|17-43||10th Cir. -||Feb 21, 2018||May 14, 2018||8-0||Breyer||OT 2017|
Holding: Wiretap orders authorized by a judge for the federal district of Kansas in the government’s investigation of a suspected Kansas drug distribution ring were not facially insufficient, since they were not lacking any information that the wiretap statute required them to include and since the challenged language authorizing interception outside the court’s territorial jurisdiction was surplus.
Judgment: Affirmed, 8-0, in an opinion by Justice Breyer on May 14, 2018. Justice Gorsuch took no part in the consideration or decision of the case.

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

The Supreme Court has rescinded its COVID-related orders related to filing, but no word on resuming in-person oral arguments in October.
