Opinions next week — Monday and Thursday at 10:00 a.m. ET.
With 21 opinions to go, #SCOTUS enters the home stretch: Opinions expected on Monday and Thursday again next week, at 10 am Eastern both days. Court will also issue orders from today's conference at 9:30 am on Monday, June 14.
NEW: SCOTUS rules against federal government's interpretation of the Armed Career Criminal Act. Court says a felony involving recklessness does not satisfy the law's "use of physical force" element and thus does not trigger the law's "violent felony" mandatory minimum sentence.
It's a @SCOTUSblog kind of morning
