Judge dismisses senator's lawsuit challenging Obamacare By Donovan Slack, Gannett Washington Bureau WASHINGTON – A federal judge has thrown out Wisconsin Sen. Ron Johnson's lawsuit challenging Obamacare. U.S.
Overall views of the U.S. Supreme Court – and its ideology – have changed only modestly since last measured in April before the court’s end-of-term decisions, including the Hobby Lobby ruling that limits the Affordable Care Act’s contraceptive requirement.
But among liberal Democrats and conservative Republicans there have been sizable changes in opinions of the court; more liberals now view the Supreme Court as conservative – and fewer conservatives view it as liberal – than did so just a few months ago.
A recently formed group of current and former prosecutors says "attack ads" airing to influence Tennessee Supreme Court judicial retention elections are simply untrue.
The group, calling itself Keep Tennessee Courts Fair, met with reporters in a quickly called media conference this afternoon to respond to television ads that began airing this week, along with robocalls and mailers. They're attributing them to the Tennessee Forum and the national Republican State Leadership Committee.
