The nation’s top court is fed up. The Supreme Court has been flooded dealing with appeals on rulings of the lower courts. It appears that many of the liberal judges in state and local courts rush to rule against President Trump in any case that comes before them.
The Supreme Court’s comments suggest that some of the judges recognize that the law is treating the current administration with bias. Supporting that inference are some of the rulings lately that have dealt quite harshly with courts in California, Hawaii, and Maryland.
Several of the cases appearing before the Supreme Court are about the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program and the travel ban.
This week the court dealt with which documents the government must release in regards to a lawsuit challenging the ending of DACA. A federal court in California ordered President Trump and his administration to release all the documents having to do with the decision to end DACA.
The government argued that it should not be forced to publicly share sensitive internal deliberations.

When the Supreme Court voted on this issue earlier this month, they were split five to four. This time, however, the justices sent a message to California with their ruling. They called the lower court’s decision “overly broad;”
“The government makes serious arguments that at least portions of the district court’s order are overly broad.”
It also states that the court should have permitted the administration to keep the documents confidential while the arguments were resolved.
Justice Stephen Breyer noted in his dissent this month that it is unusual for the Supreme Court to get involved with the evidence-gathering phase of a trial. Their decision to get involved indicates that they believe the lower courts are acting improperly.
The U.S. Supreme Court appears to have become almost as concerned about judicial overreach as many conservatives are… https://t.co/qTQu9Da9vK

This is not the only ruling that demonstrates the court’s displeasure with the lower courts. In early December, the Supreme Court overturned the rulings issued by two lower courts on the president’s travel ban.
The decisions by the Supreme Court, dissented by Justices Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Sonia Sotomayor, were straightforward. They warn the 4th and 9th Circuit courts to “render [their] decision with appropriate dispatch.”
Experts say the highly unusual wording of the decisions mean the Supreme Court is planning to “take the case and issue the final word as soon as possible.”
Looking at the recent decisions as a whole, the conclusion is that the Supreme Court is paying attention and extremely serious about making sure justice is dealt fairly.
