The Supreme Court will soon begin issuing its first full year of opinions.
We should start writing about the court’s first year of legal rulings.
That is, right now, because it will.
It will be a rare moment when a majority of the justices will actually sit in the courtroom to hear arguments, as they have done in the past when they ruled on cases.
And even then, they’ll often be overruled by the lower courts and the president, whose opinions can become a lightning rod for the public.
But that’s just the beginning.
There are many more important things to cover.
And so here’s a memo from me to you.
It’s a reminder that I’m here to stay, even as the Court prepares to take up its first major case in the next decade.
It also tells you how to start a new writing career, even if it’s not the one you’ve been pursuing for years.
I’m asking you to keep reading.
It’s been a year since the Supreme Courts decision in the Hobby Lobby case, which upheld the right of religious employers to deny coverage for contraceptives.
The court is expected to hear oral arguments on that case later this month.
I wrote a piece for the Washington Post on the decision, but it’s still available on Scribd and in other places.
It has been a long, busy year for the Supreme Brethren.
But it is a year that they will not be hearing a single case on the Constitution.
That will change soon.
The Supreme Courts first full term is scheduled to begin in January, and the Court will be in session for almost five months in 2019.
The justices will hear only about four cases a year in 2019, and in 2020, fewer than three a year.
That’s the most they’ve heard in the last 20 years, and it’s the shortest the justices have been in that time frame since the Reagan era.
I will be taking a break from this post to take another, more substantive step in my career.
But I will continue to do my work for the American people, so you can rest assured that I will be writing and speaking about the Court’s decisions in all their complexity and depth.
I am not leaving this job until I am.
I have a couple of things to say about the Hobby Act and the Supreme Justices.
The Supreme Court ruling in Hobby Lobby and the way that it’s been interpreted by the court are a direct rebuke to the American Constitution.
It is, as Justice Clarence Thomas wrote for the Court in Hobby, “a clear rebuke of our founding principle.”
It is also a direct attack on the fundamental principle of separation of church and state.
The Court has held that “the First Amendment guarantees no free exercise of religion,” a ruling that many of the nation’s religious leaders and conservative lawmakers have praised.
It says the government cannot prohibit a person or group of people from holding or expressing a particular religious belief.
It does not say that religion is not important.
It is not a decision for the court to make.
It will not decide the future of the country.
But if the court upholds it, it will be the end of the American experiment.
I want to take a moment to talk about why I think the Supreme court’s decision in Hobby is so important.
First, it is not only the case of Hobby Lobby, but of all religious employers who are free to opt out of contraception coverage.
The Hobby Lobby decision makes clear that the federal government cannot force employers to provide coverage for the birth control pill or the morning-after pill.
That’s important because, as the Supreme justices noted in Hobby in 2013, the federal courts are not in the business of deciding whether or not to give contraceptive coverage to people or businesses.
They are in the case, of course, of a woman trying to prevent her pregnancy.
The government can’t compel a woman to do something that she’s not doing.
The ruling also provides an important reminder that the Court does not think the government should have the right to force people to have access to birth control.
The federal government has already given states the option to require that people who are planning to have children get contraception coverage, even though the Supreme Supreme Court has ruled that this violates the First Amendment.
The states are free, however, to require women to get contraception for themselves and their family members.
The decision in this case is a rebuke to what Justice Elena Kagan wrote in Hobby: “The federal government can, however reluctantly, impose a financial penalty for a woman’s choice to not have an abortion, but that is not the same as forcing a woman who has a choice to have an unwanted pregnancy.”
The decision to uphold the mandate that women have to get contraceptive coverage has been hailed by the president and most conservative legal experts.
The president has even said that the Supreme ruling “makes it absolutely clear that states can do what they want with their own women’s health, even with the federal mandate.”The
