Today is the last day of the February sitting.  We are expecting one or more opinions in argued cases this morning and will begin live blogging shortly before ten o’clock.

After issuing opinions, the Justices will hear oral arguments in two cases:  Shelby County v. Holder, followed by American Express Co. v. Italian Colors Restaurant.

In Shelby County, which Lyle previewed yesterday, and which Amy previewed on Monday “In Plain English,” the Court will consider the constitutionality of Section 5 of the Voting Rights Act of 1965. Lyle will post his analysis of the oral argument shortly after it concludes; we will also have analysis from Tom and a report from Amy “In Plain English.” In addition, the blog will have commentary on the oral argument from Roger Clegg, Ellen Katz, Abigail Thernstrom, and Elizabeth Wydra.

David Garcia and Leo Caseria previewed the argument in American Express, in which the Court will consider the Federal Arbitration Act and antitrust claims on credit card “swipe fees.”
