Traditionally, on the Monday after the last day of oral arguments in December, the Court hands down 2-4 opinions to end the calendar year. Well, that day is tomorrow.

OT 07 – 3 cases
OT 06 – 2 cases
OT 05 – 2 cases
OT 04 – 4 cases
OT 03 – 2 cases
OT 02 – 1 cases
OT 01 – 2 cases
OT 00 – 1 case
(Greentree v. Randolph was handed down on 12/11/2000, the same day Bush v. Gore was heard. Bush was handed down the next day, 12/12/2000)

As such, expect 2-4 opinions tomorrow around 10pm EST. The four oldest cases on the docket are Altria Group v. Good (cigarette advertising), Locke v. Karass (government employee unions), Vanden v. Discover Bank (Federal Arbitration Act), and Herring v. US (exclusionary rule.) With that in mind, however, the Court almost never releases cases linearly over time.

Update: I forgot to mention that the Court will also almost certainly deny application for stay in Wrotnowski v. Bysiewicz.
