SUPREME COURT ISSUES THIRD OPINION IN TWO WEEKS CONCERNING TEXAS

Considering there are 50 states it is amazing three opinion would come down involving Texas in two weeks.  I have not seen the final number but I expect it will show there were only 70-80 opinions this term.  In addition to these three there were others from Texas.

First we saw the immigration order from Judge Hanen effectively affirmed because of a tie vote thereby leaving the Court of Appeals decision intact.  This will change after the election, assuming Hillary Clinton wins the White House.

The Court then affirmed as constitutional the admission process at U.T. in which an Anglo plaintiff claimed it was discriminatory against Anglos.

Today the Court in a 5/3 decision found Texas' new restrictive abortion unconstitutional.
