Friday round-up

Looking ahead to next month’s oral argument in McCutcheon v. FEC, in which the Court will consider the constitutionality of aggregate limits on campaign contributions, Ciara Torres-Spelliscy explains at Moyers & Company why, in her view, the Justices when voting should “remember the price of a Quarter Pounder in the 1970s.”

At The Hill’s Pundits Blog, Ronald Goldfarb weighs in on the upcoming oral argument in Town of Greece v. Galloway, in which the Court will consider the constitutionality of a legislative prayer practice.  He contends that selecting clergy from different religions to deliver the prayers “hardly corrects the offense nor eliminates the consequential civic divisiveness, sometimes leading to mischief and crime.”

At Crime and Consequences, Kent Scheidegger summarizes some of the capital cases on next week’s “long Conference,” at which the Justices will consider all of the petitions for certiorari that have accumulated over the Court’s summer recess, and links to a spreadsheet that lists all of the sixty-eight capital cases on the Conference.
