Supreme Court this week To recap the cases up for argument this week: U.S. v. Recio, the case about a particular facet of the definition of "conspiracy," is discussed here. Moseley v. Victoria's Secret, about trademark dilution, is discussed here. Smith v. Doe and Ct. v. Doe, about sex-offender registration laws under the Ex Post Facto and Due Process clauses respectively, are discussed here. I'm predicting reversal in all four cases, though I could very very easily be wrong about Moseley. (Of course, I could be wrong about everything. You know that.) Don't be surprised if the Court puts out one or two more opinions, unanimous or nearly-so, in cases argued last month; I've got my eye on Howsam v. Dean Witter (about time limits in arbitration) and Barnhart v. Peabody Coal (about coal miners' benefits).
