After the Court released its opinion in Perdue v. Kenny A. yesterday, there was only one case left from the October sitting: Salazar v. Buono. The only justice who hasn’t written a majority opinion from October is Justice Kennedy.

Barring an incredibly surprising turn of events, Justice Kennedy will be writing the majority opinion in that case.

    I wonder if this means that the Court will hold that offender observer no longer have standing to bring Establishment Clause cases. That would be a huge blow to the First Amendment landscape.
