    This is the lawyer in me, but that's not 100% accurate. They're not asking for SCOTUS to discriminate, they're asking SCOTUS to say that the provisions of the federal civil rights act which bars gender discrimination does not cover sexual orientation or gender identity.

    Honestly, it's always been an awkward workaround given that most states which cover sexual orientation and gender identity do so explicitly, so the fact that federally you have to stretch the limits of definition of gender to encompass those categories by saying it's effectively discriminating based on gender norms has always been a bit of a reach.

    The simple fix would just be for Congress to add those categories explicitly to the federal law. But yes, I know, good luck getting that through Moscow Mitch and the Republican Senate.

    John Roberts is having a bad morning. 5 US Senators file an Amicus brief explicitly accusing the Supreme Court of being biased towards corporate interests.

    And it will amount to nothing. I doubt he even noticed it let alone is bothered by it.

    My favorite part is to reinforce their argument they quoted his own dissent in Obergefell.

    It matters to this extent: Roberts, like Scalia, likes to kid himself that he's not a stooge. This demonstrates to the world that we're not buying it. Everybody knows Kavanaugh, Thomas, and Alito are jokes, but Roberts and Gorsuch think of themselves as real jurists. To be called on their bullsh-t so publicly has to sting.

    I think it's a fantastic way to go about it.

    Legal standing? Impact? I assume an amicus brief carries more weight than a simple speech on the Senate floor.

    Cause, if it's filed like this it goes in the Judicial Record and sticks it right up Roberts ***. That's why.

    Congrats...want a cookie?

    This means nothing, it says nothing, and 90% of the country (99% of the world) has no idea it even happened. It is just another way for the Left to pat themselves on the back after already losing. Reminds of the good ole days around here when the Red Sux fans would see the Yankees win the WS but talk about how they lead the division for more days. Woohoo...

    Yes. It doesnt even really do that though because "owning the Libs" at least riles up the Libs. Roberts probably rolled his eyes and laughed as he ignored it. But boy is the Left proud of themselves THEY REALLY SHOWED HIM!!!

    This ranks up there with getting Trump's taxes. It is pointless and has zero teeth to fix anything.

    Re: SCOTUS 14: Confirming a Rabid Partisan to Own the Libs

    Owning the libs doesn't always rile the libs. It usually implies either dumb sh*t knucks say and do because they think it pi55es us off (while we just laugh at them) , or stuff that actually does pi55 off the libs and that they will eventually regret when demographics finally catch up to them and we're back in power. Like asking for a cheeseburger at an Indian restaurant, or "rollin' coal" in your F350. Or confirming rabidly partisan and self-disqualifying SCOTUS Justices, and nuking the Senate filibuster.

    Libs can't help themselves they always get riled up...that is the sole reason they are on Twitter. Libs thrive on being outraged.

    Roberts is worried about how he looks in the history books. The Dems don't care. Own who? Sorry, if you can't put anything on the record and do it the right way and still get Handy's want a cookie remark then you may as well not do anything. Perfect for the Dems cause they rock at that. Meanwhile the knucks ALWAYS do something. ALWAYS.

    You must have been asleep through the tea party. The Right OWNS the outrage meter. Libs are tame by comparison.

    So what has changed? Other than saying "we put it on the record" how has anything been affected? It hasnt. This is a bunch of people pretending they did something important when they did nothing.
