|16-460||D.C.||Nov 1, 2017||Jan 22, 2018||5-4||Ginsburg||OT 2017|
Holding: In the instruction in 28 U.S.C. § 1367(d), which provides that the “period of limitations for” refiling in state court a state claim dismissed along with related federal claims by a federal district court exercising supplemental jurisdiction, “shall be tolled while the claim is pending [in federal court] and for a period of 30 days after it is dismissed unless State law provides for a longer tolling period,” to “toll” a state-law statute-of-limitations period means to hold it in abeyance, i.e., to stop the clock.
Judgment: Reversed and remanded, 5-4, in an opinion by Justice Ginsburg on January 22, 2018. Justice Gorsuch filed a dissenting opinion, in which Justices Kennedy, Thomas and Alito joined.

I really enjoyed getting to chat with the incomparable @AHoweBlogger about (1) why #SCOTUS's "shadow docket" *is* a big deal; (2) why it's so hard to figure out how to include it in broader assessments of the Justices' work; and (3) some possible ways to include it going forward. https://twitter.com/SCOTUSblog/status/1417545384314949635
How do you solve a problem like the shadow docket? @steve_vladeck has some thoughts and shared them with @AHoweBlogger in the latest SCOTUStalk.
The Supreme Court has rescinded its COVID-related orders related to filing, but no word on resuming in-person oral arguments in October.
