New at SCOTUS: Rick Allen Rhoades, who is set to be executed tomorrow evening in Texas, asks the justices for an emergency stay. Rhoades argues that he has been denied access to trial records that would help him investigate whether the jury selection was tainted by racial bias.
One week from today, the court will begin its new term and the justices will return to the courtroom for the first time since the pandemic hit. Time to dust off those robes and get ready for the first day. Here's our new banner, "back to school" edition, from @Courtartist.
