Announcement of opinions for Thursday, June 17 - SCOTUSblog
We will be live blogging on Thursday, June 17, as the court releases one or more opinions in argued cases from...
Monday's decision rejecting sentence reductions for low-level crack-cocaine offenders may have been unanimous, but @ekownyankah writes that there is far more going on than the ruling's dry textual analysis might indicate. Read his incisive analysis here:
