Dissent Offers a Limited View of the Majority OpinionJustices Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Stephen Breyer, jointly writing for the dissent, argued that the Court should have dismissed the writ of certiorari as improvidently granted. The dissent believed that, because the parties' briefing had focused on the admissibility of expert evidence at the class-certification stage, the Court should not have decided whether the plaintiffs' damages model was adequate to support class certification. In reaching that issue, according to the dissent, the Court had improperly overturned the factual findings of both the lower courts and misapplied substantive antitrust law. Moreover, the dissent noted that the plaintiffs never challenged the need to prove damages on a classwide basis through a common methodology. As a result, the dissent cautioned that the Court's decision "should not be read to require, as a prerequisite to certification, that damages attributable to a classwide injury be measurable on a … [Read more...] about U.S. Supreme Court Rejects Class Certification in Comcast v.

High court and supreme court
Contributing to the interest in and speculation about this case is the vacancy on the Supreme Court created by Justice Antonin Scalia’s recent death. Should the Supreme Court’s deliberations end in a 4-4 tie, the lower court’s ruling would remain intact and undisturbed, thus foreclosing the ability of individuals who would otherwise be qualified for employment authorization under DACA expansion and DAPA to receive employment authorization as the 2014 executive action intended.

The decision of the SC to upload resolutions with reasons is the outcome, in all probabilities, of the resignation of Justice Jayant Patel, the judge of Karnataka High Court. The collegium of the SC came in for sharp criticism over the issue of this resignation. Justice Jayant Patel was in the line of seniority to become the chief justice of the Karnataka High Court. But before that, he was transferred by the collegium headed by CJI Justice Deepak Misra to Allahabad High Court, where he would be third in seniority for becoming the chief justice. I suppose, sensing injustice being done to him, Justice Patel resigned. It’s not the first time that collegium system has come in for sharp criticism. Previously also, we have seen how competent judges could not reach SC for one or the other reasons. The case in point is of Justice A P Shah, who retired as the chief justice of the Delhi High Court. He was never recommended by SC collegium for his elevation to the Supreme Court. Justice … [Read more...] about Supreme Court Starts Doing What It Preaches; But Much More Needs To Be Done
