Editorial

You should know that the Honorable Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, who was a jurist in the highest court of the United States passed away on Friday, September 18, 2020, after 07:00 p.m., at the age of 87. Justice Ginsburg was appointed by President Bill Clinton 27 years ago. Her death comes at a politically difficult time in our country, especially during a presidential election year.

It is important that you know that according to the United States Constitution, it is the sole responsibility of the President of the United States to appoint judges to the Supreme Court. This my dear readers, is the Constitution!

  • Under Article II of the Constitution, the president “shall appoint … judges to the Supreme Court,” and the Senate’s role is to provide “advice and consent” Known as the “appointments clause” of the Constitution, it lays out three sequential acts in order to fill a vacancy.First, the nomination by the president; second, the advice and consent of the U.S. Senate; and third, the appointment by the president. There is no exception for the president to refuse to nominate a successor nor is there an exception for senators to refuse to provide advice and consent.
  • Only the president has the constitutional authority to nominate a justice and the Senate does not have any authority until after the president makes a nomination. Although it may be good practice, the president is under no obligation to obtain advice from the Senate before a nomination since the Senate’s duty to provide advice and consent begins only afterthe nomination.

It is also important for you to know that the Constitution also stipulates that the Supreme Court must be composed of 9 (nine) judges. When they are confirmed their appointments are for life. They cannot be easily removed from their appointments. A Supreme Court vacancy becomes available only as a result of death, resignation, retirement, or impeachment. However, impeachment is rare, and difficult to obtain.

Mayor Bill de Blasio today signed into law a package of bills that will expand protections for workers, consumers, and commercial tenants. The bills extend and expand the City’s paid safe and sick leave law to reach more workers, reinforce and extend protections for commercial tenants, and protect the jobs of hotel workers.

“Today is about justice for hard working New Yorkers,” said Mayor Bill de Blasio. “From expanding paid sick leave, to protecting our commercial tenants and hotel workers, these bills are crucial to standing by New Yorkers who have worked through the worst of this pandemic and are now helping our City get back on our feet.”

The bills are:

Intro. 2032-A (Cohen): Aligns the City’s Paid Safe and Sick Leave Law with recently enacted New York State Paid Sick Leave Law. The law expands paid safe and sick leave to employees of small businesses with four or fewer employees and a net income of more than $1 million. This legislation also expands paid leave for workers at the largest businesses, those with 100 or more employees must now provide up to 56 hours of paid sick leave. It also brings domestic workers in line with other private sector workers by allowing them to accrue and use leave the same as other private sector workers.

Intro. 2083-A (Rivera): Amends Local Law 55 of 2020, which temporarily prohibits the enforcement of personal liability provisions in commercial leases or rental agreements involving COVID-19 impacted tenants, by extending the sunset date of this protection from September 30, 2020 to March 31, 2021. 

Intro 2049-A (Levine): Establishes protections for displaced hotel service workers in the event of a sale or transfer of a hotel.New owners will be required to provide existing employment and maintain wages for a period of 90 days.At the end of the 90-day period, the new employer would perform an evaluation of the worker. Intro 2049-A also establishes consumer protections and notice requirements for service disruptions for guests of hotels.

Sport is a big deal in the United States. Watching and playing home-grown sports like football, baseball and basketball are key parts of the nation’s culture, but the big four leagues are also commercial powerhouses, generating more profits than many other competitions could even dream of. 

For example, the Dallas Cowboys generated $425 million of net profit in 2020, up $5 million on the previous year. They also grew their net asset value by 4% to $5.7 billion. In contrast, Liberty Media bought Formula One, a global sport, from Delta Topco for $4.4 billion in 2020. 

This money comes from several sources. Firstly, fans who love their teams pay top dollar to watch them play in person. The price can vary from sport to sport and even from team to team. The average price of a ticket in the NBA varies from as much as $473 for the Los Angeles Lakers to just $58 for the Minnesota Timberwolves. 

Secondly, TV companies pay billions each year for the right to air games on their networks, and sponsors pay a lot to associate themselves with leagues, teams and athletes and get exposure to millions of fans.

Further money is generated through the sports betting markets, millions being spent with sportsbooks each year. This has led the creation of sites like OddsChecker which compare NFL betting odds to help…
