Neil Gorsuch Confirmed To SCOTUS For Life; National LGBTQ Task Force Reacts Comments (0)

Neil Gorsuch was confirmed to the SCOTUS today by a vote of 54-45.

Russell Roybal, Deputy Executive Director of the National LGBTQ Task Force, had the following to say about this profoundly disturbing turn of events:

Neil Gorsuch’s confirmation to the Supreme Court represents the triumph of bullying over moderation. Taking their lead from the Bully-in-Chief Donald Trump, Mitch McConnell twisted and turned the rules of the Senate to ram this extremist nominee through — slashing and burning safeguards for moderation, such as the rule calling for a 60 votes threshold needed to confirm an Associate Supreme Court Justice. We now have a new Justice who is so conservative that he makes Antonin Scalia look moderate.

Three sell-out Dems voted for this right-wing plan — Heitkamp, Manchin and Donnelly.

With the filibuster nuked, look for the next replacement to be someone along the lines of Bannon or O'Reilly.

Republicans Nuke The Filibuster In The Senate — They Can Now Have ANYONE They Want On SCOTUS Comments (0)

Huff Post: The first villain the Republican fascists will install on the Supreme Court is right-wing nut Gorsuch, Friday.

After him, the next time a SCOTUS judge dies or retires, Trump can nominate and have any person he wants, as long as the Republican makeup of the Senate remains secure.

Anyone.

Federal Appeals Court: 1964 Civil Rights Act Applies To LGBTQ People Comments (0)

Via the AP: A federal appeals court in Chicago has ruled that the Civil Rights Act applies to gay people, too, which is the first time any court has made this finding.

Greg Nevins, Employment Fairness Program Director for Lambda Legal, said:

This decision is game changer for lesbian and gay employees facing discrimination in the workplace and sends a clear message to employers: it is against the law to discriminate on the basis of sexual orientation.

Next stop? SCOTUS.

SCOTUS Punts On Gavin Grimm Trans Rights Case, Vacating Favorable Ruling Comments (0)

Via WJLA: Hot on the heels of Trump's decision to erase President Obama's guidelines that helped trans teens on the issue of bathroom rights, the Supreme Court has handed the high-profile Gavin Grimm case to a lower Gavin-grimm-aclu-01_320p court without deciding on its merits:

The justices said Monday they have opted not to decide whether federal anti-discrimination law gives high school senior Gavin Grimm the right to use the boys' bathroom in his Virginia school.

The case had been scheduled for argument in late March. Instead, a lower court in Virginia will be tasked with evaluating the federal law known as title IX and the extent to which it applies to transgender students.

In a short statement, the Court said:

The judgment is vacated, and the case is remanded to the United States Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit for further consideration in light of the guidance document issued by the Department of Education and Department of Justice on February 22, 2017.

The Court specifically vacated that ruling because of the Trump Administration's anti-trans policies. Thank you, Caitlyn Jenner, and any other trans or trans-friendly people who voted for this corrupt, anti-LGBTQ bigot and creamed their panties over how pro-LGBTQ he was gonna be 'cuz he's a sophisticated New Yorker at heart.
