Lots of SCOTUS action including a notable cert grant
While I was off-line most of the day, the Supreme Court has one of its most active days of the Term to close out April. Though there were a lot of interesting developments (including the notable posting of a video in the police-chase case), the only SCOTUS action with significant sentencing implications was its grant of certiorari (again) in Medellin v. Texas, which concerns federalism and executive power issues in the case of Jose Ernesto Medellin, a Mexican national convicted of murder and facing execution in Texas.
