Anticipating the SCOTUS summer heat
After a relatively quiet decision day last Tuesday, I noted in this post that the Supreme Court has many (mostly criminal) cases to resolve in June and that the Court needs to start filling up its docket for next Term. It appears that the MSM is all over these same stories:
- Gina Holland has this AP article noting that the "Justices are running well behind in filling their argument calendar for the term that begins in the fall." The article notes that "Chief Justice John Roberts said last fall he would like to see the Supreme Court take up more cases. So far, however, his arrival has had the opposite effect."
- At CNN.com, Bill Mears has a pair of articles (here and here) exploring the work of the Roberts' Court to date and the work ahead the rest of this Term. One article starts this way: "The Supreme Court has shown a surprising degree of unanimity and harmony since Chief Justice John Roberts took over last fall. But recent signs of tension and a rush to finish the court's work by month's end could fray the justices' tenuous show of unity."
