Sarah Baumgartel for petitioner – ScotusBlog
Gundy v. United States, presented to the Supreme Court today by Attorney Sarah Baumgartel, Federal Defenders of New York:
Sarah argued that her petitioner’s case, “Combines criminal law-making and executive power in precisely the way that the Constitution was designed to prohibit.” Justice Neil Gorsuch agreed saying Congress gave the attorney general a “blank check.” Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg said that Gorsuch had concisely stated Baumgartel’s argument. Sarah joked she should end her arguments right there, saying “I’ll cede my time,” drawing laughs from the crowd. – The Hill
High praise from RBG. Doesn’t get any better than that!
Lots of great communications with family and friends. Good presents, too. Especially extended time with mAdBen and Dr.Husband for another delectable dining experience at Gramercy Tavern. Small business loan notwithstanding. It’s always worth the investment.
Tiger topped the leaderboard. Sam told Real Jason she loved him. Birthday perfection.
Traditional gift-giving family event seemingly derailed this year. Schedules collided as aunts and uncles couldn’t get it together for the annual celebration. Grandma was the glue. So. Cousins mounted their own coup. A new Colitti Christmas holiday legacy. The next generation. Well done!
Dysfunctional family candle stays true.
76th & Park. Missy’s Apartment. Father’s Day. U.S. Open. 1982.
Still just as crazy. Just not as cute.
President Barack Obama. A lovely man of honor and integrity. A mensch. A role model for young people everywhere. Global peacemaker. Gifted orator. Honest leader. Invested father. Courteous gentleman. Funny, too. As you say farewell tonight, know that we will miss you.
Hope you continue your work with “My Brother’s Keeper Foundation.” Hope you will take any calls from President Trump. He’ll need your counsel. Hope you’ll weigh in on important global and domestic issues in your spirited yet fair way. Hope you’ll succeed in redistricting efforts. Hope you’ll retain your audacity of hope.
Okay. Promise in the New Year not to wax poetic so much. About living in New York City. Again. Finally. Central Park. I get it. Enough about loving it here.
But. This beautiful Christmas Day on Oak Bridge will always be at the top of my bliss list.
