There's an updated version -- now only 15 opinions to go! https://amylhowe.com/2021/06/18/reading-the-tea-leaves-remaining-cases-as-of-june-18/ https://twitter.com/aander1987/status/1406404952113790977

Now do we say that Sonia Sotomayor and the other liberals supported child slavery by all voting for Nestle today? Of course not. And Nestle’s lawyers like @Neal_katyal obviously don’t either. The cheap attacks on the court and thoughtful lawyers did not age well. -tg
The claim @nealkatyal was defending slavery is flat wrong & libelous. Here is what he actually said, which is the reverse: child slavery is abhorrent, criminal, horrific. Remember in a pending case he can't comment, so read what he really said in full.
