 Noble court - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A royal or noble court, as an instrument of government broader than a court of justice, comprises an extended household centered on a patron whose rule may govern law or be governed by it.
A regent or viceroy may hold court during the minority or absence of a hereditary ruler, and even an elected head of state may develop a court-like entourage of unofficial, personally-chosen advisors and "companions", a position first raised to semi-official status in the entourage of Alexander the Great, based on Persian conventions (Fox 1973).
As an example, ambassadors to the United Kingdom are still accredited to the Court of St. James's, and courtiers of the monarchy still have offices in St James' Palace, London.

 Court reporters
Court reporters play a critical role not only in judicial proceedings, but also at every meeting where the spoken word must be preserved as a written transcript.
Court reporters who use either the stenographic or voice-writing method are responsible for a number of duties both before and after transcribing events.
Demand for court reporter services will be spurred by the continuing need for accurate transcription of proceedings in courts and in pretrial depositions, and by the growing need to create captions for live or prerecorded television and to provide other real-time translating services for the deaf and hard-of-hearing community.

 Think Progress: Supreme Court Extra » Judge Roberts and the Court-Stripping Movement
The state courts could continue to rule on the constitutionality of federal legislation, but there would be no final, authoritative interpretation of federal law that would be binding on the country as a whole.
In other words, once the Court has been relieved of its responsibility to say whether a law is unconstitutional, we no longer need to worry about whether, as a federal matter, the law is constitutional or not.
The provision of the act of 1867, affirming the appellate jurisdiction of this court in cases of habeas corpus, is expressly repealed.

Ordinarily, the Court is unwilling to grant review of a criminal case that has not yet been tried, on the theory that the issues may change — or perhaps even vanish — during or after a trial.
And the Court might be especially reluctant to take on Moussaoui’s case before trial, because of the novelty of the issues and also because of the likely strenuous resistance by the Justice Department to Court review at this point.

But instead, as the court found today and as supporters of the law have long argued, those large donations were being used to influence federal elections and were being used to circumvent previous federal election laws.
The court was persuaded today by arguments that supporters of the law have long pushed that they're not restricting speech when they're banning these kinds of donations.
The court's ruling today among other things said that the law was perfectly fine and constitutional when it limited corporations and labor unions from taking money out of their general treasury funds to pay for these kinds of ads.

Defense lawyers for war-on-terrorism detainee Salim Ahmed Hamdan told the Supreme Court Tuesday night that the Court's own role in the plan of the Constitution may be at stake in the interpretation of the new law to strip courts of authority to decide detainee cases.
Urging the Court to go forward and decide his challenge to the "military commissions" set up to try captives for war crimes, his attorneys said that the Court should move cautiously in judging whether it has lost its jurisdiction to proceed under the Detainee Treatment Act of 2005.
The Court is scheduled to consider the dismissal motion at its next private Conference, on Feb. 17, but Hamdan's lawyers urged the Justices not to resolve that issue until it holds a hearing on all of the issues in the case -- an argument now scheduled for March 28.

The district court ruled for Castle Rock on a motion to dismiss, not even a motion for summary judgment, so there was nothing outside the allegations in the initial complaint.
Then, the new district was also invalidated by the New York Court of Appeals (although that court conceded that the "Legislature was perfectly within its authority in attempting to cure the constitutional infirmity of a prior law").
It is notable that the Court did not "GVR" these cases (i.e., grant the petitions, vacate the judgments and remand for reconsideration in light of van Orden and McCreary County) -- something that it ordinarily would have done if, in the Court's view, yesterday's decisions might have had any impact on the lower court judgments.
