It's even worse than it appears.

  • On Twitter Kai Ryssdal asks: "What happens now? I mean, courts/procedure-wise."#
  • I am not a lawyer...#
  • The Supreme Court declined to put a stay order on the law, so Texas can and will presumably enforce it.#
  • But the lawsuits can proceed, as if the SC did nothing.#
  • Here's another question even more ominous imho.#
  • Now that Texas found a way around the Constitution, what other rights can they infringe on this way?#
  • Pick an amendment, it's easy to construct an analog.#
  • Pass a law saying immigrants can't ride on public transportation. If one is caught doing it, you just have to document it and, you (or more likely your employer) can sue the bus driver, the bus company, the city, other passengers. #

You know those obnoxious sites that pop up dialogs when they think you're about to leave, asking you to subscribe to their email newsletter? Well that won't do for Scripting News readers who are a discerning lot, very loyal, but that wouldn't last long if I did rude stuff like that. So here I am at the bottom of the page quietly encouraging you to sign up for the nightly email. It's got everything from the previous day on Scripting, plus the contents of the linkblog and who knows what else we'll get in there. People really love it. I wish I had done it sooner. And every email has an unsub link so if you want to get out, you can, easily -- no questions asked, and no follow-ups. Go ahead and do it, you won't be sorry! :-)
