Today is the last scheduled day for decisions and opinions scheduled by the Supreme Court. In the comments to this post, I’ll be glossing the Voting Rights Act, affirmative action, and same-sex marriage cases.* And, of course, setting up a forum for your comments on them too.
* Many people do not expect the affirmative action case to be announced today.
UPDATE: As of Monday, there was no Voting Rights Act or same-sex marriage decision. Here are the decisions that were announced Monday:
- Fisher v. University of Texas (affirmative action)
- Mutual Pharmaceuticals v. Bartlett (Federal pre-emption of state law products liability claims for failure to warn of dangers in pharmaceutical products)
- Ryan v. Schad (procedural handling of stay of execution)
- United States v. Kebodeaux (Federal sex offender registry)
- University of Texas Southwestern Medical School v. Nassar (Title VII retaliation)
- Vance v. Ball State (employer liability for supervisorial harassment under Title VII)
We’re told to expect more opinions Tuesday and another day this week, but it’s not necessarily the case that we’ll get decisions in the other three marquee cases, Perry v. Brown (California’s Proposition 8); Shelby County v. Holder (Voting Rights Act); and United States v. Windsor (DOMA). Links in previous sentence go to lower court opinions which are up for review.
