Lots of morning SCOTUS action
This is likely the last week of Supreme Court activity before the summer recess, although only one major criminal justice case — the Panetti death penalty case — is still pending. Of course, SCOTUSblog and then How Appealing are the places to go for all the Supreme Court news and follow-up.
This post from Lyle Denniston at SCOTUSblog indicates that today's Court action included a notable death-penalty cert grant:
The Supreme Court on Monday granted four cases for review next Term, including a significant test case on the use of references to the O.J. Simpson not-guilty verdict to help persuade an all-white jury to impose a death sentence on a black defendant.

So no Panetti until the fall? Is this unusual?

There's one more day (Thursday) that the Court is scheduled to be in session, so presumably _Panetti_ will come down then.
