#SCOTUS grants one new case, sets it for argument in April: Oklahoma v. Castro-Huerta, on whether a state has authority to prosecute non-Indians who commit crimes against Indians in Indian country.
More opinions coming on Monday.
#SCOTUS website indicates that the Court is expected to release more opinions on Monday morning at 10 am.
