Briefly:

  • In the Los Angeles Times, David Savage looks at a group of “potentially powerful” First Amendment cases pending at the Court this Term, observing both that “all of them com[e] from groups on the right” and that, “in nearly every case, liberal groups . . . are taking the opposing side, supporting state and federal laws that have come under attack for infringing upon the rights of conservatives.”
  • In an op-ed for The New York Times, Linda Greenhouse considers “how far the Supreme Court should go to acknowledge the real-world context of its decisions.”
  • In an interview with ReasonTV (video), C-SPAN founder Brian Lamb discusses cameras at the Supreme Court (or the lack thereof).
  • At Cato at Liberty, Ilya Shapiro and Julio Colomba discuss the amicus brief that Cato joined in support of New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, who has filed a cert. petition in which he asks the Court to weigh in on the constitutionality of a federal law that prohibits most states, including New Jersey, from licensing or authorizing sports gambling.
