    The whole world is watching (the Supreme Court)

    The whole world is watching (the Supreme Court)

    You can check out the live action at ScotusBlog’s live feed.  The Supreme Court’s opinion page updates with new opinions not long after announced in court.

    If either of the two biggies come down, I’ll create a separate post.

    Updates:  Montana campaign case summarily reversed. Case might have ended Citizens United on the state level.  Since summarily reversed, didn’t require briefing or oral argument.  Was 5-4 decision on summary reversal, along expected split.  Decision here.

    Arizona decision — (based on reports from ScotusBlog live feed) reversed in part affirmed in part.  Waiting for details.  Looks like mostly ruled against Arizona, but need to see decision itself.  Looks like upheld provision to check status of persons arrested.  Decision here.

    SB1070 got upheld in part.

    The whole world is not watching this one, but it is important to many of us: There is still this legal matter in a lower court to be dealt with…

    I think the pundits are saturating our news with analysis to the point of enough already. The court should sit on it some more. The easily manipulated segment of the population will move on to an apathetic “whatever” mode, and machinations to astro-turf Scotus with widespread disdain and indignation will fizzle.
