JUST IN: The court says it will continue its current COVID protocols for oral arguments in January and February. The court will continue to provide a live audio stream of all arguments, and the courtroom will remain closed to the public.
A relatively humdrum Monday-morning order list today. No new cases added to the court's docket. https://www.supremecourt.gov/orders/courtorders/120621zor_7lio.pdf
#SCOTUS releases orders from last week's conference, but no new grants today. Here's the full list: https://www.supremecourt.gov/orders/courtorders/120621zor_7lio.pdf
Today at SCOTUS: At 9:30 a.m. EST, the court will release orders from Friday's private conference. Then, starting at 10 a.m., the court will hear arguments in two cases -- one involving immigration and the other involving the management of employee retirement plans.
