President Donald Trump’s two Supreme Court appointees are on opposite sides of two of three cases the justices are deciding Tuesday. Justice Neil Gorsuch is joining the court’s liberal justices in ruling that a Washington state Indian tribe doesn’t have to pay a state fuel tax. Gorsuch says an 1855 treaty makes a “handful of modest promises” to the Yakama Nation, including the right to move goods to market freely. Justice Brett Kavanaugh is dissenting, arguing that the treaty merely gives tribal members the same right to travel as everyone else. (Doug Mills/The New York Times via AP, Pool)
