The order list is up on the Court’s website.  There are three grants today: Magner v. Gallagher, Jackson v. Hobbs, and Miller v. Alabama.  The latter two cases will be argued in tandem.  There was also one CVSG:  St. Gobain Ceramics v. Siemens Medical Solutions.

The Court vacated the decision below and remanded to a Florida state court in KPMG LLP v. Cocchi, and there is a summary reversal in Bobby v. Dixon.

There is also a statement by Justice Alito, joined by Justices Breyer and Scalia, respecting the denial of certiorari in Buck v. Thaler, as well as a dissent from the denial of certiorari by Justice Sotomayor, joined by Justice Kagan.

The Court declined to act on a motion by the respondent in Knox v. SEIU, slated for oral argument later this Term, to dismiss the case as moot; the Court indicated that further consideration of the motion would be “deferred to the hearing of the case on the merits.”
