The Supreme Court’s 2010 term began today, the first Monday in October. The justices reconvened this morning to issue orders and hear oral arguments. To follow along, click over to SCOTUSblog, where their team is live-blogging this morning’s events.
While looking forward to this term, which marks the first time the Court has three female justices, below are links to Supreme Court-related posts from the 2009 term:
“Silent Justice,” about Justice Clarence Thomas’ ongoing silence during oral arguments
“A Typical Case of American Blind Justice?,” about judicial diversity
“Secret Ballots and Certain Named and Unnamed Citizen-Legislators,” about the Court’s Doe v. Reed decision
“Judicially Speaking, Cut the #$*@%!,” about the Court’s FCC v. Fox decision
“No Justice is an Island,’ about Justice Elena Kagan’s nomination
Like last year, I aim to write about decisions that raise interesting issues relevant to the sorts of questions and topics usually covered here.
