Saturday, October 14

This week, the justices of the Supreme Court considered cases on maritime law, mortgage escrow accounts, who may assert claims in bankruptcy court, and whether or not a request for a federal hearing over a pandemic-related Executive Order is now moot.

The court heard arguments regarding whether state or federal law should govern the enforceability of maritime choice-of-law insurance clauses. The insured in question was in Pennsylvania, but the contract states the policy is governed by New York law.

The justices are also considering the preemption of state consumer financial laws under the National Bank Act and the payment of interest on mortgage escrow accounts.

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For the justices of the Supreme Court as they determine which cases they will hear at what time.
  • For wisdom for Chief Justice Roberts as he presides over the Supreme Court.
  • For the president and members of his administration to seek God’s guidance as Executive Orders are issued.
