Just wondering. Can a president of the USA,

Ask for a QUICK decision from the Supreme Court? I'm thinking on the Texas new Abortion law! Or any issue facing our country? Just curious here.

2. I am also guessing no...for the same reason as reply number 1...from... yonder..above..

It is up to the Supreme Court to decide, not someone else...Also, Of course...............................


...............The President can ask, the Court doesn't have to follow anything the President asks.."separation of powers"

3. He can ask

But it has as much legal weight as you or I asking. The Court decides cases at its leisure.

4. Glad you asked this

All day I've been wondering how courts step in so quickly when they like (as in Texas) but take forever to defend democracy

6. Yea i also feel that some court decisions are FAST. BUT

Others just DRAG on and on. It's very discouraging when this happens. I'm thinking that IF they DID rule for DUMB ASS texas law then it's really time to ADD more judges!

7. I know it is not supposed to be this way, but it seems to me that it has a lot to do with who

nominated the judges involved. I have not seen a breakdown but I am guessing that a majority of these judges who allowed the Texas abortion law to go back into effect were Trump nominees. Judge Robert Pitman who suspended the law is an Obama nominee.

11. Yes the majority of judges on that circuit were nominated by the Slobfather

It should not be this way - this is partisan farce not constitutional government

16. Are you suggesting that circuit court membership should be evenly divided between parties?

That Biden should have to appoint only Republicans to the Ninth Circuit until there are as many Repubs on that court as Democrats?

5. No. TFG tried that and failed. There are processes that have to be followed

and you don't get to bypass them because you're the president.

8. The Supreme Court can and does move quickly when they want to

Consider how quickly they jumped in and handed the oval office to shrub after in 2000.

But it's the court that deciders when and if they move quickly.

14. Yep. Fo example, they rejected the challenge to the 2020 election in a matter of days.

Texas filed on December 8. The case was over on December 11.

The Court moves ultra fast when there is a compelling reason to do so.

10. Sure. So can I.

Oh, I see. Are they under any obligation to pay any attention to my request? Why, no.
