SCOTUS Decision of Interest: Elgin v. Department of the Treasury
Last week the Supreme Court issued its decision in Elgin v. Department of the Treasury, a case with some interesting federal courts issues and that yielded an intriguing 6-3 split: Thomas writing for the majority, joined by Roberts, Scalia, Kennedy, Breyer and Sotomayor. Alito writes the dissent, joined by Ginsburg and Kagan.
SCOTUSblog’s Opinion Analysis, by Prof. Steve Vladeck (American University), is also worth a read.
