The Court will be handing down one or more opinions tomorrow. It very well could be Raich. Those of you following other cases should please read on.
Using my limited abilities, I created a chart which does the following:
* denotes the cases on the Court's docket
* links to the respective briefs
* provides the oral argument date
* links to the respective slip opinion, if applicable.
In red font are those opinions which I think are likely to be handed down within the next couple of weeks. For those cases, I summarized the legal issues. Please note that the chart is neither perfect in form or substance; but it's better than nothing. If you spot any errors or omissions, please leave a comment. Better yet, download the file, improve it, and post it on your own blog. Anyhow, click here to access the chart.
On Wednesday I expect to see Miller-El v. Dretke and either Granholm v. Heald or Veneman v. Likestock Marketing Ass'n. The reason I don't expect to see both Granholm and Veneman
is because they're both blockbusters. The Court enjoys publicity:
spreading out the "big" cases over the weeks ensures that all eyes
remain on One First Street. Of course, Ashcroft v. Raich could well be the Court's blockbuster.
