Good morning and welcome to Supreme Court Brief. The court wraps up week one of the January argument session with Boechler P.C. v. Commissioner of Internal Revenue, a tax case about equitable tolling and the 30-day time limit for filing a petition for review of a notice of determination. Tuesday’s immigration arguments featured a classic Justice Elena Kagan exchange on the meaning of “enjoin.” It was fun to listen to it, but perhaps not so much fun for Deputy U.S. Solicitor General Curtis Gannon. Justice Stephen Breyer has joined the many people experiencing false positives in COVID-19 rapid testing. And scroll down to read how two legal scholars view opinionated opinions criticizing the Supreme Court.
