Issues: (1) Whether multiple shipments from different shippers may be aggregated to satisfy the 10,000-cigarette threshold of the Contraband Cigarette Trafficking Act, which prohibits the knowing transportation of “a quantity” of more than 10,000 untaxed cigarettes in the “possession” of unauthorized persons; and (2) whether substantial compliance is a prerequisite to the statutory exemption of the Prevent All Cigarette Trafficking Act of 2009, which exempts the United Parcel Service by name if its tobacco-delivery agreement with New York is “honored” nationwide.

Justice Jackson's investiture ceremony has concluded. After the ceremony, she took the traditional walk down the court's front steps, accompanied by the chief justice. She also shared a moment with her husband, Patrick, on the plaza after the ceremony. Photos by @katieleebarlow.
Today at SCOTUS: The investiture of Ketanji Brown Jackson, the first Black woman to serve as a justice. Jackson was sworn in over the summer, so the investiture is purely ceremonial. Joe Biden and Kamala Harris reportedly are expected to attend the invite-only event at the court.
JUST IN: The Supreme Court will continue to provide a live audio stream of oral arguments in the new term that begins on Monday. https://www.supremecourt.gov/publicinfo/press/pressreleases/pr_09-28-22
SCOTUS releases new "circuit justice" lineup, with Jackson taking over the Boston-based 1st Circuit (formerly handled by Breyer). Each justice reviews emergency appeals from the regions covered by his or her circuits. (Controversial cases usually get referred to the full court.)
Today at SCOTUS: The justices meet privately for their annual "long conference" to review cert petitions that have rolled in over the summer. They'll also likely discuss the status of the Dobbs leak investigation and whether to continue live audio of oral arguments this term.
