Commentary on the cases and the grant comes from Marty Lederman at Balkinization, Gregory Lipper at the Bill of Health Blog, Leland Beck at the Federal Regulations Advisor, Carrie Severino at Bench Memos, and Lyle Denniston at Constitution Daily.
The November sitting resumes today, with oral arguments in the ERISA case Montanile v. Board of Trustees of the National Elevator Industry Health Benefit Plan. Ronald Mann previewed the case for this blog, while Ben Rosales and Thomas Kim do the same for Cornell’s Legal Information Institute.

Commentary on Lockhart v. United States comes from Noah Feldman at Bloomberg View, Marci Hamilton at Hamilton and Griffin on Rights, Steven Mazie for The Economist, and Asher Steinberg at The Narrowest Grounds.
