Will the Supreme Court Rehear Kennedy v. Louisiana?

As discussed by SCOTUSblog here, the DOJ on Monday asked the Supreme Court to rehear the case of Kennedy v. Louisiana, in which the Court struck down Louisiana's law permitting the death penalty for child rape.  As discussed in a prior post found here, the Court's ruling failed to take account of a federal law in the military justice system authorizing the death penalty in that instance.  The DOJ's request comes one week after Louisiana also requested the Court to rehear the case.

That's too bad, I don't know if the death penalty is necessary for that crime, but it also makes me feel sick. Did they ever rehear the case, do you know?

There is something about women, they like to stand out. If you are looking for an accessory that can make you stand out, then why not go for pearl and leather French designer jewelry? Pearls and leather may sound unconventional but the combination is one of its own kinds.
