While much of the tech industry has signed on to a Supreme Court brief arguing in favor of transgender rights, several big names are not on the final list, including Facebook and Google.

Both companies issued statements supporting transgender rights after President Trump withdrew federal guidance on the subject, but a source says neither is signing on to a Supreme Court brief in the case of Gavin Grimm, a Virginia high school student at the center of a case coming before the court next month.

Also missing from the list, the source said, are all four major carriers. T-Mobile and AT&T have spoken out about LGBT issues in the past and T-Mobile CEO John Legere marched in Seattle's Pride event. However, as with immigration, the carriers have avoided publicly opposing Trump, likely because all have pending business for which they need government approval.

Who is on board: The list includes Apple, Amazon, eBay, IBM, Intel, Microsoft, PayPal, Salesforce, Slack and Yahoo.

President Trump wrote in a tweet Saturday morning that Republicans have an "obligation" to fill Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg's seat on the Supreme Court following her death Friday.

What he's saying: "We were put in this position of power and importance to make decisions for the people who so proudly elected us, the most important of which has long been considered to be the selection of United States Supreme Court Justices," the president said, tagging the Republican Party. "We have this obligation, without delay!"

At the Supreme Court steps Friday night hundreds of people gathered to pay tribute to Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg — singing in a candlelight vigil, with some in tears.

Details: If there is a singular mood at the Supreme Court tonight, it’s some kind of a daze manifested by silence.
