next season. thanks doc. wow, he already scheduled my pt. i love doctors who work with athletes. does he know you tripped over a basketball? that's a sports injury. at kaiser permanente, we make getting care easy so you can get back on the court quicker. >> the supreme court is back at work. and for the first time since the pandemic started, the justices are meeting in person with the exception of justice brett kavanaugh who recently tested positive for covid-19 this year's term could see landmark rulings on a range of controversial subjects. >> from abortion guns, religion, those and more on the agenda. constitutional law expert and you see hastings professor rory little joining us now live with more on what we can expect. professor, thanks for your time tonight.
texas says been in the news for what happened there as it relates to abortion. can you explain why the case in mississippi is now going to be center stage. >> the court granted review on a few months ago, the texas case came upon an emergency docket and it was signed in an emergency basis. this case from mississippi which will be argued december 1st is a fully fully briefed a case on the merits. we call it, which which explicitly challenges roe versus wade and asked that roe versus wade, the overall. that is a case that will lead to some final decision by the supreme court. probably not until next spring. >> professor. i mean, these are some of the biggest social issues of the day. we're talking about you know, god's got guns and abortion. i mean, is it. it's no accident that they're going to be looking at all of these at once. is it just because.
>> it's not an accident in that they control their agenda and to a large degree. these are the ones that are getting attention. we've got a gun case called ghrelin. we've got a religious case called carson. they're also death penalty cases on the docket. there are criminal law cases this morning. they heard their first argument of the term in an important criminal lockett based and also an important of water rights case which could california dramatically would come out one way versus another. there's age discrimination, disability discrimination on the docket. discrimination on the docket. this is standard for th supreme court to have a lot of big cases. what you're seeing here is the quite unusual. impact and president trump having managed to get 3 justices on the supreme court in ways that a lot of people say we're we're you know, not not legitimate, but questionable and those 3
justices change the political tilt of the court. and that's why these cases are getting so much attention right now. >> just as who is one of the 3, i guess liberal justices on the the 9 member court could be retiring and some democrats want him to retire while you have a democratic president in mister biden. how do you see that scenario playing out and what is precedent for, you know, trying to get someone to retire at quote, unquote, the right time. >> well, the president are trying to get some of tires. not very good because the kind of resent being told what they should do with regard to retirement. probably just like anybody else, you know, justice ginsburg. i did not retire when she could have because she did not expect donald trump to be president. she expected hillary clinton to be president. and then she after 3 and a half year she
struggled mightily stay alive. but she did not. and then the the you know, the republicans put somebody on the supreme court contrary to tradition a tradition that they set 4 years earlier, which is we're not going to approve a nominee while for the presidential election is happening. so this is so, you know, justice briar is being asked to do the same retire now because you never who's going to hit by a bus and can disappear. i think prior resents being told what to do. but i think he also wants to be on this court while they decide is very important. case when she feels very strongly about gun control is one of his a signature issues. and he thinks that if he announces his retirement next. gen the makeup of the senate will change. that will be the same 5050, senate with the same democratic president and he thinks get a replacement on just like you would if you retired today. so i think in his mind there's no
difference. of that does not anticipate the unexpected death of the senate or things like that. >> this is opening up a can of worms and we are short on time. but there has been a discussion about adding justices to the to the 9 to to tip the balance. where does that stand? >> well, it's been there's there's no legislation actually pending the president has said that he's not in favor of that. i think we're in a wait and see moment right now. it's this goes whole hog in the direction of the trump sort of republican party, then you might see a serious democratic push to and scenes to the court. there's no there's no constitutional requirement is the number of justices can be whatever congress sense. but i do think that this court show some moderation. this term we would we would hope that the tradition of the court would continue as an institution. you know, their popularity levels way down right now and
it's going to depend on how they do in the coming months. i think this is a very for their institutional. status. >> fair enough. we'll have to leave it there. but we do appreciate your time. that is professor rory little from you see hastings a constitutional law expert. have a good night. were. ok, thank you. good night. professor. >> today, governor newsom signed a bill aimed at reducing maternal and infant mortality all across our state has be 65 will require the california department of public health too investigate maternal and infant deaths. it calls on them to strengthen research and data collection on racial and socioeconomic factors that contribute to these deaths in poor health outcomes. the bill was authored by east bay senator nancy skinner. she says despite our medical advances more us babies and moms died during childbirth and all other high income countries in these preventable deaths are disproportionately higher for black families. we know the
what we know the why this is the hop. >> s p 65 is the how to really hold ourselves to a higher level of accountability. we've been nibbling at the edges. we've been focused on this issue 3 years. but i had the privilege of being governor. we've talked about in every budget are incremental steps to move forward to close these gaps. but this year i feel like we've done something that will break through. >> as the 65 will also include medical for july's and extend medical eligibility for people in post partum. >> johnson and johnson's getting ready to ask for authorization to give its covid-19 booster shot people. the company will send trial results to the fda this week. jj says a second dose of its vaccine reduced moderate and severe cases of covid by as much as 94%. the fda's advisory committee will hold a meeting on the 15th of this month to discuss whether to grant emergency use authorization for that second
