Recapping the SCOTUS docket discussion
The ACSBlog has this helpful recap of some of the recent discussions of the SCOTUS docket, while Jonathan Soglin at Criminal Appeal sets out four more cert-worthy criminal justices issues in this post. As detailed by the posts linked below, I really enjoy examining how the Supreme Court sets its agenda.
Notably, the latest discussion has not yet zeroed in on the cert pool, which seems to have had a role in cert dynamics in the last decade. There was talk around the time of Chief Justice Roberts' confirmation that try to tweak the cert process; I hope that the new docket debate might get that talk going again.
