Briefly:

  • UPI’s Michael Kirkland reports on the facts and issues in Town of Greece v. Galloway, the challenge to the town’s practice of beginning its council meetings with a prayer, in which the Court heard oral argument in November.
  • At Crime and Consequences, Kent Scheidegger reports on a recent trio of decisions by the Nebraska Supreme Court interpreting the Court’s 2012 decision in Miller v. Alabama, holding unconstitutional sentences of life without the possibility of parole for juveniles convicted of murder.
  • During a recent speech in Hawaii, Justice Antonin Scalia discussed the Court’s decisions in Kelo v. City of New London and Korematsu v. United States.  Ilya Somin discusses the remarks at The Volokh Conspiracy.
  • In The Washington Post, Brian Fung looks at the prospect that the federal government will ask the Court to review a decision by the D.C. Circuit striking down the FCC’s regulations on net neutrality; he concludes that “it’s probably not going to happen.”
