Monday was a big day for the 2014 Supreme Court Challenge, co-sponsored by SCOTUSblog and Bloomberg Law. The Court denied cert. in Morris v. George and issued unanimous reversals in Limelight Networks, Inc. v. Akamai Technologies, Inc. and Nautilus, Inc. v. Biosig Instruments, Inc. Kudos to the five teams that correctly predicted these outcomes: 2K4SK, TheDoomfactoryAnnhilators, Goldman St Johns School of Law, I Respectfully Dissent, and tortfeasors and crowd pleasers. Tom, who picked for SCOTUSblog, maintains a slight hold on first place, with many student teams remaining in the thick of the contest. The top ten teams are posted on the side-panel of this blog; the full standings are posted here.
The five other cert. petitions from this year’s competition have already been decided; the Court granted cert. in Heien v. North Carolina and denied review in Simmons v. Sabine River Authority of Louisiana, Drake v. Jerejian, Galloway v. Mississippi and James v. United States. We are still waiting on the opinions for our other merits cases, American Broadcasting Companies, Inc. v. Aereo, Inc., Republic of Argentina v. NML Capital, Riley v. California, and Susan B. Anthony List v. Driehaus.
