Would be nice if a short synopsis was posted of each decision, so those not following these cases have an idea of what is going on.

Death Penalty Opinion.

Scalia is his usual self.
Even accepting JUSTICE BREYER’s rewriting of the Eighth Amendment, his argument is full of internal contradictions and (it must be said) gobbledy-gook. He says that the death penalty is cruel because it is unreliable; but it is convictions, not punishments, that are unreliable.
View Quote

JUSTICE BREYER apparently forgets that one of the plaintiffs in this very case was already in prison when he committed the murder that landed him on death row.
View Quote

Indeed, for the past two decades, JUSTICE BREYER has been the Drum Major in this parade. His invocation of the resultant delay as grounds for abolishing the death penalty calls to mind the man sentenced to death for killing his parents, who pleads for mercy on the ground that he is an orphan.

He's getting blackmailed, or he places beltway popularity above the rule of law.

I'm thinking this one could be BIG.

Finally the EPA has to reasonably consider costs versus benefits.

Of course Kagan disagreed and said $10 billion in annual costs are immaterial to the $5 million estimated savings in health costs annually.

Her reason..........emotional as you would expect from a 'tard...........to paraphrase, "lives could be saved..........blah, blah, blah."

I firmly believe it is both.

Also, Scalia is swinging a big hammer lately. Clearly he has no problem these days with naming and attacking specific judges. Makes me lulz, except for the swirling toilet thing.

She won't retire unless she has some kind of major health event (worse than cancer) that would prevent her from attending oral arguments. I'd bet she'd like to see if HRC wins so a FEMALE POTUS can fill her seat -- remember WJC appointed her. If an R wins she'll just keep hanging on.

I'd have left out the "and (it must be said) gobbledy-gook." It's amusing, but it'd be a more powerful statement to just show the contradictions.

If there was dirt to be found on Roberts the left would have dug it up for his confirmation hearings. Obama doesn't care about SCOTUS opinions. Win or lose, he'll crow or bitch about decisions either way.
