    :: Thursday, June 28, 2012 ::
    Last night, a good time was had by all with Twitter hashtag game #otherSCOTUSpredictions. Mine mostly had to do with opera. You might look them up while waiting.  --  Oh heck:

    8-1, Radames's sentence commuted. Scalia dissents bc 8th Am does not have proportionality req + his Celeste was weak

    Wotan may take Ring from Fafner non obst. Spearrunes bc novation under duress. 8-1. Scalia: stop f'ing w Ks & operas  

    "Sposarla o pagarla" violates 14th Am rt to marry. Scalia dissents bc desp McDonald v Chi. he's not THAT happy w sdp

    Azucena's murder conv commuted to "adequate provocation" manslaughter & sentence reduced to "time sung"  
    8-1, overturns DH rule. Breyer dissents based on hypo that Scalia, concurring separately, calls "mondo bizarro." real action is in 3rd footnote: dicta stating that a tie does not go to the runner (a position none of the litigants argued)

    Chief announces: "Justice Kennedy has today's opinion, but first, the Court would like to do the Wave."

    Chicken v. Egg set for reargument next term

    And one by @dan_munz that I really liked: Scalia thought Roberts was writing it. Roberts thought Scalia was writing it. Everyone is totes embarrassed.
