A group of 16 states have filed briefs with the U.S. Supreme Court this week that encourage the high court to reverse a federal appeals court decision overturning a ban the state of Arizona passed to ban abortions after 20 weeks because unborn children feel pain.
Christian craft store Hobby Lobby today filed papers with the Supreme Court asking it to take it case against the Obama administration, which is attempting to make it comply with the HHS mandate that compels religious companies to pay for birth control and abortion-causing drugs for their employees.
The Supreme Court will not examine Maryland’s handgun permit law, leaving to stand an appeals court ruling that the state’s restrictive rules for concealed-carry permits do not unconstitutionally infringe upon gun-owners’ rights. Maryland is one of a few states that follows a “may issue” standard, giving officials broad latitude to deny permits to carry a gun in public. Most states operate on a “shall issue” basis, meaning officials must give out a permit if an applicant meets certain objective criteria.
A pro-life-run company in Pennsylvania is taking the pro-abortion HHS mandate to the Supreme Court with a simple request: tear down this mandate.
Alliance Defending Freedom attorneys representing a Pennsylvania family and its woodworking business asked the U.S. Supreme Court Thursday to hear its lawsuit against the Obama administration’s abortion pill mandate, which could cost the family nearly $ 3 million per month in fines if it doesn’t agree to live contrary to its Christian convictions. It is the first Supreme Court petition in a case challenging a direct ruling on the mandate.
The U.S. Supreme Court will consider, during its upcoming term, pro-life legislation out of Oklahoma that protects women from the dangerous abortion drug.
With the Planned Parenthood abortion business violating FDA protocols on how the abortion drug should be administered, Oklahoma passed a law requiring abortion business to follow the FDA recommendations, that make an already dangerous abortion drug less dangerous for women.
Today, the Supreme Court of Mississippi granted the appeal sought by state Attorney General Jim Hood (D) and without further briefing found that Hinds County Circuit Court Judge Winston Kidd erred as a matter of law when he found House Bill 2 to be vague and unconstitutional. The Supreme Court vacated the Circuit Court’s order which had granted the law’s opponents injunctive relief, thereby allowing the NRA-backed law to take effect immediately.
Easy Drive Data Recovery is a supreme and mighty data recovery application that has a remarkable ability of restoring files in situations that may seem absolutely hopeless.
Easy Drive Data Recovery is a supreme and mighty data recovery application that has a remarkable ability of restoring files in situations that may seem absolutely hopeless, like accidentally formatting a hard drive or having a drive corrupted because of a nasty virus or someone’s clumsy hands. While looking simple and undemanding, it’s powerful enough to restore files that aren’t even present in the file system.
Last week, the New Hampshire Supreme Court handed down an important ruling relating to the definition of a ‘loaded pistol or revolver’ [under RSA 159:4 (2002)]. The state Supreme Court ruled, “that in order for a pistol or revolver to be considered “loaded” within the meaning of RSA 159:4, the pistol or revolver must contain a cartridge in the chamber or must contain a magazine, cylinder, or clip inserted in or otherwise adjoined to the firearm such that the firearm can be discharged through normal operation.”
Simply, “loaded” means “loaded.”
The ruling stemmed from a case involving Oriol Dor, 31, of Manchester, who was charged with a Class A misdemeanor.
According to court documents, on May 8, 2012, police searched Dor’s vehicle and discovered an unloaded .40 caliber semiautomatic pistol adjacent to a loaded magazine inside the vehicle’s glove compartment.
The SCOTUS tease continues.
Apparently the court's plane wasn't fueled and ready for an announcement today.—
