    Breaking: Trump lawyers have asked SCOTUS to allow the travel ban go into effect before ruling on it.

    I think to do this would require 5 votes, though only 4 votes are needed to hear the case on the ban overall. Kennedy is hard to read on immigration and has ruled both for and against them over years. Earlier this year he rejected a govt argument it had the right to revoke citizenship from a Bosnian Serb who failed to disclose her husbands alleged involvement in a unit involved in war crimes. He also wrote an opinion in Boumedienne v United States on the question of whether the SC had jurisdiction over inmates there in the affirmative,

    I personally think maybe Trump should wait until theres a 6-3 conservative majority rather than the present shaky 5-4 one. And Kennedy is not a social conservative.

    Update with more info: This is an appeal by the admin to fasttrack the appeal to its next session in October, and to allow the ban come into affect until then. Requires 5 votes.

    Just a reminder: there's a chance Kennedy announces his retirement on Monday, paving the way for the end of Roe.

    It's unlikely he retires. As I understand it, Kennedy has already hired his full slate of clerks for the next term. Not hiring new clerks is usually a hint to retirement.

    Also, Kennedy has to be aware of the influence he currently yields as the swing voter on so many issues.

    On the other hand, he has brought forward his clerk reunion to end of June 2017 instead of 2019. Normally he has these reunions every 5 years but the last one was in 2013. Is Justice Anthony Kennedy getting ready to resign?

    Yes it's certainly possible and the reunion is a good point. I saw that and there was the excuse that they wanted to do it for his 80th birthday, which was last July, which makes the excuse rather spurious.

    Rumors that Anthony Kennedy might be retiring he is 81. Kennedy would be seen as a centerist and would be considered a swing vote

    There are reportedly 6 unpublished SC opinions. Possible one may be on the travel ban.

    Kellyanne says she won't comment on whether Kennedy and Trump have discussed Kennedy retiring.
