The Supreme Court released the oral argument calendars for the February and March sittings yesterday, leaving five granted cases unscheduled. Those cases are Christopher v. SmithKline Beecham Corp., Dorsey v. U.S., RadLAX Gateway Hotel v. Amalgamated Bank, Arizona v. U.S., and Match-E-Be-Nash-She-Wish Bank v. Patchak. Each of those cases will almost certainly be heard during the April sitting, which runs April 16-25.

Over the past few years, the Court has heard 8-10 cases during the April sitting, so the Court is expected to grant 3-5 cases in January with an eye towards hearing them during this Term. The presence of so many high-profile cases late in the Term–Perry v. Perez, Florida v. DHHS, and Arizona v. US–could lead the Court to hear fewer cases in April than it would otherwise.
