Supreme Court acting very civil today

As detailed over at SCOTUSblog and How Appealing, the Supreme Court issued four opinions and granted cert in two new cases, none of which involved significant criminal matters (and none involved 5-4 splits).  Thus, the wait continues for highly anticipated ruling in the GTMO cases and Heller and Kennedy and sleepers like Irizarry and Greenlaw. 

Apparently, Thursday is the next scheduled day for the release of opinions, and all these opinions are likely to be released before the end of this month.  So, sentencing fans, June is sure to be a hot month even though it has gotten off to a relatively slow start.
