The Party of Death


Yesterday, the Supreme Court stayed a District Court order requiring Orange County Jail to take preventative measures to prevent further outbreaks, in perhaps the cruelest use of its shadow docket yet:

There is no legal principle justifying this stay. The only “principle” animating it is the belief of the Republican appointees to the Court that prisoners are subhuman and extraordinary measures need to be taken to expose as many of them to a deadly virus as possible. That’s it. And yet there will always be a legal academic with an angle claiming that elite Republican lawyers are somehow different than Donald Trump and his followers. They aren’t.
