Friday round-up

The fall-out continues from Monday’s announcement that the Court would not review the seven petitions arising out of challenges to state bans on same-sex marriage.  Writing for this blog, Lyle summarizes the state of play around the country, while Chris Geidner does the same at BuzzFeed.  Also at this blog, Steven Calabresi continued our symposium discussing the denials with a post that focuses on federal jurisdiction. 

At Law360 (registration required), R. Scott Oswald and Nicholas Woodfield analyze Wednesday’s oral argument in the overtime-pay case Integrity Staffing Solutions v. Busk, while Roger Park reported for this blog on the oral argument that day in Warger v. Shauers.

Yesterday the Court blocked Wisconsin from implementing its voter ID law.  Lyle Denniston covered the order for this blog, while Rick Hasen weighs in at his Election Law Blog.  In another post, Hasen considers why Justices Stephen Breyer and Elena Kagan did not join Justices Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Sonia Sotomayor in Wednesday’s dissent from the Court’s order allowing voting restrictions to go into effect in North Carolina.

A friendly reminder:  We rely on our readers to send us links for the round-up.  If you have or know of a recent (published in the last two or three days) article, post, or op-ed relating to the Court that you’d like us to consider for inclusion in the round-up, please send it to roundup [at]
