Comments

According to the New York Times, "[i]n a lamentable 5-to-4 decision earlier this year, the Supreme Court discarded 50 years of legal precedent to make it significantly harder for Americans to assert their legal rights in federal court." This is not my understanding of Twombly and Iqbal.

Twombly, a 7-to-2 decision, written by Justice Souter, "retired" or discarded 50 years of legal precedent. Am I misunderstanding what the Times was referring to?
