Stats Updated

I’ve updated the Term Case Index and the Term Count Spreadsheet.

With the release of three opinions today, the Court now has only seven cases left to decide. It will hand down some on Thursday and the final opinions next Monday. Of the remaining cases, the two attracting the most media attention are Safford Unified School Dist. #1 v. Redding (strip-search of a 13-year old girl) and Ricci v. DeStefano (affirmative action regarding firefighter’s promotions).
