The news coming out of the Supreme Court is mostly quiet now, as Justices and clerks plow though opinions and the rest of the world speculates about Justice Souter’s replacement. On that note, Jan Crawford Greenburg has a post on her blog here confirming three of the six members of what she claims is the real short list: Elena Kagan, Diane Wood, and Sonia Sotomayor. On that note, my ideal pick would be Kathleen Sullivan, the woman of my dreams.

The next day for opinions will be May 18, and the Court is likely to hand down more than a few opinions then. Take a look at the number of opinions being handed down after the May recess during the last few terms, then forget that information because I am almost always wrong about these things.

May Opinions
OT05 4
OT06 6
OT07 4

The court will also release orders from the May 14 conference then.
