Looks like a busy June for SCOTUS
As thoroughly reviewed at SCOTUSblog, the Supreme Court today decided only one argued case and granted cert in only one case. That means that the Court will have a whole lot of (mostly criminal) cases to resolve in its final month of this Term. It also needs to start getting its docket filled up for next Term, too.
I had heard that some Blakely retroactivity cases had been conferenced recently, and I am sure plenty of Booker-related issues keep getting brought to the Court. It will be interesting to see if the Court will take on any additional Blakely or Booker cases anytime soon.

UPDATE: An insightful and informed reader sent me this interesting follow-up on the Supreme Court's work today:
On the Supreme Court's orders list today it gave the petitioner in Schardt v. Payne additional time to pay his docketing fee and file a petition. That is the Ninth Circuit's Blakely retroactivity case, so it looks like maybe the Justices are at least thinking about granting certiorari on that issue.
