The Ring of Fire
Published on Jul 10, 2019
Donald Trump did not have a very good Tuesday, with his administration losing two MAJOR legal battles in a single day. The first occurred when a judge said that Trump cannot block his critics on Twitter, echoing a similar ruling from the lower courts. But the second was much more consequential, with the Court saying that the DOJ cannot swap out their legal team on the census citizenship question lawsuit. Ring of Fire’s Farron Cousins discusses these rulings.

I'll be surprised if the Supreme Court lets that stand.

I'm not following this closely, and am unsure why they want to change the legal team, but that as well sounds like it is unlikely to stand in the Supreme Court. Why can't the executive branch choose their own lawyers to represent them in court?

It's safe to predict that the Supreme Court will push any attempt for a ruling back down to the lower court. Therefore the ruling will stand uncontested.

We're talking about the 2020 Census. A very time sensitive issue. We're sprinting up to the deadline for publication of the actual census. There's probably not enough time to let a new firm or group of lawyers into the mix and let them percolate the legal reason to allow the citizenship question for the census to take place without delay (which would be a violation of the Constitutional requirement).

It is? How so?

If it gets bumped back down to a lower court, it will be with instructions to make a new ruling using new guidelines that the higher court will provide. Therefore in such a situation the previous ruling will not stand.

LOL They don't make such a simple ruling a ping pong game. https://www.advancingjustice-aajc.org/sites/default/files/2018-06/AAJC%20NALEO%20Debunking%20the%20Myths%20re%20Citizenship%20Question%20Final%206.6.2018.pdf.

The U.S. Constitution requires a census every 10 years of all persons living in the country for the purpose of apportioning seats in the U.S. House of Representatives (Article I, sec. 2, clause 3) among the states. The Constitution explicitly requires an “actual Enumeration” of “all persons,” imposing on the federal government the duty to count the “whole number of persons in each State.” Both Republican and Democratic administrations, through the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ), have confirmed unequivocally that the Constitution requires a count of all persons living in the United States on Census Day, regardless of citizenship status.
