, and how they could speak about their faith and disseminate materials on campus.
In the 7-2 ruling, the justices sided with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, thwarting the Sierra Club’s bid to obtain documents concerning a regulation finalized in 2014 relating to power plants.
Earlier this year, the Court ordered lower courts in New Jersey and Colorado to rehear cases about coronavirus restrictions for religious gatherings after the high court’s recent decision not to allow New York to impose similar restrictions.
To the surprise of many, the Supreme Court refused to take up a case earlier this year from several Republicans challenging changes to election rules in the battleground state of Pennsylvania.
The case was brought by a former Republican congressional candidate, Jim Bognet, and four individual voters who argued the state high court exceeded its authority when it ordered the expansion of ballot deadlines amidst the pandemic.
