    Kennedy’s decisions may not last. It might be his own fault

    ...The uncomfortable fact is that Kennedy’s legacy is as fragile as it is immense. Many of his rulings were decided by a one-justice margin: He supplied the critical fifth vote upholding the right to burn the American flag in Texas v. Johnson in 1989, declaring, “It is poignant but fundamental that the flag protects those who hold it in contempt.”

    Agency: Court Can't Appoint Prosecutor Against Arpaio
    The U.S. Justice Department says an appeals court lacked the power to order the appointment a special prosecutor to pursue an appeal over retired Sheriff Joe Arpaio's pardon

    By JACQUES BILLEAUD, Associated Press

    ...Lawyers are now making arguments over whether the request for a special prosecutor should be heard by a larger panel of the appeals court. The Justice Department argued in a June 22 brief that the appeals court lacks the power to appoint a special prosecutor at this stage in the litigation.
