The closer the November elections get, the more likely activity will slow down on the Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee, sources tell Tyrone Richardson. The panel is likely to spend much of its remaining time this year trying to move Trump administration nominations, but that could be tough on a sharply divided committee where every vote counts.
Seven of the HELP Committee’s 11 Democrats are up for re-election, while one Republican seat will open up with Utah Sen. Orrin Hatch’s retirement. Several other panel members may be drafted to hit the campaign trail for their colleagues—especially in battleground states. Read Tyrone’s story here.
Companies sued by their workers in federal court in northern Alabama may want to think about preparing early for the discovery phase if the case ends up before Judge Madeline Hughes Haikala. She was the least likely of the judges in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Alabama to dismiss employment cases in their early stages.
But what about the rest of the court’s judges? When and how often do federal judges in Northern Alabama toss employment lawsuits out of court without review by a jury? How does their handling of job-related lawsuits compare with the judges’ pre-trial dismissal rulings in all lawsuits? Patrick Dorrian drew upon Bloomberg Law’s Litigation Analytics to detail the numbers.

Kennedy has participated in many high profile cases before the court since the passage of the Employee Retirement Income Security Act in 1974. Madison’s story is here.
