12:30 pm
it's almost as bad as the ninth circuit. nothing is as bad as the ninth circuit. >> making the comments in reference to the -- the u.s. supreme court turned down an appeal. david levine is a professor from uc hastings. thanks for being with us. it's more about the legal process than any idea about daca itself, isn't it? >> that's absolutely true. what the united states tried to do was leapfrog the ninth
12:31 pm
circuit and get the u.s. supreme court to take up the case directly from the federal trial judge in san francisco and today is u.s. supreme court just refused to do that. no justice wanted to take it on that expedited basis. the only thing they said is that they expected that the ninth circuit would move quickly to decide the case so that it could go back to the u.s. supreme court in the normal order of things. this says nothing particular about the order from the judge or the order from the judge over in brooklyn who did the same thing. the supreme court is saying let's move it along quickly but we're not going to take extraordinary measures right now. >> does the decision mean participants will be able to renew their status? >> right now that's true. the judge issued a preliminary injunction. in all probability the
12:32 pm
plaintiffs would ultimately prevail on their legal arguments against the executive order which rescinded daca. but what the judge did is he said in the meantime he thought that people who were already in the daca program could renew their applications even past the president's expected expiration date of march 5th. but if you were not currently in daca -- and that's hundreds of thousands -- you can't newly join the program. people were in the program and they'll be able to renew for the time being while the process takes place in the ninth circuit and while the process takes place in the supreme court or if congress gets its act together and they manage to pass some legislation to solve the problem that way. for a few months, the daca  recipients who are in the program -- when they come up for renewal they can file the forms and continue to get a
12:33 pm
renewal. but not somebody new. today's actions lessens the pressure on congress to act. >> it lessens the pressure. that's for sure. at least we won't have the spectacle of the daca recipients all of a sudden being subject to being rounded up. and that's the most interesting thing about what the u.s. government has done in the litigation. they took their appeal to the ninth circuit. and they tried to get the u.s. supreme court to intervene in this extraordinary way and the u.s. government did not seek emergency relief, a stay from the ninth circuit or the u.s. supreme court which would have had the effect of eliminating judge allsup's ruling and restoring the executive order for the time being. and by virtue of not seeing that relief, there's less pressure on congress than there
12:34 pm
would be otherwise. because the 700,000 in daca now are not subject to immediate deportation. >> the supreme court is staying out of the dispute for now. could there be a chance next term that the court decided to take this up? >> absolutely and probably they will. and in fact, the order that they issued although brief, said they were denying review without prejudice means at the right time they would entertain an appeal. let's assume that the ninth circuit and the second circuit reviewing the order decide that the executive order was not proper. then i think the chances are very, very good that the u.s. supreme court will take up the case. now that will be months from now. the briefing schedule in the ninth circuit is such that the briefs will be in by the end of april. and we'll get an oral argument in may or june and a decision
12:35 pm
after that. we're looking at getting to the u.s. supreme court next fall. maybe a decision in early 2019. certainly we're going to get past the election. >> thanks for taking the time this monday afternoon. >> great to talk to both of you. thanks for calling. the california democratic party is not endorsing senator dianne feinstein. kevin de leon -- >> the democratic party after the loss of hillary clinton, i think voters are saying we're tired of the old way of doing democratic politics. we're looking for a new way and a new direction. >> both candidates failed to earn the 60% support needed to win the endorsement. that means neither will get extra campaign crash.
12:36 pm
>> and no endorsement in the governor's race either. 39% goes to gavin newsom. and elaine easton received 20% of the vote. heather locklear has been arrested for felony domestic violence and attacking a police officer. deputies responded to her home on a domestic violence call. he became combative towards an officer. the former melrose place star has struggled with substance abuse in the past and entered rehab last year. lamont smith was arrested at the oakland airport on charges of domestic violence. smith was taken into custody before boarding a flight to return home with his team after

12:44 pm
is because of how meager the snowpack is right now. we are 75 to 80% below where we should be. and the reason that's concerning is because the sierra snowpack is basically the state's water supply come the summertime. so this snow is not your light fluffy snow. this is heavy snow. it's got some real water to it. you throw it up and that's clumpy snow. there's good water in it and that's great news. this will add to the water supply and ultimately to the reservoirs. as always, creating all kinds of issues on the roads and closing lots of schools today as this snow continues to dump. we're pretty low. at the gold run rest area. in the sierra, i'm mike -- back to you. the snow has reached some peaks in the bay area. take a look. nasa weather service tweeted
