We will have coverage of that argument as soon as possible after it is finished; the transcript should be available tomorrow afternoon, and the audio will be available on Friday.
Wednesday's live blog will be available here.

Petition for certiorari denied on October 1, 2012
Docket No. Op. Below Argument Opinion Vote Author Term
11-1392 5th Cir. N/A N/A N/A N/A OT 2012

Issue: (1) Whether prisoner free exercise claims should continue to be analyzed under the rationality standard set forth in Turner v. Safley, or, as other courts have recently held, under the neutrality standard set forth in in Employment Division v. Smith; and (2) if prisoner free exercise claims are to be analyzed under the rationality standard set forth in Turner, whether that analysis includes the strict scrutiny requirement fostered in pre-Turner jurisprudence.
