Wednesday round-up

Here is today’s Court coverage, in brief:

  • The WSJ Law Blog, the Washington Post’s Virginia Politics blog, the Virginian-Pilot, the Richmond Times-Dispatch, and Main Justice all have coverage of the Obama Administration’s request that the Court deny Virginia’s petition for certiorari before judgment in that state’s challenge to President Obama’s health-care reform law. Coverage of the government’s brief was also featured in yesterday’s round-up.
  • Weighing in on the debate over the Court and the Judicial Code of Conduct (which we also covered in round-ups Monday and yesterday), the New York Times editorial board argues that “[t]he court’s lack of a recusal policy . . . damages the justices’ credibility and the court’s authority.” (The Hill’s Pundits blog also has a post on the subject.)
  • Finally, at Sentencing Law and Policy, Doug Berman has a post on Tapia v. United States, a sentencing case to be argued in April; Berman worked with Stephanos Bibas, who was appointed to brief and argue the case as an amicus in support of the judgment below, on the case.
