Big Supreme Court Day: Ruling in Trump's Favor on Presidential Immunity, social media, business

Monday, July 1, served as a major day for the Supreme Court ahead of their upcoming summer recess.

The Court ruled in favor of President Trump regarding the case on immunity.

Fox News reported: "The Supreme Court ruled in Trump v. United States that a former president has substantial immunity from prosecution for official acts committed while in office, but not for unofficial acts."

The Supreme Court's decision may effectively delay the trial of the case against Trump regarding the 2020 election.

In response to the news, Trump wrote: "Today’s Historic Decision by the Supreme Court should end all of Crooked Joe Biden’s Witch Hunts against me, including the New York Hoaxes - The Manhattan SCAM cooked up by Soros backed D.A., Alvin Bragg, Racist New York Attorney General Tish James’ shameless ATTACK on the amazing business that I have built, and the FAKE Bergdorf’s “case.” PROUD TO BE AN AMERICAN!"

The Supreme Court also declined to rule on a case regarding the states' rights in barring social media giants from moderating content.

All Justices unanimously ruled to return to the lower courts a case brought against Florida and Texas whether the states have the right to curb the power of social media companies to moderate content. 

According to The New York Times, "Justice Elena Kagan, writing for the majority, noted that neither lower appeals courts had properly analyzed the First Amendment challenges to the Florida and Texas laws."

Additionally, the Supreme Court ruled on a case involving companies and their time to challenge regulations.

In a 6-3 vote, the Supreme Court gave companies more time to challenge many regulations, ruling that a 6-year statute of limitations for filing lawsuits begins to run when a regulation first affects a company rather than when it is first issued.
