    Preparing for Supreme Court opinion-release-aggeddon.

    Preparing for Supreme Court opinion-release-aggeddon.

    There are several really important Supreme Court decisions to be handed down tomorrow at 10 a.m., Monday at 10 a.m., or next Thursday at 10 a.m.

    ScotusBlog has a “plain English” summary of the remaining cases, and almost all have huge legal implications (forced union contributions for political purposes, whether FCC indecency standards are unconstitutionally vague, and one which by analogy might be of interest to a certain senatorial candidate, whether a law making it a crime to lie about having received military honors violates the First Amendment).

    But let’s face it, the two biggies are the decisions in Arizona v. U.S. over the Arizona immigration law and, by far the biggiest of the biggies, the Obamacare ruling.

    When either of those come down, the air will be sucked out of the media on all other issues.  If they are handed down the same day, the nation might collapse from lack of oxygen.

    I hope they don’t hold either of the biggies until next Thursday, out of deference for the desire of bloggers not to have to work too hard during any part of the pre-July 4th weekend.

    Prepare for opinion-release-aggeddon.

    I know it’s a side case – what’s the scoop on KNOX V SEIU?
