HolyCoast: Day 2 of Supreme Court Opinions

Day 2 of Supreme Court Opinions

Tomorrow is the 2nd day in which we expect the release of Supreme Court opinions.  Legal Insurrection has this:
There are several really important Supreme Court decisions to be handed down tomorrow at 10 a.m., Monday at 10 a.m., or next Thursday at 10 a.m.

ScotusBlog has a “plain English” summary of the remaining cases, and almost all have huge legal implications (forced union contributions for political purposes, whether FCC indecency standards are unconstitutionally vague, and one which by analogy might be of interest to a certain senatorial candidate, whether a law making it a crime to lie about having received military honors violates the First Amendment).

But let’s face it, the two biggies are the decisions in Arizona v. U.S. over the Arizona immigration law and, by far the biggiest of the biggies, the Obamacare ruling.

When either of those come down, the air will be sucked out of the media on all other issues.  If they are handed down the same day, the nation might collapse from lack of oxygen.
I bet in some ways Obama hopes the controversial opinions come out tomorrow to take the heat off Fast and Furious for at least a few minutes.  However, I'm not expecting them until next Monday.

They have so many opinions yet to release that they're almost certain to add more days to this session.
