    :: Thursday, June 24, 2010 ::
    To those waiting to find out whether the Court will hold that business process can be patented: you'll have to wait until Monday. Fwiw, SCOTUSBlog is sure (based on who has and has not written opinions from the Court's last round oral arguments this year) that Justice Stevens will write the opinion in the business-processes case (Bilski v. Kappos).

    OMINOUS FOR RELIGIOUS LIBERTY: SCOTUSBlog also predicts that either Justice Ginsburg or Justice Stevens will deliver the opinion in CLS v. Martinez next Monday.

    BUT MAYBE YOU CAN SHOOT BACK: They're also predicting that Justice Alito "has" McDonald v. Chicago, the 2nd-Am-apply-to-states case.

    (Btw, I read these predictions in SCOTUSBlog's live-blogging feed from the Court this morning, and not all of them are still up. Their privilege. I'm just saying what I saw. They're the ones who go Annales over who's written how many opinions from which sitting, and that sort of thing. And we love them for it.)

    One more note on the CLS case before the darkness descends: a shout-out to the CATO Institute for filing an amicus brief (by Richard Epstein) on behalf of CLS, along with the numerous but more predictable organizations that also did so. If you think I always agree with CATO's Supreme Court amicus positions, you'd have to think again, but I always admire the rigor and energy of this organization's defense of freedom.
