The Supreme Court has a busy week ahead. The justices return to the virtual bench for oral arguments, starting Monday at 10 a.m. with Pham v. Guzman Chavez, a case about whether certain noncitizens facing deportation are eligible for bond hearings while they assert claims that they are not eligible for removal to a certain country. Our case preview is here. Before the Guzman Chavez argument, at 9:30 a.m., the court is expected to release additional orders from its private conference last week — after granting review in a whopping 14 cases on Friday evening. This Thursday, the court is expected to release one or more opinions in argued cases. And the federal government plans to execute three people on death row this week, meaning the court likely will have to rule on last-minute appeals related to those executions.
