    'Rank nonsense': Supreme Court Justice Alito fires back...

    Alito fires back to the media for its trying to wreck another American institution.

    'Rank nonsense': Supreme Court Justice Alito fires back at criticism of 'shadow docket,' blames media

    Supreme Court Associate Justice Samuel Alito on Thursday defended the court's handling of a contentious Texas ban on most abortions and pushed back on criticism of how the justices deal with emergency cases on the "shadow docket."

    His remarks came a day after the Senate Judiciary Committee held a hearing on the court's expedited docket and after a summer in which a majority of the court handed down rulings overturning President Joe Biden's eviction moratorium, blocking his ability to unwind a Trump immigration policy and allowing the Texas ban to stand.

    "In recent weeks, the media has been abuzz with talk about this 'shadow docket' and some political figures have joined in," Alito said at Notre Dame Law School, noting that critics have called attention to late-night rulings that often come without substantial explanation. "This picture is very sinister and threatening, but it is also very misleading." ...
    Experience should teach us to be most on our guard to protect liberty when the government's purposes are beneficent. Men born to freedom are naturally alert to repel invasion of their liberty by evil-minded rulers. The greatest dangers to liberty lurk in insidious encroachment by men of zeal, well-meaning but without understanding.
