(The Return of) Ignatz, by Sam Heldman

Tuesday, January 14, 2003

The Supreme Court put out a couple of decisions today: a unanimous decision about transportation law (with a twist involving the scope of the Commerce Clause, states' rights, etc.) that I predicted correctly; and a 5-4 decision upholding a death sentence, which I had predicted incorrectly because my hopes for Justice O'Connor were too high. The death penalty case, Sattazahn, is the first deeply divisive case decided this Term; it will not be the last. The opinions are available at this page on the Supreme Court's site.
