The Court has let the parties know that it has accepted their suggestion that the parties in the Hobby Lobby and Conestoga cases not be realigned for purposes of briefing.  So the petitioners and respondents will file their briefs in the ordinary course.  One important exception to the ordinary schedule — also proposed by the parties — is that amicus briefs supporting either party are due together on January 28, 2014.
