Will Obama Push a Politician for the Supreme Court?

February 25, 2016 Nevada Gov. Bri­an San­dov­al might be the only real con­tender to bring polit­ic­al ex­per­i­ence back to the Su­preme Court. The White House is vet­ting San­dov­al, the mod­er­ate Re­pub­lic­an gov­ernor of Nevada, as a po­ten­tial nom­in­ee to re­place the late Justice Ant­on­in Scalia, The Wash­ing­ton Post first re­por­ted Wed­nes­day. He’s an...

Obama’s Second-Term Agenda Hits a Roadblock: the Supreme Court

February 11, 2016 The Su­preme Court might not be as kind to Pres­id­ent Obama’s second-term agenda as it was to his first. The two sig­na­ture ini­ti­at­ives of Obama’s second act—his ex­ec­ut­ive ac­tions on im­mig­ra­tion and new reg­u­la­tions on power plants—are both on hold un­less and un­til the Su­preme Court says they can take...

The Supreme Court Will Decide Whether Obama’s Immigration Plans Live or Die

January 19, 2016 The Su­preme Court has agreed to rule on Pres­id­ent Obama’s ex­ec­ut­ive ac­tions on im­mig­ra­tion, a de­cision that will de­term­ine wheth­er those pro­grams ever see the light of day—and that could upend the pres­id­en­tial race. The Court said Tues­day that it will hear a law­suit chal­len­ging the pro­gram known as DAPA...

At Supreme Court, Ominous Signs for Public-Sector Unions

January 11, 2016 The Su­preme Court signaled Monday that it’s pre­pared to deal a ma­jor blow to pub­lic-sec­tor uni­ons—and may over­turn one of its own pre­ced­ents in the pro­cess. Most of the justices seemed to be­lieve that pub­lic-sec­tor em­ploy­ees who don’t join a uni­on should not have to pay fees that sup­port the...

Justice Department to Supreme Court: Rule On Immigration Quickly

November 20, 2015 The Justice De­part­ment on Fri­day form­ally asked the Su­preme Court to rule on Pres­id­ent Obama’s im­mig­ra­tion pro­grams, as soon as pos­sible. A lower court’s or­der bar­ring im­ple­ment­a­tion of the im­mig­ra­tion pro­gram war­rants “im­me­di­ate re­view,” the Justice De­part­ment said, call­ing the rul­ing an “un­pre­ced­en­ted and mo­ment­ous” in­tru­sion in­to the fed­er­al gov­ern­ment’s...

House GOP Can Pursue Obamacare Lawsuit, Judge Says

September 10, 2015 House Re­pub­lic­ans won a ma­jor vic­tory Wed­nes­day in the latest leg­al battle over Obama­care. A fed­er­al judge in Wash­ing­ton said the GOP has leg­al stand­ing to sue the ad­min­is­tra­tion over its im­ple­ment­a­tion of a partic­u­lar Obama­care pro­gram—a law­suit that threatens bil­lions of dol­lars in health care sub­sidies, while aim­ing to...

Supreme Court: Constitution Protects Birthright Citizenship

August 19, 2015 If a Republican president actually wanted to end birthright citizenship in the U.S., he'd be up against a 117-year-old Supreme Court ruling that essentially called the issue a constitutional no-brainer. Donald Trump, Scott Walker, and Bobby Jindal have all said that the children of undocumented immigrants should not automatically become...

Why Republicans Can't Stop Obama's Executive Actions on Day One

August 17, 2015 The 2016 GOP contenders have made some pretty ambitious and far-reaching plans for their first day in office. Rick Perry said he'd show up on Day One with "a bottle of White-Out … to get started on all those executive orders that Mr. Obama has put his name to." Ted...

EPA Worked To Shield The White House Climate Plan From The Courts

August 5, 2015 President Obama wants his 'Clean Power Plan' to stand the test of time —and the many legal challenges coming its way. To give it a better shot of surviving the judicial system, the Environmental Protection Agency has made several important changes to the rule regulating greenhouse-gas emissions from power plants....

Your Butt-Dials Can Be Recorded, Federal Court Says

July 22, 2015 FROM NEXTGOV arrow Next time you're talking trash, or talking about sensitive business matter, double-check your cell phone—because if you've accidentally butt-dialed someone, it's perfectly legal for that person to record everything you say. A federal appeals court ruled Tuesday that accidental phone calls aren't private. You might not have intended for the...

  • Data-Centric Security vs. Database-Level Security

    Database-level encryption had its origins in the 1990s and early 2000s in response to very basic risks which largely revolved around the theft of servers, backup tapes and other physical-layer assets. As noted in Verizon’s 2014, Data Breach Investigations Report (DBIR)1, threats today are far more advanced and dangerous.
