Wednesday round-up


  • In an op-ed for JURIST, David Cortman discusses the significance of the Court’s decision in Reed v. Town of Gilbert and argues that the “impact of the broad protections for free speech the court recognized in Reed will be badly needed far outside of the context of sign regulations.”
  • At Dorf on Law, Eric Segall summarizes a recent panel on transparency at the Court, explaining that it focused primarily on “the lack of cameras at the Supreme Court but also the Justices’ anonymous votes on granting or denying certiorari, the Court’s recusal practices (or lack thereof), and the lack of rules concerning their taxpayer-funded papers.”

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 when we come back, please send it to roundup [at]
