Morning coverage of SCOTUS work

Howard Bashman at How Appealing has his usual superlative coverage of all the newspaper stories concerning the Supreme Court's work yesterday

I found particularly interesting the articles, linked here, discussing the Supreme Court's grant of cert in the Kansas v. Marsh, the death penalty case.  (My own recent commentary on Marsh is here and here.) In addition to providing background on the case, the articles discuss the decision by the Kansas legislature to hold off on a "legislative fix" to its capital sentencing statute until the US Supreme Court considered the state's cert petition.

UPDATE:  SCOTUSblog has more great coverage of recent SCOTUS work here, including a link to this interesting Findlaw commentary by Prof. Sherry Colb on last week's Deck decision concerning shackling a defendant during the penalty phase of a capital trial.
