Beneath the stern image of former state Supreme Court Justice John DiNoto was a man with compassion, dry wit and love of life, said those who knew him best. He served 14 years on the bench, but in his private life, friends and family said DiNoto loved sailing and fishing with relatives on Long Island Sound and the Great South Bay. A resident of Southold, he relished speaking secret languages with his grandchildren, deer hunting with the family and riding his treasured Harley-Davidson motorcycle to Maine and Canada — and often to work at the courthouse. “He was kind of a rebel in that way,” his son Gregory DiNoto, of Brooklyn, said with a laugh. After battling renal cancer since last fall, John DiNoto died May 9 of complications from the disease at his Southold home. He was 83. Born in Brooklyn in February 1935, DiNoto graduated with law degrees from Dartmouth College and New York Law School and later served as chief clerk of the Nassau County and Surrogate courts … [Read more...] about John DiNoto dies at 83; was prominent former NY Supreme Court judge

Donald Trump’s travel ban targeting citizens from mostly Muslim countries is likely to be upheld by the US Supreme Court after conservative judges signalled support for the president’s right to enact one of his most contentious policies. While the country’s highest court is not due to make known its decision known until June, comments from members of the court suggested they were not prepared to second guess the president on the issue of national security. Dozens of protesters gathered outside the court carrying banners opposing the measure. It was reported that both Chief Justice John Roberts and Justice Anthony Kennedy, who sit on the conservative majority nine-member court, indicated they did not want to question Mr Trump’s justification for introducing the ban by an executive order.

But this isn’t the first time America has taken a stand on this issue. On May 28, 1939, some 937 Jewish refugees fleeing Nazi Germany sailed on the SS St Louis to America, passing so close to Miami the city lights were visible. They sent a cable to President Franklin Roosevelt – it read: “Seeking refuge.” Roosevelt refused to so much as acknowledge the ship’s arrival and denied their request. Running short on supplies and the risk of mass suicide on board exponentially increasing, the SS St Louis and its 937 Jewish refugees were forced to return to Europe. There, 254 of them died at the hands of Nazis. Still, according to American law at the time, President Roosevelt acted legally. A few decades later, the US would achieve an important moral milestone by passing a law … [Read more...] about As the Supreme Court prepares for tomorrow’s hearing on the travel ban, we must remember America’s dark history of failing refugees
