The Supreme Court will sit again on Monday morning for the February sitting and will likey release several opinions. As I mentioned a few weeks ago, the Court has released 5-6 opinions in the first week of its February sitting over the last few years, and we have no reason to assume they won’t release just as many this year. Everyone be watching Justice Ginsburg (who is expected to be at the sitting) very closely to see if she’s lost any of the vigor she has been known for in the past.

Personally, I’ll also have more time to devote because my amicus brief is due in Ricci this week, so I’ll finally be able to get it out the door.
