But did you read his dissent in Wayfair? There’s a lot of deference to legislatures there. I would’ve thought that he would’ve been a bit more careful to qualify the point if a couple days later he was voting to overturn a 40-year-old precedent.

The original understanding of freedom of speech was clearly: should not have to pay a fee to a union to support contract negotiation as part of a structure in place in half the country regulating the government's relationship with public-sector employees. I mean, it's obvious.

In cell-phone data case (5-4: Roberts + 4 liberals), we have yet another self-styled "narrow" ruling. The watchword of OT 2017.

Fascinating that the Court says historical cell site records -- precise only to a mile or so, and generated only when calls made -- are "near perfect surveillance of location," like GPS monitoring. No cites for that, given that it isn't accurate, I guess.

Whoa, there's a first: in WESTERNGECO LLC v. ION GEOPHYSICAL CORP, Gorsuch and Breyer are the two dissenters. Not exactly bosom buddies.

So...Gorsuch *must* be with AFSCME in Janus, right? Twenty-some states have laws requiring their public-sector unions to collect agency fees.

generally each justice has one maj op per sitting, and only alito is left for March sitting
