Briefly:

  • At the Princeton Election Consortium, Sam Wang looks at “the crowd wisdom” of the court forecasters who have predicted the outcome in this term’s partisan-gerrymandering cases, Gill v. Whitford and Benisek v. Lamone.
  • In an op-ed at HuffPost, Sean McElwee cites data showing that “[d]espite the Supreme Court coming down on the side of corporate power and against progressives on [a wide range of] issues, progressives’ perspective of a centrist court has grown in recent years.”
  • In an op-ed for The Hill, Jonathan Wood and Michelle Minton weigh in on Murphy v. National Collegiate Athletic Association, a challenge to the federal ban on sports betting, arguing that “[i]f Congress wants to forbid sports gambling, the federal government should bear the costs and political consequences of enforcing that law, rather than dictating to states what their laws shall be.”

We rely on our readers to send us links for our round-up.  If you have or know of a recent (published in the last two or three days) article, post, podcast, or op-ed relating to the Supreme Court that you’d like us to consider for inclusion in the round-up, please send it to roundup [at] scotusblog.com. Thank you!
